CTFA on antibacterials

This article was originally published in The Rose Sheet

Executive Summary

Industry-sponsored research underway to "explore all issues" regarding the use of antibacterial products, the Cosmetic, Toiletry and Fragrance Association says in a June 1 statement. "In recent years, there has been an increased level of [public] interest in antibiotic resistance," the group notes; FDA convened a panel on the subject in 1997 and found no need for concern. Since that time, "several laboratory studies have raised questions and possible links between antibacterial personal care products and bacterial resistance," the trade group says. CTFA contends, however, the studies "have limited relevance to what happens in the everyday world"
