Abstract

Exploration of natural resources use as a hand sanitizer main material needs to be conducted. The use of alcohol as the main material has been giving negative effect in some certain conditions. This research aimed at observing antibacterial activity of leaf celery (Apium graveolens L.) extract toward Staphylococcus aureus as a hand sanitizer preparation. This experimental research covered various concentrations of leaf celery extract i.e. 75%, 50%, 25%, and 10%. The data analysis used was one-way ANOVA. The research results showed that there was no significant effect of leaf celery extract hand sanitizer preparation in inhibiting Staphylococcus aureus growth. Moreover, in a comparison between the leaf celery extract hand sanitizer and the other common hand sanitizer market product, there was also no significant difference in inhibition zone produced, even though the pH value of leaf celery extract was better. The treatment with 10% of leaf celery extract was the best with the inhibition zone diameter was 8.53 mm and pH value was 5.77. This means that the treatment produced the wider inhibition zone diameter compare to the others as well as resulted suitable pH as the topical preparation.
