Re: Fabric Softeners and Acne
I think acne causes are different for different people. I do believe that chemicals used to dye and scent laundry detergent (that are subsequently deposited and somewhat linger on fabric) can irritate sensitive skin, and if you're acne prone, irritated skin means more acne.
In terms of fabric softener, even if a person is not sensitive to fragrances, fabric softeners contain oil soluble ingredients...so as not to rinse off, and to coat the fabric, ensuring softness and protection from static electricity, and provide lasting scent. Those ingredients are considered potential pore cloggers. Tha's why I've stopped using fabric softener.
