The present research work deals with Development and evaluation of solid lipid micro particles loaded with Grapes (Vitis venifera) seed and Marigold (Calendula officinalis) flower extract, and essential oils of Sea buckthorn (Hippophae rhamnoides )seeds for treatment of acne vulgaris. Compritol (5.0% wt/wt) SLM dispersions were prepared by oil in water emulsification method, using different surfactant concentrations and Extract concentration. The SLM were characterized, in terms of surface morphology, particle size and stability. Solid lipid micro particle technology represents a promising new approach to lipophilic drug delivery. Herbal extract and oils were screened Phytochemical and TLC, HPLC were performed for Qualitative and Quantitative analysis of active constituents present. The formulation have been developed and evaluated,
