Caption: Triclosan is a potent wide-spectrum antibacterial and antifungal agent. It is used in soaps (0.10-1.00%), deodorants, toothpastes, shaving creams, mouth washes, and cleaning supplies. It may also be used in kitchen utensils, toys, bedding, socks, and trash bags. Triclosan reduces bacterial contamination on the hands and on treated products. Showering with 2% triclosan is a recommended procedure to decolonize patients whose skin carries methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). At low concentrations, triclosan acts as a bacteriostatic; it targets bacteria mainly by inhibiting fatty acid synthesis. Key: Carbon: blue, Hydrogen: cream, Chlorine: yellow, Oxygen: green.
