Antibacterials being removed from soap

antibacterial soapAccording to a report on NBC.com, by Maggie Fox  news “The Food and Drug Administration says they do little or nothing to make antibacterial soap work any better and said the industry has failed to prove they’re safe.”

“CONSUMERS MAY THINK ANTIBACTERIAL WASHES ARE MORE EFFECTIVE AT PREVENTING THE SPREAD OF GERMS, BUT WE HAVE NO SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE THAT THEY ARE ANY BETTER THAN PLAIN SOAP AND WATER.”

The problem with Triclosan is a growing body of research also shows that this ingredient can alter how our thyroids work, increase our resistance to antibiotics, and even make our allergies more severe. From an article dated 2012 in Prevention Magazine.  Antibacterial Soap will kill off both the good and the bad bacteria, causing you to be sick more often not less.

A much healthier alternative is HerbaSafe anticeptic liquid hand soap.  It’s a TRICLOSAN-FREE, highly effective herbal product that is dermatologically safe – yet mild enough to be used repeatedly throughout the day. It contains a blend of natural oils which leaves the hands clean and silky smooth every time you use it.
