Although some companies have phased triclosan out of certain products, many still use them. The list is always changing, so if you are concerned:
• Look for triclosan (or triclocarban) on the ingredient list of soaps, cosmetics, lotions, acne medicines, toothpastes, deodorants and other personal-care products.
• Be aware that plastic- and fabric-based products marketed with the label Microban or Biofresh may be made with triclosan.
• Keep in mind that most alcohol-based hand sanitzers do not contain triclosan and come highly recommended by health care professionals.
