Anti-bacterial soap necessary with BP use?

Recommended Posts

I know that people with acne should use a cleanser with triclosan (anti-bacterial), but since BP is an anti-bacterial agent, could I switch to a soap w/o triclosan and save my skin from so much drying? Maybe switch from Cetaphil anti-bacterial to Cetaphil moisturizing?

There's no reason to use an antibacterial soap. The bacteria on the surface of your skin presents no problem, therefore antibacterial soap is not needed. Any gentle cleanser is fine.
