Yes, Food Allergies Begin with Eczema-Atopic Dermatitis. Look at the two pictures below. First, on the left, you have a baby with healthy skin. Plenty of food everywhere. Healthy skin reduces the chance of creating a life-long food allergy. Second, on the right, you see a baby with a facial rash. Food contact or skincare containing allergens like tree nuts (shea butter) cause allergies to eating tree nuts a year later. Putting common allergens, like shea nut oil, and surfactants on your skin can be the reason we become allergic to food. Because of this, Ceela offers allergen and surfactant free skincare, the only of its kind.
Finally, please note that we believe the National Eczema Association cannot be trusted. This organization recommends Cetaphil and Cerave. We have already described Cetaphil’s problems and the fact that Cerave contains a tree nut, almond. Above all else, the AAAAI.org cautions against putting common food allergens on eczema or atopic dermatitis.

Read about the poor woman who put goat’s milk on her skin for eczema. She developed a food allergy that nearly killed her.
When she later ate feta cheese (a goat’s milk cheese) she almost died. This was due to a life-threatening allergy to goat’s milk caused by the skin cream. Her skin healed, but she developed a laboratory documented food allergy due to the eczema food allergy link.
So, the reason to avoid putting skincare containing common allergens on damaged skin is because it can lead to food allergies: Food Allergies Begin with Eczema-Atopic Dermatitis.
There are specialized cells beneath normal skin cells that ordinarily protect us. These cells trigger allergies. These cells will teach our body to become allergic. Therefore, common food allergens on skin cause reactions when the food is subsequently eaten.
Finally, we understand why babies first get eczema/AD and then get Food Allergies. Also of note, most of today’s lotions/creams contain nasty detergents/surfactants that are well known to accelerate the allergic response.
Manufacturers can label highly refined oils derived from these common allergens without a warning label. The manufacturer doesn’t need to tell you that tocopherol Vitamin E comes from soybeans.
Today, BASF manufactures soy-based tocopherol with 95% of the market. Nobody else produces industrial quantities. If you eat foods containing tocopherol, you are likely eating soy. Ceela uses 100% soy-free Vitamin E.
Ceela believes you have a Right and a Need to know what allergens are in your cosmetics. Ceela products, of course, have no common allergens or corn.
As stated, Food Allergies Begin with Eczema-Atopic Dermatitis, and we wish to stop the propagation of allergies seen today. Unfortunately, the FDA treats cosmetics and foods differently when it comes to allergen labeling requirements. According to the FDA, no labeling of common allergens needs to occur in cosmetics.
…do not need to be labeled as allergens. However, we have published data that shows these oils contain small amounts of proteins that are linked to the allergic response of many foods. Because cosmetics do not contain label warnings about soy, we can not really know if soy is present in any given cosmetic. Ceela believes we need to treat our skin like our gut. The eczema-food allergy link means we should not put any known allergen on our skin, as this can create the eczema to food allergy link.
Above all else, consider the list below that covers the FDA food allergens, which cause 90% of the food-allergic reactions. As a result, the top eight listed below have become the gold standard for food manufacturers. However, skincare does not have to warn you. Ceela has excluded these ingredients from our manufacturing facility and products. We use no products even remotely derived from these food sources. Also, we do not use corn or sesame-derived ingredients. To summarize: Ceela simply avoids the Eczema Atopic Dermatitis to Food Allergy Link.
In summary, Food Allergies Begin with Eczema-Atopic Dermatitis when common food allergens land on our barrier-deficient skin. Currently, the FDA does not require cosmetic manufacturers to label allergens. You need to read the labels very carefully to avoid soy, peanuts, wheat, dairy, and tree nuts.
In 2004, Congress only considered food (and not cosmetics) as it passed the Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer Protection Act of 2004 (FALCPA). These eight foods are designated as “major food allergens” by FALCPA.es.
Each year in the U.S., it is estimated that anaphylaxis to food results in:
Therefore, if you have the potential for anaphylaxis, see your physician or nurse practitioner. Prompt administration of epinephrine by autoinjector (e.g., Epi-pen) during early symptoms of anaphylaxis may help prevent these serious consequenc
