CleanWell Offers Canadians Triclosan-Free Alternative
SAN FRANCISCO, April 4, 2012 /CNW/ - Citing concerns over results of recent draft-risk assessment, federal government agency Environment Canada has called for a voluntary ban of triclosan, an antibacterial agent found in personal care items and consumer products like soap, toothpaste, deodorant, and socks. Manufacturers are being asked to remove triclosan, a known environmental hazard and human endocrine disrupter, after the Canadian government concluded that it is toxic to the environment, according to a statement issued on March 30, 2012.
Canadian consumers looking for an alternative to soaps containing triclosan can turn to CleanWell. The company, known for its all-natural hand sanitizers powered by a patented formulation of natural thyme oil, offers triclosan-free antibacterial hand soap for use in the kitchen, bathroom, classroom, etc. for the millions of Canadians affected by the recent triclosan news.
Developed by a physician to replace triclosan-based products, CleanWell soap kills germs yet is very gentle on skin. Additionally, all CleanWell products are free of problematic preservatives found in other soaps. The formulation is biodegradable, safe for the environment, and is never tested on animals.
"Customers should have access to safe and effective personal hygiene products, which is why we worked for years to develop the natural thyme formulation found in our hand soaps and sanitizers," said Dr. Larry Weiss, Chief Scientist and Co-Founder of CleanWell. "Offering easy, safe solutions to everyday issues gives consumers the confidence that they're doing the best for their families and themselves."
CleanWell replaces problematic, outdated ingredients found in disinfectants and antibacterial products with plant based green chemistry developed by a physician for families. The active ingredient in all CleanWell products is a patented formulation of thyme oil which is steam distilled from the thyme plant in an ancient and sustainable process. Our hope is to make people stop and think about the everyday things they currently use in their homes and around their families, becoming aware of the small print and warning labels that they've probably never noticed before.
