Aloe vera is a perennial, drought-resisting, succulent plant belongs to the Liliaceae family, which historically has been used for variety of medicinal purposes. It has high medicinal value, such as anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer and anti-diabetic. A phytochemical test were carried out of the plant and screened for alkaloids, saponins, terpenes, leucoanthocyanins and tannins. Alkaloids, saponins and tannins were found in the plant meanwhile leucoanthocyanins and terpenes were absent from the plant. Thin layer chromatography shows that the chloroform: methanol ratio of 9: 1 is the best solvent mixture to separate the compounds in crude extract.
