I am trying to buy Liquid Hand Soap and have a question about one of components. My 11 y/o child has hand eczema and allergic to Methylisothiazolinone (MIT). I know it has different names. One of the ingredients of Liquid Black soap sounds similar:Sodium Lauroyl Methyl Isethionate. Is it the same thing?
Also, does soap contain and decyl glucoside products, as my child allergic to that as well.
So far we were using African Black soap for eczema. But we want to try liquid version.
Thank you for contacting SheaMoisture. Sodium Lauroyl Methyl Isethionate is a water soluble, coconut derived, surfactant while Methylisothiazolinone is a synthetic preservative. These are two separate ingredients. The African Black Soap Soothing Liquid Hand Soap does not contain decyl glucoside but many of our products do. Please review the ingredients list of the product you are interested in to see if it contains this ingredient or not. The ingredient list will be under the Product Details tab of the product page.
