Olay Quencher Body Lotion

Recommended Posts

I spoke with Olay this week 10/30 and they advised that this product is generally gluten free, however the fragrance could have traces of gluten. they advise that fragrance could always have traces of gluten; they recommend "fragrance free" products ----- not unscented as unscented may have a fragrance which acts as a "masking" agent and could have traces of gluten in it.

Anyway, the search is on for fragrance free body lotion (also must be free of natural herbs due to herb allergy).

Just wanted to share this info about Olay and the difference between fragrance free and unscented products.


Husband has Celiac Disease and

Husband misdiagnosed for 27 yrs -

The misdiagnosis was: IBS or colitis

Mis-diagnosed from 1977 to 2003 by various gastros including one of the largest,

most prestigious medical groups in northern NJ which constantly advertises themselves as

being the "best." This GI told him it was "all in his head."

Serious Depressive state ensued

Finally Diagnosed with celiac disease in 2003

Other food sensitivities: almost all fruits, vegetables, spices, eggs, nuts, yeast, fried foods, roughage, soy.

Needs to gain back at least 25 lbs. of the 40 lbs pounds he lost - lost a great amout of body fat and muscle

Developed neuropathy in 2005

Now has lymphadema 2006It is my opinion that his subsequent disorders could have been avoided had he been diagnosed sooner by any of the dozen or so doctors he saw between 1977 to 2003

I use Neutragena Fregrance Free Emulsion Lotion - make sure you get the kind called "emulsion" (kind of pricey). I have been using it for over 20 years and absolutely can't live without it! I have super dry skin. It works on the body and face as well. When I found out a year ago about the Celiac diet my first concern was this lotion. I called the company and they said it was gluten free - Thank God! I tell anyone who will listen that it is the best lotion in the world. Hope this helps.
