Abstract: Thalpathe pillium is the series of books, which rewrite the formulae in Ola leaves to protect ancient medicines for future generations. This series contains many remedies for various diseases including hair care and for hair growth. This recipe containing coconut milk (Cocos nucifera), Ixora coccinea and Eclipta alba. The objective of this study was to develop this formula as value added product which mentioned in Thalpathe pillium and compare with its freeze-dried form using basic chemical analysis. According to the results, pH values of both forms are nearly similar. The moisture content of the natural form is higher than the freeze dryer form. Total ash value, water soluble ash value and acid insoluble ash values are less in freeze dryer form than the formula. Both forms of test samples shown similar TLC profiles revealed that those samples contained similar chemical constituents that can induce biological effects. Had given same peeks. Average Rf values are nearly similar. So present study concludes natural form of hair growth promoter and the freeze dryer form of hair growth promoter has mostly similar chemical constitute.
