Abstract

This research paper aims to develop a formulation of herbal soap using Tridax procumbens extract known for its multipurpose activity. The study includes the preparation of the herbal soap by incorporating different concentrations of Tridax procumbens extract and evaluating its physicochemical properties such as pH, foam ability, and stability. Additionally, the antimicrobial and antioxidant properties of the formulated herbal soap were assessed using various microbiological and biochemical assays. The results of this study can provide valuable information for the development of herbal soaps with therapeutic benefits. Moreover, this research contributes substantively to the escalating interest in leveraging natural products within the realm of personal care, underscoring the potential for a symbiotic relationship between science and nature in the formulation of innovative and beneficial consumer goods.
