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. Gathering of materials needed. Washing, sterilizing, cutting and extracting of the variable. Weighing of the variable needed.
Statement of the Problem Generally, this study aimed to determine the potential and effect of banana shoot extract as antibacterial soap. Specifically, the study sought to know the following: 1. To determine the antibacterial effect of banana shoot extract as an anti-bacterial soap of this study. 2. To know the effect of banana shoot extract in staphylococcus aureus. 3. To know the number of bacteria removed using the banana shoot extract. 4. To know the characteristics of banana shoot extract as an antibacterial soap in terms of: a. Odor b. Color c. Texture d. Antibacterial Activity Problem
To determine the potential and effect of banana shoot extract as antibacterial soap. Significance of the Study This study gives significance to the researcher, consumer and community people for their daily living by using a cheaper and bio-product antibacterial soap. Researcher. The importance of this research study to the researchers is to sustain their curiosity towards seeking more environment-friendly product that could possibly help others to have more alternative antibacterial soap, and if possible a moisturizer, that would definitely keep the health of the people in their community without spending too much.
They also aimed to access more sources of antibacterial soap due to the alarming crisis that might occur in the nearby future if we won’t act now. Consumers. The investigation of this study introduces to the people that banana shoot extract soap can be potentially used safer other than the commercial antibacterial soap. This study is also significant for those people, who were by incident, stuck in a place where there is limited supply or no supply of antibacterial soap. Indeed this product is not harmful because it contains bio variables.
Community. This study would help our community to prevent bacteria from transmitting. This study also helps saves people from infections. And if proven, for those unfortunate people who can’t afford the antibacterial soaps sold in the market due to the medium standard of their life, this would be another way to secure their health by disinfecting and sanitizing. Methodology A. Materials Materials and Equipments In this research study, the researcher needed the following materials and equipments that were used in conducting the experimentation.
The materials used in this study are; the variables used which are about 150g of banana shoot extract, glycerin and 100ml water. Container where to put the raw materials. Fish net for extracting the banana shoot. The use of mortar and pestle in extracting the banana shoot. Materials in banana shoot: Mortar and pestle, weighing scale, fish net, knife, and boiled water. Materials for glycerin: Knife, weighing scale, and a microwavable container.
Materials for lye: Gloves, lab gowns, weighing scale, and vinegar in case of accidentally pouring the lye in skin. 11 B. General Procedure 1. Collecting the Banana Shoot Prepare 300g of fresh banana shoot. 2. Extracting the Banana Shoot Prepare 150g of banana shoot extract. 3. Preparing the Banana Shoot Extract Get a soap mold where to put the raw materials including glycerin and 150g of banana shoot extract. 4. Preparation for the finish product After 24 hours, remove the finish product from the soap mold. 5.
Testing The testing of the product should be tested in a laboratory. The method to be use is Disc Diffusion method. Mixing of the variables lye and banana shoot extract and glycerin. Putting the mixture in a soap mold. Taking down the results obtained from the experiment done. FLOWCHART Scope and Limitation This study was conducted to test the potentiality of banana shoot extract as an antibacterial soap. The antibacterial potential of the banana shoot extract is well illustrated due to the result of the experiment indicated in this study.
This research study was conducted to help people find cheaper way of disinfecting and sanitizing their hands. The researchers also aimed to investigate the capability of the banana shoot extract to moisturize human skin. The only concern they’ve got is to prove that the banana shoot extract can disinfect and kill the staphylococcus aerus bacteria. This study also aims to prove the moisturization ability, once results were proven to be effective, the researchers would be willing to change the title of this study to further share the knowledge.
This research experimentation was conducted at the researchers’ residences at Pozorrubio, Pangasinan. The making of the glycerin soap variable was conducted at Pozorrubio, Pangasinan where it was roasted. The banana shoots were gathered at Alipangpang Pozorrubio, Pangasinan where the researchers extracted the banana shoot extract. The soap making process was done at Pozorrubio, Pangasinan. The duration of this study is from the month of January to July 2013.
