Antibacterial soap offers the same protection against colds as regular soap. Experts say you should wash up, but it doesn’t matter what kind of soap you use. Soaps with added “antibacterial” chemicals are not better at protecting people against infection and illness. The added chemicals may be harmful. The problem: People wash their hands for a matter of seconds, not hours.
And in real-world tests, the research team found no evidence to suggest that normal hand-washing with antibacterial soap does any more to clean the hands than plain soap. In fact, the AMA argues that you shouldn’t: Antibacterial soaps could do more harm than good—by making bacteria stronger and more resistant to existing germ killers, they say. Even when not just dealing with the coronavirus, antibacterial soap isn’t any more beneficial than regular soap. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has yet to find any evidence that.
Does antibacterial soap kill coronavirus? Some people think antibacterial soap is better, but using it all the time can backfire. McGee warns against relying too heavily on it. The FDA and EPA are examining antibacterial soap’s impacts on human and environmental health.
A 2005 FDA advisory committee found no benefit to antibacterial over regular soap, but potential. Figure 1: The amphipathic nature of soap molecules help lift dirt and bacteria off skin and into water so that they can be washed away. Antibacterial soaps have all the same properties as regular soap, but with an extra ingredient added that is intended to stop the bacteria remaining on your skin from replicating. Colloidal silver supplements are often promoted as cure-alls, but evidence of effectiveness is lacking.
Side effects range from skin discoloration to organ damage. The short answer is that it often does. Antibacterial soaps are even designed to help fight and protect against bacteria.
Regular soaps without antibacterial properties, however, don’t necessarily offer protection against bacteria for long after you’ve washed your hands.
