to determine the potential and effect of banana shoot extract as antibacterial soap.
This study aimed the potential of banana shoot extract for the production of an antibacterial soap. The innovation in this study is the utilization of bio-product to use as an antibacterial soap at a very minimal cost. The researchers also aimed that the antibacterial soap could also be a moisturizer. They were still working on the matter and for now, they would justify first the capability of the banana shoot extract as antibacterial soap.
The materials used were banana shoot extract, oil and glycerin soap. There were three treatments prepared where the amount of oil (130g), and sodium hydroxide (25g) and the amount of banana shoot extract was varied. Analysis of Covariance was used in the analysis of the results to determine the significant difference between the experimental antibacterial soap and sold antibacterial soap. Results showed that there was no significant difference between the experimental antibacterial soap and commercially sold antibacterial soap in terms of its antibacterial activity. But in terms of odor T1 was the best treatment; in terms of texture T1 was the best; in terms of color T1 and T2 were the best.
The results showed that 80 percent of the bacteria Staphyloccocus Aureus were killed. The T3 was best among all the treatment. Thus, the researchers concluded that the ability of banana shoot extract as an antibacterial soap was effective. The banana shoot extract was proved to be an alternative, affordable and yet environment-friendly antibacterial soap.
