Antibacterial Personal Cleansing Products

Personal cleansing products intended to kill or inhibit certain bacteria on the hands or body are generally called antibacterial soaps or washes. Depending on their active ingredient(s) and specific formulation, these products are effective against the bacteria that can cause odor, skin infections, food poisoning, intestinal illnesses and other commonly transmitted diseases. First introduced in the 1920s to control odor-causing bacteria, antibacterial soaps are regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
