Now that we are easing out of lockdown worldwide, we are still in the new norm of washing everything twice over. And that includes our clothes. So what is the best laundry detergent for people with eczema, you may be wondering?
I have two that I am a firm favourite of and have used a lot. Amway’s SA8 Powder and Forever Living’s MPD (Multi-purpose detergent).
Out of the two brands, you will save more money on Forever’s MPD as you can use this multi-purpose detergent for the floor, the kitchen counters, the bathroom, your dishes and of course your clothes.
What To Look For When Buying a Detergent
There are two main requirements I look for when buying a detergent.
1. Is it truly organic
Amway’s SA8 is definitely organic, but as we don’t know what’s in it due to the secretive patent I cannot state the list of ingredients here. However, I did notice that my skin was fine after washing my clothes with this detergent.
On the other hand, Forever’s MPD is definitely organic as it has active aloe vera in it as well as coconut oil derivatives. My clothes are very clean once I wash with this.
2. Does it have perfume?
If the detergent has perfume in it, then I know not to buy it. The perfume will irritate my skin as well as my nose. As I also tend to suffer from a little asthma when around dust, pets or synthetic smells…I always check the label to see if this is the case of perfume. Only when my skin is okay do I use supermarket detergent. But in doses much smaller than the recommended amount.
MPD has been certified Kosher, Halal and also environmentally friendly as they do not use pesticides or herbicides in growing their aloe vera plants. They have their own plantation farms of aloe. Which is hand-filleted after harvesting.
I can safely say that using Forever Living Brand of products, especially when it comes to their detergent, has been a life-saver for my skin.
I highly recommend them!
