FDA Investigating Use Of Triclosan In Antibacterial Soap
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is investigating antibacterial soap containing the ingredient triclosan. Studies show that exposure to triclosan could have health side effects, says the FDA.
The Soap and Detergent Association (SDA), however, recently stated that this ingredient has been used safely for decades and that research demonstrates that washing hands with antibacterial soap is more effective at reducing the risk of bacterial infection than washing with non-antibacterial soap.
