Is your soap antibacterial?
What a great question! Normal soap is just as effective as antibacterial soap in preventing infection and maintaining good hygiene, even though our soaps are not specifically formulated to be antibacterial. Triclosan, an ingredient found in a variety of body soaps, cleaning products, and toothpastes, is contained in most soaps that are branded as antibacterial. Triclosan is a likely contributor to the development of antibacterial and antibiotic resistance, as well as damaging to the planet!
