I've been using Clearisil daily face wash for a number of years now and know this an ingredient in it. A few years ago they used to advertise it as the active ingredient. I dont know how extensive this study was, but this article got me a bit worried:

I googled triclosan and quickly found this:

"While the companies that manufacture products containing this chemical claim that it is safe, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has registered it as a pesticide. The chemical formulation and molecular structure of this compound are similar to some of the most toxic chemicals on earth, relating it to dioxins and PCBs. The EPA gives triclosan high scores both as a human health risk and as an environmental risk."
