People can’t imagine their life without soap. The soap has the main role in maintaining hygiene and how actually would people clean their body and hands?
Well, you should not worry, as manufacturers will not stop producing them, but they certainly need to start to utilize less harmful substances in the process.
The situation is quite specific: the soaps which are toxic are the same ones that help people to get rid of germs.
Let’s start from the beginning.
“Triclosan” is powerful antibacterial and antifungal agent that is contained in many soups and hygiene products. The latest studies have proven that this antifungal agent may be the cause of hormonal imbalance in the human body. Other researchers have proved that this substance can be deadly for women, due to the fact that women can get breast cancer using it.
