Acne vulgaris is a prevalent dermatological condition affecting a significant portion of the global population, particularly adolescents and young adults. Conventional treatments often exhibit limited efficacy and undesirable side effects, necessitating the exploration of alternative therapies. Verbesina flowers have garnered attention for their potential anti- inflammatory, antimicrobial, and antioxidant properties, suggesting their suitability for acne management. This study aimed to develop and evaluate an anti-acne cream formulated with Verbesina flower extract. The cream was subjected to various physicochemical analyses, stability studies, and in vitro and in vivo evaluations to assess its safety and efficacy in acne treatment. Results demonstrate the successful development of a Verbesina flower extract- based anti-acne cream with promising potential for addressing acne vulgaris.
