Sprouted wheat, Naturals, Encapsulation, Extrusion, Spheronization, Coating pan


India having rich resources of medicinal plants with rich knowledge of its medicinal values since ancient times with that tradition use of botanical extracts ,juices and other potentially unstable cosmetic actives continues to rise. With more and more consumers entering into conscious use personal care products are evolving to meet the changing market needs. Cosmetic Technology is the technology which is concerned with the improvement of skin or to prevent the damage and thus makes the great place in innovatory world Using natural herbs in cosmetics provide an added advantage as this naturals contributes some attributes as they are rich in phytochemical which exhibit many properties to mention few like moisturizing ,antioxidant ,anti-inflammatory ,antimicrobial . Sprouted wheat is one such natural active which has good moisturizing effect .It minimizes roughness and chapping of skin by preventing moisture loss. But if incorporated directly it shows degradation and product is not stable. Ingredient instability drives the need for encapsulation. In response to this formulators look for innovative ways to enhance the appearance of the skin and encourage more youthful healthy appearance and at the same time competition in market favors product with novel and unique delivery system that combines both performance and novelty. The aim of study is to develop a stable product with sprouted wheat in encapsulated form or pellets prepared by extrusion, spheronization and coating pan technique with pressure triggered release mechanism .
