Hi there. I use a moisturizer, lip plumper and enzyme peel serum from Isomers laboratories. Would anybody look at the ingredients and see if anything sends up a red flag. I started entering each ingredient in google and my eyes are starting to cross. So far all looks ok to me. It's those obscure ingredients that get me. If I put anything with wheat, rye, oat, barley derived ingredients on my face or scalp, I break out in horrible acne on my face and scalp. Ugh!

Thank you

Tracy

I would call the company again and tell them you are not a chemist and want a definate answer. The person you spoke with basically blew you off. If on the second call you can not get a firm answer return the products or try using a very small amount on the inside of your forearm or thigh, both senstive areas. Use the products there for at least three or four days and watch for a reaction. If you choose to do this make sure you test each product seperately.

I don't see gluten, but what I do see is propylene glycol and methyl and propo parabens. These are not only toxic to our bodies, but are common skin allergens. I am allergic to propylene glycol. I had huge rashy blisters under my arm for a year(and was using a so called natural product). One day while looking at the labels of the diff. natural deodorants at the local natural food store, I noticed they all shared that ingredient. I noticed one said no propylene glycol. I decided to try it. The rash started to clear in days!!

Thank you for your reply. I don't seem to have this reaction at all. I've used these products for years... but, I've apparently had gluten issues for years, too, so I'm checking all my regular products.

It's distressing to think about what is toxic for our bodies... when you are "new" to the concept. I will watch for reactions to those things and actually forwarded your reply to my Aunt who has reactions to deodorant and can't wear it. I HAVE limited the use of most "products" on my skin/face/hair. It feels so much better not to have an itchy scalp!

Thanks again.

Tracy

if you have multiple sensitivities, also consider food and/or vitamin inter-actions.

I went about 2 yrs where anything but the salt deodorants gave me a rash

Then I stopped taking vitamin supplements (okay, not a step I'd recommend to everyone) and suddenly could tolerate 'regular' (eg chemical) deodorant - as long as it's fragrance free!

Sunblock I've given up - between fragrance, gluten, and breaking out from oiliness. I rely on sunblock clothing and broad hats.

Once you find products that you tolerate, it is worth the search...good luck :)

Of course read the label each time you purchase, the 'improvements' don't always meet with your needs.


gluten-free (except unintentionally) from 7 Dec 2007

3 gluten-free cousins and counting (1 gold standard, 1 pos blood/no endo, 1 self/dietary diagnosed)

suspect mother was celiac (also, cousin suspects my mother's twin is celiac)

Feb 08 testing 'normal range' for gluten antibodies, IBD and food allergies

Staying off gluten - dietary reaction is compelling for me!

"Hi, I'm the gluten-free diner at your table."
