As gluten and gluten related health issues are increasingly a greater challenge amongst our population, many are turning to gluten free beauty products as well. As skin is the largest organ, it is said that some 60% of what is applied to our skin may enter the bloodstream and cause sensitivities. That’s a serious amount of crap in our systems if we are not careful what we use! While some may be more sensitive to gluten than others, it’s not always easy to tell which products contain wheat or other grain glutens and which products are totally gluten-poopin’-free.
Gluten is not limited wheat, as it is also present in rye, barley and even some oats. It may also be present in soy sauce, other foods and your cosmetics! For those sensitive to gluten (a good part of the population) consuming it causes damage to the the nutrient absorbing villi in the small intestines eventually causing nutritional deficiencies. Though picking a gluten free product may seem as simple as checking the ingredients list for “wheat” or “gluten”, unfortunately you can be deceived. That’s some serious bull and many suffer from side effects as a result! If you have celiac disease or wheat or gluten sensitivities you need to avoid this crap!
