This study intended to combine malunggay and turmeric into herbal soap since both contain ingredients beneficial to the skin. Its specific objectives are: (a) to determine the appropriate proportion of chemicals in producing herbal soap; (b) to develop a technology on malunggay leaves and turmeric juice extraction and production of herbal soap; (c) to determine its acceptability  in terms of appearance, smell and packaging; and (d) compute for the production cost of the herbal soap.
