Top Food Allergy-Friendly Skin + Hair Care Products

Food allergens are found in more than just what we eat. From argan oil shampoo to shea butter lotion, food allergens like tree nuts can sneak into everyday beauty products under names you might not recognize. Because the FDA does not regulate allergen labeling for beauty products as it does for food, cosmetic companies are not required to specifically call out food allergens in their products. Luckily there are brands that rise above industry standards. Spokin's list of top food allergy-safe hair and skin care products has you covered head to toe with options for every age and allergy. Each company offers clear ingredient lists, detailed allergen information and shows a commitment to consumers with food allergies. This product guide was published on 3/17.
