Kalyani P. and Prof. Dr. Prakash K.*
The topic of this science project is to find out which hand wash liquid washes away more germs. This topic was chosen as one should not be sick and it can be prevent illness by something as simple as washing hands with soap and water. This has to be shared with everyone. This liquid hand wash is made by saponification of oils with caustic soda. When suitable oils are used. Caustic soda produces liquid that will give a rich lather in low concentrations. Besides providing better rinsing than cake or powdered soaps, liquid hand wash is more economical. It is usually made in large batches and sold in bulk,and does not have to go through crutching, drying, milling, grinding, wrapping and packaging operations all of which increase the cost of production. The present research paper relates to synthesis and biological applications of liquid hand wash.
Keywords: Hand wash, chlorhexidine, saponification, Curcumin.
