There are others, but these are the ones on the new Delfi Product List for 2006. Hope this can get you started. :)

Hi Mona--welcome to the board! :)

Dove will clearly list any gluten, so you're ok there. In addition to gluten-free products, I also choose products without SLS or other harsh detergents whenever possible. I don't have DH, but I do get itching and eczema.

Some good products to look for--ShiKai Shampoo and Conditioner, Kiss My Face Olive Oil Bar Soap, Jason Showersilk Liquid shower soap--those are free of SLS.

Other brands that are gluten-free--Softsoap, Purex Free and Clear (and regular) laundry detergent, All Free and Clear (and regular) laundry detergent.

what is the delfi list. And also can you tell me what to look for as far as the chemicals that may contain gluten. I read my dawn bottle and nothing was obvious as far as gluten goes.

I just called Clairol yesterday to see if Herbal Essences is safe----they tell me that they do not add gluten, but that they cannot trace the ingredients in their fragrances (which *might* contain gluten). This sounds like a CYA statement, but I did a search on this board, and one person reports reacting to Herbal Essences (I found a total of two references to this product)

Do people trust Clairol?

I'm resurrecting a very old thread here - I was doing a search to find out if my laundry detergent was gluten free.

To answer someone's Clairol question (though I'm sure it probably has been in another thread since this one), I use Nice & Easy Gray Solutions hair color, and I suspect the conditioner that comes with it is not gluten free. I still use the hair color because I haven't found one that covers gray as well, but I'm very careful and I shampoo it out of my hair, then use my own conditioner.

Is there a list somewhere of brands of laundry detergents, fabric softeners, and dryer sheets that are gluten free?

I found another old thread in a search to find out what items in my kitchen I need to get rid of (teflon cookware, plastic cutting board, etc. - I apparently missed a lot of things when I went gluten free a year ago, and I'm still having occasional "mystery glutenings" that I'm trying to avoid). The thread had some really helpful information that might be good for newly gluten-free people to see: http://www.glutenfre...?showtopic=2011

It mentioned that non-gluten free laundry detergent leaves residue on kitchen towels, which transfers to dishes. If I've been using a non-gluten free dish detergent, does anyone know whether rewashing all my kitchen towels in gluten-free dish detergent is enough to remove the residue? It's going to be a bit of an expense to replace my pots and pans and some other items - I hope I don't have to replace towels right now, too. :o

I use a shampoo and creme rinse from the Dessert Essence Organics line--it actually states "gluten free" on these products.

I know that there is a lot of people on here who will scream at me for saying this but here goes...

Unless you are eating the soap/shampoo/ect.. You can use whatever you want. DH is caused by antibodies getting attached to gluten proteins in the bloodstream via the digestive track (vie eating/drinking). After these antibodies attach themselves to the gluten protein, this "attachment" gets trapped in the smaller capillaries in the body (just below the skin surface. Thus, causing a herpetiformis rash.

The gluten protein MUST enter the bloodstream to cause this reaction. There are only 2 ways that this will happen!
1. put gluten into your stomach.
2. have a cut on your skin, and rub/pour/insert the gluten protein into it.

Unless you are dealing with open head wounds/ or skin tears on the body. The type of shampoo you use should not exacerbate any DH symptoms.

If you need some peer reviewed journals/studies on this topic. I will be happy to provide for you. Just send me an e-mail

Good Luck. Brizzo

You could not worry about it and use what you want...and hope for the best....or be certain and use things like Dove products. Burts Bees has A LOT of gluten-free products that I like.

Another laundry detergent to consider is Biokleen. It's plant based (vs Gain and others which are petroleum based). It is gluten free has soda ash, and other plant based items. It is ok to use unless you have citrus sensitivity.

I love Kiss My Face. It's the only lotion that doesn't make me itch. I use the olive oil and aloe.

As for shampoo/conditioner--- I just checked a few that I didn't like (i.e. itchy scalp afterwards- breakage problems) Motions, Softsheen Carson. I am totally disgusted. They were causing my hair to fall out! I quit using them and noticed less shedding. They all list "hydrolyzed wheat protein". Now mind you these are all "ethnic" products. I can't believe I missed that one!

I am taking some time to learn the lesson of "always read your labels"!

You can also use pure castille soap for laundry (liquid form) in a regular washing machine - not sure about front loaders though. I need to look into that.......

You can also use it for cleaning - does a pretty decent job on soap scum!

Plus, it's all natural inredients.

brizzo,

I won't scream at you, but I do question your opinion on this matter. I started having a DH problem after being gluten free for over three years. After three months of sheer torture with my face covered with blisters, I finally contacted several gluten intolerance associations for help. They each advised me to check whether my shampoos, conditioners, makeups, detergents, etc., contained gluten. Lo and behold, the shampoo I'd been using for the past three months listed wheat germ in it. After discontinuing use of the shampoo, the DH resolved itself. And, no, I didn't ingest any shampoo....just in case you're thinking that. Of course, it's possible that it touched my lips, but it should have rinsed off just fine. That said, isn't gluten simply a nutrient like any other? I use a number of transdermal nutrient products because I have empaired ability to absorb fat-soluble vitamins. Since THEY are able to reach the cellular level, it makes sense that gluten does, too. However, without studies on this particular matter, there's a lot of misinformation--in my opinion--so I have to go with my own personal experiences.
