Gluten-Free Personal Care Market Sees Rapid Expansion

Celiac.com 03/16/2011 - The market for gluten-free cosmetics and personal care products seems to be enjoying some of the same rapid growth seen over the last several years by the gluten-free food industry.

As a result, many companies are moving to create new, gluten-free products and formulations for consumers who suffer from celiac disease or gluten intolerance.

From 2007 to 2009,  gluten-free cosmetics and personal care market saw the launch of seventeen new gluten-free cosmetics and personal care products, while the number of gluten-free lip products rose from one to 10, according to Mintel.

Gluten-free, Vegan, vegetarian and cruelty-free are all making strong headway in the personal and beauty care industry.

In 2007, a company called Symrise introduced a gluten-free alternative to common wheat- and milk soy-derived proteins. Symrise's two, gluten-free, plant-based moisturizing ingredients, Hydromoist L and Hydromoist O, are derived

from lupine and oats, respectively. They make make a suitable ingredient in certain shampoos.

In 2009, color cosmetics and personal care manufacturer Logona Natural Cosmetics launched an all gluten-free line featuring 155 products.

Natural skincare product creator Natural Bodycare has introduced a line of more than 90 formulas is now 100-percent vegan and mostly gluten-free, with the exception of two products that contain Avena sativa (oat) kernel extract, which may have traces of gluten.

From cosmetics to body and skin care products and ingredients, the market for gluten-free personal care products is rapidly expanding. Because of this expansion, people with celiac disease and gluten intolerance can now enjoy personal body care products that just a few years ago would have been unavailable. It looks like more gluten-free personal care companies, products and developments are just around the corner.
