Food Allergy Friendly Shampoo and Conditioner

It's always dumbfounding to me how hard it is to find a new shampoo that does not contain my son's allergens-to-avoid and a long list of unidentifiable chemicals that could aggravate his eczema. The National Eczema Association has a "Seal of Acceptance" program for products that are particularly good for individuals with eczema. They do not provide information on food allergens in the products but do provide helpful links to each manufacturer's website where you can do your own research.

I've bookmarked the personal products directory to do my own exploring. If you manage eczema and food allergies too, take a look! You may find your new favorite shampoo or other personal care product.

Do you take matters into your own hands and make your own bath soap or shampoo? I'd love to hear more about it! I think it's an intriguing and very tempting idea, but it sounds daunting. Is it as difficult as it sounds?

I personally find the Eczema assoc a waste of time! Unless a company pays money to them you wont find their products recommended.

We use Natural Instinct Shampoo & Conditioner, No Parabens, Petro Chemicals etc
