Is fluorescent agents safe? What is fluorescent?

Fluorescent agents, also known as optical brighteners or optical brightening agents, are added to laundry detergents to enhance the appearance of fabrics. These agents work by absorbing ultraviolet light from the environment and re-emitting it as visible blue light. This blue light helps to mask the yellowing or dullness of fabrics, making them appear brighter and whiter to the human eye.

 
However, this optical effect does not indicate that the clothes are thoroughly clean. True cleanliness involves the removal of dirt, stains, and microorganisms. Therefore, while clothes may appear visually clean after washing with a detergent containing fluorescent agents, it does not guarantee that they are entirely free from contaminants.

 

Scientific studies highlight the potential for skin sensitivities or allergic reactions to the chemical components of fluorescent brighteners. The occurrence of such reactions is contingent on individual susceptibility and the specific molecular interactions at the skin interface.


Our laundry detergent product refrains from using fluorescent agents to mitigate health risks and prioritize delivering genuine cleanliness to consumers, rather than merely creating a visual illusion of cleanliness. Fluorescent agents, while effective at enhancing the appearance of fabrics, raise concerns regarding potential health hazards associated with prolonged exposure. By opting out of using these agents, we ensure that our product aligns with stringent health and safety standards, providing peace of mind to consumers. Moreover, our commitment to genuine cleanliness means that our detergent focuses on effectively removing dirt, stains, and microorganisms, thus offering a superior cleaning experience that goes beyond superficial visual effects.
