Soy Free Toothpaste, Sunblock, Chapstick?
« on: November 05, 2013, 10:57:35 PM »
Hi everybody,
I am new to the forum and have a couple questions.  I am allergic to soy and wish to remove all soy and potentially soy derived products (like vegetable protein, glycerine, xanthan gum, and guar gum) from my life. To that end, can anyone recommend soy-free:
   Toothpastes that have fluoride
   Chapstick type products
   Sunblocks

Thank you all!
Neil

Are you having reactions to those products?  We have a few members here who are very sensitive to soy - hopefully they'll chime in.

DS - peanut, tree nut, milk, eggs, corn, soy, several meds, many environmentals. Finally back on Xolair!
DD - mystery anaphylaxis, shellfish.
DH - banana/avocado, aspirin.  Asthma.
Me - peanut, tree nut, shellfish, banana/avocado/latex,  some meds.

Hi Rebekahc,
Thanks for your reply. I am definitely getting symptoms from somewhere. To the best of my knowledge, I have removed all of the soy and wheat foods from my diet. Thus, I am looking at non-food items. I tested positive on a skin prick test for soy and wheat allergy so it seems to me that I do not want to be brushing my teeth with toothpaste that has soy products in it, etc.

Your best bet maybe to find a list of gluten free toothpastes (Celiac.com has a messageboard that is easy to search) and then go from there.  Also post here to the wheat/gluten board because we have a member with Celiac who also avoids all forms of soy due to an allergy (Krasota).
DS1 - Wheat, rye, barley and egg
DS2 - peanuts
DD -  tree nuts, soy and sunflower
Me - bananas, eggplant, many drugs
