Can someone direct me to a list of most common skin irritants?
Someone posted that peppermint can irritate babies skin. I need a list of everything that is known to cause irritation in some people. Is there such a thing? I want to make sure that my recipes won't cause someone to break out in a rash.
And what sort of disclaimer should I put on my products? There's a lady that has a consignment shop wanting to allow me place my soap there and i want to make sure everything's lableled correctly and covers me in case of accident, theft, whatever..

I do know that spices such as peppermint, cinamon, speramint, nutmeg and such can be a skin irritant. So can different fragrance oils. Some folks are allergic to coconut. Meaning any coconut oil, or coconut fragrance can be highly toxic to them. Some people have peanut allergies. Ok people can be allergic to anything. I have used products that were labeled to be used at the consumers own risk. I do believe that soaps are required to list every ingredient that is included. At least that is what I read in one popular soapmaking book. I hope some of this info helps. :D I say label so people know what they are getting and label that use may cause allergic reaction. That way you are covering yourself.
