One of the few household chores that I do, despite having hand eczema, is the laundry. I don’t know why, but I just enjoy it.
I always have to take extra care though, so that my hands do not come into direct contact with our laundry detergent. In the event that I do, I run off to rinse it off immediately.
Besides caring for it during the use of it, I realize that sometimes, if I use too much laundry detergent to wash our clothes, it’ll flare up my sensitive skin even after the clothes have dried and I’m folding them! How odd, isn’t it?
I was about to resign my fate to having on-off hand eczema flares when Ecover was sent to my doorstep. And using them over the past few months have been nothing short of amazing!
Ecover Zero Fabric Conditioner ($7.50) and Laundry Liquid ($23.95)
For starters, the Ecover Zero range has been dermatologically tested to be safe for those with sensitive skin. Using gentler ingredients derived from plants and minerals, the Ecover Zero range of products can help minimize allergic symptoms with its 0% fragrance, 0% colouring and phosphate-free formulation!
Anything that is fragrance free and colouring free is a total bliss for my hands!
The absence of fragrance from the newly wash laundry was a welcoming change. In spite of the lack of fragrance, each batch of laundry washed turns out smelling fresh and clean!
And so far, the skin’s not complaining. Once, I spilled some of the laundry liquid on my hands, and I left it there for a while just to test it out. I was honestly a little scared of what may happened after, but thank goodness, nothing did! The skin survived! :P
As you can tell by now, I’m pretty pleased with my new laundry liquid and fabric conditioner.
