141007OSMmethylisothiazolinone-smMethylisothiazolinone, or MI for short, is a common ingredient in many skin care products that can cause itchy rashes. A preservative that kills bacteria and prevents fungus from forming, MI can be found in shampoos, conditioners, dishwashing liquids, detergents, beauty products and baby wipes. It can also be found in some water-based paints.  

Methylchloroisothiazolinone, or MCI for short, is a similar ingredient that can also trigger rashes. Over the years, MI and MCI have been used in combination. But increasingly, MI is being used on its own and in greater concentrations.
