For whatever reason, a sulfate allergy is often accompanied by sensitivity or allergy to synthetically made fragrances. That means anything with a perfume can potentially cause a rash or breathing problems. Fortunately, products scented with essential oils are safe, as they derive directly from the plant they smell like and do not contain chemical additives. You don’t have to live without pretty-smelling soap, you just have to be careful that the label doesn’t list “artificial fragrance” as one of the ingredients.
