    Welcome to the forum, Andie.

    In my own experience, I have not seen this problem with most of the food products I've tried.

    I'd suggest making your own products. If it's meat alternatives you are looking for, maybe try making your own seitan wheat-meat. If it's creams, moisturizers, and cosmetics, again, there's zillions of recipes to make your own. Obviously, diligence reading labels will help as well.

    I did a quick google search and found a mass amount of DIY cosmetics. Some had coconut oil, but many offered alternatives, like olive oil, cocoa, and shea butters. You will find the same with meat alternatives, as in thousands of recipes. Try googling or a youtube search for "seitan recipes".
