TRICLOSAN NEVER SHOWN TO PROMOTE ANTIBIOTIC RESISTANCE, SOAP ASSN. says Aug. 10 in response to an in vivo antimicrobial resistance study of the ingredient published in Nature Aug. 6 by Tufts University Center for Adaptation Genetics and Drug Resistance researchers Laura McMurry, PhD, et al. "Antibacterial wash products containing triclosan have been used by consumers and medical professionals in homes and hospitals for more than 30 years," the Soap & Detergent Association said in a joint statement with the Cosmetic, Toiletry & Fragrance Association. "Based on these three decades of research and actual user experience, triclosan has never been shown to promote antibiotic resistance."
