Antibacterial Soaps - It's a wash out!

Antibacterial Soaps

The implication is that it can affect thyroid function, the immune system and make us more susceptible to antibiotic-resistant bugs. It is apparently contra-indicated for pregnant women as it can affect the fetus.

So, I guess, I'm going back to regular soap and water! I just bought a big jug of antibacterial liquid soap too. Oh dear!

Do you know, does this include those bottles of hand sanitizer? I would hate to have to throw mine out. That stuff rocks!

Hi Vikki,

I hope not. Look on the ingredients. If it contains triclosan, then it's a problem. I've used it many years, but I figure it's time to ditch it.

I just read my comment and in the context of what you were saying, it doesn't make a whole lot of sense. What I mean is I've used the liquid soap for many years.
