Abstract

Soap is a cleansing agent generated by the chemical reaction of a fatty acid with an alkali metal hydroxide. Chemically verbalizing, it is a salt composed of an alkali metal, such as sodium or potassium, and a mixture of "fatty" carboxylic acids. The cleansing action of soap approaches from its unique ability to surround oil particles, causing them to be dispersed in water and easily rinsed away. The main objectives of this research is to investigate the antibacterial activities of the synthetic and organic soaps against the selected pathogenic bacteria. A total of two different species of raw plants and four different soap brands of organic soap and synthetic soaps of the most commonly used antibacterial soaps were selected. Cucumber and lemon undergo cold pressed extraction, while all soaps were dissolved with distilled water to get the solution. Two types of bacteria namely Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus are go through isolation to get single colony. As a result, raw lemon extraction emerged as by far the most effective preparation and raw cucumber extraction was the least effective. In a nutshell, the results get from this research has been stimulating where the antibacterial soaps were shown to be effective with variations.
