Is your soap antibacterial?

Great question! While our soaps are not formulated to be antibacterial, research shows that normal soap (like our cold-processed, all-natural soap) is as effective as antibacterial soap in preventing infectious illness and keeping good hygiene.

Most soaps that are branded as antibacterial contain triclosan, an ingredient found in a variety of body soaps, cleaning products, and toothpastes. Triclosan is thought to be a likely contributor to the development of antibacterial and antibiotic resistance, as well as damaging to the environment!

If you’re looking to stay clean, stick with normal soap!
