One study published in a journal of Chemical Research in Toxicology revealed the presence of Triclosan in Colgate toothpaste.
Several studies after have already clarified the ill effect of Triclosan on our general health.
Interference with hormone functions, endocrine disruption, and quick passage through the skin are some of the drawbacks for Triclosan. In 2008 journal of Environmental Health Perspectives has also published a paper. They indicated that 70% (from a sample of 2.517 people age 6 or older) of urine sample consist of triclosan in it .
Triclosan has unfortunately become a common component in products like deodorants, antiseptics, laundry detergents, hand sanitizer and other cosmetic products.

The substance penetrates the skin and directly enters the blood in our body causing hormonal imbalance. Colgate still claimed that their product is safe although research has already warned about the ill effect of Triclosan. So far only Canada in the entire world banned Triclosan.
