The Top 8 Coconut Or Tree Nut Free Products For Allergy Sufferers

The Top 8 Coconut Or Tree Nut Free Products For Allergy Sufferers

Not everyone can tolerate coconut or tree nuts some of us are actually allergic and deviate from it. Being allergic to coconut is extremely rare but it can and does happen.

Tree nut allergies are on the rise and can affect those with eczema but being allergic to coconut oil does not mean you are allergic to all tree nuts.  It also doesn’t mean you cannot tolerate other tree nuts.

To the FDA coconut is a tree nut but botanically speaking, coconuts are closely related to other palms and betel nuts.  Because the FDA considers coconut a tree nut food, products that include coconut will have a label stating that they include tree nuts.

Coconut is present in many foods as a derivative like coconut oil, sugar cream milk, milk powder and water.  You will also find many coconut-derived ingredients in soaps and shampoos so become a label detective is crucial you find you suffer from skin sensitivity to coconut oil that’s also known as contact allergic dermatitis.

It’s not that easy to find hair products that don’t have coconut or a derivative of it…I mean REALLY HARD, but I have a list of the 8 products out there that are coconut or tree nut free.

Shampoos


Curly Hair Solutions Treatment Shampoo

It’s a clear fragrance-free shampoo that’s perfect for people living with Celiac Disease or multiple plant allergies. This has nothing but the good stuff which includes no peanuts or traditional tree nuts.

This shampoo does not contain coconut or coconut oil; however it does contain an ingredient, disodium cocoamphodiacetate, which is synthesized from highly refined coconut oil or highly refined palm oil. This process removes most if not all of the coconut proteins that typically produce an allergic response.

    Ack! I accidentally deleted my own comment 😛 I was trying to say, THANK YOU so much for this article!!! I have a severe peanut and tree nut allergy, and although I can use coconut containing products, I have had allergic reactions to legume and almond related foods (for example, I must steer clear of avocado). It’s sometimes frustrating to find products containing ingredients that won’t make me sick or make my skin break out in blisters. I have even ordered products online after reading the product description and ingredients thoroughly, only to receive the product and see on the package that the manufacturer put almond oil in it but the website didn’t reflect the change! Crazy! And dangerous!! So I’m always on the lookout for different products to try that are safe for me…this article brought many to my attention that I’ve not heard of. Thank you again!!

    Thank you so much for this list! I am not a WOC, but I do have coarse, dry, porous, curly hair and since becoming allergic to coconut I haven’t been able to wear my hair natural and the heat styling is ruining my hair. I am so excited to try these products!

    This article does not help. I am allergic to all nuts and I an natural. every product you have listed has sulfur in it so it would not do well in may hair. do better research.

    Thank you. I am a pale blue Scottish person who is allergic to coconut, and I struggled to find products I can use. Even online, it was not easy, until I found this site. So once again, I thank black women. The Curly Hair Solutions shampoo and conditioner are wonderful and don’t make me get a rash. Thank you thank you thank you.

    Curious how you can recommend products as coconut free when they have ingredients like Ammonium Lauryl Sulphate, Disodium Laureth Sulfosuccinate, Lauramide Dea are derived from coconut?? I have severe allergy to coconut and it is caused by using the coconut-based synthetic derivatives of coconut
    Any feedback is appreciated
