Sensitive skin needs gentle care

Posted Mar 08 2011 12:00am

Fragrances, enzymes and optical brighteners in many common household laundry products can irritate sensitive skin. Itchiness, redness and eczema can be triggered when residues of laundry detergents are transferred from clothing onto the skin. Suffers can struggle to find an alternative laundry product that doesn’t contain ingredients that cause irritation, but luckily a traditional laundry product made from pure soap can help to alleviate some of the symptoms of sensitive skin.

Soap Flakes have been used for centuries for their gentle but effective cleaning power as well as their environmental credentials. Soap Flakes manufacturer, Dri-Pak now produces Liquid Soap Flakes to fit in with customers’ busy lifestyles and provide gentle but effective cleaning power.

Liquid Soap Flakes contain simply pure soap with no added perfumes or detergents. They gently clean clothes and leave no residue behind to irritate sensitive skin. The instantly soluble liquid does not form a gel in cold water, meaning it can be used at cool wash temperatures, requiring less energy per wash. They do not contain any animal products and have not been tested on animals, making them suitable for vegetarians and vegans. Liquid Soap Flakes also do not contain palm oil - the vegetable origin of the soap uses rapeseed and sunflower oil. Suitable for cleaning delicate fabrics including wool, lace, silk and leather, Liquid Soap Flakes can be used to wash all family members’ clothes without irritating sensitive skin.

To use Liquid Soap Flakes in an automatic washing machine, simply add between 1 and 2 capfuls (depending of the water hardness) to the detergent drawer and set the desired programme according to the garment washing instructions. Ensure that the drum is at least half full to prevent excess foam. For hand washing, add to warm water and wash according to garment instructions, then rinse thoroughly.

The 750ml bottle provides up to 15 wash loads, and at £2.99 provides great value for money. Pick them up in the laundry aisle at Tesco or Waitrose, as well as independent retailers or direct from Dri-Pak on (0115) 9325165.
