Is Cetyl Alcohol gluten-free? I have been searching the web and have gotten conflicting information. :blink:

Cetyl alcohol is a chemical.

So yes, it is gluten free.

People who suffer from eczema can be sensitive to this chemical.

Are you referring to it's use in hair conditioners?

I have become pretty good at these things because I researched a lot and I am married to a chemist. He's very handy to have around. :lol:

If you are worried about hair conditioners containing "hydrolyzed wheat protein", the label will state that ingredient.

Those products have long ingredient lists, don't they!

Does that help? :)

You are a lucky lady indeed Irish, married to a chemist :-)

I did not think it did, but reading a another Celiac Blog they had listed hairsprays from Suave and another company, and they claim the companies stated that Cetyl Alcohol "might"contain gluten. This confused me.

I have just bought Suave shampoo and conditioner to try for the first time, and when I saw that the conditioner contained "cetyl alcohol" figured I would get some straight answers here.

Thank you so much for your clarification :-) I used it last night, and have had no problems so far.

Have a great day,

Suave is safe as far as I know. I have used it.

Cetyl alcohol is often derived from coconut in hair products.
