We are in the process of trying to find TP our daughter can tolerate. She is very sensitive to tactile glue exposure, unless gluten-free, and bleaches for sure.

I have scoured the internet trying to find any gluten-free list for TP and Kleenexes and finding nothing. Can anyone help?

Thanks,
Lisa

I've never seen a gluten-free list for toilet paper. How would gluten get in it in the first place?

Seventh Generation is chlorine-free. Maybe that would work for her.

You could make your own tp. Interesting but a lot of work. Interesting tho.

I knew that a lot of TP and other paper products had corn, but I wasn't aware of gluten. Could it be the corn that is bothering her?

gluten-free since June, 2011

It took 3 !/2 years but my intolerances to corn, soy, and everything else (except gluten) are gone!

Life is good!

From the online, albeit online chat, I have read adhesives/glues are included frequently in personal care paper products, and certain corn could be a culprit as well.

Still ...upon researching key words corn, and wheat/gluten free failing to find lists that aren't over 2 years old.

Thanks,

Never heard of anybody worrying about gluten-free toilet paper so can't say. I have heard of folks worrying about paper towels where it's glued but also have heard either that there's no wheat there or folks just avoid these first and last sheets.
