Some effects of soft soaps on cells of staphylococcus aureus

, : Some effects of soft soaps on cells of staphylococcus aureus. Microbios Letters 16(61): 15-22

The bactericidal activity of various soaps was the subject of several studies, but there is no consensus about the ability of soaps to act as antibacterial agents. This study is concerned with investigating the effect of soft soaps on the cells of S. aureus with a view to finding out if these soaps are capable of inducing potentially lethal events within the bacterial cell. Results suggests that the antibacterial activity of the soaps used in this study is related to their ability to induce changes in the optical density of cell suspensions. The leakage of both 260 nm absorbing material and intracellular protein from the cells is also likely to be a contributory factor to the antibacterial activity of these soaps.
