coconut-allergiesI recently discovered that I am allergic to products containing coconuts. I’m actually pretty sure that this is the cause since I break out on my face when using the products and don’t when I discontinue them.

Am I crazy or does coconut really cause allergies?

Best Answer:

Searching for soaps and other products which are free from coconut ingredients can be a challenging task. You are certainly not crazy; there are many personal care products out there which contain coconut products and you can’t always tell just be reading the label.

Here is just a partial list of potential coconut derived additives and ingredients:

  • 1,2 Octanediol
  • 2 Phenoxyethanol
  • Ammonium Lauryl Sulphate
  • Capryl Glycol
  • Caprylic Acid
  • Caprylic Glycol
  • Caprylic/Capric
  • Caprylyl Glycol
  • Ceteareth-20
  • Cetearyl Alcohol
  • Cetearyl Glucoside
  • Ceteth-20 Phosphate
  • Cetyl Alcohol
  • Cetyl Esters
  • Cocamide MEA
  • Cocamidopropyl Betaine
  • Cococaprylate/Caprate
  • Cocomide DEA
  • Coconut Oil
  • Disodium Cocamphodiprop
  • Emusifying Wax
  • Glyceryl Caprylate
  • Hexyl Laurate
  • Isopropyl Myristate
  • Laureth-3
  • Olefin Sulfonate
  • Organic Sodium Cocoate
  • Phenoxyethanol
  • Polysorbate 20
  • Sodium Cocoate
  • Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate
  • Sucrose Stearate
  • Sodium Laureth Sulfate
  • Sodium Lauroyl Sarcosinat
  • Sodium Lauryl Sulfate
  • Sodium Stearate
  • Sorbitan Stearate
  • Stearyl Alcohol
  • Vegetable Cetearyl Glucos
  • Vegetable Glycerine

Luckily, there are more and more manufacturers making hypoallergenic personal care products that do not contain coconut based ingredients such as Kiss My Face and others.

We have found that people who have coconut allergies to skin care products normally do not have an allergic reaction to coconut in their diets and believe this is due to the manufacturing process for coconut-based ingredients.

    I found out about 6-7 years ago I was allergic to coconut when I ate coconut shrimp one might and broke out in hives. It wasn’t until just this year that I started breaking out in each and hives randomly without eating coconut. I discovered that every single product I used contained a form of coconut. It too key a while but I was able to find everything without coconut. Cocamidopropyl Betaine, I have read, is an artificial form and is hypoallergenic. I have been using that, it seems to be ok now.
