I bought a new bottle of moisturizer and I noticed that it has wheat protein in it - is it ok to use since I am not ingesting it??

jenni, I wouldn't touch that moisturizer with a ten-foot pole! It's true that people don't (deliberately) ingest personal hygiene and cosmetic products, but do you apply them with your fingers? And do you wash your hands after EVERY time you touch your face, to prevent accidentally getting traces of the moisturizer on your lips, or on the food you are about to eat? Or do you ever sweat profusely, which can cause lotions to run and end up on your lips? I just don't think it's worth the risk to use non-gluten-free products, when there are safe alternatives out there! I hope you can find one without too much trouble.

Thanks! I read about that particular product and how it helps dark circles and wrinkles...of which I have both. I was disappointed to see wheat on the label when I got home. Guess I'm back to square one, looking tired and old but not contaminated with wheat!

It may also get absorbed through the skin. Watch out for hair products as well.

Gluten doesn't absorb from your skin into your intestines. The only way you would have problems is if you have DH, or if you get the lotion on your hands and then put your hands in your mouth etc. It is just best to stay away from it for those reasons.

Thanks, Jessica, that's good to know. I guess I thought if you have gluten intolerance you would automatically get DH if the skin were exposed to wheat. I've had skin problems, itchy eruptions my whole life prior to having the intestinal problems.

One shouldn't assume.....thanks.

    • Hi Ennis and thank you for your reply.  When I make my own muffins I usually use psyllium husk as you recommend.  I hope I've learned my lesson and don't buy anything with xanthan gum again.  As  a gluten free bakery owner would you say that xanthan gum is rather high on the list of ingredients for the Canyon bread?  To me it seems to be and because my reaction seems quite strong this time I'm wondering if it's because there's a high amount of the xg. Thank you for the link to the bread, I'm glad to see the cinnamon raisin is also low in sodium, something else that I have to be careful of. Thanks, Jane
    • Does anyone have a good cheese straw recipe?  My old one does not work with gluten-free flour.
    • Wow Ennis - that's really helpful.  I do miss flapjacks - these recipes sound great.  Yes please - a link for the flapjack especially.
    • Hmm you need to start a new topic you just posted on a thread from 2016. TO answer your question yes, you need to be eating gluten at least 2 weeks prior to a scope.

      As to why...most doctors are frankly uneducated about this disease. There is no money for them in it either as it has to be treated by diet alone. I might suggest looking up the newbie101 section.....3 days in..is not much. It can take weeks to months for your antibodies to go down from a exposure. A crumb can set it back off if you have been gluten free for awhile. Plus I doubt your eating 100% gluten free. Forgive the slap in the face, but have use been using the same condiment jars with gluten residue in them? Same toasters? Same cooking pans and pots? What about that glutened colander?" Been using it to wash you gluten free pasta and veggies? Are you sure your condiments, spices, snacks, etc are gluten free? There is a HUGE learning curve to this disease and CC is everywhere til your set up for it and used to label reading and honestly most restaurants can not do gluten-free without CC issues. If you need help finding foods, supplements or other information me and others will be glad to help guide you and make the transition as simple as possible.

    • I know one member will come back here soon and tell you it is possible with hashi etc.  I know with my Celiac, UC, and some other issues I have gotten pretty damn good over the past 4-5years. Started putting on weight and body building. I work out daily, power walk over 14miles a day. And the diseases have made me strive to become a baker/chef that cooks specialty grain free meals, baked goods, etc. I even havea vegan line.

      Try keeping a food dairy many find we have other things that can cause inflammatory reactions like dairy, oats, nightshades etc. I turned to a paleo/keto diet myself as carbs/sugar/starches all aggravate my UC.

      You will see the light once you get down your perfect regime, you will slip but, sometimes also and need to get back on that boat....I myself just got glutened bit over a week ago by a gluten-free food that well....was not. Anyway, you just roll with the punches and keep it up looking for that light and going for it.
