No problem. Smile

For the longest time I thought I was just sensitive to sodium lauryl sulfate and I thought it was only used in dish soap. Ahh, the innocent days, lol. Angel Looking back now it all clicks into place and makes sense. Do you know there's coconut oil in Cool Whip? So many people rave about how wonderful it is and I've always hated it, that makes sense to me now too.

Trying to change my diet and products for the corn allergy means that I've gone pretty organic. In a way the corn allergy makes it easier to avoid coconut ingredients because I was avoiding the "hidden" ones anyway. I think I would have unknowingly suffered with the allergy my whole life if I hadn't stumbled across it due to my daughter's corn allergy.

The only blog I've found devoted solely to coconut allergy:
