Any cosmetics may be used on Pesah regardless whether they contain hametz or not since the hametz is not edible. Likewise, medications that taste bad may be used on Pesah by a person who is ill even though they may contain hametz. Such a person may even buy medications on Pesah from a non Jewish pharmacy. A person who is more or less fine but has a small headache or other minor issue may not consume medications containing hametz. Cough drops and other pleasant tasting medications may not be used if they contain hametz. One who has to take specific medications that contain hametz should ask his Rabbi about how to go about taking them on Pesah. Even though technically dish soap does not need to be kosher for Pesah, nevertheless since nowadays it is easy to find soap with a Passover certification one should use such soap.
