(NaturalNews) Antibacterial soaps and wipes have become the "go-to" products in commercial body care, promising greater protection from bacteria and viruses that make people sick. What these cheap, deceptive, mainstream chemical concoctions fail to mention is that they often subject consumers to allergic reactions, and a slow, subtle absorption of poison. In fact, a new consumer report has found that an increasing number of people are breaking out in poison ivy-like rashes when they routinely use certain products laced with a harsh chemical preservative called methylisothiazolinone.

Scientists beginning to understand problems caused by antibacterial soaps

Modern researchers and scientists are just now beginning to understand the long-term negative impacts of chemical soap agents like triclosan. Triclosan in antibacterial soaps is flushed into waste water, where it begins to beckon new, highly adapted forms of bacteria that ultimately appear in the water supply. These new, powerful bacteria render antibiotics useless at times.

Pervasive body care preservative causing poison ivy-like skin rashes

But now dermatologists are worried about a different chemical agent called methylisothiazolinone, which is a preservative primarily used in pre-moistened wipes and antibacterial liquid soaps. This toxic preservative is eliciting allergic reactions that are rarely talked about or reported on, but more dermatologists are speaking up about the poisonous preservative.

"In the last two or three years, we've suddenly seen a big increase in people with this type of allergy," Dr. Matthew Zirwas, director of the contact dermatitis center at Ohio State University's Wexner Medical Center, said in a news release. "For some patients, their rash has been unexplained and going on for years."

Methylisothiazolinone, which is the body care industry's version of "meth," is manufactured into many products, including hair products, laundry detergents, cleaning supplies, sunscreens and facial cosmetics. It's everywhere in modern body care concoctions, and it's not doing the skin any good.

"Concentrations of the preservative have increased dramatically in some products in the last few years, as manufacturers stopped using other preservatives like paraben and formaldehyde," Zirwas said.

The chemical preservative is practically a poison and causes a painful itchy and blistery rash similar to poison ivy. Many clients who see Dr. Matthew Zirwas have breakouts all over their face, where the chemical soaps are lathered in and where shampoos pour over. Many are affected by rashes that overtake the genital region, in and around the buttocks, where flushable wipes are used.

Antibacterial soaps are a scam

The biggest marketing scam about these antibacterial soaps is that "they keep the germs at bay, protecting the individual from sickness." This marketing lie tries to completely hide the fact that the average human comes into contact with hundreds of thousands of bacteria and viruses daily, and it's the human immune system that prevents the illness, not the toxic soap. The only thing the soap does is encourage bacteria strains to adapt and grow smarter and stronger, allowing new superbugs to attack the immune system later on with more force and variability.

On top of that, methylisothiazolinone-laced products incite nerve damage. Similar in chemical structure to Agent Orange, the toxic soap preservative is often dished out on the American dinner table, as a thin layer of dish soap poison. The nerve toxin is so dangerous, Japan's Standard for Cosmetics restricts its use in body care, while Canada has placed the toxic preservative on its Prohibited and Restricted Cosmetics Ingredients list.

Practically speaking, yes, the very products you thought were there to protect you from bacteria are the very products you should be protecting yourself from ever coming in contact with. Sadly, these nerve agent toxins are used in many corners of the everyday American household -- poured over the body, lathered in, wiped on and slurped from.
