                                        Antibacterial soaps were once used exclusively in hospitals or other settings where cleanliness was a prime consideration. The advertising agencies have done a thorough job of convincing the typical shopper that these products are not only beneficial but will also reduce their chance of illness.
The purpose of soap of any kind is to remove dirt and grime from the surface being cleaned. All soaps are made from a combination of acid and a base. The acid is always a fat of some type and the base is most often sodium hydroxide. Soap has two major functions: binding to oils, dirt and bacteria's and decreasing water's surface tension.


  • Some scientists theorize that bacteria may develop a resistance to bactericidal agents over time.
  • Some bacteria actually benefit us. The normal population of bacteria on our bodies not only eats our sweat, but also helps defend us against truly harmful, invasive bacteria.
  • Many common diseases are viral in nature, anyway, and are therefore not prevented by antibacterial products.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), antibacterial soaps are not necessary, but washing your hands thoroughly with ordinary soap and warm water is one of the most effective ways to ward off infection.
