High Health Hazard. Triclosan is a skin, eye and lung irritant. It is an endocrine disruptor and has the ability to persist in the environment and bio accumulate.
Triclosan is an antibacterial and antifungal agent used in body care products such as soaps, hand washes, toothpastes and cosmetics. The NICNAS in Australia has determined that it is hazardous and should be classified as an irritant to skin, eyes and respiratory system, and toxic by inhalation. Studies show Triclosan affects hormone regulation in animals, is toxic to aquatic bacteria and inhibits photosynthesis in groups of algae that are responsible for a large part of the photosynthesis activity on the planet.
