I have read that some cosmetics and sunscreens contain sesame oil. Can anyone confirm specific names of cosmetics and sunscreen(s) containing sesame oil? I definitely want to avoid using them as my 3 year old is allergic to sesame.

I know for sure that a Mary Kay hand cream contains sesame... Mary Kay is not allergen friendly. Some products contain peanut/treent derivatives and sesame.

We use an oil-free sunscreen. My son doesn't have food allergies, but he has a skin condition that causes a break-out (looks like impetago but it's not contagious) if he uses oil products on his face. So, we bought oil-free sunscreen for him, and I switched to it.

self: allergy to sesame seeds and peanuts
3 sons each with at least one of the following allergies: peniciilin, sulfa-based antibiotic, latex, insect bites/stings

My DD has broken out in hives from a sunscreen. Figures - the ONE time I didn't call before plastering it all over her. Live and learn.

My friend has a DD with very sensative skin and was actually worried it may be an allergy. She spoke to her allergist about sunscreen and here's some general info but I think it's relative under this heading.

The Allergist recommended these ingredients for the sunscreen...
high zinc oxide or titanium dioxide content.

Some products that follow these ingredients are Neutrogena 30
sunscreen, or Coppertone 50 microionized. She said the Coppertone 50 microionized might be hard to find and I might have to order it online or something, but it's
totally the most non-allergic sunscreen on the market.

She also said that paba and the other allergic/perfume type
ingredients are being used less and less and that every summer more
and more companies are going back to the zinc oxide and titanium just start reading the ingredient lists. She said
Ombrelle is NOT a good brand for kids with allergies or sensitive
skin, despite all the good feedback it has had for children in the past

4ye old DD allergic to sesame, peanut, raw egg , and mulitple environmental & seasonal allergies
