Sreethu K. Sreedharan | Akkhila Maria Andrews | Shaiha M.


Abstract: Shampoo is one of the most popular beauty products that clean the hair. Modern shampoo formulations go far beyond the simple cleaning of hair. Additional benefits are expected, for example, conditioning, smoothing of the hair surface, good health of hair, i. e., hair free of dandruff, dirt, grease, and lice, and, above all, hair that is safe to use. This research involves the development of a solid shampoo using different antidandruff agents in order to respond to the current demands of consumers. The formulation containing salicylic acid was chosen as the best formulation among the six batches. Tests were conducted to determine the requirements for developing a product capable of being able to wash and moisturize while remaining solid before washing. Among the product quality tests, microbiological analysis and dry weight determinations were conducted to calculate the amount of water and volatiles in the shampoo and check for microbial contamination. Using a solid shampoo that is sulphate-free, silicone-free, and plastic-free, a quick and improved way of cleaning was obtained with creamy foam that is abundant and sustainable. Packaging designs were created and recycled paper was used for packaging. In addition, stability tests were conducted for a period of one month and the formulation was found to be stable across all parameters.
