Thanks for the compliment, debra!
Peter wrote an Ask Dr. D'Adamo answer on this subject. His view is that we needn't be concerned about using a topical product which contains avoids. For instance, aloe earned its O avoid label by its effects after ingestion -- the aloe-based cream you apply to your feet won't find its way into your digestive tract, and what little may pass the skin barrier shouldn't give you trouble.
I'm discussing this in general terms, but everyone has a different level of sensitivity to avoids in hair and skin products ~ so it's wise to stop using any product if it causes an adverse reaction in you.
