FDA’s Triclosan Ban Includes 18 Other Ingredient

In September 2016, the Food and Drug Administration ruled for the removal of triclosan—an ingredient found in antibacterial soap and hand sanitizer—from commercial and consumer hand hygiene products.

The ruling states the ingredient must be removed from all applicable products by September 6, 2017, and manufacturers are already making moves to comply, according to Cleaning and Maintenance Management’s February 2017 cover story, “The Ban on Triclosan.”

However, in addition to triclosan, the FDA has also barred 18 other ingredients from over-the-counter wash products. The full list includes:

Cloflucarban

Iodine complex (ammonium ether sulfate and polyoxyethylene sorbitan monolaurate)
Iodine complex (phosphate ester of alkylaryloxy phoyethylene glycol)
