The primary purpose of developing an herbal hand wash with a gel basis is to promote "personal hygiene." Hand hygiene is a requirement and one of the most critical processes in the preparation of meals, food service, and house and other day care facilities. On the market, antibacterial hand wash is composed of alcohol-based cleaning products, which have a number of disadvantages. An effort was made to develop a gel-based herbal hand wash utilising Argemone Mexicana extracts to avoid the adverse effects of synthetic hand wash preparations such as itching, dryness, irritation, and dermatitis. The antibacterial activity of the prepared gel hand wash toward E. coli, S. aureus, and P. aeruginosa was determined using the Agar plate diffusion technique. Physical and chemical characteristics such as pH, Viscosity, Foam height, Foam retention, Anti-Microbial Activity, Skin irritation assessment, and other parameters were used to evaluate herbal hand wash, and the results were found to be within normal ranges with minimum to no adverse effects.
