images (3)Skin hypersensitivity is just one of the side effects of a gluten intolerance or allergy. Fortunately it’s getting easier to find gluten-free skincare products. Manufacturers are now calling out their products as gluten-free and retail consolidators often have information about which of the products they carry are gluten-free. (Thank you Sephora!)

Doing some research on chemical ingredient names of soy and gluten made us realize how many skincare products contain hidden soy and gluten derivatives.

Tocopherol, commonly known as vitamin E, is an important ingredient to take note of while searching for suitable products as it’s often derived from soy or gluten. Another key ingredient is glycerine, which is in almost everything! Although sometimes both tocopherol and glycerine can come from other sources, soy and gluten are there more often than not.

Who knew?! Do you have trusted skincare product brands you rely on?
