The ones that I found to give us the least rash were Ombrelle and Presun for sensitive skin. Still not suitable for us but I know other allergy sufferers who use these with good results. I'm going to try Neutrogena as my last attempt I've heard that one talked about also.

Well, naturally I wasn't in when they called and "Jackie" left me a voice mail saying there aren't any nut ingredients in the Banana Boat Baby products. She didn't even leave a number where I could call her back and ask about specific ingredients. I'm not happy.

Untill this summer my gaughter was able to use Coppertone, this year however it made her arms break out and scab over.
Ombrelle has been good, and just recently I found "Baby Faces" that states it has "no nut extracts", so far so good. We are Canadian so I'm not sure if you will find this in the U.S. Good Luck [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img]

Ombrelle for kid's specifically says on the label on the box, contains no nut products. I love this for the kids. They never get burnt and you don't have that awful oily smell. Fortunately I haven't had to deal with excema so I'm not sure if it is good or not for that skin type.
I'm also in Canada so I'm not sure if the ingredients would change in the States.

I am in the US and don't recall ever seeing Ombrelle. Does anyone know where I can find it? Thanks.

I called Banana Boat Products last month and got the same run around as Heather. When they did finally call me back, I of course wasn't home either, but they left me a message that said they DO USE ALMOND OIL in some of their products. The company wants you to be very specific when questioning their products, but I just said that I had "some" Banana Boat products and needed to know if there were any peanut or tree nut products in them. So when they replied, they did not specify which products actually have the oil in them. I'm not taking any chances of cross contamination and will not use any of their products.

Here's the e-mail I got back from L'Oreal:
