A new study released by the U of M shows triclosan, a common ingredient in antibacterial hand soaps is readily present and appears to persist in the environment, creating concerns about the use and the need for this antibacterial agent in products.
U of M News Release: http://www1.umn.edu/news/news-releases/2013/UR_CONTENT_428124.html
Multi-Clean brand Hand Soaps that do NOT contain Triclosan:
Multi-Fresh Green Isle Foaming Hand and Body Wash (Green Seal Certified)
Multi-Fresh Pink Hand Cleaner
Multi-Fresh Lotionized Hand Soap
It has been suggested with studies supporting the assertion that washing hands with regular hand soap is just as effective as using an antibacterial soap containing triclosan.
Why pay more for no added benefit? Not to mention the potentially harmful impact on our environment.
Moral: Wash your hands often using regular hand soaps to protect yourself from illness.
