Default Persil and Comfort

Evening all,

Does anyone know if Persil and Comfort exist in Spain, perhaps marketed under a different brand name, and if so, would they be the same as the UK brands?

Sensitive little 4 year old skin doesn't like anything else, so rather than packing water bottles of washing liquid and softener, thought I would see if they exist over there?

Many thanks...

The Hamiltons

I have just Googled "Persil in Spain" and it looks like "Wipp" is the equivalent. The thing to remember is that Spain is not a third world country and the Spanish people suffer the same allergies and illnesses as the Brits. I am sure that if you email the companies direct, they will be able to tell what their products are called in Spain .

I have just looked at our bottle of "Skip" which carries the same trade mark as Persil I have seen on T.V., on the reverse side it states that it is Unilever Spain, Avenida Diagonal in Barcelona, so I guess if you go into Unilever Spain then they should be able to give you the information you want.

If you "wikipedia" Persil, it gives you a great explanation.
