I'll be getting my nail technician's license in a couple months - I'm not worried about polish, glue, powders, resins, etc. But I do need a nail oil, lotion, cuticle remover, callous remover, and scrub that are gluten free - I am getting slight reactions from working with these things all day in school. I'm trying to wash my hands tons, but it just seems to happen anyway. Does anyone have any ideas? I've checked CND, OPI, and Essie oils, and all contain vitamin E, which I understand is often wheat-derived.

Call or email the companies. I thought I saw that OPI was gluten-free but check to be sure?

Can you wear gloves?

I can, but if I can find gluten free products, it'd be easier (a lot of the work is done by feel for me, and the gloves make that more difficult), and I could provide a less worrisome service to gluten free clients. I'll email OPI, Qtica, & CND about their stuff, but I was hoping to maybe reach another gluten free nail tech/nail enthusiast with experience. :D

Thank you for the super-quick response!

As a nail tech generally I wear gloves for the same reason as bio sculpture cuticle products contain gluten.

I have been assured that all Jessica products are gluten free--- I'm uk based!

Good luck

Thank you! I may just have to give in and go with the gloves. We'll see.

So far, OPI is the first to respond:

The following OPI products contain hydrolyzed wheat and/or oat protein, which may have traces of gluten. These products should definitely be avoided by anyone with gluten sensitivity:

Acrylic Nail Base Coat

Feet
