Gluten Free Toiletries

Did you know that many soaps, shampoos, deodorants, and toothpastes contain gluten?  Many people with Gluten Intolerances and/or Celiac Disease also have reactions with skincare, cosmetics, and lipsticks.  I would talk to your doctor to see if you have to be careful when it comes to Gluten Free Toiletries. Here is a list of items that we typically see coupons or deals for – there are so many more products that are Gluten-Free out there, so make sure that you are checking the labels!

What ingredients that you want to look for are:

  1. Wheat – May also be listed as Triticum vulgare, hydrolized wheat protein
  2. Oats – May also be listed as Avena Sativa
  3. Barley – May also be listed as Hordeum Vulgare
  4. Natural Vitamin E Oil and Tocopherol Acetate are other hidden sources of Gluten

When in doubt make sure that you contact the company directly!
