Antibacterial soap is widely used especially in winter, to keep out bacteria and viruses. Recent research has shown, however, that this product is harmful to the liver.
Antibacterial soaps are not as healthy as you think. A recent study has shown that prolonged exposure to triclosan (an ingredient used in these soaps and in toothpaste also) worsens fibrosis and tumors when combined with other carcinogens.
The high level of triclosan detected in the environment, and its use in more and more products exceed its moderate benefits and become a real risk of liver toxicity to humans, especially when combined with other ingredients that have similar effects.
