Our whole family has food or environmental allergies and sensitive skin. Over years of trying different products for our skin and our home, these are the ones I’ve had success with and continue to use in our family.
We use Seventh Generation Free & Clear liquid dish soap, made without fragrances, dyes, phosphates, or triclosan. If the free & clear stock runs out, we’ve used the Clementine Zest & Lemongrass scent without issue too.
Buying a bulk pack of 6 makes it super affordable, especially if you put it on Amazon Subscribe & Save. It lasts us a long time, so you likely don’t need it delivered often.
We use all powder laundry detergent, Free & Clear for Sensitive Skin. I used to make my own laundry detergent, but then I had kids and I realized. For adult clothes, it was fine, but for the constant baby stains and cloth diapers, it just wasn’t cutting it anymore.
I’ve tried quite a few different laundry detergents the last five years, and this is the one I’ve settled on. It’s most affordable if you put it on Subscribe & Save, plus, it’s delivered to your door on a regular schedule that makes most sense for you.
Another soap we have on Amazon Subscribe & Save is Everyone Hand Soap. It’s so handy to have soap that doesn’t irritate our senstive skin delivered to our home.
We use the Lemon & Mandarin scent the most, but honestly, we’ve enjoyed every scent we’ve tried. We keep a small stock underneath each sink, so it’s one less thing to worry about remembering at the store.
I’ve searched for a long time to find a cleaner that was all natural, non-toxic, yet effective. Force of Nature is it!
It’s even approved to kill the COVID-19 coronavirus by the EPA, so honest, that’s what pushed me over the fence when I was debating about spending the money. I’ve used it for several months now and only wish I had found it sooner.

The EWG’s Guide to Sunscreen shows Zinc Oxide is generally safe and a 1 on the safety scale (1 is good, 10 is bad). However, Oxybenzone is an 8 due to allergens and hormone disruption, and it may be especially harmful for children. Oxybenzone is common in non-mineral sunscreens. So finding mineral sunscreens without harmful chemicals is important so it doesn’t make allergies and sensitive skin worse.
We use coconut oil for so many things in our home, including cooking, baking, homemade toothpaste, and moisturizer!
Look for organic, unrefined and cold-pressed when you order. As usual, subscribe & save on this will give you the best bang for your buck.
We’ve tried a lot of different children’s probiotics over the years. This is our favorite for the kids and I take this brand myself.
There’s one specifically for women who are pregnant/nursing and one that we’ve had good success with to support a healthy urinary tract. This one I haven’t found on Amazon though, so I order it from Vitacost instead. Basically, we’ve had good luck with every variation we’ve tried, so I’m happy to recommend this entire brand.
VACUUM WITH AIR PURIFIER
When you’re dealing with allergies and eczema, having clean air helps prevent flair ups. That’s why, I upgraded to a Shark Rotator Professional Vacuum with the Anti-Allergy Seal + HEPA Filter.
You can see it in action in my (unscripted) video below, or read the entire comparison post to see my thoughts on the Shark vs Dyson.
I like a good iRobot Roomba vacuum for wide open spaces too (worked good for a open-concept ranch with wood floors), but it doesn’t work well in our current floor plan and the filter isn’t as effective.
So if you’re looking for a vacuum that helps give your home the cleanest air, get one like this with a HEPA filter and an anti-allergy-seal.
