Abstract :

Skin is the vital barrier against abrasion, chemicals, and pathogens. Proper skin hygiene is the best way to keep your skin healthy. Removing dead cells, dirt and microbes on the surface is key to good hygiene. Herbs are generally defined as non-woody plants, which die after blooming. This definition has been expanded to any of the plants of which parts or whole can be used in medicinal treatments, culinary preparations, nutritional supplementation, or used as a colouring or cosmetic agents. Today’s there are number of popular active ingredients that claim to cure such infections, still new active is commonly being identified, studied and promoted, because there is always a room to experiment with new ideas. The present project is also a humble attempt in the same direction, where Cinnamomum Camphora has been evaluated microbiologically to check its anti-microbial property against various infectious problems. Cinnamomum Camphora. is commonly used in Indian traditional medicine as antibacterial, antifungal, antioxidant, wound healing, anti-inflammation. It is reported that the Cinnamomum Camphora has antibacterial activity against some gram-negative bacteria. Therefore, this study aims to evaluate antibacterial properties of Cinnamomum Camphora on the bacteria associated with the skin.
