Aside from annoying and itchy, rashes can be downright frustrating. Especially when you can’t figure out why it’s there. You’ve tried food triggers, you’ve eliminated synthetic fragrances, and you’ve even switched to “all natural” products…all to no avail. What are you missing? Possibly methylisothiazolinone.
When consumers demanded the removal of formaldehyde from skin care products, many companies complied. But, they replaced it with MI.
So, why don’t those with an allergy to MI simply switch brands of dishwashing soap of wipes? Like many allergies to personal-care chemicals, reactions don’t show up immediately. It’s easy to forget which products you’ve used throughout the past 24-48 hours.
If you haven’t found relief for your persistent, itchy rash- especially one on your hands, around your hairline, or around sensitive private areas (common with use from person-care wipes) check the ingredients for methylisothiazolinone (MI).
