However, there’s no evidence that specially marked “antibacterial” soap is any more effective at preventing disease than regular soap. Any soap, when scrubbed under warm water for twenty seconds, is antibacterial! Branding a soap as such is nothing more than a marketing ploy to convince customers to buy that company's soap.
Take it from a soap maker: SOAP IS SOAP...no fancy chemicals are necessary! This is why the FDA has decided to ban 19 chemicals that soap producers were using to make this alleged “antibacterial” soap. To make matters worse, the chemicals they were using are potentially harmful.
What are these chemicals?
Soap is soap...not a "beauty" bar.
Check out one of our past blogs, “How Does Soap Work?” for a mini chemistry lesson on the subject. Basically, soap molecules attach to oil, dirt and other particles, and then are washed away with water - no scary chemicals necessary! This is why we focus on natural soaps here at Tailored Touches. Moreover, you can always look into the ingredients we use or contact us with questions. In case you haven’t noticed, we love to talk soap...and make it!
