Hands contaminated with microorganisms can be the cause of infectious diseases in humans. Therefore, hand hygiene is very important to minimize the risk of infectious diseases. One of the efforts to maintain hand hygiene is to clean hands using antiseptic products. In this study, a wet tissue antiseptic preparation was formulated using the active ingredient of 4% Sappan wood (Caesalpinia sappan L.). The objective was to determine the effectiveness of antiseptic preparations of Sappan wood wet tissue using the percent reduction test method on research subject hands. The test was carried out on the test sample, namely wet tissue with 4% sappan wood content, a comparison test, namely wet tissue with 0.3% triclosan, and a negative control test. There were 9 research subjects involved in this study and each received pre and post treatment with the swab method using test samples, comparisons, and negative controls. The results of the statistical analysis of the percentage reduction of the test sample with the comparison using the Paired T test method with = 0.05, obtained p value = 0.832 which means that there is no significant difference in the percentage reduction between the test sample and the comparison preparation. Antiseptic preparations of wet tissue containing 4% ethanol extract of Secang wood have the same antiseptic effect as antiseptic preparations with 0.3% triclosan as the active ingredient. The preparation of Sappan wood wet tissue has the potential to be developed as the natural antiseptic product that is safe and effective.
