Covid-19 becomes a global disease that can change many dimensions of human life. In 2022, according to the data from World Health Organization (WHO), the number of covid-19 cases in Indonesia is 6.19 million people. One impact from this case is the change of Indonesia into a new normal era. The existence of a new normal leads to a new obligatory habit which is washing hands. Whereas Rasulullah decreed to wash our hands after waking up from sleep as narrated by Muslim. Using soap and water while washing our hands is the effective technique or method to kill germs. The purpose of this research is to make innovations from basic soap into organic paper soap. This innovation is expected to be an effort to make it easier for people to use soap. Mangosteen peel contains antibacterial substances such as xanthone, tannin, and flavonoid which is 95% effective in inhibiting bacterial growth. Based on the data of Ministry of Environment and Forestry of Indonesia, it mentioned that 57% of Indonesia waste is organic waste. Therefore, this research can also reduce the amount of organic waste which is the mangosteen peel into innovated paper soap using saponification reaction.
