Allergic to Coconut! Help!!

I have been struggling with a coconut allergy and no longer can use products that contain coconut or chemical derived ingredients! I'm finding coconut and chemicals from coconut are in everything. Looking for recommendations of coconut free products!!!

RE: Allergic to Coconut! Help!!

Im very late to this thread but Im sensitive to coconut derivatives as well and I find I always react to products with stearic acid in them. It’s something I find often in foundations as well as skincare that just ruin me and my skin.

The majority of products do not have coconut oil.  It will be easy to find.

Re: Allergic to Coconut! Help!!

No that's not correct....take a look at all your cleansers, shampoos, soap, lotion, etc. all chemicals that start with coco or coca are from coconut, not to mention a handful of others. Here is a small list of just a few.....


Capryl Glycol
Caprylic Acid
Caprylic Glycol
Caprylic/Capric
Caprylic/Capric Triglycerides
Caprylyl Glycol
Ceteareth-20
Cetearyl Alcohol
Cetearyl Glucoside
Ceteth-20 Phosphate
Cetyl Alcohol
Cetyl Esters
Cocamide MEA
Cocamidopropyl Betaine
Cococaprylate/Caprate
Coco Glucoside
Cocomide DEA
Coconut cream
Coconut diethanolamide (CDFA)
Coconut milk

Coconut Alkanes as well. Thanks for posting this list!

Ok I know I'm a year and a half late in seeing this post but this list is sooo helpful because I just realized (after breaking out from virtually everything) that I'm allergic to coconut and its derivatives too! Totally taking a photo of this list to reference going shopping from now on!
