Do you look for soaps that are ‘antibacterial’ thinking that this will reduce the chance of getting sick or spreading germs?
There has been many arguments in the natural health industry over the years that dispute that antibacterial soaps and washes may do more harm than good.
The FDA, (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) released a statement saying that “there isn’t enough science to show that over-the-counter (OTC) antibacterial soap is better at preventing illness than washing with plain soap and water. To date, the benefits of using antibacterial hand soap haven’t been proven. In addition, the wide use of these products over a long time has raised the question of potential negative effects on your health.”
The antibacterial active ingredients, including triclosan and triclocarban, will no longer be able to be marketed, as the FDA is issuing a final ruling which will stop over the counter consumer antiseptic wash products (including liquid, foam, gel hand soaps, bar soaps and body washes).
