What is it?
Chloroacetamide is a preservative used primarily to prevent yeast and bacteria growth in products. 

How can I avoid it?
Skin contact with Chloroacetamide is required for it to cause a rash. Discontinuation of exposure to products containing Chloroacetamide should result in improvement and/or resolution of your dermatitis. By law, all products made in the US for topical use have the ingredients listed either on the product package or the box that contains it, so check the labeling of your skin care products for this ingredient. If there is no information ask your pharmacist or call the company directly. At work, request a material safety data sheet (MSDS) to help identify potential sources of exposure.
