    ABSTRACT:
    Surfactant plays an important role in various drug delivery. To formulate the compounds sparingly soluble in water the surfactants are typically employed to increase solubility. Herbal are materials which have a tendency to preferentially get absorbed at the interface between two phases. The low solubility in biological fluids displayed by about 50% of the drugs still remains the main limitation in oral, parenteral and transdermal administration.
