Triclosan: Not Safe, Not Effective


This was in an article I read put out by The Environmental Working Group (EWG) on June 20, 2017.  You can see the article here and read more articles by this group who watches out for us, the consumers.  Their mission is to watch out for us through reports like this, empowering us to live in healthier environments and live healthier lives through awareness from the research they do.

Triclosan is just one of many very dangerous ingredients you will find in many of our hand soaps, dish soaps, shampoos, conditioners, toothpaste, deodorant, lotions, cosmetics, just about all of our everyday personal products.  Because these are used everyday by us the consumers, it has been found in the bodies of more than three-fourths of Americans.  It is even found in undergarments, cleaning supplies, and building supplies!  Children’s bibs, toys, playground equipment, etc.  The list goes on and on.

Triclosan, is a powerful pesticide registered with the Environmental Protection Agency, which may cause changes in the human reproduction system and development, likely harming people’s health and the environment, while providing no benefit to consumers, said more than 200 scientists and medical professionals in a consensus statement published in this article.

For all of the information and studies and FDA, EPA, etc claims, please go read this article in full and also click on the link at the bottom of the article for a tipsheet of where you might find triclosan in your home.
