Coconut, Babassu, and Palm Kernel Allergy
by Martha Mackay
I got tested by an allergist and found out I am allergic to coconut, Babassu, Palm Kernel, Apricot oil, Avocado oil, Oat meal, wheat, Rice, Barley, Rye, and Malt
I am trying to find a company that sells soaps that do not contain these things. Or please tell me how to make some soap myself that doesn't use these ingredients.

Considering the extent of your allergies, I would suggest sticking with a Castile type soap.
Castile soap contains only olive oil, water and lye.
If you can't find any to purchase, it is fairly easy to make yourself.
Here is a recipe you could use:
Olive Oil - 900 grams
Water - 342 grams
Lye - 115.83 grams
Use the instructions for cold process soap making
and be sure to purchase a stick blender since olive oil takes quite some time to reach a trace.
