Quality evaluation of the product was assessed by using different evaluation methods and the cream showed good spreadability, no skin irritation, no changes of the physical properties, no evidence of phase separation and good consistency during study period. The cream was also evaluated for its antimicrobial activity against various strains of micro-organisms and the antimicrobial activity of the cream was comparable with commercial Silver Sulphadiazine 1% cream. Based on the observations & result, it was concluded that this cream could be used as an alternative for synthetic creams for burn.
