Are household dish detergents bad for your skin?

    It depends on what ingredients are in them. Anything in excess can lead to negative effects, so it is probably safer to use a pair of dish washing gloves if you are experiencing problems. Because dish detergent is designed to remove greases and residues from dishes, its formula is probably not as mild as a soap specifically designed for washing hands.

    There is a concern over a chemical called triclosan, which is found in many kinds of dishwashing liquids, hand sanitizers, and liquid soaps as an antibacterial agent. Scientists are worried that triclosan disrupts the endocrine system and may create antibiotic-resistant bacteria, but there is not enough evidence to suggest that these things are true yet.
