FDA Bans Triclosan And 19 Chemicals Used In Antibacterial Soaps


We all expected this to happen, and now the time has arrived. As a consumer, I can't say I'll miss them. Soap and water works just fine, thanks.

    This is big news in the cosmetic industry. Good to see.  Although if the FDA started banning ingredients that weren't proven to be functional, there would be a lot of anti-aging ingredients that couldn't be used.
