Check Your Cosmetics and Personal Care Items for Food Allergens

March 2006

Have you read the ingredient label for that bottle of shampoo? How about that diaper cream? Ingredients derived from food allergens are frequently added to creams, cosmetics, hair care products, and other personal care items. Be sure to read the labels and check for the presence of your child's allergens.

Refer to KFA's Allergen Avoidance Lists for hidden names of food allergens.
