These ingredients look fine to me--I'd try it. Hops are gluten free, if you were wondering about that.

I found a nice line of facial products--cleansers, wipes, creams, etc. called Simple. I called them, and the whole line is gluten-free. I think their eye cream is better than much more expensive ones I have tried. I use the light moisturizer as a hand cream since it truly fragrance free. Easily found at drug stores.

As for whether or not to use gluten-free facial products, that is up to you.

The only thing I wonder about is the tocopheryl. I'm not sure I've fully grasped the concept of which one is safe and which ones are not safe.

Patti, could you share the brand you use? I'm also looking for gluten-free face cream

It is called "Simple"

As far as the tocopheryl, it can occasionally be derived from wheat. It is so processed that it doesn't cause problems for many, but for the most sensitive it makes sense to call the manufacturer and ask. From my own experience calling companies (not scientific at all), soy is commonly the source but always check if you feel uncomfortable.
