Triclosan is now not on the list, but you can still find this toxic ingredient in the hand sanitizer, as they have a year to pull it out of their ingredient list. Make sure your hand gel doesn’t contain triclosan.

Triclosan– is an antibacterial ingredient used not only in hand sanitizers but also in a lot of personal care products. According to the EWG, it is linked to liver and inhalation toxicity, and low levels of triclosan may disrupt thyroid function. Triclosan contributes to making bacteria resistant to antibiotics. Using hand sanitizers may actually lower your resistance to diseases by killing good bacteria, which helps protect against bad bacteria.
