Our son has a severe peanut allergy, and I am wondering what lotions, toothpastes, shampoos etc. are safe? Are there any hidden ingredients (scientific name) you have to watch out for?

Interesting question. I have avoided products that contain nut oils/extracts, but haven't ran across any that say peanut. Here is a link to other names for peanuts (this is for food)
Here's another where someone (I don't know who has made a list specifically for cosmetics)
This is not my research. I have never had an issue with dd and her products- at least not where peanuts are concerned. We are currently trying to eliminate coconut and coconut derived ingredients from her products to see if it helps her eczema. It looks like I will be making most of her products to avoid coconut.

Hi, My daughter has just been diagnosed with Walnut allergy- tree nuts. currently having to check all sortes of toiletries - have found anything moisture based needs checking - as a lot of vitamin E oil is extracted from various nuts. so moisturisers, sun creams and shampoos and conditioners def need checking. Tresemme contains hazelnut and almond extract. Toothpaste, colgate kindly emailed me back to say none of their toothpastes contain nuts. Hope this helps. Cadburys have good website for checking sweets etc. but we are sticking to twirls and buttons. as they are nut free. also with Easter on horizon - will help :-)
