Triclosan is an anti bacterial ingredient that is commonly used in products such as soaps and Triclosan Acne face washes as cleansers.

The theory is that  because Triclosan dose not kill 100% of harmful bacteria, the bacteria that remains spreads getting stronger and eventually becomes immune to anti bacterial substances. Resulting in them being very difficult to treat.

The company who develops Triclosan however, denies this argument. They say that the worry of the the ‘super’ bacteria is unnecessary. They emphasise that the chemical is not an anti-biotic but in fact a antimicrobial agent. The company continue to state that many of the hospitals they supply to, use Triclosan in order to fight the spread of infection and they have not witnessed or experienced a higher incidence of bacterial resistance.

Another more environmental issue is about the chemicals effects on our water supplies. Whenever an individual chooses to use Triclosan and then wash their hands afterwards, the water that flows down the drain permanently pollutes the water. 95% of Triclosan products are used and washed down the drain. Apparently the water treatment plants find it extremely difficult to remove from the water. This becomes a massive problem as the chemical is toxic to algae and can negatively effect he echo system.
