In Topic: gluten-free Hand Lotion For Extremely Dry Skin - Any Recommendations?

20 May 2011 - 12:27 PM

My hands are extremely dry. The skin on my knuckles is even starting to split and bleed. I have been using all the normal lotions I have, but none of them are helping. My mom always gives me silicone glove from Avon for Christmas, so I have a crapload of that, but I haven't checked its gluten-free status so I am not using it.

Do any of you have a recommendation for a good hand lotion for extremely dry skin that is gluten-free? I wash my hands probably 30 times a day what with preparing food, using the washroom, changing diapers, etc. But they have never gotten this bad before.

Any help will be apreciated.

I use O'Keeffe's Working Hands, which is scentless and non-greasy as well as being gluten-free. It's great stuff - doesn't wash off as easily as most lotions - and is intended specifically for hands that crack and split, according to the package. Mine don't, but it's the best hand cream I've ever found, and members of my family who aren't celiacs agree. You can sometimes find it in hardware stores (I'm told most Ace hardware stores seem to have it), though if you live as far from civilization as I do, you'll have to buy it online.

In Topic: Gluten Free Cosmetics And Hair Care

Hello to all, I am very glad to have this resource available and thank all of you esp. the founder for making this available.

I just recently found out that I am gluten intolerant, waiting for further information.

My head has been itching and has little "pimples" on the scalp, it bacame clear to me I needed to check out the hair care products I am using.

Is there a list of gluten-free products or do we call one product at a time ?

Thanks everyone :rolleyes: oneriver

I've found it easiest to use the internet. Searching for lists of products - e.g., gluten-free shampoo - sometimes works. What I normally do is a search for a specific brand name plus the term "gluten-free" - for example: Garnier gluten-free - since if the manufacturer doesn't tell you on their web site which of their products are gluten-free (and I try to buy from companies that do this), chances are someone has already asked and posted the answer.
