Hi it's me again w/ the shea butter problem. While I was at my daughter's allergist, she gave me the vanicream cleansing bar to use on my daughter, but I am hesitant on using it being that she still has some hives on her body. Has anyone used these products before?

I haven't used the cleansing bar, but I have used the Vanicream lotion. I think it is a good option to try.
Another gentle alternative is Cetaphil liquid cleanser. It has no nut oils in it.

We just tried this week (allergist gave us) samples of the skin cream. Haven't tried the soap yet- no problems with DD (she's PA/TNA) but of course every child can be different- and there are other ingredients in cream that I suppose someone could react to. I did contact the company last week and the lady who emailed me said they don't use any nut derivatives- but do use coconut- and referred me to their website for complete ingredient listings for their products (NOTE: as ingredients change frequently anyone reading this should verify for themselves in case their formulations were to change)
We were also told about Cetaphil- but the one kind does have macadamia nut oil in it -so for now I didn't really want to use any of their products (possible cross contamination?) since DD is also TNA.
Just my opinion-no medical advice given/intended.

We use vanicream (all products), californiababy all products and gluten free savonierre (spelling?)which is sold on missroben.com. I also supply our school with sunandearth handwashing soap or free and clear soap which is sold on vanicream website.
We are a mfa allergic family and have had no problems (knock on wood) to any of the products.

Thanks.
They only deliver to the USA and I am in Canada.
Since I will be in NY stste in a couple of weeks, I have asked a pharmacy to order the Vanicream soap and cream for me.
It has really helped my DD skin.
Thanks again.
