Works great for eczema prone skin, but...
We have been using this product for about 2 years for our eczema prone son, but I have since developed an allergy or sensitivity to the laundry powder, not sure exactly what plant ingredients are used but would love to know as I may have to use a competing brand of a similar product as a substitute.
Purchased at Woolworths Physical store for $4.50.
This product is just "okay" for a number of reasons:
It contains no Enzymes. This means certain types of stains will not be removed, no matter what temperature you use. Result? Some stains will be left behind, leaving you to rewash your clothes
It contains No Oxygen-based bleaching product. Other stains that cannot be removed by enzymes are not bleached. Result? You end up with sweat-stains building up on your clothes
People think this product is "good" for the environment. This is incorrect. Most, if not all detergents are now free fr...om Phosphates. The enzymes and oxygen products are good for septic systems (especially the former, which aid in digesting other matter). Unless you want to spend your time soaking white shirts in bleaches, detergent and everything to remove sweat stains, AVOID THIS PRODUCT AT ALL COSTS. Once I reverted to traditional powder, and treated my sweat-stains with a little "Radiant Black Wash" on my white shirts, the stains were removed. So much for an eco-choice powder.
I choose to purchase this product as I wanted a laundry powder that was gentle on the chemical front and not so toxic like some detergents can be. When I saw the price of the laundry powder I nearly didn't buy it as it easily one of the most costly products on the shelf.
The powder cleans good enough and doesn't make the clothes smell really with any sort of fragrance.
A gentle less toxic laundry powder that reduces the risk of adverse reactions for people with chemical sensitivities. Cleans on a satisfactory level.
More costly than other laundry powders.
