I also agree with mushroom & rosetapper23 & ciamarie!
Another reason not to use gluten containing topical ingredients is that Vit E is absorbed through the skin. Now if that Vit E happens to be wheat derived then what do you think is going to happen?
I have dh ~~~ I know that NOW. But for 7 or 8 years I have not been able to wear makeup of any kind. It would itch me so! And my face, particularly my eyes would swell up. I would wear it, come home & right away wash it off ~~ still had reactions. Tried 20 or 30 products ~~~ with the same results. Guess what? Now that I found out I am celiac & with dh & looked for gluten-free makeup. I found Afterglow (online) which is gluten free ~~~ pricey but gluten-free. I tried it. I'm a very happy girl! For the first time in years & years I can wear makeup. It's like a miracle.
OH MY GOSH!! I used to use certain makeups that would make my face itch and turn bright red and I just wanted it off asap! I wonder if it could have been something with the gluten...however, now I wear numerous different kinds. So is most foundation contain gluten?
