Colgate-Palmolive Removed This Potentially Harmful Chemical From Its Soap Products —
But It’s Still In Your Toothpaste
Shame on you toothpaste brands for hiding Triclosan in the “Preservative” Ingredient category
Colgate removes Triclosan from a lot of their products, but yet it remains in their toothpaste! A big reason is because “the FDA “relies on company-backed science to show products are safe and effective,” according to the Bloomberg story. This means that instead of having independent, third-party researchers determine the effectiveness and safety of a given product, the FDA often accepts research studies funded by the company that is trying to seek approval.”
Shame on the FDA also for not having investigated this in a timely fashion. “The FDA has never issued a comprehensive ruling on triclosan’s effectiveness and safety — even though it originally said it would look into triclosan in 1974. That was two years before “the U.S. Toxic Substances Control Act of 1976, which aimed to comprehensively regulate chemicals, grandfathered in existing substances with no safety testing,” Bloomberg notes. Now the FDA says it will issue a ruling on triclosan in 2016. REALLY 40 years? 40 years? This infuriates me! It is known that triclosan has been linked to cancer-cell growth, it could disrupt the endocrine system, and has disrupted development in animals. According to the NRDC – Triclosan has been associated with lower levels of thyroid hormone and testosterone, which could result in altered behavior, learning disabilities, or infertility. Triclocarban has been shown to artificially amplify the effects of sex hormones such as estrogen and testosterone, which could promote the growth of breast and prostate cancer.
