I founda recipe to make my own laundry detergent using this stuff but the smell and ingredients are kinda scaring me. Is it safe and natural?

Soap (sodium tallowate*, sodium cocoate* (or) sodium palmate kernelate*, and sodium palmate*), water, talc, cocnut acid*, palm acid*, tallow acid*, PEG-6 methyl ether, glycerin, sorbitol, sodium chloride, pentasodium pentetate and/or tetrasodium etidronate, titatium dioxide, fragrance, Acid Orange (CI 20170), Acid yellow 73 (ci43350)
*contains one or more of these ingredients
I had the opposite experience with it. My dd who has never broke out from anything in her life got HUGE hives from contact with it. And I too was a bit leary about how "natural" it is. We decided to go the Soap Nuts route and not only are they cost efficient but fragrance free.
I was JUST reading about people questioning if Fels Naptha is natural! http://ultimatemoneyblog.com/natural-laundry-detergents
I think I would use Dr. Bronner's or Ivory instead.
