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.

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.
(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]
