Aluminum Starch In Cosmetics

Recommended Posts

This probably isn't a new question, but I'm having a hard time finding a definitive answer. I have a lot of trouble finding cosmetics I can use, based on multiple allergies, as well as the wheat/gluten problem. Cosmeticians will say that Aluminum Starch is derived from corn, but that doesn't really answer the question. Modified Corn Starch is derived from corn too, but can have wheat ingredients added into it later. SO: does anyone here know if Aluminum Starch is a completely gluten-free ingredient. It is in some Nivea products that I would like to try, but won't unless I know this one item is safe. Thanks!

Where did that idea come from?

Diagnosis by biopsy of practically non-existent villi; gluten-free since July 2000. I was retested five years later and the biopsy was normal. You can beat this disease!
