I replied and lost it somehow, so here we go again!

Tom's of Maine toothpaste...there are others gluten free, but I appreciate their upfrontness about gluten on their website, and feel safe using their toothpaste.

Johnson's Baby Shampoo...I found it listed as safe on some celiac list somewhere on the web. (sorry, I can't remember where)\

I bought cases and cases of some olive-oil based bar soap I found at Costco, JUST because the ingredients seemed basic enough and easy enough to feel safe with, so I've probably got a lifetime supply stashed.

I'm still searching for gluten free lotions (affordable ones!!!)...I would like a hand lotion and facial wrinkle preventive lotion/cream, but I go without for now, because I can't find one guaranteed to be gluten free. I love feeling good and won't take any chances on jeopardizing my health, so until I get some better information, I go without those products.

Suave and Dove will not hide gluten in their products. I use Suave body lotions (I love the new Rose one and the Lavender) and Dove shampoos and conditioners.

I have also used the Giovanni Hair Products and those were quite good but I haven't bought in a while so recheck before using.

The Garneir Nutritioneste product line of skin stuff is also for the most part gluten-free. I haven't checked everthing but I use the facial wash and the facial wash with the scrubby beads and also the moisterizer without SPF. A nice product line.

I live in Colorado (very dry climate). I use Vaseline lotions - the aloe (green bottle) lotion in the summer and the shea butter (I think) brown bottle in the winter. They also will not hide gluten - they are made by uniliver I believe.

Of course I'm not sure if this all applies to the UK, sorry! :huh:

Of the three, shampoo is the most likely to have gluten. The only toothpaste I've ever heard having gluten is Sensodyne, and I'm not sure that's really true. I don't know of any soaps with gluten.
