  • Abstract

    Yashtimadhuka Taila (YMT) is an ancient Ayurvedic oil based formulation prescribed for Palita (graying of hair), Keshpatana (falling of hair) and Smasru Patana (falling of beard and moustache). Though YMT is an age old formulation, not much attempt has been made towards its standardization. The current work aims to standardize YMT using modern bioanalytical tools. YMT was prepared in house as per the classical reference and the content of gallic acid from YMT and its ingredients was determined using HPTLC. It was also subjected to preliminary phytochemical, physicochemical and stability evaluation. Skin irritation potential of YMT was tested in rabbits as a safety parameter.
