DS, 10/07. Allergies: peanut, egg, wheat. We've added dairy back in. And taken it back out again. It causes sandpaper skin with itchy patches and thrashing during sleep. Due w/ #2 late April, 2012.

It reacts with the fats & oils to form soap. Ingredient lists will sometimes list sodium tallowate (lye/beef tallow combo). Sometimes you'll see sodium cocoate, that is coconut oil/lye soap. Usually any word that has -ate at the end is the oil mixed with lye. On the Dr B label they call it "saponified organic coconut oil. Saponification is the process that turns lye/oils to soap. That is probably too much info!
