I am an adolescent, so I still have the normal troubles with mild acne. I've been using the same AcneFree Sensitive Skin regimen for many years (company claims it's gluten-free), and the face wash contains Oat Kernel Extract, which is listed as a product to avoid if you are avoiding gluten, but does it really contain any gluten? My blood test for celiac came back negative, but I do believe I am gluten sensitive/intolerant, and I have been gluten free for almost three months with some results but not complete recovery. Am I possibly not getting completely better (lingering GI symptoms) because of this Oat Kernel Extract, or am I being ridiculous? I don't have any unusual skin conditions, and I don't consider myself exceptionally sensitive to gluten. I hesitate to quit using it just to find out because it works satisfyingly well for my acne and finding another regimen would be so much trouble.

Oh, and I stopped eating oats when I quit gluten, so I'm not sure whether they bother me.

Thanks in advance for any feedback.
