Antimicrobial Activity of different Medicinal Soaps and Turmeric Powder against Infectious Microorganisms Isolated from Wound Area of Human

Mrunali Patel, Mansi Mehta, Gaurav Shah


Abstract: The strains of microbes namelyKlebsiella pneumoniae, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus and Bacillus subtilis were isolated from human wound infected swab, collected from SMIMER (Surat Municipal Institute of Medical Education and Research) hospital, Surat. A number of medicated soaps were assayed for antimicrobial efficacy. The medicinal soaps like dettol, ayush, lifebuoy and pantanjali were used and they showed different antimicrobial activity against isolated infectious bacteria. The most common antimicrobial active ingredients were triclosan, trichloroxylenol and tri-chlorocarbanilide. The best antimicrobial activity was observed in ayush soap sample. Microbial resistance to turmeric powder has been reported in minor amount, which make it a very useful in preventing bacterial infection (e. g. Klebsiella pneumoniae, Staphylococcus aureus, Psuedononas aeruginosa, Escherichia coli, Bacillus subtilis (Nakano MM. , Zuber P. , (1998)) in wounds and in the treatment of infections in chronic wound, it is observed that it may not respond to the antibiotic therapy. Ayush turmeric soap showed higher antimicrobial activity against Klebsiella pneumoniae and other bacteria.
