Say no to antibacterial soaps

By stealth

Global Handwashing Day, held earlier this week, was established to promote a simple message: Wash your hands with soap and water to prevent disease. It's also the perfect time to visit the topic of what kind of soap you're lathering up with. This is an important decision that many of us don't think twice about.

basically all this is confusing the common man.

well one or the study is always sponsored by a lobby in favour of that product. This is the damage that has been done by these multinational giants to promote their products.

EWG is funded by the green lobby in the US. I'd prefer to get some impartial advice before deciding certain soaps were harmful. Remember, these guys want to sell you their products... saying the competition is harmful to the environment or health is just another way of marketing their own cleaning products.

Just regular soap and water work best. Antibacterial soaps aren't necessary and possibly do more harm than good. I wish the selection of natural products were better here. It would be nice to have more choices.
