What constitutes an "antibacterial soap"?
I was at a craft show when someone asked if the handcrafted soaps were antibacterial. It dawned on me that I don't know what constitutes antibacterial. The soalcalc lists conditioning, moisturizing and cleansing. Does cleansing actually mean antibacterial or are all soaps antibacterial?
Antibacterial soap is a soap to which an ingredient has been added that either kills bacteria or inhibits bacterial growth.
Do a search of essential oils that contain antibacterial properties and check out my page on Blending Scents
where you will find a list of properties and the oils that have them.
