Natural/organic Body Care Products?

Recommended Posts

I was loving Avalon Organics, but they will not confirm gluten content, and they appear to use oats in someof their products. :(

I need to find hand/body lotion, shampoo and conditioner that is not full of nasty chemicals and is gluten-free, but I'm a bit overwhelmed. Is there a list somewhere or another thread on this subject that I'm missing?

Also, is Dr. Bronner's soap gluten-free?

TIA!

A lot of Burt's Bees products are gluten free. I've seen a post of all the ones that are on this site.

Giovanni makes gluten free shampoos and conditioners, they have recently come out with some skin care products also but I have not checked those. I like the 50/50 shampoo and the Smooth as Silk conditioner. Badger Balm makes some nice gluten-free soaps also.

Giovanni shampoos and conditioners are really good. Aubrey Organics shampoo is pretty good (the conditioner is not gluten-free). You might also want to try California Baby.

I like Kiss My Face olive oil soap (it has about 3 ingredients)

Coconut oil is my favorite body lotion

I would be surprised if Dr. Bronner's soap contains gluten, but I'm sure the company will let you know if you ask (they seem gluten aware...their food products - Alpsnack Bars - are labeled gluten-free)

ShiKai Everyday Shampoo and Conditioner is gluten-free. Some of their other varities are not.

Jason has a nice liquid shower soap. They will clearly list any gluten.

Badger Balm is completely gluten-free, and they have some nice moisturizing products.

I've been using lotion, shampoo and conditioner from Desert Essence. It's not bad. The lotion scents are a little over the top for me but the coconut one is manageble.

Alba Botanica products are great.

I just bought a new product called Live Clean. However, I'm in Canada and I don't know if it's available outside of Canada.

I use Avalon organicas lavendar facial cleansing milk and day moisturizer without problems. I read the back and there is no offending ingredients. I use Giovanni or Shakai shampoo and conditioner.
