Allergic to Coconut - Can You Recommend Products?
thank you for posting such a wonderful website. I have many sensitivities and allergies to nuts, fruit, and even some vegetables. I am mostly allergic to coconut which I find is in almost everything. Is there a product you can recommend for me? I am most concerned with coconut but really want to use something that's good for me skin but mainly very basic :)
Hi Tessa, thanks for your message, and I'm so glad you find our site helpful! Yes, I really empathize with the difficulty of finding simple skincare and haircare products that will not cause allergic reactions.
When you're very sensitive, any one ingredient in a product can be the cause of a skin inflammation. For that reason it is helpful to choose simple products that have a short list of ingredients.
Another thing that can be very allergy producing are so many plant materials, and so it can be quite a challenge finding products that do not have so many botanical ingredients.
I recommend that you try out the Cleure hypoallergenic products
to see if any of these may work for you.
Read the labels to be sure there is no coconut oil in any of the products I'm pretty sure they don't use coconut oil, but I haven't checked recently. You may even want to try some of their sample sizes
to see which products may work for you. Their products contain no plant allergens and even work for people who are allergic to gluten or salicylates.
The creator of this product line is quite gifted in being able to put together products that work exceptionally well, without a long list of ingredients. Their hypoallergenic shampoo
is the best I have ever tried, and is even better now. Some of their products contain shea butter which is very mild.
I hope these are helpful for you Tessa!
