Abstract: This fifth video in our series with David C. Steinberg, recorded at in-cosmetics North America, continues the triclosan discussion with a brief look at how Europe regulates antibacterial soaps.

The FDA's ruling on triclosan is but one example of the growing need (and challenge) to harmonize international cosmetic regulations.
