Triclosan-Free Soaps for Healthcare
On December 19, 2017, the U.S. FDA issued the long expected final rule for “Safety and Effectiveness of Healthcare Antiseptics; Topical Antimicrobial Drug Products for Over-the-Counter Human Use” in the Federal Register.
In this rule, FDA determined that in addition to several other antiseptic active ingredients, Triclosan, a widely used antiseptic agent, must be phased out of Over-the-Counter antiseptic wash products for healthcare applications due to a lack of sufficient safety and efficacy data.
In anticipation of the FDA making such a ruling on Triclosan, DebMed developed several new antimicrobial and routine soaps to replace Triclosan soaps. These formulas have been very well accepted by users, are mild to the skin and more effective than our well-known Triclosan soaps. To learn more about the FDA Ruling please visit:
