Anything that's a struggle to say three times fast doesn't belong in your bathroom, and that certainly goes for personal care products like soaps, lotions and cosmetics.

For example "antibacterial" soaps often include endocrine disruptors, which, in addition to breeding "supergerms" resistant to these cleaners, may be doing your body serious harm and are wreaking havoc on fish and other organisms after they escape into the water stream after you flush.

That's just one example. Remember, the rule goes like this: If you can't say it, don't use it to "clean" yourself.
