Triclosan-free Liquid Soap


This patent has a broad variety of product applications and will be the foundation of Hydromer's introduction into personal care products. Hydromer's antimicrobial liquid soap and alcohol-free hand sanitizer, created using this patented technology, are Triclosan free.

Ban on Triclosan-based Products


Triclosan has historically been an ingredient of most antimicrobial soaps. The European Union and some states in the United States have already started the process of banning Triclosan based products. The United States Federal Drug Administration has identified Triclosan as having adverse health effects and, in 2016, required manufacturers to provide more safety data on the use of Triclosan. The FDA is continuing its examination of the effects of Triclosan in the cosmetics field and may further prohibit or limit its use.

Product Manager Personal Care, Hydromer, Inc., Eric Becktel said:

"We believe that Hydromer products offer consumers, both individuals and organizations such as hotels, hospitals, schools and offices, a viable alternative to the current product offerings of soaps with Triclosan and alcohol based hand sanitizers. We are excited to have our innovation in this area recognized by the issuance of this patent. We will use this patented technology and other formulations to launch an array of natural Triclosan free products that fill a void in the current marketplace for soaps and sanitizers. We expect to share more about our products and sales offerings with the organic and natural marketplace in the upcoming weeks."
