When formulating our recipes, we avoid the use of Shea Butter or Coconut Oil because many people with tree-nut allergies may have a reaction to them. We use family, friends and co-workers as our product testers (some of whom do have tree-nut & other types of allergies). To date, none of them have had an allergic reaction to our products.
That being said, NO natural ingredient based skincare product is truly Hypoallergenic. Just because a particular ingredient is not derived from tree-nuts, does not necessarily mean that it wasn't produced in the same area that tree-nut products were produced. Every person is different and every person's allergies are different. We STRONGLY recommend that you perform a patch test before using ANY new skincare product for the first time. If you experience itching, redness or any other sort of negative reaction - DO NOT USE IT!
