Anti-bacterial Soap vs. Antiseptic cleanser vs. Plain Old Soap (1)

I missed this. 

The FDA banned antibacterial handwash (U.S.A.) in 2016.

Canada didn't. Health Canada said, "We'll watch and see if we need to take action". 

I did a quick search and yes, you can still get antibacterial soap in Canada. 

In case you're wondering, it won't help protect you from Covid 19. That's a virus, and antibacterial - anything - won't help against viruses. 

"The best defence is a good offense" - heard that one before? A good offense is Soap. Plain Old Soap. Any kind of soap will do! 

But if you want one that "Feels Good, Smells Good And It's Healthy Too!" you've got it! By the Sea Soap Shoppe soaps do all that and they kill nasty viruses too! (Just give the soap time - 20 seconds!)
