In the past, cosmetic products often contained triclosan and triclocarban as traditional hygiene actives. Due to consumer over exposure, environmental concerns and regulatory changes, such conventional organohalogen systems are recently being removed from many cosmetic applications. In their reformulation process cosmetic manufacturers are under high pressure to incorporate efficient, safe and eco-friendly ingredients into personal care products. The tendency clearly goes towards the use of multifunctional ingredients that can be used in versatile applications: personal wash, including hand gels of course, deodorants, but also oral care.
