S Revathi, S Parimala Ranganayagi, A Charumathy, K Reshma

Flax seed (Linum usitatissimum) is additionally known as Alsi, is a blue flowering plant that produces two types of flax seed, brown and golden. Flax seed contains omega-3 fatty acid, α-Linolenic Acid (ALA), protein, fiber, Secoisolariciresinol diglucoside (SDG) and phenolics such as phenolic acids, ligands, tannins, flavonoids. Flax gel helps in treat sagging, wringles, retain tightness and moisture skin. The aim of the study is to prepare face gel using Flax seeds, Aloe Vera, Vitamin E oil and then estimate the effects and benefits of face gel on skin, also analyzing the chemical composition of this face gel by using phytochemical test, UV-Spectophotometer and FTIR spectrometer.
