Ex of the cosmetic preparation like Eye Lashes, Eye-shadow, Eye-brows, hair dyes, face powders. In foods and Pharmaceuticals, colours are used to mask the quality or to hike the adulterations. The second reasons is to distinguish one product from the products. A third reason is to distinguish the preparation being administered. PowerPoint Presentation: Classifications of the Colouring Agents: 1. Natural Colouring Agents: 1. Natural Colouring Agents ( A) Plants: Many plants contain colouring agents which may be extracted. And used as colorant. Some Examples are: a. Chlorophyll-green b. Annatto seeds-yellow to orange c. Carots-yellows d. Madder Plant-Reddish Yellow e. Indigo-Blue f. Saffron-Yellow g. Caramel- Burnt Sugar PowerPoint Presentation: (B) Animal: Cochineal: It is an alkaline solution of the soluble Colouring principles caraminic acid of chochineal insects preserved by the addition of glyccerin . It is very dark purplish red liquid. b. Carmine: It is the aluminium lack of the colouring principle obtained from cochineal. It gives red colour to aqueous solution. PowerPoint Presentation: (C) Minerals: Mineral colours are termed pigments. They are used to colour lotions, cosmetics and other preparation for external application. As they are toxic, their use for internal preparation is forbidden. Ex: Red ferric oxide Yellow Ferric Dioxide Titanium dioxide Carbon Black. 2. Synthetic colouring agents: 2. Synthetic colouring agents The sysnthetic colours are coaltar dyes, because many of them are produced from substance obtained from coal-tar. The certified colours are classified into three groups: Group I- F.D. and C. Colours used in foods, drugs and cosmetics. Groups II- The D. and C. Colour used in drug and Cosmetics. Group III- The External D. and C. Colour. Any color found in any of these lists is spoken as permitted color like Blue - Brilliant Blue, Indigo Carmine Green - Fast green, Guinea Green Violet - Wood Violet Red- Amaranth, Erythrosin Scarlet red Yellow - Tartrazine, Sunset Yellow SELECTION OF COLORS:: SELECTION OF COLORS: There are deeply correlation between colour , flavour and sweeteners. Ex: Mint flavour preparation to be coloured green. A Cherry or Rasberry flavoured medicaments if coloured other than red, it is considerably disflavoured . The red color is very much acceptable followed by yellow and green. Blue and black are very less useful. Same in case of medicaments also like pills,tablets and capsules are acceptable in any color while mouthwashes may be yellowish brown or red and lotions are usually colourless to pink. FLAVOURING AGENTS:: FLAVOURING AGENTS: The use of flavour is actually a composite sensation of taste, touch, smell, sound and heat. All above mensioned factors involve a combination of physiochemical and psychological action influence the sensitivity of substances. There are simply four types of tastes - Sweet - Sour - Salty -Bitter And some others are a combination of the above. Similarly there are seven basic odours like - Ethereal - camphoraceous - Musky - Floral -Pepperminty -Pungent -Putrid Classification of flavouring agents: : Classification of flavouring agents: Two Types: 1. Natural and 2. Synthetic Natural a. Fruits (Sweet, Sur and Astringent) -Citrus Fruits (Orange, Lemon) - Rasberry and Strawberries b . Seeds (Vanilla, Anise, Nutmeg) c. Buds/ Flawers -Orange flower water - clove blossoms d. Leaves - Camomile -Thyme - Rosemary PowerPoint Presentation: e. Roots Glycyrrhiza f. Barks/Stems White pine Cinnamon Wild Cherry Bark g. Woods Quassia h. Gums Gum arabic Gum Tragacanth PowerPoint Presentation: 2. Synthetics SR . NO. SYNTHETICS NATURE OF FLAVOUR 1. Benzaldehyde Bitter Almond, Cherry pits 2. Decyl Aldehyde Citrus Flavours (Orange, Lemon) 3. Cinnamic aldehyde Cinnamon type 4. Ionones Berry type flavours 5. Ethyl aceto acetate Cherry flavor 6. Terpene Alcohols Rasberry , strawberry and pineapple 7. Ethylmalonate Wine like flavour Selection of flavours:: Selection of flavours: Taste Characteristics of the drugs like a. Sour - Citrus flavour b. Salty - Butterscotch, apple and sitrus c. Bitter - Chocolate, mint, raberry d. Sweet - Fruit, Berry, Vanilla Dosage Forms: If the Product is thickened, the taste buds are not able to perceive the true flavour . Incompatibility: Vitamin B 12 cannot be combined with aldehyde or esters flavours . Adverse Reaction: Allergic Reaction of flavour Dosing regimen: Age of Patient: Children, Adult, Elder Colour and flavour : - Yellow - Lemon flavour - Red -Cherry 3. SWEETENING AGENTS:: 3.

It contains potent drugs, so dose is measured precisely. Linctuses: Viscous liquid oral preparations that are usually prescribed for the relief of cough. Vehicle is always a syrup and sometimes contains glycerin, because of sweetening taste and soothing effect on mucous membrane. PowerPoint Presentation: FORMULATION OF LINCTUSES: 1. Vehicle: 2. Additives 1. Vehicles: a. Syrup b. Tolu Syrup It also provides aromatic odour and flavour, it has also mild expectorant action. Due to high content (68%) of sucrose, solution tends to crystallise, so stored at constant temperature. Due to high solid and low water content, dissolution of medicament is slow. Sometime glycerol is used as Auxiliary Vehicle . PowerPoint Presentation: 2. Additives: Chemical Stabilizers : Linctuses are self stabilized due to syrup, so no need of any other stabilizer. B. Colouring Agent: Coal-tar dyes Ex: Compound Tartrazine solution C. Flavouring Agent: Syrup itself act as masking agent. Some fruit flavours used are; Lemon and Black current Benzaldehyde and oxymel used as a flavouring agents; PowerPoint Presentation: D. Preservatives: Syrup has preservative action due to high osmotic pressure. Tolu syrup contain Benzoic acid and cinnamic acid as a preservatives. Some other preservatives are -Chloroform spirit -Benzoic acid spirit solution. EXAMPLE OF LINCTUSES: -Codeine Linctuses - Diamorphine Lictus -Compoound Tolu Linctus SYRUPS:: SYRUPS: Definition: “It is concentrated aqueous solution of sucrose mixed wit hsolution of medicaments and others additives.” Generally syrup is prepared by sucrose but is partly replaced by dextrose, glycerin, sorbitol or other polyhydric alcohols to reduce crystallisation of sucrose or to increase solubility of medicaments and other additives.
