If he's got allergies, do a small skin test before he's putting TTO all over his body on his clothing. It can be an allergen.
I've had issues with laundry detergents in the past, have found that Seventh Generation is safe enough. You can also go the baking soda route for washing.
Figuring out what his allergens are is the most logical first step for then choosing what soaps to use. Then you know what to avoid. Common allergens that I know to look for in soaps are lanolin (any part), fragrance (most inexpensive perfumes contain Orris Root, a common allergen. Common soaps aren't going to be using noncheap...).
Read labels and go for unscented (which are "masking scented" just enough to not be obnoxiously chemical smelling).
