 Kathy Dolan
  8th-May-2009
Description: Triclosan is regulated by the EPA as a pesticide for use in inanimate objects and is regulated by the FDA as an antimicrobial for use in personal care products and cosmetics. Triclosan is now in hundreds of consumer products ranging from antibacterial soaps, deodorants, toothpastes, cosmetics, fabrics, toys, and other household and personal care products. Most of these products are washed down the drain, can persist through wastewater treatment, and make their way into waterways.
