I worry about everything so of course that has been my latest thing. I try to avoid products with triclosan but now i don't really see the need. If it is so toxic , why is it not being phased out.

Is it bad or should it just be one of them things that need to be acknowledged and worth no worrying? Answered by Erick Digilio 1 year ago.

Triclosan has been thoroughly reviewed by global regulatory agencies such as the US Food and Drug Administration, the US Environmental Protection Agency, the European Commission, the European Scientific Committee for Cosmetic Products, Australian and Japanese authorities among many others. On the basis of the wealth of scientific data provided to these authorities, triclosan is registered for use in personal care, household and industrial products throughout the global market and has not been removed from the marketplace by regulatory restrictions in any country. What’s more, because triclosan is used in toothpaste as an effective way to fight gingivitis, the antimicrobial agent had to be approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as an oral care drug product and had to undergo the same extensive review as over-the-counter or prescription drugs. Items containing triclosan are “popular” because they work, keeping consumers happy and buying them based on the benefits they experience from using them. Claims that using products containing triclosan may be harmful to human health and the environment are fundamentally wrong and seriously misguide consumers, serving to deny them the choice of protecting themselves and their families from the spread of germs, the risk of infections, dental diseases and odors caused by microbes. The use of this beneficial product should not be discouraged based on stories that do little more than stir up disproved fears rather than describe real-life, present day scenarios. Answered by Kerri Brockway 1 year ago.

Triclosan, a chemical used for its antibacterial properties, is an ingredient in many detergents, dish-washing liquids, soaps, deodorants, cosmetics, lotions, anti-microbial creams, various toothpastes, and an additive in various plastics and textiles. However, the safety of triclosan has been questioned in regard to environmental and human health. While the companies that manufacture products containing this chemical claim that it is safe, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has registered it as a pesticide. Also when you use an antibacterial soap for hands or dishes you are also killing the bacteria in your ceptic system that is needed to break things down like paper. You are killing the bacteria that is needed to make your septic system work properly. Adding something like rid-ex will work until the next time you use an anti bacterial. You will find that your toliet plugs up more than if you just used a bar of ivory soap. Answered by Lucina Schapp 1 year ago.


Triclosan, is it harmful to our bodies? Inside, outside?
I have just stoped buying toothpaste with Triclosan because I heard on news reports that it is destroying our marine enviroment. Some days ago I bought a deoderant and discovered to my dissapointment that it contained Triclosan. Asked by Keneth Larmett 1 year ago.

Triclosan is a chlorophenol, a chemical that is suspected of causing cancer in humans. The EPA even regards it as a toxic chemical. Triclosan also combines with chlorine in tap water to form chloroform gas. Triclosan use in products of course ends up in the oceans and microorganisms that feed off sunlight degrade it into other toxic compounds. Triclosan also bioaccumulates in fish and human tissue. Finally triclosan produces antibiotic resistance in pathogenic bacteria. Answered by Takako Simerly 1 year ago.

Effect of triclosan on algae?
Does triclosan have any effect on algae? By that I mean, does it encourage or inhibit algal growth to any degree? Thanks! Asked by Floria Whitehorn 1 year ago.

Triclosan is highly toxic to algae. Because algae are the first-step producers in aquatic ecosystems, researchers believe that high levels of triclosan discharged into the environment may destroy the balance of aquatic ecosystems. The risks are especially high immediately downstream from wastewater treatment plants. Answered by Oda Bendzans 1 year ago.


Should triclosan be used in products?
Asked by Sunny Hadson 1 year ago.

