Happy Valentine’s Day!
Parenting a food allergy child can bring you on a rollercoaster of feeling many ups and downs. Since I’m a first-time mother learning to navigate this lifestyle, this topic is very near and dear to my heart. Not everyone understands that it’s not just the food allergy child that’s affected by the food allergy, it’s everybody that loves and cares for this child.
An allergic reaction to food can range from a mild response (such as an itchy mouth) to anaphylaxis, a severe and potentially deadly reaction. Did you know that deadly allergens can also be present in lip balm, lipstick, soap, makeup, sunscreen and creams? Some may not think about this, and unfortunately I didn’t until I had to start educating myself for my child.
So this Valentine’s Day, you may not have to think twice about kissing someone, but for my little man it is very important because of his peanut and tree nut allergy. I wanted to share a new company I’ve discovered called Kiss Freely! They have these awesome lip balms (and more!). Now I know I can snuggle and smooch him safely thanks to these lip balms.
There are three different kinds: lime, grapefruit, and orange. They all have a smooth, natural consistency and smell divine! I cannot decide which one is my favorite because I love the smell of all of them. The lip balms are made from Organic Candelilla wax, Sal Butter, Squalene Oil, Jojoba Oil, Castor Oil, and Essential Oil. I carry the orange scented one in my son’s diaper bag and can use it on him in these colder winter months!
About Kiss Freely
Kiss Freely is a food allergy friendly company that has bath and body products. Their products are free of the 8 major allergens and then some. They avoid the use of other potential allergens as well such as sesame, shea butter, peas, coconut, avocado and sunflower seed.
Their products are all natural, allergen & gluten free. They are also vegan! They love animals, and I love animals, so this is a huge plus for me.
Kiss Freely’s products are made in a nut free facility and the ingredients are thoroughly investigated. They use dedicated equipment to avoid any cross contamination and I appreciate this. They understand cross contamination and the risk that it poses. As a food allergy mother, this brings me comfort that only other food allergy parents can understand.
Finally, a portion of their profits go to food allergy organizations working towards finding a cure and raising awareness. If you would to make a donation, please visit FARE.
