I've used motor vehicle degreaser on the derailier area and had no issues. I use citrus degreaser on the frame.

Degreaser if defined by anything that'll remove grease, then yes, it may damage it. If degreaser defined by what's sold by bike shops, such as citrus degreaser, then no, it won't damage it.