1. An article coauthored by Dr. Stuart Levy in the August 6, 1998 issue of Nature warned that triclosan's overuse could cause resistant strains of bacteria to develop, in much the same way that antibiotic-resistant bacterial strains are emerging, based on speculation that triclosan behaved like an antibiotic. Based on this speculation, in 2003, the Sunday Herald newspaper reported that some UK supermarkets and other retailers were considering phasing out products containing triclosan. 2. Reports have suggested that triclosan can combine with chlorine in tap water to form chloroform gas, which the United States Environmental Protection Agency classifies as a probable human carcinogen. As a result, triclosan was the target of a UK cancer alert, even though the study showed that the amount of chloroform generated was less than amounts often present in chlorinated drinking waters. 3. A 2006 study concluded that low doses of triclosan act as an endocrine disruptor in the North American bullfrog. The hypothesis proposed is that triclosan blocks the metabolism of thyroid hormone, because it chemically mimics thyroid hormone, and binds to the hormone receptor sites, blocking them, so that normal hormones cannot be utilized. Triclosan has also been found in both the bile of fish living down stream from waste water processing plants and in human breast milk. The negative effects of Triclosan on the environment and its questionable benefits in toothpastes has led to the Swedish Naturskyddsföreningen to recommend not using triclosan in toothpaste.

I currently wash my face twice a day with Clearasil face wash, and I apply hand soap with Triclosan in it once a day. My acne hasn't gotten better at all, when using just one or the other. I'm almost positive this all doesn't work because when I sleep at night, I sweat in my sleep causing acne on my face (I sleep on my side). When I was on vacation, the room was much cooler than my bedroom and my face cleared in 1 day. But will triclosan help or not help my acne? Thanks Answered by Jennefer Rominger 1 year ago.

Triclosan can irritate sensitive skin. Sensible diet, good hygiene and low stress should keep acne away. Use great OTC acne products like “Niapads”, “Cetaphil” etc that are simple and easy to use. The most effective product is one that is "simple” to use™. Multi-step treatments are difficult to follow and prolong acne. For eg - with Niapads (Nicotinamide acne pads) you can cut a piece, wet it with water and place it on the pimple. Active ingredients in Niapads penetrate the skin and provide acne relief. They also are effective in reducing skin hyperpigmentation (acne scars). Use the gentle scrubbing action for pore cleansing, exfoliation and overall acne relief. Contains Lavender oil – well known moisturizer. Niapads worked for me, try it. Answered by Carmen Eastin 1 year ago.

triclosan is just an anit-bacterial. In general cases it will not help rid acne. try a face wash with salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide instead. Answered by Faith Wienecke 1 year ago.


Why is triclosan still used in toothpaste if it is toxic?
The thing is, Indigo, they haven't been testing for it to see what effect it's having... so nobody knows how many people are harmed by it. Asked by Tayna Santell 1 year ago.

I will share with you a report from Aviva Glaser "There is a disinfectant showing up in hundreds of common consumer products that is raising serious cause for concern. The chemical, triclosan, is a synthetic, broad-spectrum antimicrobial agent that in recent years has exploded onto the consumer market in a wide variety of antibacterial soaps, deodorants, toothpastes, cosmetics, fabrics, plastics, and other products. Studies have increasingly linked triclosan to a range of health and environmental effects,from skin irritation, allergy susceptibility, bacterial and compounded antibiotic resistant, and dioxin contamination to destruction of fragile aquatic ecosystems. Concerns about triclosan have even led some manufacturers, such as Tom’s of Maine, to specifi cally state that their toothpaste products do not contain triclosan. According to the American Medical Association, “Despite their recent proliferation in consumer products, the use of antimicrobial agents such as triclosan in consumer products has not been studied extensively. No data exist to support their effi cacy when used in such products or any need for them…it may be prudent to avoid the use of antimicrobial agents in consumer products…”2 Triclosan possesses mostly antibacterial properties, but also some antifungal and antiviral properties. It is marketed under the trade name Microban® when used in plastics and clothing, and Biofresh® when used in acrylic fi bers. Triclosan is most o� en used to kill bacteria on the skin and other surfaces, although it sometimes is used to preserve the product against deterioration due to microbes.3 Antibacterials are similar to antibiotics in that they both inhibit bacterial growth. But while the purpose of antibiotics is to cure disease, the purpose of antibacterials are to prevent transmission of disease-causing micro-organisms.4 Triclosan has been used for over 30 years. Its uses were originally confi ned mostly to health care se� ings, fi rst introduced in the health care industry in a surgical scrub in 1972. ""......
