Blondie what is the name of the soap? It appears to be coconut oil based and safe but you really have to be a chemist sometimes to figure things out. Some brands will clearly list gluten ingredients like Dove, Unilever, Giovanni, Suave and more. Also a good way to try and check any individual product or companies gluten statis is to put the name of the product in a search engine and add the word gluten. Often the companies site will pop up in one of the first links or you will find other discussions that will answer the question.

The brand is Dove :)

I've been trying to find out about all this too - I've been reacting badly to something lately - no gluten in my diet, so worried I'm becoming senstive to something else. I put on loads of weight when I react, so I'm eating like an anoreic rabbit and look like an obese hippo! It's very annoying - I have gone up two whole dress sizes in a week.

Anyway, I thought before I excluded all milk, soya, diet coke and sunflower oil from my diet (narrowed these down to possible culprits) I thought I'd better double check that nothing I eat has gluten in - and then my cleaning products suddenly occured to me, so I'm double checking. Dove may mark 'gluten' on a label, but they don't mark when a product is actualy gluten free, which makes me suspicious.

@Alaskaguy With regard to the timing, I think that everyone is a bit different! I used to have a shorter time to onset when I was first diagnosed (within 24h). As time has gone on, and I've glutened myself less and less, I have noticed that the time gets a bit longer.  Recent history seems to matter a bit too - if I've been glutened recently and then get glutened again, the rash will show up faster on the second round. For example, in the last 3 weeks I got slightly glutened by inadvertent
