The present work was aimed to formulate face pack containing Chamomile and Rice flour as main ingredient and other natural ingredients like liquorice powder, rose petals powder and Orange peel powder. Five different formulations of face pack was formulated and evaluated for physical parameters, Flow properties, irritation studies and for stability studies and the all formulations shown good physical properties. Patch test was performed by applying the face pack with rose water. All the formulations shown good physical properties and pH near to neutral. The flow properties were good for the five formulations. The formulation F2 shown mild to moderate irritation during Primary irritation, Delayed hyper sensitivity and Photo irritation and the remaining formulations were found to be completely free from irritation. During stability studies all formulations shown good physical properties except a slight change in pH. The flow properties of the formulations after stability studies were changed slightly. We conclude the present study that the face pack containing natural ingredients is a good product for human use and further studies are needed to know the possible benefits of the face pack.
