HALLELUJAH!!!! Another win for people and the planet. The FDA has banned the chemical antibacterial TRICLOSAN which has always been on the list of ingredients to avoid in bath and body products in my book. This ruling will not go into effect until September 2017, so VOTE WITH YOUR DOLLARS now and stop buying these products.

Here is an NPR article/segment about the recent ruling: http://www.npr.org/sections/health-shots/2016/09/02/492394717/fda-bans-19-chemicals-used-in-antibacterial-soaps

And if you are nerdy like me, here is the actual ruling that bans Triclosan, Yay! (cue audience applause): https://s3.amazonaws.com/public-inspection.federalregister.gov/2016-21337.pdf
