Has anyone had a reaction to a lipstick with jojoba oil listed in the ingredients?  I've read different opinions of it being derived from a seed verses nut.

I havenít heard of reactions to jojoba oil. From what I can see itís derived from the seed of a desert bush rather than a tree, so my guess would be itís not closely related to tree nuts. Iím sure people can be allergic to jojoba just like anything else, but it doesnít seem to be of particular concern for tree nut allergic individuals.
