Looking For Allergy Free Shampoos And Conditioner For My Daughter.

Looking For Allergy Free Shampoos And Conditioner For My Daughter.

She's allergic to all nuts and coconuts, sesame seeds, eggs and dairy. She's also sensitive to soy and wheat. I would also love suggestions of things to stay away from. Items that looked good, but didn't work for you for some reason. Thank you

I use Free & Clear branded shampoo. It's made by Pharmaceutical Specialties. I use their shampoo and their lotion and their body oil. The branded lotion is called Vanicream. They have a thick lotion and a thin lotion. I can't use their deodorant due to castor oil. Ask the doctor about coco-glucoside. Not sure if that's related to coconut. I have a skin reaction to coconut and I haven't had an issue with this yet. I will be getting skin testing next year.

This is the ingredient list: "purified water, lauryl glucoside, coco-glucoside, acrylates copolymer, disodium cocoyl glutamate, sodium cocoyl glycinate, glycerin, sucrose cocoate, panthenol, pentylene glycol, 1,2-hexanediol, sodium cocoyl glutamate, disodium EDTA, caprylyl glycol, sodium hydroxide, sodium chloride"

Wheat is going to be your biggest challenge with shampoos and conditioners. A lot of them contain hidden wheat. I don't know which ones don't contain wheat. You may have to call the actual manufacturers, tell them your allergies, and then have them tell you if their products contain your allergens. This is going to be a lot of work. Sorry.

My nephew has nuts, tree nuts (coconuts), sesame seeds, and CORN. Nuts and seeds are very similar. I would avoid corn products, poppy seeds things like that. Also many products are called by names other than their actual name. So look up all her allergies and find out what else they are called so if you see them on ingredient labels you can avoid them.
