The demand for herbal preparations is rising on the global market, and plants have been identified as having potent antimicrobial, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory properties. The purpose of this study is to create and formulate a herbal anti-aging cream and to assess its physicochemical qualities, with a focus on safety and efficacy. Papaya (Carica papaya) seeds were used as natural ingredients in the creation of the oil-in-water (O/W) herbal anti-aging lotion. Beeswax and methyl paraben were also added in various concentrations. Soxhlet extraction was used to extract the seeds after they had been dried. Its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties have been used to treat skin disorders like rashes, dry skin, and ageing skin. Utilizing several evaluation techniques, the product's quality was evaluated. The formulation was assessed based on a variety of factors, including pH, spreadability, and stability, among others. Good spreadability, good consistency, homogeneity, appearance, pH, no signs of phase separation, and ease of removal were all displayed by the formulation. During irritancy trials, the formulation exhibits no redness, edoema, inflammation, or irritation. The skin can be safely used with these formulas. According to these research, the base of the cream and the composition of the extracts are more stable and safe, which may result in a synergistic effect. Conclusion: Antioxidant-rich herbal creams can be utilised to provide a barrier for the skin, keeping it safe and preventing ageing.
