FDA bans antibacterial soaps [fda.gov]

Depending on your stance on triclosan, it either
"here come the bargains"; or "finally they got rid of it"

Watch out for Bath and Body works "kitchen soaps", etc. for example.
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

Good. I hate how every crap soap is "antibacterial" and it is a pain to find one that is not.

They should just destroy the products. It's been banned for years in Europe because it's an endocrine disrupter and most water treatment plants don't remove this product.

BBW reformulated their handsoaps a couple of years ago.


My question is Dial soap. They literally built their soap on being antibacterial. I wonder if we will see more soap that's "antimicrobial" now. A different formulation with anti-bacterial properties? Salt? Chloride?
