Hello All!

I have a question about these lotions. I received a TON for Christmas and looked at the label this morning and one of the ingredients is oats (there is some fancy word for it which I cannot remember). Anyway...is it OK to use these lotions?

Thanks! Gwen :rolleyes:

I definitely would NOT use them. They could very easily get into your mouth and cause a reaction. I exchanged all of my lotions that I got for Christmas for body wash. Most of the body washes don't contain gluten. I think some of the body creams and body butters may also be gluten free, but I'm not sure.

I use products with oats on my arms and legs, but not face and hands.

You could return them and exchange them for the body creams which DON"T have any gluten in them and are even MORE moisturizing.

I wrote to them and this was the repsonse. They said that the following ingredients had gluten:

Wheat--------Triticum Vulgare

Oat------------Avena Sativa

Barley--------Hordeum Distichon

Rye-----------Secale Cereale

Soy-----------Glycina soja

Well, the problem with the avena on the list is that we just don't know enough about oats to know if it is an official problem for Celiacs. Some researchers say that pure uncontaminated oats are safe, but some say that Celiacs may still cross react, etc. So, technically, we don't know if their oats contain gluten.

Also----soy should not contain gluten....

I believe that I was getting mildly ill (gas) from oat extract in my sunscreen. I stopped using it and I now use gluten-free suncreens.
