Gluten Free Bar Soap - preferably scented

My favorite is/was Roger and Gallet, but I think that it might contain gluten (hard to find out). Does anyone have recommendations? Thanks!

Are there ingredients to read? They are usually very proud to call out wheat germ oil or oats ( tho that may not really be a wheat issue).

I don't have the soap with me now so I can't check the label. Looking on line - nothing.

Most of the time I just use plain baking soda (yes seriously- it's a great and gentle exfoliate!)  But what you want is plain soap, as in, the real thing.   Ingredients to look for are sodium tallowate (that's beef tallow, chemically changed by lye), sodium cocoate (coconut oil chemically modified by lye) and another ingredient would be Olive oil- I don't remember the "ate" part, but they all start with sodium.  These are the basic ingredients in bar soap.  Lye is the cause of the saponification process, and when that process is complete the lye goes away, leaving sodium whatever-ate.   If you just stick to plain old soap, you can't really go wrong, as far as gluten is concerned.   I hope that helps.
