The warm nature of red ginger is possible to be used as a balm because it contains gingerol and shogaol compounds which can produce drug effectiveness as a muscle and joint pain reliever. This study was to find out the best formula for the balsam formulation of red ginger (Zingiber officinale Rosc Var. Rubrum) extract. This research is a controlled group formulation research using a reference formulation modified by phytochemical extracts in red ginger extract (Zingiberis Officinale Rosc Var.Rubrum). This research was conducted in June - August 2022. The research was conducted at the Integrated Laboratory of the Muhammadiyah Cirebon School of Health Sciences. The balsam formulation was determined by making 5 (Five) (FI, FII, FIII, FIV and FV) balsam formulations by varying the red ginger extract with concentrations of 0%, 5%, 10%, 15% and 20%. To obtain balsam preparations with the best formulations, evaluation tests of the preparations were carried out including organoleptic tests, homogeneity tests, pH tests, spreadability tests and adhesion tests and irritation tests. The results showed that the best balsam formulation was from red ginger extract (Zingiberis Officinale Rosc Var.Rubrum).
