No matter how many times I ask about the ingredients in beauty products to see if they contain food allergens such as eggs, milk, soy, wheat, almonds and nuts, people look at me like I might be a bit of a nut; People aren’t eating moisturizers or scrubs are they? But because I’ve always believed it’s better to be safe than sorry, I continue to ask especially at hotels and public places before using their bathroom soaps.
Depending on how allergic you are, you can definitely have an anaphylaxis allergic reaction from inhaling the scent of your almond oil or scrub, or from any contact with your skin. Also watch out for shampoos that also contain eggs and or milk, which showing up more and more at mass merchandisers and chain retail stores.
So don’t be ashamed to ask.
Just when I thought I knew about all the shampoos that contained almonds and milk I found ine that also contains eggs. Sold almost everywhere including CVS and Walmart.
Organix Nourishing Coconut Milk Shampoo. It is a combination of organic coconut milk and ultra whipped egg white proteins with weightless coconut oils.
Bottom line: You should avoid all products—topical and otherwise—containing any of the allergy foods you, your kids, or anyone you care for, is allergic to and always carry the Epipen ON you at all times. Have immediate access to your emergency auto injectors in case of accidental exposure to allergens that can trigger an anaphylaxis allergic reaction. There are many Epipen cases, holders and carriers that you can find in the internet in specialty online stores.
