I was at shoppers drug.mart and took note of all the products that I came across that had peanut oil or derivatives.
Please add on if you know more!

Just an FYI for those who don't know other names for peanuts:
Arachidic acid, also called eicosanoic acid, is a saturated fatty acid found in peanut oil. Peanuts Latin name is arachis. French name is cacaheuta. Also goes by:
Nu-Nuts
arachide
monkey nuts
beer nuts
mandelona nuts
goober nuts

Also be aware to a product that only lists hydrolyzed protein or vegetable protein and not what its source is eg.corn.

Dr.Hauschka- Peanut oil -is one of the first few ingred.!
Roc "Minesol" had arachidyl alcohol
Nuxe- Had almond oil
BioDerma "sebium al" - Had arachidyl alcohol
La Roche Posay- Had arachidly glucoside, soja/soybean oil & arachidyl alcohol
Vichy "auto bronzant- Had arachidyl alcohol
Elancyl- Had almond oil
Clarins- Couple products for the face had arachidyl
Oil of Olay- Have been told not sure which products
Lorel- In a foundation

I noticed most self tanners have peanut oill/nut oils or forms of it...urgh! I guess its too much to ask for a nut free Noncomedogenic self tanner!

Thank you very much for sharing that list and the alternate names. I had never heard of eicosanoic acid :? We sure have a lot to learn.
