Is jojoba oil safe to use if you have a nut allergy?
Does anybody use this stuff for skin care who have nut allergy?

Thanks in advance for your responses.

Per wikipedia: "Jojoba oil (pronounced "ho-HO-bah") is the liquid wax produced in the seed of the jojoba (Simmondsia chinensis) plant, a shrub native to southern Arizona, southern California and northwestern Mexico. The oil makes up approximately 50% of the jojoba seed by weight"

and see this post

Hope that helps! Seems like one could have a reaction-but it is rare.

Jojoba oil is meant to be really good for the skin, and can be added to moisturizers for better effect - in answer to person above.

I don't believe the person above is wanting to know about jojoba oil. It looks like spam to me. Anyway my dd is PA/TNA and she has not had a problem using shampoo/conditioner with jojoba oil.

Hello, I know this post is old, but I just stumbled on information about it.
This website says that people who are allergic to nuts should not be allergic because jojoba isn't closely related to nuts. I am nut allergic and have conditioner as well as mascara that contains jojoba and haven't had a problem. Be safe, always keep your epipen and benedryl near!
