Evaluation of the physical characteristics of solid soap includes organoleptic observation, homogeneity testing, pH test, foam power test. The preparation was evaluated for 4 weeks, the data were analyzed descriptively. The results of this study indicate that a solid soap preparation that is homogeneous, has a dense and smooth texture, has a fragrant aroma, base (white color), F1 (blackish green color), F2 (blackish green color). The average pH value on the basis, F1, F2 is 9.The organoleptic test results on base solid soap preparations, F1, F2 did not change from week 1 to 4. Base solid soap foam power test values, F1, F2 remain stable. The conclusion of this research is that the physical quality of the Moringa leaf extract solid soap meets the SNI requirements.
