Is Anti-bacterial Soap Necessary?

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), anti-bacterial soaps are not necessary. So the craze for using anything antibacterial may be useless. Following is a list of the whys, and what you can do instead.

Components of these kinds of soaps such as triclosan or triclocarbon, need to be left on a surface for about two minutes minimum to do their job. Most people wash it off prior to this time frame. Research shows that almost 75 percent of liquid soaps currently on shelves in U.S. grocery stores display the word “antibacterial” on their labels. So are Americans germ free and cleaner now than ever before? Many experts say no.

The CDC does recommend washing your hands thoroughly with ordinary soap and warm water. This is good news for companies like Herbalix Restoratives, producers of organic skin care and soaps products.

What’s more, many common diseases are viral in nature, and not prevented by antibacterial products. There are also rumors that bacteria may develop a resistance to bactericidal agents over time. Some bacteria is good for us. Bacteria on our bodies not only eats sweat, but also helps defend us against truly harmful, invasive bacteria.

Just simply washing your hands thoroughly with ordinary soap and warm water is one of the most effective ways to ward off infection.
