ABSTRACT
A prospective bactericidal activity of various market soaps was performed against bacterial strains ie. Staphylococcus spp, Pseudomonas spp and Serratia spp ascertain the efficacy of different soaps in daily use. Minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) were determined by microdilution technique. Among the five soaps such as Lifebuoy, Dettol, Medimix, Savlon and Johnson's Baby, the highest efficacy was performed by Medimix. Second most effective soap was Dettol. Third most effective soap was Lifebuoy where as Savlon and Johnson's Baby exhibited simialr activities, among this Johnson's Baby is the less effective while comparing all other soaps. The bactericidal activities of these soaps were in increasing order in Medimix, Dettol, Lifebuoy, Savlon and Johnson's Baby repectively.
