ABSTRACT:
In-vitro sunscreen activity of cream formulation containing the different extracts of M. nivellei leaves was evaluated through sun protection factor (SPF) determination, by absorption spectroscopy method. All formulations displayed high potency in photoprotection (SPF>40) at 10000 ppm when compared to the cream without extract (SPF=7). Furthermore, the free radical scavenging activity of the different extracts was measured by the DPPH assay. Ethyl acetate extract exhibited the highest potency in scavenging free radicals comparable to BHA. The photoprotective and antioxidant properties of leaves extracts of M. nivellei indicate that this plant is a promising candidate for use in cosmetic formulations.
