If you find yourself suddenly itchy after putting on freshly laundered clothing, you might want to check the label of your favorite laundry detergent. It may not be as clean as you think. We all rely on it to get our whites brighter and keep our colors vibrant. It just takes one stubborn stain to ruin your favorite blouse. In order to get the job done, detergents may be made with dyes, perfumes and other chemicals which can aggravate skin and pollute our waterways. Detergent doesn’t completely wash out of clothes and can sit on your skin all day long. So it’s not uncommon to have an allergy or sensitivity to laundry detergent. It can trigger adverse skin reactions and conditions like dermatitis. That’s especially true for those with a history of eczema and skin allergies.
As moms we are troubled by the ingredients found in everyday detergents and other cleaning products. When it comes to laundry there is a growing concern due to higher concentrations of harsh chemicals they contain and the potential health issues those ingredients might cause. Chemicals like phosphates, synthetics, petrochemicals and dyes which can aggravate skin according to the experts. Sodium lauryl sulfate (or SLS) is a chemical that affects the skin’s oil layer and can cause skin to dry out. Fragrances, which are not necessary for cleaning clothing and textiles, can often cause allergic reactions.
