This research was intended to determine the effect of aloe vera gel on aloe vera gel to liquid soap moisturizing. This research used a completely randomized design (CRD) consisting of 5 treatments and 3 replications. Data were analyzed statistically using ANOVA followed by Duncan test's New Multiple Range Test (DNMRT) at 5% level. Treatment in the present research is the addition of aloe vera gel at 0%; 6%; 7%; 8%; and 9%. Observations on the resulting liquid soap products were organoleptic, physical properties, chemical properties of soap, antimicrobial tests, moisturize test activities, and irritation tests. The physical propertiesestest to soaps include viscosity, specific gravity and total foam. For chemical propertiesestest to soaps include pH and alkaline free. The results showed the difference in concentration of aloe vera gel to liquid soap significantly affected to viscosity, pH, antimicrobial and moisture activities of products and not significantly affected to specific gravity, free alkali, and total foam. The best products based on organoleptic tests on liquid soap was treatment B (addition of aloe vera gel 6%).
