Antibacterial - What Is It?

They come in the form of alcohol, bleach and chemicals such as Triclosan and diazaborine - to kill bacteria or suppress its growth.

A research said that the overuse of some of the stronger antibacterial chemicals could possibly create super bug mutations and resistance to antibiotics.

The bottom line is; if you're going to use an antibacterial on your hands, choose the kind with alcohol, which won't contribute to antibiotic resistance. Or try cleaners that contain antibacterial essential oils, like lavender, sweet orange and tea tree.
