I have heard that beauty products can contain Gluten. I used to use Aveeno products, but now I think those might be off limits.

What body lotion and other beauty products are safe?

Is gluten absorbed through the skin?? (I am new here and didn't know we needed to get gluten free beauty products!)

Whether gluten can be absorbed through the skin is a topic much discussed here without finding a consensus.

What we do know for sure is that many products that start out as external use can end up being ingested. Shampoo can get into your mouth from runoff while you shower. Hand lotion can transfer to your mouth directly from your hands, or indirectly when you touch food with your hands.

Whether this matters is a question of your sensitivity level. I am not super-sensitive, but choose to use gluten-free soap (Ivory) and shampoo (Neutrogena).

Peter is it listed as gluten or something else?

I think with Shampoo for example, you could easily get it in to your mouth.

I just received gluten-free body products from a company called body sense. Just do a google with their name and their site will pop up. They have a Gluten Free area on their web site. I am new to the forum but I seem to be sensitive to a lot of foods and other things that are considered gluten-free and tolerated well by many others here. I imagine that bath and hair products could affect someone who is sensitive because the pores are open. I'm new here so I'll let the expert handle it. Just wanted to mention the company (don't know if I can link their site here).

OK, now is when I can get my resource geek hat out and put it on. Here are some links I found. Hope they help.

P.S. hope it's all right to post the sites this way. I'm still stumbling my way around here.

A few weeks ago someone posted a link to other names of gluten that can be found in shampoos/lotions/soaps. I'll find it and post it.

I use Ivory, Johnson and Johnson, Shikai Borage lotion, can't remember the other ones. But they are all gluten-free.

Good to know Ivory Snow is OK(unscented, I assume). I use that for face and sometimes in shower. I think Peter mentioned Neutrogena.

I'm not sure what if it is gluten-free or not, but I use Pureology and Nexxus on my hair, Oil of Olay on my face, and Bath and Body Works on my body. SO far so good. I also use Clinique makeup and moisturizer and it seems to be going ok.

I have VERY long hair, and there is a straightening product I use with wheat in it, I just wash my hands after I use it.

I also found a company called body sense gluten-free products pretty reasonable and it arrived within 4 days of my placing the order.

I also use ivory soap and Neutrogena and then the shampoo, conditioner, body soap, hair gel and spray from body sense,. A lot of these were recommended by our Peter (he must have soft skin). I spent a fortune on hair products before I moved and now don't think I should use them. I'll donate them, I guess. My eyesight makes it hard to read some of the labels (I think they use the smallest font on purpose)! I need to buy more make-up. Yves Roche had= gluten-free and so does Origins. Just all so expensive!!!!

    • Starting out
      I agree with everything cyclinglady said. You need to be tested BEFORE you go gluten free!!!!!! I was just reading an interview with Joseph A. Murray, MD who is head of the celiac dept. at Mayo Clinic & one of the top celiac experts & researchers in the world. He talks about this subject of going gluten free before testing many times during this interview. It's interesting reading. Please take a little time to read it all the way through. http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/820397_3

      That's interesting. I asked her if there was a blood test I could take, she said no. I don't think she feels I have celiac disease, per se, just wants to rule out an allergy or sensitivity to gluten. If after the 6 weeks, there is no difference, she suggested eliminating something else from my diet. She mentioned leaky gut and GMOs as well. Thanks for your input. I appreciated it.
    • Eating food cooked on a grill (eg, quesadillas, fish)
      In Mexican restaurants, I ask them to heat the corn tortillas in foil.  Also, make sure you ask if the chips are made in a dedicated fryer.

      Your GI is sadly mis-informed!  You should be tested for Celiac Disease before embarking on a gluten free diet.  Celiac Disease should be ruled out first!  So many doctors think that you have to be malnourished and wasting away to have celiac disease -- not true!  You can develop celiac disease at ANY age.  Do you have any other autoimmune disorders?   Celiac disease is also genetic.  So, if you have it, your kids and sibliings should be tested even if they are symptom free!  Celiac Disease has so many other issues that come with having it.  That's why having a proper diagnosis is important.  You will get the care you need.  Also, sticking to a life-long especially when you are older and it is hard to make changes in general (hey, I'm there!).    Your GP can actually order the celiac blood panel.  In addition, I would search around for another GI (one who is celiac savvy).   Here's a link regarding the exact tests: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ I encourage you to read up on celiac disease.  Only you can be your best health advocate!  I wish you well!  Feel free to ask any questions!  
    • Enjoy Life/ Perky's Cereal
      I am super bummed. I just went to order my breakfast staple for the last 10 years from Amazon  - my case of Enjoy Life's Crunchy Rice - over the last number of years it has gone though name and packaging changes but it has always been there for me for breakfast There is no more in stock at  Amazon so I contacted the company and found out that they are no longer going to be making any cereals. No Crunchy Rice or Crunchy Flax .  Super sad.  I need to find a replacement and i am very picky. I am looking for a simple cereal not sweet and not mushy in milk. I am not able to eat corn so it can not contain corn.  Any ideas for me? Michele

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
