I know I keep reading that gluten cannot be absorbed though the skin, but this is simply NOT TRUE. I have become very very ill and nearly passed out from shampoo, self tanners, and body lotion. They affected by bowels, edema and I felt like crap, like post flu for three days, sometimes four or five.  Only AFTER researching and getting ill did I discover the products have gluten right on the label.. I simply did not think it matters, but it DOES for ME!!! My friend is gluten sensitive and became ill from the same self tanner and we never communicated until afterwards.
Please don’t believe everything you read. Physicians only know research, and do not have celiac disease. Yes, I am very sensitive, but small amounts do damag!

I think what the article is saying is that it isn't physically possible for gluten to go through the skin.  It is bigger than the natural holes in the skin.  It isn't "research"  - This is just an anatomical fact.  

 

And there is the part that the autoimmune reaction occurs when gluten is in the small intestine..... So going through the skin isn't going to put gluten in the intestines.  It isn't "research" -  This is just an anatomical fact.
