Abstract:
It is the time for herbal cosmetics as it is the time for looking young and smarter. They are also being widely used forimproving several skin related problems. Herbal cosmetics are also called as natural cosmetics. Skin care cosmetics are being used for several functions like anti-oxidants, anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, anti-septic etc. vitamins are also added in skin care cosmetic formulation. Pigmentation is the reason for various skin related diseases like skin darkens, aging, acne, wrinkles etc. Anti-oxidant property, anti-microbial activity, skin moisture content activity, mushroom tyrosinase inhibitory assay etc are various methods for the evaluation of skin care cosmetics. Natural Cosmaceuticals does not have any side effects to the skin, easy to handle, easy to store, easy to use and offers various beneficial effects to the skin.

ABSTRACT
The most important method for developing the very stable and suitable formulation for thermolabile as well as thermostable drug is lyophilization which works on the principle of sublimation of ice crystal from frozen material. Principle of the process through the basis of formulation, freezing, primary drying and secondary drying . In order to design optimum lyophilization process, process development scientific need to the critical properties of the formulation and how to apply to this information to process design. Lyophilized formulation not only has the advantage of better stability, but also provide easy handling i.e. shipping and storage. This article present an overview of lyophilization process, its advantage and pharmaceutical application.

Abstract.
The aim of this research work was replaced the tablet or injection of Domperidone by using domperidone nasal gel forrmulations. In research, day to day newer novel drug delivery comes for various drugs nasal gel drug delivery system one of them. Purpose of this study is formulating a nasal gel of Domperidone by using natural mucoadhesive agent extract from Dellinia Indica. In vitro drug release study carried out by using Franz-diffusion cell and excised bovine nasal membrane,characterisation was also found to be better in comparison to the HPMC and carbapolsynthetic polymers. Dellinia indica has valuable properties as a mucoadhesive agent because it is considered to be biocompatible, biodegradable and non-toxic. In future nasal gel formulations replace tablet/injection of Domperidone.

ABSTRACT:
The desire of improved palatability in orally administered products has prompted thedevelopment of numerous formulations with improved performance and acceptability. Mouth dissolving tablets (MDTs) have received ever-increasing demand during the last fewdecades, and the field has become a rapidly growing area in the pharmaceutical industry. Theunique property of mouth dissolving tablet is that they are rapidly disintegrating and/ordissolving and release the drug as soon as they come in contact with saliva, thus obviate therequirement of water during administration. this review also provides the detailed concept of some unique patents; technologiesdeveloped and marketed formulations of Mouth Dissolving Tablets(MDTs).The present investigation was undertaken with a view to develop mouth-dissolving tablets which offer a new range of product having desired characteristics and intended benefits. Mouth dissolving tablets are advantageous particularly for pediatric, geriatric and mentally ill patients who have difficulty in swallowing conventional tablets and capsules. The basic approach used in development of MDT is the use of super disintegrants like Crosslinked carboxymethyl cellulose (Croscarmellose), Sodium starch glycolate (Primogel, Explotab). Polyvinylpyrrolidone (Polyplasdone) etc. whichprovide instantaneous disintegration of tablet after putting on tongue, thereby releasing the drug in saliva.

Abstract
A new Nasal drug delivery system of Domperidone has been developed as decent drug delivery by using natural mucoadhesive agent extract from Tamarindus indica L. The mucoadhesive strength, pH, viscosity and gelling property of this natural mucoadhesive agent was found to be higher in comparison to synthetic polymers, hydroxy propyl methyl cellulose (HPMC) and carbopol which are conventionally used for similar purpose. In vitro drug release characteristic through franz-diffusion cell using excised bovine nasal membrane was also found to be better in comparison to the above synthetic polymers. Now patient friendly, needle free dosage form may replace the Domperidone injections/ tablets in future.

Abstract
Microspheres constitute an important part of novel drug delivery system by virtue of their small size and efficient carrier capacity. Microspheres are characteristically free flowing powders consisting of proteins or synthetic polymers having a particle size ranging from 1-1000 μm. The range of Techniques for the preparation of microspheres offers a Variety of opportunities to control aspects of drug administration and enhance the therapeutic efficacy of a given drug. There are various approaches in delivering a therapeutic substance to the target site in a sustained controlled release fashion. One such approach is using microspheres as carriers for drugs also known as micro particles. It is the reliable means to deliver the drug to the target site with specificity, if modified, and to maintain the desired concentration at the site of interest. Microspheres received much attention not only for prolonged release, but also for targeting of anticancer drugs. The purpose of the review is to compile various types of microspheres, different methods to preparation, its applications and also various parameters to evaluate their efficiency.

Abstract
Insulin remains the most effective and durable hypoglycemic agent for the treatment of diabetes. Insulin is a major protein hormone secreted by beta –cells of the pancreas and is important for the control of diabetes. Insulin has an important place in drug therapies for insulin dependent diabetes mellitus (type I) and for many patients with non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (type II). It would be highly advantageous if insulin could be administered orally, because the oral delivery of insulin can mimic the physiological fate of insulin and may provide better glucose homeostasis. The desire to deliver protein and peptide biopharmaceuticals conveniently and effectively has led to the intense investigation of targeted delivery systems. The goal of oral insulin delivery devices is to protect the sensitive drug from proteolytic degradation in the stomach and upper portion of the small intestine.
