Abstract : Chitosan has been
widely used in industrial, food, pharmaceuticals and agriculture. Chitosan is a
natural biocompatible polymers means that as nature does not have the side
effect, non-toxic, can not be easily digested and broken down by microbes
(biodegradable). This study aims to determine whether the chitosan may be
formulated into dosage gel hand sanitizer that meets the requirements of the
physical stability of the gel.Chitosan is formulated with 3 varying
concentrations of Na CMC bases of 3%, 4.5% and 6%. Tests performed gel
formulation is the physical stability test which includes organoleptic test,
homogeneity, pH test, dispersive power test, viscosity test and test
consistency. Testing is done every week for 4 weeks of storage.Results of
testing physical properties of chitosan gel hand sanitizer has the shape and
color stable but the resulting aroma change during storage. pH gel meet the
requirements, the consistency test of phase separation does not occur, the
homogeneity test showed no homogeneous gel, dispersive power does not meet gel
the requirements, the viscosity of the gel preparation the third formula does not
