the FDA will finalize the control of triclosan and tri

The Natural Resources Conservation Commission has submitted a lawsuit against the failure of the Food and Drug Administration to properly regulate triclosan and trichlorocarban. These two substances can generally be used in antimicrobial soaps. These chemicals are suspected to affect reproductive endocrine disruption and are harmful in laboratory studies.

Jennifer Sass, a senior scientist at NRDC's Ministry of Health and Environment, said that washing hands with so-called antibacterial soaps containing trichlorosand or trichlorocarbane was actually as effective as regular soap and water. The use of soap containing these substances will not benefit consumers at all, but will actually do harm to human health. The FDA should first prohibit these harmful chemicals from being added to products.


Consumers use soaps that claim to be antimicrobial or antimicrobial, mostly containing triclosan or trichlorocarbane. The FDA first proposed removing these chemicals from soap in 1978. Until this rule is finalized, these substances can be widely used. With the increasing use of these substances in products, these substances have been widely residual in the environment and human body. Current biological surveillance results show that 75% of people over the age of six in the United States will have these residues. These chemicals are absorbed through contact with the skin and are detected in human blood, urine and even breast milk.


The lawsuit requires the court to give the FDA a a mandatory deadline to finalize the 32-year-old undecided provisions. Under the current FDA recommendation, this provision would prohibit the use of triclosan and Trichlorocarban in many antimicrobial products.
