Hello,

What brand(s) of gluten free soaps and shampoo/conditioner do you all use on your little ones? The previous poster really got me thinking because my daughters, who have been gluten-free since June, have a horrible itchy, red, bumpy, bleeding rash on their arms, legs, a little on face (not bad) and a little on their tummies. One has it much much worse than the other. The doctor tried to say it was maybe eczema but they haven't had that since they were 4 months old and they are 9 now.

I am wondering if maybe it's our soaps or something.

I know you can find lists of gluten-free beauty products but I thought it may be nice to ask parents what they use on their children.

Thanks so much in advance!

I am not a dermatologist, nor as a small soapcrafter do I claim medical advice....but I can as a mother try to advise...

They might be reacting to gluten, but there are also additives to body washes and shampoos that can trigger eczema. Have they used a new product recently? You might try a glycerin soap without any fragrance, artificial detergent foamers (SLS or SLES), or colorant.

BEWARE of shampoos containing SLS or SLES those are detergent foamers....try a health food store to purchase shampoos or hand washes without fragrance or detergents...

Clearly Natural BAR SOAPS DO NOT CONTAIN GLUTEN (Clearly Natural is not my soap, I would not advertise on the forum)

And they offer an unscented bar....

This is from their website......
