The Best Salicylate-Free Cleaning Products in Australia

by | Sep 1, 2022

One of the ways I know I’m going to react to a cleaning product is if it has a strong fragrance – just getting a whiff of a cleaning spray can set off a migraine. As someone with salicylate sensitivity, I need to be mindful of what I put in my mouth and on my skin so as not to overwhelm my body with salicylates. However, it’s not just food and cosmetics that pose a problem, it can be household cleaning products too, many of which list the offending chemical in their ingredients.

Fortunately, there are a number of salicylate-free cleaning products available, the best of which I have outlined below. Hopefully the list provides a little help and assurance to those searching for cleaning product alternatives. And if you have any of your own salicylate-free recommendations, please feel free to share them below.

Note: While I’ve done my best to make sure the above products are free from salicylates, please make sure to always check the ingredients list before using as manufacturers can change their products without notice. It’s also a good idea to consult with a healthcare professional before using cleaning products to see if they’re likely to cause a reaction.
