Over the past few years I have been learning a lot about the hormones and chemicals that our bodies are exposed to on a daily basis and have been working on eliminating as many as possible from our household.
In April this year the FDA decided to review the effects of Triclosan based on recent animal studies that have shown triclosan alters hormone regulation.
Triclosan is commonly used in antibacterial liquid soaps and is also found in some toothpastes, body washes and some cosmetics. It may also be found in products such as clothing, kitchenware, furniture, and toys.
Skin is our bodies largest organ and with young children there is a lot of hand washing that happens in our house. So as soon as I learned about the FDA concerns, I went on a mission to find new liquid soap for our family and to check our toothpaste and other household items.
I discovered that finding products without triclosan was not an easy task. To make things easier for everyone interested in making the change, I would like to ask my friends in Network Marketing or Direct Sales to share information and links to their triclosan free products.
