Background: There is a growing demand to attain and preserve healthy skin. This leads to the complicated synthetic ingredients in the composition of antioxidant soap, whose safety for human health and skin is still unknown.

Goals: The formulation of polyherbal soap and its physicochemical analysis are the focus of this work.

Methods: Glycyrrhiza glabra, Azadirachta indica, Aloe barbedensis, Ocimum tenuiflorum, and Curcuma longa were used to make the herbal soaps, which were then assessed for a number of characteristics, including colour, smell, pH, foam retention (Fr), and foam height (Fh).

Results: The most stable foam, achieved by dissolving a tiny amount of soap in distilled water, can be achieved for almost three minutes and twenty-four seconds using polyherbal soap. Formulas with one or more combinations exhibit significantly more action than those with two or more, according to the results of the soap formulations. In summary, the findings of the research present a viable substitute for the cosmetic sector in the manufacturing of polyherbal soap.

Conclusion: The current investigation involves the formulation and testing of poly herbal soap. There, Polyherbal Soap performs exceptionally well. They also lather well and have good cleansing properties. In addition to brightening the skin, the poly herbal soap will shield it from the production of free radicals.
