In this project, we want to see if the homemade sunscreen we made last year can stop bad germs from growing on our skin. We're particularly interested in whether it can stop two types of germs called Staphylococcus epidermidis and Candida albicans. Which will answer, How effective is the homemade sunscreen on protecting our skin from common harmful skin bacteria and fungi? Does the homemade sunscreen prevent the growth of Staphylococcus epidermidis? Does the homemade sunscreen prevent the growth of Candida Albicans?
