Abstract: The resinous exudate of Baccharis grisebachii which is used to treat ulcers, burns, and skin sores in Argentina showed activity towards dermatophytes and bacteria. Two diterpenes, eight p-coumaric acid derivatives, and two flavones were isolated from the exudate and the structures elucidated by spectroscopic methods. 3-Prenyl-p-coumaric acid and 3,5-diprenyl-p-coumaric acid were active towards Epidermophyton floccosum and Trichophyton rubrum with MICs of 50 and 100–125 μg/ml, respectively. The diterpene labda-7,13E-dien-2β,15-diol was active towards Epidermophyton floccosum and Trichophyton rubrum with MICs of 12.5 μg/ml while the MIC against Microsporum canis and Trichophyton mentagrophytes was 25 μg/ml. The diterpene was also active towards Microsporum gypseum with a MIC of 50 μg/ml, and showed inhibition in both Staphylococcus aureus (methicilline resistant and sensible strains) with MICs of 125 μg/ml. The results support the use of Baccharis grisebachii in Argentinian traditional medicine.
