    Abstract

    Kajian ini pada mulanya bertujuan untuk mengesahkan nilai terapeutik tumbuhan yang digunakan secara tradisional untuk merawat jangkitan mikrob pada kulit. Berdasarkan hipotesis bahawa ekstrak harus mempunyai aktiviti antimikrob dan antioksida untuk mempercepatkan penyembuhan kulit, sebanyak 120 ekstrak fenolik telah disaring untuk kedua-dua aktiviti. This study was initially aimed to verify the therapeutic values of plants that are traditionally used to treat microbial skin infections. Based on hypothesis that the extracts should have antimicrobial and antioxidant activities in order to accelerate the healing of skin, a total of 120 phenolic extracts were screened for both activities.
