Antimicrobial Properties of Deep-Sea Water towards Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus
Keywords:deep sea water, cosmetics, antimicrobial, Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus
With the quick commercial expansion, demand for cosmetics made with natural materials has been rising steadily over time. A potential replacement that is substantially safer than the chemical ingredients would be a deep-sea water (DSW) based cosmetic that mostly consists of organic and biomaterial elements. This research attempts to demonstrate that DSW can be a good alternative to chemical cosmetics by examining its antibacterial capabilities. The antibacterial properties of DSW were ascertained using the well diffusion method and the Mueller Hinton Agar plate technique. Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus, two of the most prevalent bacteria on human skin, were used in the antimicrobial tests. The hollow zones that were produced as a result of the inhibition zones were assessed to demonstrate their potential as a replacement for numerous chemical-based products. This study will serve as a foundation for the widespread use of DSW, which promises to be a safe and sustainable ingredient, in future cosmetics.
