Dettol Original Anti-Bacterial Bar Soap 3.88 OZ
What is the Dettol Original Anti-Bacterial Bar Soap?
The Dettol Original Anti-Bacterial Soap essentially transforms Dettol's antiseptic liquid into soap bar form that is safe-for-daily-use. It has a rather ungainly shade of orange and has a very basic and forgettable scent that, again, is very much like the antiseptic liquid.
Although it suds up and cleanses as well as any soap, it is mainly remarkable for its antibacterial property that enables it to provide up to ten times more protection than ordinary soap according to the manufacturer. This has important implications for your health as switching to using this soap may significantly reduce the likelihood of getting ill.
As the Dettol Original Anti-Bacterial Soap is essentially a mimic of the Dettol antiseptic and disinfectant liquid in all but form, it utilizes chloroxylenol as its active ingredient as opposed to the Triclocarbon used in the other variants. Both Titanium Dioxide and tetrasodium EDTA aid in strengthening the antibacterial and disinfectant effect of this soap.
However, the concerns associated with other Dettol soaps are applicable to this one as well. It includes talc, Sodium 14-16 Olefin Sulfonate and PEG-7 Amodimethicone. All three of these are either considered potential health hazards or irritants although all have been recognized as safe for use in cosmetics and toiletries by the US FDA and are in accordance with the EU Cosmetics Directive.
Why use the Dettol Original Anti-Bacterial Bar Soap?
The Dettol Original Anti-Bacterial Soap is an excellent choice for people that prefer antibacterial soaps over ordinary soaps. It contains the same active ingredient as Dettol's antiseptic liquid, thus ensuring its efficacy in providing protection against germs.
If you dislike strongly scented soaps or flowery scents, the Dettol Antibacterial Original Soap is a great option as it has a very basic and fairly mild scent. It forms suds readily and cleanses very well, removing dirt and other impurities with relative ease.
It is also surprisingly mild, considering it is an antibacterial soap and not a skincare product. The Dettol Antibacterial Original Soap even has a moisturizing effect, keeping your skin hydrated for a period of time after use.
Benefits of Dettol Soap:
The primary benefit of the Dettol Original Antibacterial Bar Soap is its antibacterial property that may help you avoid illnesses transmitted through contact. While not a benefit per se, some customers may prefer the mild and basic fragrance of this soap.
It can be used in the kitchen, washroom or bathroom as it has the ability to cleanse, disinfect and moisturize.
Some of the ingredients in the Dettol Anti-Bacterial Original Soap, such as Sodium C14-16 Olefin Sulfonate, are known to act as irritants for certain people while others such as Talc and PEG-7 Amodimethicone have potentially adverse health effects. This is the common thought although scientific evidence is not conclusive and all the ingredients are approved for use in cosmetics and toiletries by the US FDA (Food & Drugs Administrations) and are in accordance with the EU Cosmetics Directive.
The Dettol Original Anti-Bacterial Soap is an excellent option for everyday use as it not only cleanses as well as any other soap, but also has an antibacterial property. It helps keep your skin moisturized to an extent and has a pleasant but very light fragrance that dissipates rapidly. As it is not priced significantly higher than ordinary soap and nowhere near as high as luxury beauty soaps, we highly recommend trying out the Dettol Antibacterial Original Soap as not only is it a great change of pace, but it may also help prevent you from getting sick.
