Triclosan: An anti-bacterial agent, widely used in skincare products (also used in weed killers). There is evidence to suggest triclosan may contribute to creating strains of bacteria that are resistant to antibiotics, due to its wide use in skincare products.

is this ingredient not good for acne ?

i should probably stop using it now i read it can disrupt hormones too

Currently the FDA is forcing manufacturers prove that triclosan is beneficial and not harmful, but probably best to avoid it for now. I think benzoyl peroxide products are best for acne.
