What is Multiple Chemical Sensitivity?

Allen's Naturally began 35 years ago when Allen's children were showing sensitivities to laundry products. Through the years Allen's Naturally became known as a go to detergent because folks were not having the same reactions as they had to mainstream laundry products containing perfumes, dyes, fragrances and other irritants.

What is MCS?

A chronic medical condition characterized by symptoms that the affected person attributes to chemical exposure.

In broad terms it means an unusually severe sensitivity or allergy-like reaction to many different kinds of pollutants including; solvents, VOC's (Volatile Organic Compounds), perfumes, petrol, diesel, smoke, "chemicals" in general and often encompasses problems with regard to pollen, house dust, mites, pet fur and dander.

Multiple Chemical Sensitivity can include symptoms of nausea, fatigue, dizziness, itching, sneezing, chest pain, breathing problems, and more. Some doctors also call MCS 'idiopathic environmental intolerance'.

At Allen's Naturally, we are proud to produce a line of detergents and cleaning products that are free of dyes, perfumes, and fragrances that actually WORK! 

Below are a few resources to find out more information on MCS. As always, please seek the advise of your physician when it comes to diagnosis or any medical conditions.
