I’ve used Cetaphil face wash since I was a teenager. It’s over-the-counter, cheaper than the department store cleansers, and is whole-heartedly endorsed by most dermatologists. It’s especially wonderful for those with sensitive skin.
Often, those with food allergies are predisposed to eczema and/or very sensitive skin which would make Cetaphil products (face wash, moisturizers, body wash) a perfect product for them…EXCEPT…some Cetaphil products now contain macadamia nut oils and/or almond oils.
Specifically, the following three products contain tree nut oils:
- DailyAdvance Ultra Hydrating Lotion (Macadamia Nut Oil)
- DailyAdvance Ultra Hydrating Lotion (Sweet Almond Oil)
- Moisturizing Lotion (Macadamia Nut Oil)
Even if your child does not use the above products, it should serve as a reminder to parents to check ingredient labels on products they use every day. Fortunately for me, the Cetaphil cleanser I use does not contain tree nut oils, so I am still able to use it. But I won’t be buying any Cetaphil moisturizers or lotions.
What are some unsuspecting products you have found peanut/nut contamination in?
