Dirty, Dirty Triclosan

Tuesday, January 25, 2011

I've told you about the dangers of triclosan before. Now's the time for us to do something about this terrible ingredient.



If you use anti-bacterial soaps, chances are you're applying this toxin to your skin. The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics has a petition for you to sign that is headed to the EPA.

To sign the petition and hopefully have this ingredient off the market, follow this link.

Why is triclosan bad? Here is a post I did some time ago about antibacterial soaps. It explains why this ingredient is harmful, especially to children.

Head over to the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics website and tell the EPA you don't want this toxin in your cosmetics.
