Healing Garden... Safe?

Recommended Posts

Okay, so when I first went gluten-free, I just worried about food. It was too much to try to tackle everything else in my life. Several weeks ago, I switched my shampoo and conditioner... I had known right from the start that I needed to get rid of them (it was a terrible loss after 15 years of the same product!!!), and it was wonderful.

ANYhow.... now it's time for skin products. My skin isn't right yet after 2+ months gluten free and 3+ weeks of safe shampoo. I know I may still be purging the poison from me, BUT I fear it could be the products I'm using (and have a large stash of!!!). I can't see anything obvious by checking the ingredients, and the website doesn't seem to have a convenient "Contact Us" link to email them, so before I resort to mail or whatever, do any of you know about the Healing Garden products. I use several different scents of lotions and body sprays (which I looooove!!!!!!!!!!!!)--- does anybody already know offhand about their products being safe?

Thank you!!!

I don't know about Healing Garden, but I was wondering what shampoo and conditioner you changed to that is "safe." I need something better.

BTW: I use Neutrogena Emulsion lotion (gluten free) and love it.

I forget offhand what the name of the shampoo is (I'm at work!), but it's some herbal stuff that I got at the natural food store. I've heard that some mainstream products like Garnier Fructis are safe, but I tried that a few years ago for non-gluten-related reasons and hated it. I have really long, thick hair that borders on being wavy, so I'm pretty picky about what I use. ;)

There are a number of mainstream brands that are gluten-free. Fructis, Pantene and Themasilk come to mind. I think Dove is also and Suave. Treseme is NOT gluten-free.

The shampoo I switched to is Nature's Gate.

Healing Garden...? Anyone?

Or pointers on what to include in a letter requesting info?

I was using Natures Gate Organics Fruit Blend Shampoo but realized it had Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein and Wheat Starch in it. I was using the Asian Pear and Red Tea and I really liked it. But come to think of it it did make my scalp dry and itchy. :( Which are you using?

If you have DH, you may find that it takes months for it to heal. Also, taking as much iodine out of your diet as possible, until you heal, will help as the iodine is part of the reaction that causes DH.
