Eyelid dermatitis: Experience in 203 cases

Cocamidopropyl betaine (CAPB) was found more often than expected, because it is often a shampoo ingredient. However, it is now in many products including Dove soap, so adults have ample opportunity for exposure. CAPB in eye makeup remover or eye cosmetics22 or in contact lens solution23 can cause contact dermatitis of the eyelids. Apparently, it may also be hand-transferred, because it was seemingly a factor for several patients in this series who ostensibly were exposed to it in a shampoo.
