Well, haven't you ever thought that your organism is a wisely 'constructed' structure which can adjust to many things, and that those cleansers are no more harmful to your skin than the air that you breath in every second? (especially, since you live in an urban area, presumably)
Honestly, I am inclined to think that if you would put an organism into an absolutely sterile (which is impossible) area, this poor organism would have died. In order to maintain the immune system of any organism in order, this organism needs to be exposed to some kind of attack... let it be soap...ha-ha
