I'm having a hard time finding gluten-free body care products like: shampoo, conditioner, facial moisturizer, lotion, etc...

I've seen where you can order things online but surely there are products out there that work well and are gluten-free already on the shelves.

What do you use?

I use Suave shampoo and conditioner. I also love Soft Soap in my shower and have at all my sinks, too (I buy the big size to refill smaller pump bottles). All are inexpensive and available everywhere. I also bought CeraVe Moisturizing Cream at Wal-Mart, which someone here posted is gluten free. I ditched my Bath & Body Works products. Posted Image

For facial moisturizer I use Loreal Skin Genesis, which I have no clue is gluten free or not but I've had no problem with it. And it's readily available, too, at Wal-Mart or drug stores.

I use EO products, which are made from essential oils (hence, the name). The line is gluten free, and I've been very pleased with it. I buy their shampoo, conditioner, and hand soap. If you go to their Website, you can find out where their products are sold.

Desert Essence Organix also carries a line of gluten-free shampoo and conditioners--it says it right on their products.

Most of the time I use Garneir Nutritioneste. I use their shampoo and conditioner and also their skin care line. They will clearly label gluten ingredients. Until I developed a soy allergy I used the organic Giovanni line. Their smooth as silk conditioner is great but the soy allergy makes me itch to much to use it anymore. Suave and Dove will also clearly label gluten ingredients. There is also a new line at my local health food store called Himilaya (I think I spelled that right). The labels say gluten free on them and they make a nice smelling conditioner and shampoo. Unfortunately the bottles for the conditioner are a thick plastic that I had to practically jump on to get the conditioner out so I won't be buying it again but if you have strong hands you may want to check it out.

Hi there,

"Green Beaver" is coming out with a line called Gluten Free. We are using the Mint Apple shampoo and conditioner and we love it. They have whole lines of products which are clearly marked gluten-free, not tested on animals, organic. I can buy them at my local gluten free shop, but you can order them online and they won't break the bank.

You don't "have to," but some of us do react, especially if we have longer hair or are super sensitive. We have a well, low water pressure, and hard water, and I don't want to spend a half tank of hot water trying to get that stuff rinsed absolutely completely off of me. I was especially concerned about conditioners, which frequently have wheat and oat products in them, when they leave an oily residue over your hair, and then it gets into your towel and the rest on your hands if you tend to play with your hair. Think about how you can sometimes taste soap shampoo residue when showering. Same with moisturizers. I have gotten glutened from my spouse using hand lotion, and then bare handing ice cubes into my glass. If I can smell it, it's there- and if I kiss somebody on the top of their head, for example, that is the LAST thing I want to be kissing.

A lot of these "moisturizing" bar soaps leave an oil scum on your hands, too.

I use water with apple cider vinegar (8 parts water, 1 part vinegar) as a final rinse, or spritz it onto my hair from a spray bottle, then put a tiny dab of coconut oil or pure shea butter in my palm and massage it over my wet hair.

Dessert Essence Organics products are all vegan and gluten free! www.desertessence.com/organics

I love their Coconut line of products....shampoo, conditioner,body wash, lotion, hand soap!! :)

Most of the ShiKai products are gluten free as well. I use their shampoo and conditioner.

<Thank you for your interest in ShiKai Products. All of our products are gluten free except for our moisturizing shower gels as they contain colloidal oatmeal and our borage moisturizer with SPF 15 as the starch in it is derived from wheat. Thank you and have a good day.>

A good hair product has been hard to find....most that I try make me have a reaction but I have found that Jonathon has good hair products that are gluten free such as Dirt Paste or Silky Dirt styling cream. :)

I use either a whole body bar from Sun Leaf Naturals, though they may be a local only company or a Desert Essence shampoo. I find the natural products work much better on my hair. Both are gluten free.

I use the body bar on my daughter, who is the one who actually needs the gluten free stuff. I keep her bath products gluten free because you never know what a kid is going to do with the bath water when you have your back turned for a sec.Posted Image
