Organoleptic, pH, homogeneity, dispersion test, irritation test and antibacterial activity tes. The results obtained from this study are that neem leaf ethanol extract and aloe vera gel can be formulated intopreparations hand sanitizer gelwith concentrations of 5%, 10% and 15%, with homogeneous preparations, pH around 6.68-7.03, with dispersion ranges from 4.4cm - 5.5 cm, and stable at 4 weeks of storage..
