Full Answer

Sensitive skin tends to be prone to breakouts, itching and rashes and can be irritated by the wrong laundry detergent. Hypoallergenic laundry detergents are specifically formulated to prevent allergic reactions and other problems associated with sensitive skin. Detergents should be free of dyes, harsh chemicals and even scents. It's also possible to make detergent at home. By doing this, a person knows exactly what ingredients are in the laundry detergent.
