If your laundry detergent is causing you to experience itching or skin irritation, it is possible that the chemicals and fragrances are exacerbating a laundry detergent allergy. Finding a laundry detergent with clean ingredients can be key to overcoming an allergic reaction. EnviroKlenz provides products that are free from harsh chemicals and powerful fragrances. Here is what you need to know about allergies caused by certain laundry detergents:

What Causes a Laundry Detergent Allergy?


Synthetic fragrances can worsen allergic reactions in some people. Fragrances are often added in the form of chemicals to help make a product smell better. They can come in the form of floral, fruity, or natural scents. The chemicals can be irritating to the sinuses and airways when you are constantly exposed to them. EnviroKlenz laundry products help to remove bad odors or other potent smells without the use of harmful fragrances. 


    Surfactants are chemicals found in detergents that help to loosen the dirt and grime on your clothes. Common surfactants that cause allergic reactions include sodium lauryl sulfate, sodium laureth sulfate, and alkylbenzene sulfonate. EnviroKlenz does not rely on these unsafe chemicals to remove surface stains and grime. Our blend of ingredients is mineral-based, non-toxic, and hypoallergenic to naturally and gently wash fabrics. 



      Bleach is a common chemical included in laundry detergents. It is especially common in detergents used to make white clothing brighter. This cleaning agent can be the cause of major skin irritation or chemical burns. It is even more dangerous if ingested. This is not an ingredient you want to have lying around if you have pets or small children. EnviroKlenz products contain ingredients that naturally brighten clothes without requiring bleach or other chemical brighteners to do so.


      Parabens are chemical preservatives. They are used in laundry detergents to help extend the shelf life of the products. In addition to causing skin irritation, parabens are known to disrupt your body’s production of hormones. EnviroKlenz products are shelf stable without the need for harmful parabens.

      What Are the Signs of an Allergic Reaction

      Some symptoms of an allergic reaction may manifest fairly quickly, while others may not show until you have been wearing clothes washed with an irritating detergent for several days. Here are some of the signs to watch out for:

      • Rashes
      • Dry or itchy skin
      • Blisters
      • Headaches
      • Constant sneezing or coughing

      If you or a family member is experiencing any of these symptoms, discontinue the use of the detergent immediately. Purchase a detergent that is free from fragrances or unnecessary chemicals. EnviroKlenz offers laundry cleaning products that are safe for your family and the planet. They always create products that do not contain any harmful chemicals or overpowering synthetic fragrances. By keeping the ingredient list basic, EnviroKlenz can provide its customers with non-irritating alternatives to generic laundry detergents.
