Previous studies have shown that regular soap is just as effective as anti-bacterial soap and with a new study published in the Journal of Antimicrobial Chemotherapy researchers in Korea are contributing more data to support that claim. They tested regular and anti-bacterial soaps against 20 strains of bacteria in a lab, as well as on people’s dirty hands. The conclusions state: Antibacterial soap containing triclosan (0.3%) was no more effective than plain soap at reducing bacterial contamination when used under ‘real-life’ conditions.
