Antimicrobial activity of dermocosmetic formulations based on Piptadenia gonoacantha

  • The extract of Piptadenia gonoacantha presents in its chemical constitution phenolic compounds such as rutin, quercetin and 6-hydroxycoumarin.
  • The formulations with P. gonoacantha extract also showed antibacterial activity similar to the extract and substantial equivalence to controls.
  • The fact that the active input is withdrawn from nature, of a large tree, widely distributed in the Atlantic forest, of easy proliferation, reduces the costs of the final formulation.
