So I just realized that while the Burt's Bees lip balm I've been using for years is gluten free, it includes vitamin E derived from soy. I am intolerant of both gluten and soy and I have a couple of questions.

1. Should I discontinue use of products containing soy derivatives? (This includes hair and fact products too) I.E. vitamin E?
Some sites I've looked at say that soy oil/lecithin is safe for those with intolerances...I'm not so sure.

2. Is petroleum jelly (Vaseline) a safe alternative?

3. If vaseline is not okay...do you have any suggestions for gluten/soy free lip balm or chap-stick. I live in the Midwest where's it cold and dry right now and my lips get very chapped. I'd love to be able to put something on them so they don't hurt and crack.

Thanks so much!

Vaseline is gluten free. It is only petroleum jelly - nothing else. Chapstick is gluten free, but I'm not aware of a soy association.
