Product list that is free of coconut and coconut derived ingredients for those allergic to coconut or sensitive to coconut ingredients. Includes bath, body, hair care, skin care, and more.
Finding products when you are allergic to coconut can seem impossible. Especially now when it is a really popular ingredient in so many products.
This guide was put together to help. It is a product guide for bath and body care, skin care, hair care, make up, sunscreen, bug spray, and so much more. All of it is coconut free and contains no ingredients derived from coconut.
Guide updated for December 2023
Note: These products are listed as coconut free at the time of writing. However, companies can and do change their products all the time. Therefore, it is SUPER important that you double check all the items on this list and make sure that they are safe for you to use before purchasing. I always recommend a skin test before using a product.
Bath and Body Wash
Keeping the body nice and clean, but also staying coconut free!
Kiss My Face Olive Oil Soap This is what I use and have loved for years! It’s currently out of stock everywhere but you may be able to find it at a local store.
Papoutsanis Pure Greek Olive Oil Soap This was recommended by a lovely reader who said she switched to this as Kiss My Face has been unavailable. According to her it feels just the same as the Kiss My Face brand. Thank you so much for recommending this and if you need some soap, try this one.
Poofy Organics Vanilla Sugar Soap (contains corn)
Baby and Child Care
Coconut free products for the littlest of kids! Includes a few things just for mom as well.
Poofy Organics Everything Baby Wash (contains corn)
Poofy Organics Cheery Cherry Toddler Toothpaste (contains possible soy, corn)
Uncle Harry’s Mild Mint Toothpowder (Contains mustard)
Poofy Organics Happy Boobies Nipple Cream (contains calendula)
Face Wash and Cleansing Oils
No matter if you wash your face in the morning, evening, or both, the type of cleanser you use is key. These products are all gentle on the skin and have different properties for different skin types.
My face tends to break with eczema thanks to my allergies, so I always look for extra hydration.
There are lots to choose from here, but be aware that some contain other allergens like wheat or almond oil.
Dr Hauschka Cleansing Cream (contains Peanuts, Almonds, Chamomile, Wheat)
Eczema Honey Itch Cooling Face and Body Rounds (contains oats)

Next up, how to smell great without the coconut.
Crystal Mineral Deodorant Stick (I have used this and loved it for years!)
After washing your face, having a good moisturizer is essential. Some of these are lighter moisturizers for the day, and others are thicker for the nighttime. No matter which type of moisturizer you choose, these all are coconut free.
Eczema Honey Nourishing Face Serum (contains oats, chamomile)
Uncle Harry’s Sandalwood Face Mask (contains oats)
When I first started to search out coconut free hair care products, they seemed like a unicorn. However, they can be found! These products should help you on your hair care journey no matter where you are and no matter the type.
Buying shampoo without coconut can seem challenging. Shampoos do more than cleanse the scalp, they can provide moisture, clarify, and even exfoliate.
Kiss My Face Olive Oil Bar (this can be used on body and as a shampoo or even as a hand soap!)
Penn’s Hill Olive Oil Castile Soap (this can be used on body, hands, and as a shampoo!)
Poofy Organics Mighty Mane Shampoo (contains soy, corn, or mustard)
Conditioners and Hair Oils
Hair conditioner is usually applied right after shampooing as a means of restoring moisture and closing the cuticle. By helping close the cuticle, it reduces tangles, gives the hair more shine, decreases static, and moisturizes (of course!).
Eczema Honey Soothing Scalp Serum (contains oats)
Poofy Organics Happy Hair Hairspray (contains wheat, soy, corn, or mustard)
Poofy Organics Mighty Mane Hair Serum (contains argan oil)
No matter what your skin care routine looks like, everyone needs a good body lotion. Daily application is crucial for the best results. The body has fewer oil glands than the face, so the body can dry out a lot faster than the face.
These coconut free body lotions are generally thicker in consistency. I like to apply mine after a shower for better absorption.
Uncle Harry’s Healing Foot Salve (contains almond)
Elegant Rose Whipped Body Butter available in lots of different scents
Every skin type should be wearing sunscreen and coconut free sunscreens make that possible! I found these that are the recommended SPF of 30 or more so that the skin is getting proper coverage. Make sure you re-apply it every 2 hours, and always after swimming.
If you’re wearing makeup as well, put your sunscreen on under makeup.
This is my favorite. You can also make a home mix of a safe oil as a carrier oil and a few drops of tea tree oil, eucalyptus oil, lemongrass oil, and some witch hazel.
Badger Anti-Bug Spray – contains soy
