I am so confused about certain ingredients that sound like peanut derivatives... when I look them up, there is no mention of peanuts. For example, arachidyl propionate, is an inactive ingredient in Chapstick. I have heard others say they do not use it for this reason. Last night I decided to throw out our kids Chapstick... but then I forgot. First thing this morning, my daughter informs me that she put it on (they have only used it once before this). I freaked out and gave her a bath and then came and looked up the ingredient online:

Arachidyl Propionate - A skin softener and humectant obtained from coal and limestone.

No mention of peanuts. There is a similar sounding ingredient in an Aveeno facial moisturizer, but someone has told me it's not peanuts. When I called the company, the CS Rep. said she found no mention of peanuts in her ingredients list... what's the deal?

I called FAAN and their person researched it and said it is from something that *can* be made from peanuts and from other things. It may or may not have peanuts and sounds highly processed so I doubt it would cause a problem but DS isn't going to be using it. We use vaseline instead.
