Hi guys. It's freezing her in Wisconsin. -2 F can you believe that? I'm cracking!

Anyways, I need a good lotion and before I was diagnosed I always used the Eucerin products like Aquaphor, etc...

They aren't open yet to call and I haven't seen anything on their site in their FAQ's.

Do you guys know if their products are gluten-free?

(For instance, right now I"m only using Cetaphil gentle cleanser because that's the only one that's gluten-free...)

I've been using "avon moisture theraphy Intensive hand cream" I emailed them and was told its safe. Its amazing stuff, my hands get so bad they would bleed, now they're so soft. I order on line, its in a white tube, blue lettering 4.2 oz.

my hubby has rosacea, nothing the dr gave him helped, he used this on his face and it all went away in 2 days!!

hope this helps :D

FYI - I was told by Eucerin today that they can't guarantee any of their products are gluten-free (incl. aquaphor).

I highly recommend Burt's Bees Hand Salve! I also use Vaselin Intensive Therapy. I have very dry skin.

I've been using ST.Ives Extreme Relief Intensive Healing Advanced Therapy Lotion. (Unscented . Hypo-Allergenic) It is one of the few lotions that feels soothing to me. Early I had posted a reply that I had received from St. Ives that listed all their products that contain gluten and this WAS NOT on that list.

I use Udderly Smooth Udder Cream on my hands. It's gluten-free, it's thick, but isn't at all greasy. http://www.uddercream.com/

For my body, I use Amlactin, which used to only be available with a prescription. You can usually find it near the pharmacy, or you can ask for it. It is gluten-free as well as corn free :)

Is this really the ONLY gluten free cleanser?

Why do we need to use gluten-fre body products? Gluten doesn't absorb through the skin does it? Is it just the risk of having it on your hands and therefore contaminating food? :huh:

No, perhaps she meant that the cleanser is the only *Cetaphil* product that is gluten-free. There are many gluten-free facial cleansers out there.

I use Zia Moisturizing Cleanser. It can be found at health food stores, Whole Foods and Wegman's Natural Marketplace.

There are also many other widely available brands.

I cook a lot, and wash my hands a lot, which doesn't help with dry skin. Rather than use hand lotion all the time, just to be quickly washed away, I keep a small container of a mixture of coconut oil and olive oil and use this generously while I'm in the kitchen. It's "food" so I feel I'm not contaminating my food with lotion ingredients (however safe) and is dirt cheap. It's nice on my lips, too.

When I'm not cooking, I use Savonnerie lotion www.gfsoap.com and Badger Balm (similar to Burt's Bee's balms). Both these products contain no gluten and no corn derivatives (which is usually in the vitamin E/C/A, etc.). Badger makes a lip balm, too, that's safe for those with corn allergies.

You're right about gluten not being absorbed through the skin. I use gluten-free lotion because I'm always putting it on may hands and sometimes I'll put my finger in my mouth to bite off a hang nail....

It's just an extra precaution.
