Triclosan is an antimicrobial agent commonly added to soaps and shampoos.  A recent study was done that found that triclosan disrupted liver integrity and compromised liver function in mouse models.  The study authors urge that: “These findings strongly suggest there are adverse health effects in mice with long-term [triclosan] exposure, especially on enhancing liver fibrogenesis and tumorigenesis, and the relevance of [triclosan] liver toxicity to humans should be evaluated.”
