I saw a commercial the other day for Puffs tissues. In the commercial they advertise that they are moisturizing with Aloe and ________. Where else do they get this amazing moisture? The answer is Shea Butter! Yes, shea butter, which comes from shea nut, a tree nut. So, yes, to my shock and amazement, nuts are now in tissues! Here is the link to watch the commercial: http://www.puffs.com/en_US/games-commercials/tv-commercial.shtml.
I always read ingredients in any product I use, including shampoos, conditioners, lotions, toothpaste, make-up, etc. It seems crazy to me though that a company would put tree nut in their tissues! I know people don’t eat tissues, but they certainly put them against their face. What stops someone from breaking out in hives if they are allergic to tree nuts and use a shea butter Puff tissue? Maybe the shea protein is so minimal that it won’t affect me, but I would rather not tempt fate to find out! Tissues are everywhere; in stores, doctors offices, schools. I can’t say that I usually look for tissue ingredients. If I am out somewhere and I need a tissue, I usually just take one. Not until I saw this commercial, would I have thought that I now need to be careful of the kinds of tissues I use. Who would have guessed that a company would be naive enough to put shea butter in their tissues?
