Coconut free lotion!

THIS.  Coconut free lotion is what fills my inbox almost daily with emails begging for ideas, help. . . asking what to use for certain conditions, multiple allergies, on babies, on scent sensitive kids, and the list goes on.

I usually suggest coconut free lotion-type things found at the drug store that are almost straight off the periodic table:

Mineral Oil (Baby Oil is just a scented version of this) 
Petroleum Jelly (Vaseline)
Vitamin E
Lanolin (like in breast feeding ointments)
Aquaphor (a mix of several of these elemental ingredients- one of my most used lotions)


Despite being able to use these generic ingredients, I miss "real" lotion.  But, there is a new one that just came out from Pectolite called none other than "Coconut and Palm Oil Free Body Lotion".  


Pectolite sent it to me to try out and I've been using it for a couple of weeks once the cold chapped air finally got to me and I'm happy to report it is really good stuff.  

It has some really creative (and coconut-free) ingredients: 
Water (Aqua), Cupuacu (Theobroma Grandiflorum) Butter, Safflower (Carthamus Tinctorius ) Seed Oil, Rice (Oryza Sativa) Bran Oil, Jojoba (Simmondsia Chinensis) Seed Oil, Hydroxystearyl Alcohol and Hydroxystearyl Glucoside, Hydrogenated Olive Oil (and) Olive Oil (Olea Europaea) (and) Olive Oil Unsaponifiables, Kokum (Garcinia Indica) Butter, Camellia (Camellia Oleifera) Seed Oil, Avocado (Persea Gratissima) Oil , Xanthan Gum, Lactobacillis Ferment, Gluconodeltalactone (and) Sodium Benzoate, Fragrance and/or Essential Oil(s)


The lotion absorbs well, isn't greasy at all, and is long lasting.  Some of you with bad reactions to petroleum products might especially enjoy it.  My lotion was completely unscented and it just smelled faintly of olive oil.  You can order it in several scents that their coconut free soaps also come in.  I did have to shake it up after it sat for awhile since I didn't use a pump and it has a tendency to separate a little bit.  I didn't use it on my face, but it moisturized and was very healing on my hands, legs, and even feet! My skin seemed rejuvinated and it never made me itchy or red!  

If you want to try it, go to Pectolite.net (not .com)

Happy Winter!

Thought would be great- until i got to near the end of the fermented lactobacciculus. that would probably do me in. besides coconut allergy, i appear to have a bonafide allerge to milk and i've noticed in past have had troulbe particularly with lactobaccilus (in e.g. probiotics, fermented cabbage, and toothpaste, sourdough bread). sigh. its just hopless...Want a cream to wear under face powder -oh and no aloe either!!

I bought a couple bottles and was not overly impressed. It's expensive, has expensive shipping, smells like plastic (I got the unscented clarion and matcha pear), and didn't moisturize well. On top of that, I wound up breaking out from it anyway. Looked up more info about the ingredients and I guess kokum butter is considered to be in the nut family, so that's a no go for someone like me who also has tree nut allergies.

You listed Aquaphor as a coconut free lotion. It has glycerin, which comes from coconut.
Also, petrolatum is NOT that good for us. It's made from crude oil. It's rated a 5 on the Think Dirty App.

Not all glycerin is made from coconuts. Unfortunately, you can't always figure out what their glycerin is derived from, but I have done okay spot testing products with glycerin.

Here is another coconut free lotion. It contains no chemicals, surfuctants or harmful preservatives: http://naturallyfreeinc.com/products/hair--body-moisturizer-souffle--1515916775547x741844434058293800

Ceela Naturals have lotion, face cream, face wash and body wash that are top allergen and coconut free. They are pricey, but worth it to have nicer coconut free eye cream and such. Wish they would come out with a shampoo!

Kiss Freely also has a body butter that is free from the top 8 plus coconut, beeswax, sesame, shea butter, sunflower, and peas. Once again, pricey at $19.99 for a little tub, but the only thing that helps the eczema on my hands!

Hi, Aquaphorhas has coconut. The glycerine they use is a derivitive if coconut. My daughter is highly allergic to coconut and I check every ingrediant.

Baby Allergies and Conditions

KyleeG said...

Hello! My 7 month old son has a severe allergy to coconut! Thank you for this blog. I never realized that coconut is on everything!! Its hidden in so many different variations/ingredients. I am using the clean kids naturally shampoo, conditioner, and lotion for him (its being delivered in a few days) I also found pure olive oil soap on Amazon and am using raw shea butter. Now searching for wet wipes! Is there a certain laundry detergent that is best for coconut allergy? Our allergy dr. Was useless. He didnt even think he was allergic!! But he has had hives everytime coconut has been on his skin! And has had extremely terrible eczema that has never fully cleared and he constantly itches.

I'm here to testify about what Dr. James did for me. I have been suffering from (GENITAL HERPES VIRUS) disease for the past 4 years and had constant pain and inching, especially in my private part. During the first year. This disease started circulating all over my body and  I have used Oregano oil, Coconut oil, Acyclovir, Val acyclovir, Acyclovir, and some other products and it really helped during my outbreaks but I totally got cured! From my HSV with a strong and active herbal medicine ordered from  Dr. James herbal mix and it completely fought the virus from my nervous system, and I was tested negative after 15 days of using  Dr. James herbal mix medicine. I'm here to let you all know that the herpes virus has a complete cure, I got rid of mine with the help of Dr. James herbal medicine.  I came across a testimony of Tasha, on the internet testifying about Dr. James, on how he cured Her of 7 years HSV 2. And she also gave the email address of  the great Dr. James  (GREATCUREMAN@GMAIL.COM...]..., advising anybody to contact him for help on any kind of diseases that he would be of help with, so I emailed him telling him about me (HSV 2) he told me not to worry that I'm going to be cured!! Well, I never doubted him. I have faith he can cure me too, Dr. James prepared and sent me his herbal mix medicine made of roots and herbs which I took. In the first one week, I started experiencing changes all over me, after 15 days I drank his herbal mix medicine, I was totally cured. No more inching, pain on me anymore as Dr. James assured me. After some time I went to my doctor to do another test. The result came out negative. So friends my advice is if you have such disease or know anyone who suffers from it or any other disease like Alzheimer's Disease, Warts, Moles, Bipolar disorder, Shingles,  HPV, HPV, HIV/AIDS, ALS, HBP, CANCER, NEPHROTIC SYNDROME HIV / AIDS, herpes cancer, Ovarian Cancer, Pancreatic cancers, bladder cancer, bladder cancer, prostate cancer, Glaucoma., Cataracts, Macular degeneration, Cardiovascular disease, Autism, Lung disease. Enlarged prostate, Osteoporosis. Alzheimer's disease, psoriasis, Tach Diseases, Lupus, Backache, dementia. Kidney cancer, lung cancer, skin cancer, skin cancer and skin cancer. Testicular Cancer, LEUKEMIA, VIRUSES, HEPATITIS, INFERTILITY., etc. you can contact  the great  one  directly on his.... [greatcureman@gmail.com].....INFO@drjamesherbalmix@gmail.com  He is a good man, and He will help you
