Gluten-free Skincare Products

Gluten-free” is all the rage these days.  From the grocery store aisle to my conditioner, I can’t avoid it.  But what about skincare products, do they need to be gluten-free?  I’ll give you the scoop and recommend some products to try.



What Does Gluten-Free Mean?


Gluten is wheat. Gluten-free products and food are made without wheat.



Should I Use Gluten Free Skincare Products?


There are only 2 reasons I know of that someone needs to avoid gluten; they have  a GI condition called Celiac Sprue, or they have a blistering skin condition  known as DH (Dermatitis Herpetiformis).  Both conditions are set off by the  oral consumption of gluten, not the topical application.  According  to the Mayo Clinic, those who need to be on a gluten-free diet DO NOT need to use gluten-free skin care products as gluten is not absorbed through the skin.  Gluten is  only absorbed through the GI tract. Keep in mind, products containing gluten should not be  applied to the lips or mouth as they might be ingested.  If you find you’re allergic to wheat or grain products, avoid those grains b/c of your allergy, not gluten!

Lots of great skincare products are all ready made gluten-free!  I recommend the following:
