Phytochemicals from Boswellia serrata Roxb. ex Colebr plant extract are traditionally used to cure skin disease. It is caused by Staphylococcus aureus. Molecular docking method applied using “Biovia Discovery Studio”. “High positive values of -CDOCKER energy and -CDOCKER interaction energy” suggested that P-cymene can effectively deactivate the shikimate dehydrogenase enzyme thereby interrupting the life cycle of the organism.
