Human infections, particularly those involving the skin and mucosal surface constitute a serious problem, especially in tropical and subtropical countries. There has been a worldwide move towards the use of traditional medicines due to concerns over the more invasive, expensive and potentially toxic mainstream practices. In the present study aqueous and ethanolic extracts of Triphala and its individual components (T. chebula, T. belerica and E. officinalis) were tested against the fungus Trichophyton rubrum, Microsporum canis and Aspergillus fumigates. Result showed ethanolic extract had high inhibitory action against the studied fungus when compared to aquesous extract. In both aqueous and ethanolic extract T. chebula showed high inhibitory activity followed by T. belerica, Triphala formulation and E. officinalis. The present study revealed that both individual and combined aqueous and ethanolic extracts of Triphala shown anti-fungal activity and this study also revealed ethanolic extract is an ideal solvent.
Key words: Triphala; T. chebul;, T. belerica; E. officinalis; Anti-fungal activity
