Herbalix Restoratives Organic Shampoo is Triclosan-free

November 13th, 2013

You may have been hearing bad things lately about triclosan, an antifungal, antibacterial agent that is often used in consumer products such as shampoo. Triclosan, which is under FDA review, is a polychloro phenoxy phenol and has shown no real benefit to our health beyond its anti-gingivitis effect in tooth care products, and there is no known benefit for its use in hair care products.

Triclosan is basically a chlorinated aromatic compound that is sold under several trade names — Amicor, BioFresh and UltraFresh. A component in many pesticides, triclosan also shows up in housing insulation, in flooring under layments (laminate and engineered wood), and carpeting used for the purpose of stopping the growth of bacteria, fungi, and mildew and in mattresses, and which has not been successfully documented or demonstrated.

If you use a product containing triclosan, you could absorb a small amount through your mouth or skin. Triclosan can be bad for the immune system, according to research, and it has been proven to alter hormone regulation in animals, as well as contribute to developing antibiotic-resistant germs. In one study conducted in 2008, designed to assess exposure to triclosan in a representative sample of U.S. children and adults, researchers found triclosan in the urine of 75 percent of those tested.
