Gluten free face washes and moisturizers?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey, everyone! What do you guys use as face washes and moisturizers? I've emailed La Roche as well as CeraVe and both have given open ended questions. Also, yes I know I don't eat the soap nor am I worried about skin absorbing it, but things like sweating, touching food after, etc. all can do it and I get sick from trace amounts. I've tried Everyone face wash recently and was disappointed (like all of their products tbh)

I just use Dove Soap.  My teen uses some tea tree oil soap clearly labeled gluten free to help with oil.    I used to buy Cerave, but now use a Walmart knock-off (made in Canada) to save money.  It is a body lotion, but really skin is skin.  Maybe a little thinner on the face,  but still skin.     Cerave  used to have a gluten free facial sunscreen, but not anymore (at least when I last checked).    You really have to read labels as ingredients can change.

Yeah, it's annoying how some times good products change! I've used Palmer's body wash and lotion for the past five years but have just wanted a change. Also, used Jack Black for two years but it's not really improved my skin, so I'm looking for improvement there. These "natural" soaps I've tried have either smelled horribly or were drying. Native soap has been a really good body wash though, just pricy, so I'm still debating them.

Dove. I can use their soaps and shampoo. Andalou naturals gave me a gluten reaction. I can use the face oil from derma_e with no reaction. Badger balm hand cream is fine for me, and their lip balm is certified gluten free. I haven't tried badger balm face creams or toners. Desert essence jojoba oil and tea tree was also fine. I'm hyper sensitive. I'm looking for hair styling products. Not interested in people trawling out the usual can't be absorbed via the skin. It gets on hands, and in mouths easy enough. I've no desire to be sick.

I HATE when people do that condescending "YouRe NoT GoInG tO EaT iT" or "It CaNt Be AbSorbEd". If it's ever on my skin, anywhere, I want it to be gluten free. I really want to try La Roche Posay Hydrating facial cleanser but I'm still waiting on an answer. I think I read Desert Essence has a high pH and after the way Dr Bronner's was, I worry it'd destroy the skin too. Had high hopes I'd found a grail when I got Bronner's lol "This will do everything!" Boy was I wrong.

Are you using straight Dr. Bronnners? I don't use it straight with water.  I find it too harsh for the face. 

I use kirk's soap for my body. I make my own laundry detergent and face soap. I stopped using dryer sheets altogether. I saw improvement in my son's and husband's skin as my immune system revamped our personal care.

I do use liquid Dr. Bronners  as my base, but many people add oils or essential oils , purified water etc to balance the Bronners. I researched library books, otc products, and natural recipes online then experimented.

For a time I made my own toothpaste. I then reintroduced toothpaste use squiggle then desert essence as I had difficulty finding squiggle. I still make my own mouth rinse.

It may take a while to find what works for you. Overtime in my experience one can reintroduce otc products or products with more ingredients as the immune system settles down. Often times by then you master the craft and stick with it . Or return to an old fav or a new better fit product.

Good luck

Did you ever find a way for Dr Bronner's to not destroy your face? (like a dilution ratio). It's annoying because everyone always tells me "no matter how much you dilute the pH is too high", and the only time I see someone say it's not is when it's the company itself (but they're trying to sell me something) but I'd love a jack of all trades with natural ingredients

Andalou is all I use, I highly recommend. I'm 63 and people think I'm 40. I was picking up a prescription and the pharmacist asked if it was for my mother. I said no, it's for me. She about passed out. Gluten free. I order from their web site. Sign up for their newsletter to get discounts. It seems a little expensive, but you use a lot less than cheaper products, it lasts awhile. I don't love their shower gel, so sometimes I use Philosophy brand for that, which is not labeled gluten-free, but company claims no gluten ingredients and I've never had a problem and I'm very sensitive.  Also Savonnarie brand has gluten-free body lotion and cleansers.

Which Andalou products do you use? Any partiular benefits to each?

I have DH and am very sensitive. I use Andalou shampoos and conditioners as well as their facial products with no issues. I like the ones for sensitive skin and have used their anti-aging line. I really enjoy the Cocoa Mask. Smells so good and leaves my skin nice and soft. I also use Cerave. I like the tub for the body and use their Facial Moisturizing Lotion with a broad spectrum sunscreen. It is the only sunscreen that doesn't make break out.
