Antibacterial Soap: Home Detox
“Antibacterial” may seem like a good choice for a hand or dish soap, but triclosan (the primary antibacterial component) can cause big problems. First, it kills all bacteria — the bad and the good… And when triclosans are mixed with chlorinated tap water, the combination can create chloroform, a carcinogenic gas.
Additionally, most consumers who use Antibacterial soap are left feeling that they have made a significant impact on their likelihood of becoming ill. According to experts in the field, this often not the case, because most illnesses are virus based, which are unaffected by antibacterial soap.
It can also create antibiotic resistance, meaning that certain bacteria can grow immune to it over time. Some experts believe that the strains of bacteria that are harder and harder to extinguish in hospital settings may be directly linked to the use of ‘Antibacterial Soap’.

The good news? You can avoid these poison problems by using only natural hand and dish soaps that are formulated WITHOUT triclosan, chlorine, or phosphates.
RECOMMENDATION; Use a hand soap free of harsh chemicals like Thieves Foaming Hand Soap, which uses Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus and Rosemary oils.
