Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Been having a hard time finding an SPF I like. One was recommended and looks good (Rohto Skin Aqua UV Super Moisture Milk SPF50+ PA++++) but its from Japan and I've had problems getting in contact with the manufacturer. I do have a list of ingredients (below) -- does this appear to be gluten free? Thanks for any help here!

Water, cyclopentasiloxane, zinc oxide, ethylhexyl methoxycinnamate, butylene glycol, diethylhexyl succinate, polymethylsilsesquioxane, hydrated silica, glycerin, lauroyl lysine, lauryl PEG-9 polydimethylsiloxyethyl dimethicone, diethylamino hydroxybenzoyl hexyl benzoate, sodium hyaluronate, acrylates copolymer, hydrogen dimethicone, phenoxyethanol, triethoxysilylethyl polydimethylsiloxyethyl hexyl dimethicone, methylparaben, disodium EDTA, sodium acetylated hyaluronate, hydrolyzed collagen, arginine, bis-ethylhexyl hydroxydimethoxy benzylmalonate

Looks gluten free to me.  Here is a list of ingredients that contain gluten:

 Remember, you really have to ingest it to cause a celiac disease flare up.  But I avoid gluten in personal care products because I am have been rewired to look for gluten.  Just gives me piece of mind which can be priceless.  Why support manufacturers who do not care about me?

Thank you cyclinglady, and I appreciate you and all the other contributors here that share your insight and experience. I'm much the same with products, although I'm extra cautious regarding sunscreen as I get sweaty during the summertime and I don't want the extra worry regarding my products. I have DH as well, which just seems to aggravate everything.

I use a zinc oxide product on my face with added zinc oxide on my nose and cheeks for cycling.  The more chemical sunscreens can really burn my eyes.  A sweatband helps too.  I use regular chemical sunscreen (based on Consumer Reports recommendations) for the rest of my body.  

While gardening or walking I cover up (e.g. hat, sun shirt)  after getting some sun for Vitamin D.

My dermatologist finally talked me into buying EltaMD UV Daily Broad Spectrum SPF40 for my face.  It's expensive, but lasts a long time if you just use it on your face. The big deal here is when and if it sweats into your eyes, it doesn't sting.  At all.  I'm very fair and it's a game-changer as I would avoid using sunscreen on my forehead before this - the sting was just too difficult.  The only ingredients are Zinc Oxide and Octinoxate.

I have used the EltaMD UV Daily Broad Spectrum SPF40 on my face for years.  I haven’t had any issues, and I am pretty sensitive. One word of caution, not all of the EltaMd products are gluten free, so be careful.  BTW, it does a great job and doesn’t feel heavy on your face.  I wear it underneath my makeup everyday.

Thanks for the heads up - I didn't know not all of the EltaMD products wouldn't be gluten free.  Do you know what isn't?  I just ordered an SPF 30 sunscreen too and now I'm worried about that one...

I’ve always gone by the EltaMD website product descriptions.  I did find this website that lets you filter by gluten free.  It shows more items being gluten free than the EltaMD website.  Not sure if EltaMD is inconsistent in their descriptions vs. this other website.
