ABSTRACT

This study aimed in developing an antibacterial and antifungal soap utilizing the antibacterial property of Psidium guajava and Citrofortunella microcarpa and the antifungal property of Senna alata L. Experimental research design was utilized in the research which revealed that the developed soap with added extracts of the plants has antibacterial and antifungal property. Moreover, further results revealed that the produced soap is more potent against Staphylococcus aureus than Escherichia coli bacterial samples. Antifungal testing of the soap also revealed its promising antifungal effect against common dry yeast, all under laboratory conditions. Statistical analysis of the data indicates that the produced soap is comparable in terms of its antibacterial property against Staphylococcus aureus property to commercially-existing soaps with triclosan as active ingredient. Also, its antifungal property is also comparable to commercial soaps with Sulfur as active antifungal agent. But the soap’s antibacterial property is limited to Escherichia coli due to its resisting capacity. It is hereby recommended that other hygienic products be produced from these antibacterial and antifungal properties of floral origin.
