Looks perfectly decent to me! One can't predict what could be potentially irritating, but usually, baby products have gentle formulas.
Great! I agree with you, you can't always know what irritates them. We'll see how it goes. Thank you again :luv:

This is what I bought. There wasn't any non-bio washing powder so I hope this will be similar to the one you have. Is this ok?
I agree with RosieMaia, pigs and washing powders aren't all identical in the way they react, try it and see if it is better.
Your choice proves me slightly wrong though - for some reason, Ariel don't make any non- bio washing products. I use Persil (non-bio) but that's just a choice I inherited from my mum; Fairy also do a non-bio.
What country are you in? It seems strange to me that you can't find any non-bio products at all.

I'm from Slovenia so it's the first time I've heard about the non-bio washing products. We don't have that kind of stuff like I saw that US or maybe also UK has. I had to find some similar things to what your brands have and that's the closest I've seen :D

Ah, I thought you might be from one of the former communist countries. Can you use Amazon for shopping? They sell washing products including non-bio, though I guess shipping costs would make it quite expensive, if the Baby Ariel doesn't help.

Yes we can use Amazon, it's not a problem. But as you stated the shipping is more expensive. Ebay is better in my opinion because of the shipping. I saw that they have the non-bio products there too.

Ah, you're practically a neighbour! :)

In mainland Europe, detergents are marketed in the opposite way. I.e. unless a detergent is marked as bio, you can safely assume it's non-bio.

Yes, you're not so far away :hug:
Oh great, I didn't know that. Thank you for that information. :luv: Can't wait to see the results!

You learn something new every day! This is a very educating forum. I would have never even thought it might be the other way round (in mainland Europe), but I am glad to have found it out.

Me too. I really enjoy this forum. It's nice to get help from experienced owners so that our cute piggies can have the best life we can provide them :wub:
