Abstract:

Introduction: Herbal soaps, often known as natural soaps, are made from plant-based ingredients and botanical extracts. They offer the skin several advantages since they are made of natural ingredients. Their inherent aroma, antioxidant content, nourishing and moisturizing attributes, and environmental friendliness are a few of the benefits.
Materials and Methods: The preparation of the extract of the Herbal soap is based on Herbal formulation and Evaluation including organoleptic and physic-chemical parameters determination. The pH, Total fatty matter, Alcohol insoluble matter, Foam height, Foam retention, Moisture content were measured and observed. The colour and odour was observed to be Brown, smooth in texture and aromatic odour. 
Discussion: Our study's objective is to create herbal soap through the cold method. Lemon, Aloe vera, Tulsi, Neem, and Ritha were used to make herbal soap. Using varying concentrations of the soap solution in comparison to a standard, the herbal formulation was created and assessed for the measurement of pH, moisture content, foaming height, foam retention duration, saponification, TFM (total fatty matter), and alcohol soluble matter.
