Best Gluten-Free Cosmetic Brands of 2015
Maintaining a gluten-free lifestyle can extend deeper than just what you eat. Getting exposed to gluten can happen long before we eat breakfast. A large number of popular shampoo brands contain gluten. Don’t think so? Start reading the labels and you will be surprised to find that gluten is hiding in just about every bottle. Common ingredient names are easy to find; however, manufactures often use scientific names like triticum vulgare (wheat), hordeum vulgare (barley), secale cereale (rye), or avena sativa (oats). Even more complicated names can include stearyldimoniumhydroxypropyl (hydrolyzed wheat protein), hydroxypropyltrimonium (hydrolyzed wheat protein), amino peptide complex, hydrolyzed malt extract, phytosphingosine extract, samino peptide complex, cyclodextrin, prolamine, beta glucan. What about makeup and lotions? These too can contain multiple sources of gluten that can migrate into your mouth. The list of the best gluten-free cosmetic brands have been known to keep ingredients simple and easy to understand. Please read each label and or contact the brand if you have any questions or concerns. Formulations can change and we want you to stay as safe of possible.
