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.

    A patch of irritated skin? As in a defined patch with a fairly neat border? Is it slightly raised when you touch it?
    2a-2c, medium texture, porous/ colour treated. Three years CG. Past bra strap length heading for waist.

    CO-wash: Inecto coconut/ Elvive Volume Collagen
    Treatments: Komaza Care Matani, coconut/ sweet almond/ fractionated coconut oils, Hairveda Sitrinillah
    Leave in: Fructis Sleek & Shine (old), Gliss Ultimate Volume, various Elvive
    Styler: Umberto Giannini jelly, Au Naturale styling gelee
    Flour sack towel, pixie diffuse or air dry.
    Experimenting with: benign neglect

    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.
