Antibacterial Soap Effect on Underarm Biome

More information: 
What are the effects of antibacterial soaps on our underarm biome? What about Triclosan? Just interested. Thanks!


Hey there, thanks for your question. We are looking into this now. We're about the publish a very nice paper concerning the effect of some detrimental personal care products. What I can say is that it takes away a whole lot of bacteria, leaving behind an 'empty plate' for a wide diversity of bacteria to regrow. These compounds have a vast effect on all the present skin bacteria. It causes a huge increase in diversity, which is not always preferential for the underarm in terms of body odor. Best, Chris
