You don't need soap with antibacterials in it to get clean. In fact, you may be better off without one. A recent study by the University of California-Davis suggests antibacterial soaps with triclocarban have the potential to alter hormone levels. Instead, try a La Roche-Posay Toleriane Gentle Cleansing Bar or a budget-friendly Clearly Natural Glycerine Bar Soap, made from moisturizing glycerin to wash off dirt and get you smelling fresh.
