Can Antibacterial Products Hurt my Baby?

We’ve all heard the myth that antibacterial hand soap is good. 

But studies show that when you wash your hands, using antibacterial hand soap is no better at reducing germs than plain soap. A common chemical in antibacterial products—triclosan—was found to impair muscle function in lab tests.

 The FDA banned triclosan in antibacterial soaps in 2017.

 But it is still found in everyday products like dish soaps, personal care products, toothpastes, and mouthwashes. Consequently, using products with triclosan may also contribute to the evolution of stronger, more drug-resistant bacteria.

 Your baby needs as much support for growth, development, and overall health as she can get.

Chemicals that can disrupt her body’s natural development can also create health challenges she doesn’t need while she’s still trying to mature. This is especially true for preemies who are working to catch up to their full-term peers. Babies are sensitive and vulnerable to toxins and chemicals.

 All this can be avoided by avoiding products labeled “antibacterial” and instead using a cleanser with gentle and natural ingredients—like our gentle Bubbly Wash—or skincare items that are truly fragrance-free. 

BEB Organic Bubbly Wash made with natural or organic ingredients is all you need to tackle germs and keep your baby’s skin clean.

And after she’s dry, nourish her from the skin in with our Silky Cream and Diaper Balm, full of nutrients with every application.
