Clarcon Skin Sanitizers Contain Harmful Bacteria


The FDA recently found high concentrations of harmful bacteria in Clarcon products. Utah-based Clarcon Biological Chemistry Laboratory Inc. manufactures brands including Citrushield Lotion, Dermassentials, Skin Shield, Iron First Barrier Hand Treatment, and Total Skin Care.

The FDA recommends customers throw away all Clarcon products, according to an AP article. The Clarcon manufacturing plant was found to have “serious deviations from the FDA’s Good Manufacturing Practice requirements,” says the article.

Clarcon might have to change the wording in the “Quality” section of its website after this. It says:

Poor manufacturing can destroy great science. For this reason, Clarcon manufactures its own products to ensure that the formulas developed in its laboratories are produced consistently and precisely for customers.
