Case Summary:

This lawsuit alleges that Colgate intentionally misrepresented to consumers that washing their hands with certain Colgate brand Softsoap Antibacterial Handsoaps – which contains the active ingredient triclosan – is more effective at killing or eliminating germs than washing with ordinary or conventional liquid hand soaps, which do not contain triclosan.  The lawsuit alleges that Colgate lacked scientific evidence that hand soap containing triclosan was in fact more effective than hand soap without the chemical.
