Hurt BUT people like seeing bubbles so the manufactures put the chemicals to make it look like it is doing something. Just like is a medicine placed on a cut burns the more it burns the more folks think it is working.

The plus side of bubbles is it helps plumbers as the soap scum sticks to piping and eventually reduces the piping diameter and then we are called to clean the drainage system. So there is a bright side to bubbles
