Safer Hand Soap Options

EWG doesn’t recommend antibacterial soap because it is no more effective than regular soap. Plus, overuse of antibacterial ingredients in consumer products could contribute to growing antibiotic resistance and make antimicrobials ineffective when they are essential – in medical treatment. Antimicrobial soap could also contain potentially harmful ingredients, like benzalkonium chloride, which has been linked to reproductive issues and asthma.
