Global ban on Triclosan


Following 2015 ruling by the EU to ban Triclosan the U.S. Food and Drug Administration ‘issued a final rule establishing that over-the-counter (OTC) consumer antiseptic wash products containing specific active ingredients, including the most commonly used ingredients – triclosan and triclocarban can no longer be marketed. Companies will no longer be able to market antibacterial washes with these ingredients’.


From 2017 we will not be able to manufacture Senses Bactericidal Liquid Soap because it contains Triclosan.  We recommend that all current customers move to our Green Bactericidal Liquid Soap which is both Triclosan Free and Envirological.

The benefits:

  • The new formulation has been tested and passed to BSEN1276 at 30 seconds and also the BSEN13727 test for general medical use
  • The product has our ENIVROLOGICAL accreditation as an environmentally sound product


We also recommend Antibacterial Foam Hand Cleaner

An unperfumed foam hand cleaner, ideal for use where high standards of hygiene are required. Especially suitable for use in catering areas, bars and hospital wards. This product is formulated using predominantly vegetable derived bactericides and foaming agents.
