|Title:||Formulation development and antimicrobial evaluation of polyherbal soap|
|Abstract:||The aim of our study was to develop the polyherbal hygienic soap by using cold process method and evaluate antimicrobial potential by agar well diffusion method. Soap was prepared using coconut oil, castor oil, Neem oil, Mentha oil, rose petals extract and NaOH (lye) and the different extracts were incorporated into the basic saponification reaction. The herbal formulation was prepared then evaluation for the analysis of pH, Moisture content, foaming index, foam retention time, saponification, TFM determination, ethanol soluble matter and antimicrobial activity using different concentration of soap solution comparing with standard. The results demonstrated that pH 6.5�7, moisture content 3.5%, foam index was 16.5, foam retention time 10.0 minutes, Saponification value was 161.287 mg/ml, 72% TFM, ethanol soluble matter was 63.80% for herbal soap. Also the evaluation tests showed that the herbal soap has satisfactory antimicrobial results as compared to standard antibiotic. Moreover, oils used are added to treat various skin infections and for daily usage.|
