Abstract

Centella Asiatica also commonly known as Gotu Kola or Pegaga is a slender, creeping plant that grows commonly in swampy areas of India, Sri Lanka, Madagascar, South Africa and the tropics. Gotu Kola has marvelous effects on the health. It has been used as a tonic for purification of blood and for promoting healthy skin. It has also has been found to have significant results in healing of skin, other connective tissues. Gotu Kola(pegaga) was used in cosmetics industry in form of bigger particle but in this research the nanopowder of Gotukola (pegaga) will be used for cosmetics applications. With Nanoparticles being so tiny, they form a greater surface area, increases the efficiency of absorption and thus better utilization of the mineral in question. The smaller the particles of any substance, the easier it is to be absorbed. The sample of Gotu Kola from DK Cosmetic that refer from industry sample and sample that produced using ball miller and from laboratory will be compare. The characterization of the Nanopowder of Gotu Kola was analyzed by means of FESEM, FTIR and PSD throughout the whole experimental process.
