Are Handcrafted Soaps SAFE for Kids with NUT ALLERGIES?

23 Apr

This is one of those questions that I get asked every now and then.

And thought maybe there are others out there with the same question.

 NUT ALLERGIES?

The simple fact is,  someone that has a

*NUT ALLERGY*

should probably NOT be using a bar of soap that is made  (for example with) Sweet ALMOND oil.

Here is a Quick reference to common tree nut names   it’s from the Kids with Food Allergies.org

If there is ANY doubt ask your Physician.

I know many soap-makers (me included) use lots of nut oils in our soap-making ventures.

For example here are some of the Nut Oils I use (that a person with NUT ALLERGIES shouldn’t be using):

Sweet Almond Oil

Hazelnut Oil

Shea Butter

Coconut Oil

Hope that little bit of information helps. Remember if there is ANY DOUBT ASK your DOCTOR!

    Never even thought of that! My first reaction is the handmade soaps are better because there isn’t any junk but never thought about nut allergies.

      Either did I until people with Nut Allergies would ask about the oils used in the soap…Learn something new everyday!

    So glad you said something! Nut allergies never crossed my mind. I’m guessing if a person is super allergic, he/she shouldn’t even use nut-free soaps if it were made in the same mold as other nut-based soaps =( Poor folks!
