Interesting article about this preservative. I checked my products and found it in my Suave conditioner and sulfate poo. Suave tends to irritate my skin, so I have to use them sparingly. It's also in my Tresemme Naturals conditioner. I have a patch of irritated skin on my eyelid right now that is probably caused by some product running down my face when I shower. I guess I'll quit using those as co wash or rinse out and see what happens.

Most preservatives are associated with some kind of skin irritation, so it wouldn't be shocking.

Thank you for this article. I am going to be more cautious when seeing this ingredient and if I react to it.

A patch of irritated skin? As in a defined patch with a fairly neat border? Is it slightly raised when you touch it?

It looks a little raised, no regular border. It seems to be exactly the same (and in the same place) as what I saw the dermatologist about last year - and was diagnosed as a small patch of eczema. Last year it spread over more of my eyelid and just above it before I did anything about it. It's a very small itchy patch right now. I'm trying to not let the products run down my face when I rinse.

Atopic eczema was what I was suspecting. If you can avoid the sulphates in all skin, oral and body products, bubbles only can certainly be a trigger as can chlorine and fluoride in tap water. Be sure you are eating plenty of oily fish and an anti inflammatory diet generally. Applying a cream containing medical grade lanolin before showering can help protect the area from the water and products.

Thanks, Firefox. Does this cream work?

I actually had been thinking of asking you if there was something I could use as a barrier cream while I showered.


The dermatologist had me using some creams that didn't make me comfortable - hydrocortisone (so close to my eye!) and one of the prescription ones with the really awful black box warnings, though I've forgotten the name and threw it out after a couple of uses. I would like to avoid that this time around.

I appreciate the diet suggestions. I do try to eat like that, but of course I'm far from perfect.
