Be keen in choosing the right laundry detergent for your little ones

Before we go on to our main topic, let's absorb some knowledge first.

►What are detergents? 
They are water-soluble cleansing agents that combine with impurities and dirt to make them more soluble and differ from soap in not forming a scum with the salts in hard water. Some terms that are related to detergents are cleaner, cleanser, cleaning agent; soap, soap powder, dish soap, or soap flakes.

►What are laundry detergents?

Laundry detergent, or washing powder, is a type of detergent (cleaning agent) that is added for cleaning laundry, commonly mixtures of chemical compounds including alkylbenzenesulfonates, which are similar to soap but are less affected by hard water. While detergent is still sold in powdered form, liquid detergents have been taking major market shares in many countries since their introduction in the 1950s.

Now, for the main topic - let's discuss how to choose the right laundry detergent for babies.

Your baby may be small, but the heap of laundry he can create is far from it. To clean all this, you need a special baby laundry detergent that doesn't irritate your baby's sensitive skin. 

The skin thickens with age, so naturally, babies have extremely thin skin, making it very delicate. Because the skin is so thin, it makes it very sensitive and easily irritable.
First, avoid dyes and fragrances.
Detergents with fragrances and dyes can be very irritating to the skin. Usually, detergents will tell you right on the bottle if they're free of these chemicals, but sometimes you might have to go digging. Be sure to look at the ingredients before you buy.

Second, it should be hypoallergenic
Although very rare, some babies -- especially those with eczema or other skin conditions -- can have allergies to some of the chemicals in regular detergent. "Hypoallergenic detergents have fewer things in them that will trigger allergic reactions. Better safe than sorry - whether baby is prone to allergies or not, choose the hypoallergenic brand.

Finally, choose liquid. 
Liquid laundry detergent is always better than powder. It is more effective on food and greasy or oily stains. It also dissolves well on water and doesn't leave residue on clothes. Liquid detergents typically rinse out better than powders, which can leave behind residue that may irritate your baby's skin. 

The new Johnson's Baby Laundry Detergent in Ultra gentle and Active Clean

All the said characteristics can be found in the new Johnson's Baby Laundry Detergent. It was designed to ensure effective yet ultra-gentle cleaning of your little one's clothes. It was also developed by dermatologists for every baby's age and stage.

It comes in two variants. The Ultra Gentle which is recommended for use on the clothes of 0 - 12 months old babies, rinses clean so no harsh irritants touch newborn's delicate skin. It has silk protein softeners and is mild enough for newborn skin.

The Active Clean is for use on the clothes of babies 12 months and up. It effectively cleans germs and 9 tough stains with natural propolis and green tea.

Both variants which are available in 1 liter and 500 ml refill are free of phosphate and have no addition of fluorescent, bleach, and colorant.

Let's not settle for anything less. Let's not sacrifice the safety of our little ones. Let's choose the right laundry detergent for our baby's clothing because as parents our main responsibility is to ensure their safety and comfort at all times while they are young.
