How Hypoallergenic Detergent Helps Protects Your Skin

Summer presents a new set of dirt and stains at a time when your skin is uniquely vulnerable to sunburn, bug bites, allergies, rashes, and more. This article explains why Heritage Park All-Purpose Laundry Detergent's hypoallergenic/fragrance free formula is perfect for safely cleaning your clothes and home linens without causing skin irritation.

If you're anything like us, summer brings a special set of stains to into your laundry room: ketchup that dripped off your hotdog at the ballpark; a splatter of BBQ sauce from your Fourth of July Bash; grass and dirt from a game of pickup soccer at the park; or sunscreen and bug spray stains from a day at the beach. Getting dirty is a big part of summer fun and adventure (those grass stains are a badge of honor). But making lasting summer memories can absolutely take a toll on your clothes, towels, and laundry.

At the same time, the summer season itself is tough on your skin. From bug bites to sunburn to mystery rashes, your family's skin is at its most vulnerable outside in the summer months. The last thing you need is a harsh detergent that triggers allergies and irritation. But you still need to get your laundry clean.

That's where fragrance-free all-purpose detergent comes in. This hypoallergenic liquid detergent is powerful enough to tackle tough, set-in stains while being non-irritating and gentle on your skin. Let's take a look at why our fragrance-free All-Purpose formula is your perfect summer detergent.


Navigating Summer's Skin Sensitivities: Why Your Detergent Matters

While summer stains can be a nuisance, summer skin issues can be downright uncomfortable and even painful. The warm, humid weather and time spent outdoors can be punishing to your skin, particularly if you've got sensitive skin to begin with.

  • Insect bites and subsequent itching and irritation.
  • Heat rash and prickly heat caused by clogged sweat glands.
  • Sunburn resulting from unprotected sun exposure.
  • Chafing due to increased friction from sweat and skin rubbing.
  • Allergic reactions to plants, such as poison ivy, oak, or sumac.
  • Acne breakouts triggered by excess sweat and oil production.
  • Eczema flare-ups aggravated by heat, sweat, and allergens.
  • Fungal infections, like athlete's foot, that thrive in warm, moist environments.

With these seasonal hazards to contend with, the last thing you need is a detergent that can irritate skin or trigger allergies and dermatitis.

Powerful Yet Gentle: How Our Fragrance-Free Formula Conquers Summer Stains

Of course, the purpose of any good detergent is to remove dirt, stains, and odors and leave your laundry fresh and clean. With fragrance-free Heritage Park All-Purpose Detergent, you need not sacrifice performance for the sake of your skin. This powerful formula is made to tackle the dirtiest laundry and remove the toughest stains:

Plant-based cleaning power. Natural ingredients clean, remove dirt, and neutralize odors.

Highly concentrated formula. No waste. You can also use our All-Purpose fragrance-free detergent to pre-treat and pre-soak stains. We also recommend making an enzyme stain spray with a 1:1 mix of water and detergent in a spray bottle.

Proprietary enzyme blend. The hypoallergenic All-Purpose Laundry Detergent contains a blend of powerful cleaning enzymes that break down and eliminate even the most stubborn stains. These enzymes target specific stain components -- including the protein found in sweat, dairy, meat, and grass stains -- while remaining gentle on your skin.

Versatile. Use as you would any regular detergent. Heritage Park All-Purpose fragrance-free works to hand wash or in your washing machine (traditional and high efficiency models) and in hot water, warm water, and cold water. Perfect for fabrics cotton, polyester, bamboo, rayon, blends, and other summer fabrics to clean without causing damage or fading. It's even safe for baby clothes. (Note: do not use for regular washing of silk, wool, or other protein-based fabrics. For these, use fragrance-free, hypoallergenic Heritage Park Silk and Wool Detergent, which is made without enzymes).



Environmentally friendly. Biodegradable and septic/grey water-safe.

Sensitive skin note: No matter the season, you should never use fabric softener or dryer sheets. These products contain artificial fragrance and leave a waxy coating on your clothing and machine.
