What Happened to Triclosan? A Lingering Legacy of the Hyper-Hygiene Eratoxicity

Kelly Crowe

… Hundreds of cosmetic and cleaning products contained triclosan, including, at one point, almost all of the antibacterial liquid soap that was sold to consumers.

… Government health agencies began questioning the safety of triclosan almost a decade ago, at the height of a hygiene craze after antibacterial soaps and cleansers had already swept the consumer marketplace.

… The FDA decided to put that question to the companies relying on the agent, asking them to provide evidence to support the use of triclosan.

Instead, major manufacturers have gradually stopped using it.

… Even though triclosan is vanishing from the marketplace, the chemical is still deemed safe for human use by Health Canada.

… Meanwhile, scientists are still investigating the human health effects of triclosan — and new evidence is starting to emerge.
