Response I received re: Clinique lipstick which applies to many of Estee Lauder's product line.

Scary.

As you may be aware, people allergic to peanuts may also react to soybeans,
peas, other legumes and tree nuts, such as walnuts and Brazil nuts. It has
been acknowledged in the medical community that tree nut allergic reactions
coexist in nearly one third of the peanut allergic population. For this
reason, Estee Lauder Companies takes a very serious and conservative
approach in responding to you.

A vast number of raw materials from many different suppliers and sources
are used in the manufacture of Estee Lauder Companies' products. It is
therefore not possible for us to fully guarantee that our products are
completely free of ingredients that may elicit an allergic response in
highly sensitive individuals who react to legumes and nuts. For example,
it is possible that small amounts of a soybean sourced ingredient or trace
amounts of peanut oil may remain on shared manufacturing equipment even
after a thorough cleaning. Even trace amounts of allergens can trigger a
severe reaction when a peanut sensitive individual comes in contact with
them (i.e., hugging/kissing your peanut sensitive child while wearing
cosmetics). We therefore recommend that you discuss this with your
physician because consumer safety is of utmost concern to us.

Additionally the Long Last Soft Matte lipstick does contain ingredients
derived from shea butter, coconut and soy.
