Hi,

I am wondering if you can help me?? I just noticed that many of the shampoos, hair colors, mascara etc I am using have gluten in them. I was under the understanding you did not need to use gluten-free products that are not being ingested....I am however beginning to wonder if this in NOT true as being 100% gluten-free for a while now, I still have digestive and itchy skin issues....was I miss informed should my body products and make up be gluten-free??/ any help would be so appreciated...

Enjoy

Well, could it be similar to cross contamination? I think so. I know my daughter won't use items containing gluten. She does get symptoms: rash, itchiness, etc. But there could also be damage underway once it gets into your bloodstream, via skin. I would not take the chance. :)

There's a wonderful online site that sells gluten free shampoo and body products. It's called Body Sense and isn't too expensive. You just have to make sure you go to the gluten-free section.

I'll post their link below.

how do you know they have gluten? what are some of the ingredients you often find?

I can't seem to figure out what ingredients to look out for besides things that obviously say "wheat..." whatever...
