Why Use Non Bio for Babies’ Clothing?

Baby clothes tend to present somewhat of a challenge when it comes to doing the laundry. The issue that many parents face is that they want to use a laundry detergent that’s powerful enough to remove all those classic childhood stains such as milk and poop, but they also want to use detergents for sensitive skin to help protect their baby’s delicate skin.

So what’s the solution? How can you safely and effectively do your baby’s laundry?  


The Best Detergent for Baby Clothes

One of the best ways to clean your baby’s clothes is to use the right kind of detergent – one that’s powerful, and yet perfect for sensitive skin. Persil recommend using non bio for baby clothes as it ticks all the boxes, meeting the needs of parents who strive to provide the best for their little ones.

  • Non Bio has great cleaning power

Persil have created non bio versions of all their best selling detergents, such as Dual Action Capsules and small & mighty, which offer effective cleaning, even without the enzymes that a biological detergent contains which may cause irritation in babies and those with sensitive skin.

Persil non bio products can help to tackle stains, so there’s no need to worry next time your baby spews their dinner back up!

  • Non Bio is free from common allergens

The primary difference between bio and non bio detergents is that the non bio varieties are free from enzymes which are common allergens and could trigger reactions in babies and in adults with sensitive skin. The lighter fragrance of Persil Small & Mighty Non Bio is also designed to be kind on delicate skin.

Persil’s skincare research has won a stamp of approval from the British Skin Foundation, so you can be assured that using Persil Non Bio, with the extra help of Comfort Pure fabric conditioner (which also has been endorsed by the British Skin Foundation), will give you clean, fresh results that are gentle on sensitive skin. Persil also recommends washing new baby clothes in a non bio detergent before wear to remove any toxins that may be present from the manufacturing process.

  • Non Bio detergents are effective even at 30 degrees

Biological detergents are popular with many families as the enzymes mean that stain removal is possible even at lower temperatures, and in quick washes, helping them to meet their ‘green’ targets. However, if your baby has sensitive skin, it may be a good idea to try a non-bio detergent that is gentle on sensitive skin.

Although these do not contain enzymes, they’re still great for all-round cleaning and removing any germs, or bacteria that could pose a risk to a baby’s health. For particularly stubborn stains you may need to wash at a higher temperature when using a non bio detergent, or consider using a pre-treatment before laundering.  


Bio or Non Bio for Baby Clothes?

If your baby has sensitive skin, then non-bio detergents are a good choice. Persil’s non biological detergents offer the perfect compromise for parents of brilliant cleaning and a mild, gentle formula that is good for sensitive skin.

By making the switch to non bio, you may even notice some benefits for yourself, especially if you also suffer with sensitive skin, or notice increased irritations during extreme weather conditions, for example. Try it and see how non bio could benefit you and your family.
