Cosmetic Ingredient Tainting Minnesota Lakes, Streams and the Great Lakes
An antibiotic widely used in cosmetic products is converting to toxins in Minnesota’s lakes and streams according to research by the University of Minnesota and the Science Museum of Minnesota. http://www.startribune.com/local/187826601.html
Triclosin was listed as an active ingredient in a handwash product I had not opened, and I never purchase antibiotic products. Do NOT put these down the drain, or use them. I would suggest bringing any of these products to the hazardous waste disposal site.
