My mother, 86, has developed an allergy to quaternium-15 and formaldehyde.  These ingrediance and and a long list of others are in most all cremes, lotions  and soaps.  I am trying to find a laundry detergent I can use, but I am not having any luck in getting product information.  Does anyone have a suggestion on how to get this info?

Welcome to HealingWell Ms. Sugarplum.  I am so glad Yana was able to help you out because I did not have an answer for you.  I've been using Unscented Tide, but I think I will give this a try also.  Thanks for helping out Yana. 
 
It's amazing how much we learn from each other on this forum.  Let us know how that works for your mother and feel free to visit the forum any time.
 
Take care!

There are some other unscented laundry products: Planet brand, etc. Do a search online for "unscented laundry soap" or something like that. And maybe check into soaps sold in health food stores.

Also, check out Sungold Soap (try typing into a search engine - I can't post links that sell something; also I have no financial interest in this company, I saw info about the product online when searching for something related) - it is completely unscented.

And be aware that most cotton clothes are treated with formaldehyde so all new cotton clothes should be washed before wearing.

The enzyme that breaks down aldehydes relies on molybdenum and vitamin B12 to function correctly. Make sure she is getting enough nutrition (a daily multi-vitamin is good, but won't give enough Vitamin B12 so extra sublingual Vitamin B12 in addition to the multivitamin would be a good thing to try - if her doctor is ok with it).

Good luck,

if you add 1/4 cup white distilled vinegar to the rinse cycle, that will help eliminate any soap residue left in the clothes, and you won't need any fabric softener/or those toxic fabric softener sheets which can also irritate skin and lungs.
 
edited to add..  White distilled vinegar is really cheap. Any brand will do. 
You can also use a diluted solution to wash windows, floors, clean everything in the bathroom including hard water stains, kitchen cleaning etc.
 
If you need a non toxic oven cleaning solution, let me know and i'll post it. 
 
 I have asthma, and since I've been using vinegar for my laundry I haven't had any problems with clothes making me itchy.
and when I clean.. I can actually breathe..
