Information from the National Library of Medicine Pertaining to Triclosan, Triclocarban
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration recently announced that "over-the-counter consumer antiseptic hand products" and antibacterial body washes can no longer be marketed, citing potential health risks and bacterial infection. All products containing one or more of 19 specific active ingredients, including triclosan and triclocarban, must be removed or reformulated within one year.
The National Library of Medicine (NLM) Hazardous Substances Data Bank (HSDB) has detailed information about triclosan and triclocarban. The NLM Household Products Database (HPD) records for triclosan and triclocarban list products containing the ingredients plus safety data sheets accompanying those products; links to related searches of other NLM databases are also provided.
