I also appear to be allergic to palm derivatives. This is a HUGE problem because every freaking kind of soap/cleanser/shampoo/conditioner has SOMETHING in it made from coconut or palm, sometimes both, and usually more than one substance. This morning I woke up with a rash, severe itching, and inflammation over every part of my body that had come into contact with the bedding I had just washed that morning. And I DOUBLE RINSE every load, and it still sent me into my most severe rash yet. At least its not on my face and fortunately nowhere near as bad on my arms and lower legs because I had rubbed in some hemp oil before going to sleep. Before I knew what I was allergic to, I had discovered that hemp oil would help my mystery rash heal faster and could (when the allergy was still somewhat mild) even stop it from forming in the first place if I was fast enough to use some hemp oil when I started to get an itch. So I've been using an amla/hibiscus rinse and methi gel for conditioner and had just gotten some soapnut powder to try that as a hair wash, but the first batch I made up went off because I got sick before I could use it. So here's the deal. Apparently some people use soapnut liquid as laundry soap and body wash. I'm good with the laundry soap idea (though I'd REALLY like to hear from anyone who is using it in a washing machine for how they use it) but I'm pretty hesitant to use it as a body wash because if it burns your eyes ... What will it do to your naughty bits? I don't want to offend anyone but I'm talking about between one's legs. I've had QUITE ENOUGH inflammation and pain down there due to unsafe toilet paper and feminine products, the last bout of that took a couple of months to heal. Soapnuts can really make your eyes burn - is it safe for other tender surfaces? Even toilet paper has coconut/palm derivatives in it. The one type of TP I was sure was safe for me has been out of stock here since the pandemic started. (USA). FEMININE PRODUCTS have coconut/palm ingredients. And, it turns out, so do most laundry detergents, including All Free and Clear. Well its not free of coconut and my skin is definitely no longer clear LOL! I've been slow to actually try the soapnut hair wash because I'm afraid of irritation. I have to admit, after almost 3 years of nearly constant irritation and pain Down There before I found out what I was allergic to (or that I even HAD an allergy), I am terrified that soapnut liquid will do something just as bad, given what happens should you get it in your eyes. Please don't take this as a springboard for off-color jokes, this is really serious for me. I'm sitting here with a rash over most of my body because I got a new laundry soap that has coconut derivatives in it. Eventually I am going to have to learn to make my own soap from olive oil, but I'm pretty scared of lye and I have birds in the house (fumes from making soap with lye, even cold processed, are pretty serious) so ... I'm not looking forward to that. I can make safely MAKE the soapnut liquid, but can I safely USE it?
