No smell and cleans the wash (liquid)
We've used Natures Organics Purity for years because it had very little perfume, my husband didn't react to it and it cleaned the clothes. Then they "improved" it. The liquid soap and the conditioner became so smelly that even our daughter said her lips would burn and she suggested this product. More expensive but no perfume and the wash is cleaner.
Omo Sensitive powder - no smell!
I've just noticed a January 2019 review stating that this product is no longer unscented. If that is the case, I would no longer recommend it. Who would have thought people would have to endlessly chase around from brand to brand to get a washing powder that doesn't have perfume added to it? Clearly there is a market for at least one scent-free washing powder. Can someone just make that, write "unscented" on the box, and stick to it please!
Another ProductReview member kindly recommended Cold Power Sensitive as an unscented option, so I will try that next.
I do not suffer from allergies, I just don't want to smell of washing powder.
This review is for the powder version.
Purchased in January 2017.
Great if you like clean clothes without the perfume
4/5 stars. Why? Well I'll tell you why :P
It has no colours or perfumes so you avoid 2 things :
1 - you can't accidentally stain your clothes if you drip it on them and leave it or simply don't turn your machine on straight away.
2 - your clothes smell very clean but without any fragrance which is great for sensitive skin & sensitive noses!
Dissolves well like all Omo liquids (I don't use powders as they do not dissolve 100% when used in high efficiency front loaders - any machine that uses under 70 litres a wash is what you'd define as...high efficiency which means they cannot dissolve hard to dissolve formulas). If you like to wash in temperatures over 40C you should use something like Omo Sensitive that has no enzymes in it (enzymes are almost completely destroyed in any temp over 40 degrees). Compared to Omo Ultimate liquid that has enzymes, you probably notice a 15% difference in stain removal performance however ultimate has a strong smell so I prefer to go without the enzymes plus for hygiene reasons like to wash in 60C temps often.
powders & liquids
It has definitely changed back, can't smell perfume like it had, but I have been noticing lot of products which say for sensitive skin have perfume smell is costly to experiment with cleaning products.
Even have noticed purity sensitive has gone down the wrong path for people with sensitive skin.
Great whether you are sensitive or not
I tried this after having an allergic skin reaction and getting hives. I'm still using it now as it is one of the best detergents I've used, smells nice, gets everything clean and comes in great little capsules. A bit expensive but what price do you put on your health? Just buy it on special!
Excellent for my baby and husband!
Both my husband and baby have sensitive skin and omo works wonders! It really leaves the clothes super clean and smelling great! My baby does explosive poo's and I only need to spray white king and use omo and its totally done! Worth buying and I would advise buying it when it's on sale and bulking up. Today I purchased 2kgs for about $9! Keep a look out
Smells great, cleans fantastic, ideal for sensitive skin
Bit expensive but worth every cent!
Best washing liquid out there
I have sensitive skin and can break out in rashes from detergents with fragrances. Since switching to Omo Sensitive liquid (for front loaders) I haven't had a problem. I was a bit worried about what my work socks would smell like but after washing they do not smell like sweaty feet.
This is the only detergent that I use
Is gentle on sensitive skin
Hard to find the double concentrated liquid bottles anymore.
Have been using this powder for 9 months now with great results. Bought it because i'd heard i'd get a really clean wash that was economical as i only needed to use half the amount recommended by Omo using the provided scoop. Found half scoop cleans as well as one full scoop.
When my washing machine needed maintenance the Bosch repair man suggested i use 1/4 scoop washing powder and i'm finding 1/4 scoop works just as well as one whole scoop.
The 5kg box seems to last forever!
Economical. Only need to use 1/4 scoop. Cleans really well
Glad I tried it
We have tried most of these laundry detergents now but this one is definitely the best. We have sensitive allergies and some of the powders really seemed to irratate them, but this Omo Sensitive causes no problems at all. It also smells nice, and so I would definitely recommend it
Only one i use.
This laundry powder is great. My family have very sensitive skin and we react to every laundry powder out there, usually by getting rashes and itchy skin. But omo sensitive doesn't give us any allergic reactions and it is great at getting the clothes clean. If you buy iy in bulk it is actually really good value for money.
Great for sensitive skin.
A little pricey in small packs
fantastic product. removes stains very well. works great on kids clothing.very gentle on the skin especially eczema prone skins. Very economical as only need to use small amount.
removes stains without harsh chemicals. great for washing all types of clothing. works very well on kids clothing
i use this washing powder as it doesnt irritate my skin as some other powders with fragrance makes me itchy, doesnt leave a strong smell on clothes and removes all stains from clothes, doubles as a soaker to remove stains. Concentrated
this washing powder is very gentle on my skin, it is concentrated so i only need a small scoop per washing load and its great for soaking clothes. It removes all stains in the wash and with stubborn stains i make a small paste and put it directly on the clothes
price, quite dear for a small 2kg box
I really like this laundry powder as my son has very sensitive skin and this is the only power which does not give him a rash. It washes well; just make sure you do not put the power in the washing machine if it is a big clump as this will leave a white residue on your clothes. I find that it really lasts and it takes out a lot of stains and with two small boys I have a lot of stained clothing. Omo is on special very often so I will usually buy a couple which lasts till the next time it is on special.
Great for people with skin sensitivities. Smells nice. A little goes a long way.
Expensive, but it is on special often.
I have been using the OMO Sensitive liquid wash for a very long time now. After having used so many different brands and products over the years, I have found OMO to be the best and have continued to use it for years. I love how it washes the clothes. They are left feeling and smelling clean. One cap is enough for one wash... the price is somewhat more expensive when comparing to the other brands that are available, but well worth it when you think that your clothes are the one thing that are constantly making contact with your body... this is kind to the skin and I'd rather pay that bit extra for comfort.
Cleans well, great for sensitive skin - not overpowering.
Several of my kids have very sensitive skin and will break out in rashes with most laundry detergents. I am very sensitive to smell, so most detergents leave me feeling nauseous and give me a migraine. Omo Sensitive does not irritate any one's skin and doesn't leave any strong scent so it is great for the whole family. I am also very fussy regarding my washing, but this gets the clothes clean and keeps all my whites lovely and white. It can be expensive but I have found that it is often on special in the supermarkets so I make sure I buy it then.
Cleans well, keeps whites white, gentle on the skin, no scent, often on special.
Expensive when not on special.
have been using this for years and I wouldn't use any other product! I used to come out in a rash all over my body from where clothes touched my skin as I was allergic to laundry powder. This is the one product that I can use and not be affected!
Good price, cleans well, wonderful on sensitive skin
Questions & Answers
There is nothing on the label or OMO website that I can find to say if his is suitable or unsuitable for septic systems. Does anyone know?
