The gel was prepared by using carbopol 940(1%w/v), Ricinus Communis Extract, ethanol, propylene glycol, methyl paraben, propyl paraben, EDTA disodium, tri-ethanolamine and required amount of distilled water. The prepared gels were evaluated for physical appearance, pH, spread ability, drug content, swelling index, diffusion study, viscosity, homogeneity and grittiness.
