I'm all about using 100% GLUTEN-FREE products on the daily. Having Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity means my body wants ZERO gluten or wheat products IN it or ON it! So today, let's talk about our toiletries!


I was over the moon excited to find out my fav shampoo and conditioner are not only wheat-free, they are cruelty-free and vegan! BONUS! Everybody wins! Check your products here:


Did you know Celiac disease and non-celiac gluten sensitivity can affect far more than just your digestive system — they also may affect your skin. Around 15% to 25% of people with celiac suffer from dermatitis herpetiformis, a rash considered the skin manifestation of celiac disease. -


According to what we know right now, gluten containing skincare products may only affect those actually allergic to wheat and not necessarily those with a gluten-related disorder. However, you know your body best, if using such products causes itching, burning, rashes, etc. then try removing them for a week and see how you do.

NOTE: Any products that could be ingested or absorbed through the mucosa in your mouth could potentially be problematic for those with a known gluten-related disorder like Celiac Disease and Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity. So lipsticks, lip balms, toothpastes, facewash, mouthwash, body lotion, etc. could all potentially leave trace amounts of gluten in your body. You may be thinking, "But a trace amount... Should I really be worried?" The simple answer is an emphatic YES! And here's why... Trace amounts add up. It's the accumulative affect over time that leads to a slow burn in your body's inflammatory fire (your chronic underlying symptoms that don't seem to go away for very long). In fact, 50 mg of gluten (the size of a tiny breadcrumb) can induce widespread, systemic inflammation for 6-8 weeks! Trace amounts in our toiletries added to the trace amounts in our gluten-free food products (in the US, products must be less than 20 parts per million of gluten to be labeled gluten-free and if to be labeled Certified Gluten-free, must be less than 10 ppm - bottom line, there is gluten in your gluten-free products and if you are consuming more than the standard serving, guess what? MORE TRACE AMOUNTS adding to your inflammatory load!
