You're better off with a gluten-free sunscreen, though it's not 100% necessary. The gluten molecule is too large to be absorbed through the skin. If, however, you have sunscreen on your hands and then eat something w/o first washing them, you could get contaminated. So with children, it's probably advisable.

I reacted to Neutrogena suncreen and I didn't realize that it had gluten in it.

celiac3270 is right, but if you put suncreen on your face and then sweat... it will go into your mouth. That's how I got sick (I bought Neutrogena suncreen for my face). I use Banana Boat with no problems.

Thanks! We had a beautiful day here in Iowa today and I took my little one out without sunscreen for the first time in her life because I wasn't sure. Now tomorrow she can be safe from gluten AND the sun! Thanks!

Only some Neutrogena products are gluten-free. I posted under products a while ago a list of gluten free products by them..take a look at it to make sure :D
