    The Aloe vera plant is popular and well known for its medicinal uses across the world. The most popularly known species of Aloe vera which is grown world wide is Aloe barbadensis Miller. Gel derived from Aloe vera is mucilaginous exudate obtained from centre (parenchyma) of the plant leaf. The Aloe vera extract is used for many years as a natural herbal and safe remedy in various skin problems. Several marketed preparations in the form of gels and lotions containing Aloe vera are available. The present study is an attempt to formulate gel formulations of Aloe vera using synthetic polymers like Carbopol 934NF, HPMC and PVP36000. These formulations were prepared in concentrations of 1, 2 and 3% of respective polymers. These gels were further subjected to evaluation of properties like colour, clarity, pH, consistency, and viscosity measurements. Comparison of the results was done in an attempt to find an optimized Aloe vera gel formulation.
