cleaning lenses with compressed air duster?

Hi,

Does anyone know if it's bad to use compressed air cans to dust lenses and other camera parts? AFAIK, although these are labelled 'air cans' they actually emit a type of flammable gas which liquefies on contact into some form of alcohol. I'm not sure if this condensate will damage the lens coatings.

Thanks.
