Due to the lack of access to and high cost of pharmaceutical drugs many natural products are used to treat human skin diseases. She intends to collect these known medicinal plants and isolate active compounds which will be studied using synthetic and computational aspects in drugs discovery and development to come up with affordable microbial skin infections and burns treatments. Most herbal skin care medicines that are used now are not clinically proven; her products would go through clinical trials prior to their use to provide better, safer and affordable natural treatments for skin infections and burns.
