Abstract

Natural colours have gained importance over the last decade as a sustainable option to synthetic colours. Prolonged use of synthetic colours in food and cosmetics are proved hazardous and carcinogenic. In the present study, dyes were extracted from fallen leaves of Terminalia catappa and Tectona grandis, which are commonly available and well known for its medicinal properties such as anthelmintic, antimicrobial and antioxidant. The crude extract was fractionated in n-hexane, acetone and water and was checked for stability. n-hexane extract was found to be most stable and hence it was further analyzed for presence of secondary metabolites. The extracted dyes were separated by TLC analysis to identify presence of pigments and also to check stability of the colors. Antimicrobial properties were analyzed using agar well diffusion method by reconstituting the extract in DMSO in 3 different concentrations. The phytochemical results showed the presence of phytochemical compounds such as alkaloids, tannins, glycosides, flavonoids and phenols. The antimicrobial analysis of the extracts showed considerable inhibition against all organisms. The extract with freshly extracted essential oil from Eucalyptus apodophylla leaves was used as perfume while soap making. The soap possesses antimicrobial and antioxidant activity.

Keywords: Natural dyes, Tectona grandis, Terminalia catappa, Eucalyptus apodophylla, Antimicrobial, Essential oil, organic soap.
