All my life I have had a mild case of sensitive skin. Some things will cause me to have a mild reaction, but luckily most won’t. My skin was much more sensitive when I was a child and I my boys have received that trait from my side of the family. My oldest, who is 5, reacts the most towards different irritants. He has eczema and so when different irritants start to react with his skin, he will get a pretty bad reaction on his arms and legs especially. It can be just a small simple thing that causes him initially to break out so it often goes unnoticed right away which turns his sensitivity into an all out breakout of itchy skin and rashes which is much harder to treat. I have switched to a lot of sensitive skin health and beauty products for use with him, especially for bathing, but had yet to try a sensitive skin laundry. I was excited to get to try out Arm & Hammer’s Sensitive Skin Plus Skin-Friendly Fresh Scent Laundry Detergent!
My first impression was that this detergent had different scent then I am used to but it smelled nice and earthy. I appreciated that very little of the scent lingered on the clean load of laundry giving me clean clothes that didn’t smell overly like a laundry detergent but instead just gave off a clean smell. I was also very surprised by how very little detergent was needed. I have used concentrated formulas before, but this seemed like an extra small amount of detergent needed per load. I haven’t noticed a difference from switching to this detergent with my own clothing but I know it does a good job cleaning as my clothes always feel soft and clean and look and smell great too. I do feel that the Arm & Hammer Sensitive Skin Detergent is a positive change for my children and especially my oldest. The detergent hasn’t cause any skin reactions from anyone in our family and I feel his clothing will be much gentler against his skin the next time he does have a reaction to something to not add to the irritation. It is great that this one detergent can be used for all of our clothing and I don’t need to switch between different bottles for different loads and family members.
Arm & Hammer Sensitive Skin Plus Skin-Friendly Fresh Scent laundry detergent is available as a liquid detergent that is safe for both standard and HE washing machines. It has a new scent that has been clinically tested and is safe, even for sensitive skin. Now, those with sensitive skin don’t have to choose scent free detergent!
