Triclosan is a widely accepted antimicrobial ingredient because of its
safety and antimicrobial efficacy. Triclosan is a unique
antimicrobial well suited for use in the health care industry in which
mildness is a necessity to protect the health care worker during repeated

Triclosan has demonstrated immediate, persistent, broad-spectrum
antimicrobial effectiveness and utility in clinical health care settings.
