Notre; This thread is in reply to a post that was deleted by the office at posters request.
Here is the original topic >safe PA and nut-allergic makeup(for girls

Have you investigated the Body Shop products? So much of their stuff contains nut oil, but, they provide a list of ingredients for all their products upon request. The big problem with cosmetics is that ingredients are almost never labelled.

I realize this isn't kid makeup but maybe a "safe" tube of lipstick from them would satisfy your daughter's craving to be like Mommy.

I have the allergy myself, since I was 1 1/2 (I'm almost 29 now). Had to be really careful about makeup when I was little. Have you heard of Tinkerbell products? Of course, this was a LONG time ago and I don't even know if they still make Tinkerbell, but I think they do. Check with them. When I am out this week, I will check around and see what I can find for you and re-post around Wednesday. Take care and hope you have a great holiday season!

Have you tried children's craft books? There are so many clever ones out there these days I bet you could find a recipe to make some simple homemade make-up. I wish I could point you to one, but I can't, but I'm almost positive I've seen them before.

Mix a little bit of vaseline with your favorite flavor of Pixie-Stix to make kids lip gloss.

This is one area re PA that I'm very dazed and confused about and I think it's mostly because a lot of the toiletries/cosmetics don't seem to have any labeling at all. I find it difficult enough having to read every label of every food item I'm buying.
Then, after finding the thread about Unusual Sources or Unexpected Places, I recognized the very real need to also read the labels of the toiletries and cosmetics I buy. And, I find very few that are labeled.
I find it both frustrating and worrisome. What if someone kisses your child that is using the lip liner with the peanut oil in it? What if?
I'm fortunate that I don't use cosmetics per se. I do, however, use standard toiletries like shampoo, conditioner, and moisturizer.
I'm even having difficulty finding them labeled.
What I would do, is either let your daughter play with your make-up after checking with their manufacturer (a lot of this can be done nowadays via e-mail) or check out a line of kid's cosmetics wherever you would purchase them. Then, contact the manufacturer and see if they are "safe" for your daughter or not.
I'm glad that I have the information I have about cosmetics/toiletries, etc., but I'm also getting overwhelmed and terribly frustrated because of it all.
I hope you're able to find something "safe" for your daughter, and actually, yourself.
Season's Greetings and best wishes! [img][/img]
