Obsidian: Okay, don't judge me but I have uncommon reactions. I get a skin-crawling sensation every time I use anything coconut based. I feel it esp in my fingers and toes. One time I tried a shower gel from a homemade business and felt that sensation all over the lower part of my leg. It was disturbing... and I think it was a coconut based shower gel. Then I get pimples from anything olive-oil based. Coconut oil gives pimples, too. Shea butter dries my skin out in a way where my hands sound like rubbing sandpaper together and I can snag mittens, gloves, towels if I use it. It also causes an allergic reaction if I use it as a lip balm for example, my lips and tongue start burning... sometimes I get dyshidrosis, that happens a lot with petrolem-based lotions (little bumps all over my fingers). Cocoa butter causes pimples. And as ImpKid stated, a lot of these oils/butters share proteins so I have pretty much a negative reaction to other things related to them. so I've tried mango butter, kokum butter, cupuacu butter and got these same negative reactions... I guess my problem could be internal, never really thought about that.
