(Microbiology Project Topics & Materials)

Four medicated soaps (Ghana soap, Tetmosol, Beneks’, and Crusader) were investigated for their

antibacterial activities against Staphylococcus aureus and Staphylococcus epidermis. A total number

of thirty (30) students of Western Delta University, Oghara, Delta state, 15 males and 15 females

were skin swabbed with sterile swab sticks. Identification of the bacterial species was by standard

microbiological techniques. Crusader soap had the mean highest antibacterial activity (15.3 mm)

against Staphylococcus aureus from males, 17.5mm against Staphylococcus aureus from females,

10.7mm against Staphylococcus epidermidis from females and 13.0mm against Staphylococcus

epidermidis from males) while Beneks’ exhibited the least zone of inhibition 9.5mm against

Staphylococcus aureus from females, 3.3mm against Staphylococcus epidermidis from males and

1.2mm against Staphylococcus epidermidis from females except for one occasion where Tetmosol

exhibited the lowest antibacterial activity with the mean zone of inhibition measuring 7.3mm. Nonsignificant

differences (P>0.05) were observed, except on one occasion were a P value of 0.0093 was

observed. Majority of the medicated soaps analysed showed satisfactory antibacterial activity. The

use of medicated soaps is thus recommended in homes, schools, offices and hospitals as a way of

minimizing or stopping infections that are hitherto spread through contact.
