pI inquired about the products and was told that some "contain very, very small amounts of nut oils". I emailed them to find out about certain products and are waiting to hear back from them. Their products include Edge Shaving Cream, Skintimate, Glade, Windex, Pledge, Raid, and others./p

Good Lord, are these companies ever going to label these things properly? The info. is out there and I await the day when these companies take their responsibility seriously and take major allergens out of their products... or for God's sake - PUT IT ON THE LABEL!!!!!!! Please let us know what you find out about these products.

When will these companies get it????? The company replied back to me and said I needed to be more specific in which products I use, for example which Edge does my husband use. ARGGH!!! They should just be able to tell me which ones have the nut oils. I will buy as little products as possible from them in the future. I will pass on the information when I hear.

I know. These companies are absurd in their ignorance. There may be a single department that answers within each individual brand. Try asking about one brand per e-mail/phone call. They will get annoyed, but they will forward them to the appropriate departments (or at least that strategy worked with ConAgra). I'm dying to know the answers myself. I have many of their products in my home, too. Eek!

I just tried to inquire about Off Skintastic and they won't tell me if there are any peanut or tree nut oils in it. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/mad.gif[/img]
I called Avon and they are sending me a list of the ingredients in Skin So Soft Bug Guard Plus.

They won't answer me about any brand but Skintimate, & they listed a seed, not a nut ingredient. Totally ignorant on the issue.

I just called Cutter about their All Family and they told me no peanut or tree nut oil. Nevertheless, I requested an MSDS (materials safety data sheet) on it.
Avon is still checking for me.

Heather,
How do request a material safety data sheet? I still have not heard back from this company and it irritates me. I'm ready to boycott their products. Thanks.

I just called the 800 number and one of the selections was "to order an MSDS, press 3" (or whatever the number was). So I did and just left my name and address on the voice mail. Here's the web address, I must have found the 800 number there
[url="http://www.cutterinsectrepellent.com"]www.cutterinsectrepellent.com[/url]
Oh yeah, (I'm editing now)...here's the number 800.332.5553

I got a response back, and so far this is the information I have been told.
ALL Edge Progel and ALL Skintimate Shave Gel are formulated to contain Sunflower oil Monoglycerides which she said is derived from a nut. Glade Potpourri Spray is formulated to contain a trace amount of nut derivatives, except for Lilac Springs.
The following products of theirs do not contain nuts: Skintimate Moisturizing Exfoliating Shave Cream Sensitive Skin, Vanish Brush Free, Pledge Lemon Aerosol,
New More Powerful Srubbing Bubbles and Windex Blue.
She also said that things are periodically reformulated so even though they are safe not doesn't mean they will be at a later date.
Does anyone know of a shaving cream for men that is safe? Just curious.

RE: shaving cream
Although my husband is not allergic to peanuts or nuts he sometimes shaves with Noxzema.
He says that it clogs up his blades a lot but it feels good when he shaves.

Hi,
I am PN/TN allergic and I've been using "Edge ProGel Normal" for several years with no ill effects. I've got the can in front of me right now but there are no specific "ingrediants" listed at all.
If it makes a difference, I bought the product in Canada. The # on the bottom of the can is:
T140 02004
0610 65
I may not be as sensitive as others to PN/TN but I have not had any problems.
Cheers,
J.J.
(Who doesn't really want to go to an electric shaver)

i cant use shave creams/gels or most razors cuz of the whole soy vitamin e thing, but ive found they still produce classic bics (no moisturizer strip) and hair conditioner makes a decent shave cream.

Thaks to Mom2Nickie for re-raising. I will contact various companies, hopefully this week, and will post any replies I get. Which is the best forum to post under - I find this topic difficult to narrow down and seem to have posted in two other forums [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/confused.gif[/img]
