    Artificial preservatives and detergents from time to time have been the cause of side effects. A more radical approach in dropping the synthetic ingredients is by incorporating herbal extract whose functionality is good in comparable with other artificial ingredients. Selection of Zizyphus oenoplia (L) MILL leaves extract was based on its particular properties such as detergent and antimicrobial actions. This work was designed to formulate a self preserving shampoo having little concentration of the detergent using Zizyphus oenoplia (L) MILL leaves with emphasis on safety and efficacy of chemical ingredients and avoid the risk. Formulated and prepared the three different herbal shampoos containing dissimilar amounts of Zizyphus oenoplia (L) MILL extract, surfactant used was sodium laureth sulfate. Physicochemical, organoleptic evaluation and tests were performed and compared with herbal marketed product of Himalaya company. The results showed clear shampoos were formulated in F2 and F3 products and their average pH values were in the range of 5.59-6.25, which were suitable to hold on to the acidic cover of scalp. Results showed surface tension reduction, stable foam, wetting effect and good cleaning and pseudo plastic rheological actions. Besides the aesthetic attributes, for example clarity and lather were comparable with the marketed shampoos. The foam volume was on a par and formulas showed higher detergency and foaming effects then the commercial herbal one (p Ë‚ 0.05). Moreover formulation can be considered safe for children due to absence of high chemical contents.
