ISSUE: Question About Ingredients

December 7, 2010 at 9:15 am | Product Ingredients | No comment

Dear Philip,

Why on earth would you use Peanut Oil as an ingredient in your products? Now I understand that there are millions of allergies to millions of things (there are people who are allergic to cold water. Yes. Look it up if you don’t believe me), and they have to make the choice of what they buy and use and it’s their responsibility. But seeing as peanut allergies are practically an epidemic these days, I’m just curious about who made the choice that it would be a good idea to put this in your product?

I think the LEAST thing you could do would be to BOLD the font on the word “PEANUT” in the ingredients list. Not everyone is as careful as me.

My entire line is based on healing essential oils from fruits, nuts and plants, and the reason that I use peanut oil in some of our products is because it’s wonderful for moisturizing. It also works beautifully in synergy with other botanical oils like almond, walnut, sesame, olive and jojoba. That said, the percentage of peanut oil I use is very low, and I’ve never heard a report of anyone having a bad reaction to it. But I’ll keep your concerns and thoughtful suggestions in mind. Thanks for writing.
