Will almond oil in soap aggravate nut allergies?

Can people with nut allergies use soaps with almond oil in them?

Hmm… depends. If the almond oil is saponified (turned into soap) then it is probably ok. If it is superfatted (added to the batch later) probably not.

Best thing to do is to experiment on a small spot on your inner arm above the elbow. Dampen the area and rub in a little soap. Leave it for an hour. If there is a raised welt of any kind or irritation soothe with Green Gold or organic olive oil.

All the Best!
