Choosing the right laundry products can help in managing allergies

Author: Robert McBride Ltd

It is difficult to find a range of laundry specific cleaning products that do not contain enzymes, fragrances or added colours that so commonly trigger skin reactions. It is even harder to find these specific products combined with excellent cleaning performance at an affordable price.

The enzymes present in a large proportion of washing powders and tablets are used to digest proteins and fats and remove stains. Any fabrics washed with biological products may contain traces of these enzymes which can irritate the skin of people with eczema.

The laundry cleaning market is split between powder tablet and liquid detergents. Each has particularly loyal consumers who will very rarely switch between the two formats. In addition, fabric softener can be used in conjunction with either of these products to help soften fabric and leave clothes easier to iron.

The Surcare range of non biological products, which also includes a washing up liquid, is specially formulated to not contain enzymes, fragrances or added colours that so commonly trigger skin reactions. All Surcare products are dermatologically tested, so you can be assured that your family's skin is being looked after.

Although a large proportion of non biological products were originally designed with babies delicate skin in mind, increasing numbers of adults with sensitive skin are seeing the benefits of using products like Surcare.
