Summary: Results & Discussion: considering antibiogram test, there was a statistically significant difference between sesame and sunflower oil (72 hours ozonate) and pure sesame and sunflower oils and ciprofloxacin antibiotic, as well as negative control distilled water after 24 and 48 hours (P0.05). The results showed that antibiotic, ozonated water, ozonated sesame and sunflower oils had 12, 8, 4, and 3 mm inhibition zones after 24 hours on S. aureus bacteria, respectively. The MBC and MIC values of ozonated sunflower and sesame oil on S. aureus were 0.064, 0.032, 0.322 and 0.008 mg/mL, respectively. Sesame and sunflower oils can be used as inhibitors of the growth of S. aureus in pharmaceutical formulations such as wound and burn healing ointments.
