Gluten in beauty products?

Answered on August 19, 2014

I've been looking around for an organic hair pomade/texturizer for my pixie cut. The best one I saw so far has wheat germ oil as an ingredient. Do you think applying gluten topically would give me the same problems as ingesting it?

(Unless of course you have a skin allergy to it)

I would avoid Aveeno anyway as it contains Sodium Laurel Sulphate (SLS), as most commercial creams do. There are some great brands at the health food store. I love Alba Botanica and Welleda.

If you are very sensitive to it, it could. I read here that someone felt noticeably better after she stopped using Aveeno's body lotion with oatmeal.

Strictly from the stand point of causing issues with digestion, etc, no, most likely it will not cause you issues.
