Many well known washing powder brands include a number of irritants, such as chlorine, benzene and alkylphenol ethoxylates (APEs).
APEs are bioaccumulative whichs means that once they enter a living organism they can accumulate in tissue over time – APEs have been detected in human blood and breast milk.
For people who suffer eczema and other dry,flakey skin conditions, the presence of these chemicals (up to two percent of the weight of the clothing) can further aggravate their condition.
When sensitive skin comes into contact with the residue from these chemicals left on clothes, a chemical reaction can take place, damaging already vulnerable skin.
Tests were undertaken to create a natural cleanser that would effectively and hygienically clean clothes, but without the use of harsh chemicals that damage your skin.
Skin Salve skin care products and the unique laundry powder have been sold worldwide for over 20 years and is known to help beat eczema, psoriasis and other dry skin conditions by minimising exposure to harmful chemicals.
