The Best Washing Powder for Sensitive Skin
Wondering what’s the best washing detergent for sensitive skin? Then, there are two key things you should consider: is the detergent free from perfumes and colourings, and is it specially designed for sensitive skin?
‘Free from’ detergents are formulated without the unnecessary additives that may cause skin irritation, like fragrance or colour. These are known allergens that could cause you to have an allergic skin reaction if you have sensitive skin.
When considering what’s the best washing liquid for sensitive skin, it’s also good to check if the product’s been specially developed for sensitive skin. A detergent like this will have a mild formula that’s gentle to skin and fabrics, and is likely to have been dermatologically tested to ensure it’s suitable for sensitive skin.
Persil’s range of non-bio laundry detergents and Comfort Pure‘s fabric conditioners are specially developed for sensitive skin.
Should I Use a Baby Detergent for Sensitive Skin?
We all know that babies have the most delicate skin of all, so do you need to use a laundry detergent specially designed for babies? No, there’s no need to go out and buy a specific baby detergent. A washing detergent for sensitive skin that doesn’t contain colours or perfumes is gentle enough for both you and your baby’s skin, and can help reduce the risk of skin irritation for the whole family.
Remember: consult your doctor if you have persistent skin irritations after trying a range of laundry detergents. A medical professional can help determine the root of your irritation, run allergy tests, and identify whether you may have a skin condition, like eczema.
