Abstract:

Herbal gel is a solid, jelly-like substance that can have properties ranging from soft and weak to hard and tough preparation. It is used topically for a variety of purposes, such as protectants, antiseptics, and antimicrobials. The herbal gel was made by combining Azadirachta indica, Curcuma longa, Berberis aristata and Rubia cordifolia. Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Escherichia coli were used as test subjects for the antibacterial activity. It was shown that the herbal gel had the strongest effect on Staphylococcus aureus (Hand bacteria). To fully understand the mechanism of action and to create a formulation that can be useful in the health sector, more research is required.
