pablondie--I want to say there has been a post in the last few months on this.
When you say peanut and tree nut free--do you mean free of peanut and tree nut oils, or not made in a facility with, etc.?
I personally treat skin care products the same as food products. I read the labels, I call companies, and I research ingredients.
I would stick to brands that have minimal ingredients.

Contacted the FDA when I came across a product (cannot remember the name)that was advertised in a newspaper and it contained nuts of various sorts. The FDA person informed me that there was nothing they could do. She was extremely annoyed at my questions and I am convinced it is because she had little if any information on cosmetic products and nut allergy reactions. Play it safe and contact the company directly. Most companies are very helpful and will inform you of the presence of anything they consider to be allergy causing.

I think www.upurea.com may sell some cosmetics that are nut free. I think I recall seeing nut-free symbols. Also vegan symbols. Might be worth a peek!

Hi PABlondie!
It'd been a while since I checked upurea.com. Just did a quick look now. Clicked on the nut-free symbol and did not see nut oils in those products. Did you click on the nut-free symbol, left sidebar on home page?

Hmm. That's odd. I checked again, and it took me a while, but I just found one with sweet almond oil. That is NOT nut-free! You are 100% right, PABlondie! I shudder to think what would happen if a person highly allergic to almonds used that product!!! YIPES!
Someone should email Upurea because that makes no sense. Actually, I'll email them too. In fact, this might be good to highlight on Food Allergy Buzz...
Good catch, PABlondie. I hadn't stumbled upon a product with nut oil yet. I had seen some with coconut but that doesn't count.
Well, scratch Upurea off the list for nut-free cosmetics. We obviously can't trust anything there with that kind of error.
