FDA and MHLW ban triclosan from OTC antibacterial hand and body washes

Mon, 14/11/2016

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued the final rule in September, establishing that over-the-counter (OTC) consumer antiseptic wash products can no longer contain certain ingredients, including triclosan. Following the FDA, the Japanese Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare (MHLW) has announced it also eliminated these ingredients.

A proposed rule was issued in 2013 by the FDA, after scientific data suggested that long term exposure to some ingredients, including triclosan and trilocarban, could pose health risks such as bacterial resistance or hormonal effects. The importance of ingredient safety is underlined by the ban of triclosan from OTC antibacterial hand and body washes by the FDA.

During the development of Fagron Advanced Derma vehicles, triclosan has always been one of the avoided ingredients.
