Washing Powders?

I've a little bit of body acne at the minute and was wondering if this could be because of certain washing powders that you use to wash clothes with? I've heard about this before and was just wondering which ones you should aviod.

Some people have hypersensitivities or allergies to certain detergents (or more commonly, to their particular fragrance and/or dyes). Tide is especially bad for that. If you want to test, you can switch to an unscented, undyed product such as those based on baking powder. Usually powder formulas cause more irritation than liquids since powders sometimes do not fully dissolve (especially with hard water) and so do not fully rinse off the clothes either.
