There are a number of possible issues with such Derma Correct widespread use of Triclosan, relating to both human health and the natural world. In 2009, the American Public Health Association (APHA) proposed that it would endorse the banning of Triclosan for household and non-medical uses. At the time of writing (also 2009), this proposal has not yet been taken any further.One reason cited in the APHA proposal was the reports of both contact dermatitis and photo contact dermatitis linked with Triclosan exposure. Photoallergic contact dermatitis occurs when a chemical, in this case Triclosan, apparently causes a skin reaction when exposed to sunshine. It normally takes the form of a rash on sun-exposed areas of the body.However, it is important to see the wider impact of Triclosan, as it does not seem confined to skin reactions. Large amounts of Triclosan leave our houses in our waste water every day and end up in rivers and other water courses as it is not removed by water treatment plants. It is highly toxic to some types of algae and, if chlorine is present in the water, has been found to form potentially harmful chemicals called dioxins when exposed to sunlight.
