The turnover of triclosan is shown in the graph. It does not mean that all of it was used in Sweden.

Triclosan is a substance that is used for its bactericidal properties in hygienic and cleaning products. In other products, like sports wear of different kinds, Triclosan is used to prevent bad smell. It is not possible to tell from the chart if the use of Triclosan also has declined in such articles as it only accounts for what is used in chemical products.
