There is a big debate about whether skin products with ingredients that Celiacs would normally avoid are safe or not. Specialists say they are safe since Celiac disease isn’t really an allergy – it’s an intolerance that primarily affects the intestinal tract.
However, some people with Celiac disease say that they react to skin products with gluten-containing ingredients. I’m one of them. Are we lying? Maybe we’re crazy? Is it all in our heads?
I’m not a doctor or a specialist, but here’s my two cents: if you’re reacting to skin care products with oats, wheat, or the like, then there is something going on. Pay attention to what your body is saying and switch to something else. Ironically, natural and organic products are the biggest culprits.
Yes, it sucks having to read more labels… But being itchy is way worse!
