It is actually getting harder to find soaps that are NOT "anti-microbial", since consumers are obsessed with such products the manufacturers are producing them. Soap in and of itself has some anti-microbial properties, though its main function is to help wash the dirt and bugs off the skin, water does most of the work.

Really? That's messed up! I can see how people can be easily manipulated into thinking that only water isn't enough to wash off their hands (take the need to wash your hands with soap after you use the toilet! Even I feel like I really have to! >_<), but if people would do a little research, they'd see that it won't take much but simple soap! There's no need for some fancy Anti-microbial soap! u_u''

Default Anti Bacterial Soap

Yes I too don't find much difference in antibacterial soaps. I use herbal soaps and also use turmeric powder in water for anti bacterial effect.
