Antibacterial soap isn't all it’s cracked up to be. It’s flu season and we all know that the best defence against contracting this bothersome illness is frequent and thorough hand washing, right? So, what’s a person to do? I made sure I kept a bottle of antibacterial soap next to every sink so that my family would have no excuse for not washing their hands. I want what’s best for my family and I was on the right track or so I thought, until I learned more about the main ingredient in most antibacterial liquid soaps.
The ingredient in a lot of liquid soaps that make them antibacterial is Triclosan. It has been used in a lot of other products as well including toothpaste, socks, etc., until recently. It is now being reviewed by the FDA and Johnson and Johnson has started phasing out the use of Triclosan and other such chemicals in their products, all the more reason to read labels and avoid this chemical.
