Aloevera leaf was washed with water the gel was separated and collected from the leaf and stored in refrigerator for further studies. Turmeric (curcuma longa) was washed and dried in room temperature and size reduced to fine powder and stored in plastic container in desiccator for further studies. Gels were prepared with gelling agents and with incorporation of excipients and ingredients containing plant extracts. Results: Different gels were prepared with different concentrations of gelling agents. The gel was evaluated for different physicochemical properties which include colour, appearance, consistency, washability, pH, spreadibility, extrudability, viscosity, homogeneity, etc. The prepared gel did not show any phase separation it was stable and did not show any irritation on skin.
