Abstract: The natural Spirulina Platensis is produced from the natural lake of Yae Kharr lake in Myanmar.The aim of this poster is to apply biomedical application of Zinc Oxide nanoparticles from Spirulina platensis.Average crystallite size of zinc oxide nanoparticles from spirulina platensis was observed to be 17.74nm by using Debye Scherer equation with X ray Diffraction(XRD) instrument.It was found that zinc oxide nanoparticles can be used safely for face cream and nano balm because of the pH value and microbial testing (total plate count, yeast and mold count) of these products and they are under the acceptable level compared literature values.
