My son has been tested allergic to Limonene and Linalool and it's in an awful lot of products. It seems to be giving him eczema. I have found a hand wash, shower gel and shampoo but now I am looking at laundry products. Often these ingredients are simply listed as perfume and I have just phoned Persil to find it IS in Persil non bio and Comfort Pure. Does anyone know of laundry products that are free of these ingredients?

Perhaps look at Surcare it is made without perfumes or dyes. It is the only washing powder my DGM can use on her extremely sensitive skin.

for handwash we are using Carex sensitive
for shower gel Sanex junior
for Shampoo we are using Simple

I have found that 'perfume' listed in ingredients can often turnout to be Linalool or Limonene
