A: The use of antibacterial soaps does not lead to antibiotic cross-resistance in bacteria. For example, in over 40 years of real world use, there are no known cases or any evidence that triclosan causes resistance in bacteria. Triclosan is an antimicrobial agent that slows or stops the growth of bacteria on surfaces and skin. Triclosan is NOT an antibiotic. It does not treat systemic (inside the body) bacterial infections, which is what antibiotics do. It has been widely recognized throughout the medical community that bacterial resistance is the result of misuse and over-prescription of antibiotic drugs, not the use of triclosan-containing or other antibacterial soaps.
