It would be too easy if Sunflower was simply labelled "Sunflower" on ingredients lists but unfortunately that isn't the case so watch out for these too.
 
Helianthus Annus - Latin

Tournesol - French

Potassium Oleate - Gentle foaming agent from sunflower

Sodium Olefin Sulfonate - Gentle cleanser from sunflower

Grindelia Robusta - Wild sunflower (Unsure if would cause reaction but better safe than sorry)

This is a great reference. I was ( unpleasantly) surprised to find that sunflower oil is in nearly ALL of the lip balms that I looked at from my son the other day (he has just started having swollen lips from the pawpaw ointment he has used for years-turns out its very allergenic!).
The more 'natural' the brand the worse they seemed to be (sunflower oil plus other seed oils including nut oils etc).
My son has very frequent epipodes of lip swelling which once the swelling abates, his lips basically peel and become very cracked (its then a vicious cycle with lip swelling to things he would other wise eat without problem).
cheers

I've had fantastic luck with Badger lipbalms. If you can't find those locally, you can order 'em online; no nut or seed oils: http://www.badgerbalm.com/
