Gluten-Free Beauty Products – Novelty or Necessity?
It seems like the world is doing away with gluten, with whole sections of supermarkets dedicated to gluten free products. There are even entirely gluten free companies, providing the market with a wide range of food and beauty products. But where did this gluten free mania come from?
In recent years, we’ve seen a rise in diagnoses of gluten sensitivities and celiac disease. Due to more available information on the symptoms of these conditions, awareness has grown and more people are getting diagnosed more often. With all this new information and widespread knowledge, gluten free products have exploded onto the market.
Having access to gluten free food and beauty products is important for people with gluten sensitivities including celiac disease, as they would otherwise be very restricted in which products they can consume. Providing gluten free alternatives means accessibility, choice and safer options for those who need them.
What is Gluten?
Gluten is the mixture of two proteins that are found in cereal grains such as wheat. It’s the protein responsible for the elastic nature of dough. You’ll find gluten in any product that contains wheat, such as pasta, bread, oats, cereals and even beer and food flavourings.
Is there gluten in beauty products?
Many beauty products do include gluten and it can be difficult to decipher which products do and which don’t. There can be hidden gluten in beauty products that you aren’t initially aware of, as the written ingredients may only list chemical names which aren’t always the easiest to understand.

Who needs Gluten free face Products?
You may be wondering, can gluten be absorbed through skin? The answer is no, it can only enter your blood system by being ingested. Even if you experience a gluten sensitivity that results in a rash or skin irritation, this can only be caused by ingesting gluten.
As gluten is only dangerous if swallowed, it is important for people suffering from celiac disease to only make use of gluten-free face products. In the event that any of your gluten-free face product is accidentally ingested or incidentally wiped into your mouth, you can rest assured you will not face any problems reacting to gluten.
