Has anybody ever seen a bar of soap advertised as "nut free" at any store? Mainly major stores, not little health food stores......And, would that change how you bought soap?

This is my unscientific survey... [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img] Im just curious of the comments and answers.

I've never seen a soap advertised as nut free...but we use method and ivory, which (to my knowlege) are nut-free.

I have not seen any health care product labeled as nut free. It certainly would make life easier, it would change my shopping habits and help at school as well!
We use Kiss My Face soaps. They are Olive Oil soaps and come in a variety of scents. All my kids like them. The trick is to use a soap dish that lets air under the bar of soap to dry or you get a very mushy messy bar. Health food stores sell this as does Shaws which is a common grocery store chain in New England.
We also use a soap I order on line that is goat milk based and made at a very small business. Fabulous scents, fun colors, also must dry with air on all sides or it becomes mush. These soaps do contain some Shea Butter (a potential problem if you have tree nut allergy) but it does not bother my daughter's skin and she is allergic to tree nuts. A few of the scents contain Almond Oil - the owner is very allergy aware and can direct you to safer choices. My kids ALWAYS ask for these soaps. The web site is: [url="http://www.goatboy.us/"]http://www.goatboy.us/[/url]
For hand soap we use Bath and Bodyworks "Just for Kids" antibacterial foaming soaps. That is a choice I made. Other parents might not be comfortable using any products from this store. We have been using these for 4 years without incident and the kids really like these. I watch for sales and stock up. These also come in very small bottles which fit in our medicine pouch traveling with us at all times so my daughter can safely wash her hands anywhere.
Since these work and the kids are happy, I do not experiment further.

I use Cetaphil Gentle Skin cleanser and bar as well....Those two do not contain any nuts or anything. I also use their lotion, but I know some on here cannot because it does contant Macadamia oil.
I was just wondering if any soap actually labeled thier product as safe....
