Natural Handwashes - Could It be a Large Market in Future?

While I was updating our twitter posts with some factoids today, I came across the fact that most antibacterial handwashes contain a hazardous chemical called Triclosan, which might in fact be more dangerous than the germs themseves!

Dug up a bit more on this - see more here , here, here

Now, Triclosan is one harmful chemical that has been identified; perhaps there are more.

As we become more aware of the harmful effects of synthetic ingredients in many of our household items, it is quite possible that products that use natural ingredients instead of these synthetic ones could start creating a large market for themselves. Who knows, there might be a billion $ market for "natural" handwashes!
