Personal hygiene is the process of maintaining cleanliness. Failure to maintain adequate personal hygiene can result in illnesses of all kinds. Poor hand-washing practices increase the likelihood of contracting contagious illnesses such as influenza and food-borne illnesses like Salmonella infection. Multipurpose herbal wash is expected to be proven more economical compared to conventional products as the customer may get the desired effect by buying one container of bodywash which can act as a shampoo also. Formulated herbal wash preparations were evaluated for physical parameters like colour, fragrance and chemical parameters like pH, percent of solids contents, viscosity, surface tension, dirt dispersion, cleaning action, foaming ability and foam stability, antimicrobial activity, anti fungal activity and results shown that all were in the accepted limits. Combination of neem and tulsi was found to be effective, easier to produce stable herbal wash formulation. It is having good foaming characters and anti bacterial as well as anti fungal activity. So it can be suitable for both skin and hair care compared to other synthetic preparations.
