What is the ingredient in soap that makes it antibacterial?

Recommended Posts

Yup. The active ingredient in soap is soap. Soap cleans. I don't think it's considered antibacterial, but it will certainly decrease bacteria on your skin just from the act of washing. And I suppose most of the little buggers don't really like to live in soap because of the alkaline pH.
