FDA's Ban On Antibacterial Soaps Affects Procter & Gamble

September 6, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
Procter & Gamble Co., along with other manufacturers, have to reformulate their antibacterial soaps or stop selling them and running related advertising, after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced a ban on harmful ingredients. According to the FDA, the rule is expected to affect about 2,100 products, or 40 percent of soaps and body washes in the market. FDA said the ban covers consumer products with one or more of 19 active ingredients. Among the most commonly used chemicals are triclosan, in liquid soap, and triclocarban, which is used in bar soap.
