#830593 Myths About Gluten In Everyday Non Edible Objects?

Posted by on 17 October 2012 - 08:55 PM

There is no scientific evidence to back this but I find it interesting that when I have used products with gluten, they cause problems . Not typical problems found when ingesting gluten, but other issues... For example....

Suntan lotion w G = very red sun burn, gluten-free= nice tan
Hand and body lotion w G= sticky skin, gluten-free lotion= soft, silky skin
Shampoo w G= frizzy hair, GFshampoo =soft, silky hair
G mascara= red, itchy eyes, lash breakage, gluten-free mascara = long, lush eyelashes
G eye shadow = red eyes, loses color, gluten-free eyeshadow = clear eyes, longer lasting
Make up w G = pimples, gluten-free make up, clear skin
G soap = dry flaky skin or sticky residue, gluten-free soap normal skin
G laundry soap = itchy clothes or sheets

Does anyone else see weird reactions similar to these?

#748890 Hotels.... Safety...

More and more all the time. My #1 vote goes to Four Seasons Scottsdale (the exec chef there, Chef Mel, daughter has food allergies so he has labeled all menus and staff are very well trained). Was at Kimpton Hotel Solamar last week in San Diego and menu was clearly marked. Kauai Marriott is starting to make changes and found gluten-free snack items in Grand Hyatt San Antonio this week. It's also getting easier to find gluten-free snack items in airports. BTW, my worse vote goes to Ritz Pentegon City, DC. For a nice property, they still don't get it but there are local eateries nearby that have gluten-free menus
