Revealing the link between your detergent and skin irritations: an approach for sensitive skin

If you suffer from eczema, allergies or simply have sensitive skin, you will know how uncomfortable it can be to wear clothes that irritate your skin. What if we told you that your detergent could be one of the culprits? In this article, we will teach you how to recognize an allergy and give you advice on choosing the right detergent, thus avoiding those annoying sensations.

How to recognize allergies and irritations on your skin? Signs that your detergent may be affecting your skin.

When your skin reacts to detergent, it can manifest itself in different ways. Some of the most common signs include:

  1. Redness: The skin turns red and may feel hot to the touch.
  2. Itching: Irritated skin can cause a constant or intermittent itchy sensation.
  3. Dryness: The skin feels dry and rough, and may crack.
  4. Inflammation: The skin swells and may be painful to the touch.

Additionally, it is important to note that reactions to detergent do not always manifest themselves immediately. In some cases, it can take hours or even days to appear.

How to choose a detergent suitable for sensitive skin?

To avoid irritation and allergies, it is essential to opt for natural detergents, without aggressive chemicals or synthetic fragrances. An excellent example is our Laundry Soap for Baby and Sensitive Skin No. 12 . Formulated with organic virgin olive oil soap of Spanish origin, it is free of enzymes, GMOs, petroleum derivatives, dyes and harmful preservatives. Plus, it's vegan and 100% biodegradable.

When it comes to caring for sensitive skin, it's crucial to choose a detergent that doesn't contain irritating ingredients. Here are some tips to make the right decision:

    1. Look for natural detergents: Detergents made with natural ingredients, like our No. 12 Laundry Soap, tend to be less irritating to the skin.
    2. Avoid synthetic fragrances: Artificial fragrances can cause irritation to sensitive skin. Opt for unscented detergents or those with natural fragrances.
    3. Look at the labels: Be sure to read product labels and avoid products that contain harmful enzymes, GMOs, petroleum derivatives, dyes and preservatives.
    4. Consult a dermatologist : If you have persistent skin problems, a dermatologist can help you determine which ingredients you should avoid and which ones are safe for you.

How to care for your clothes and protect your sensitive skin

Taking proper care of your clothes is essential to keep your skin healthy and free of irritation. Here we leave you some additional recommendations:

  1. Dry your clothes outdoors: Whenever possible, avoid using dryers, as the heat can cause detergent residue to stick to the fibers of your clothes.
  2. Clean the washing machine filter: Be sure to regularly clean your washing machine filter to prevent the build-up of detergent and fabric softener residue, which could be transferred to your clothes.
  3. Avoid mixing clothes of different fabrics : avoid washing clothes of different fabrics together, as some materials may retain more detergent residue than others.
  4. Wash at appropriate temperatures: Following the washing instructions for each garment is essential to remove dirt and detergent residue. Our No. 12 Laundry Soap is effective at temperatures from 20°C, allowing you to wash your clothes responsibly and carefully.
