Could Gluten-Free Bath and Body Product Labels Be the Next Trend?
While gluten-free food is taking off in the U.S., some companies should consider putting this designation on bath and body product labels as well. While Celiac disease is relatively common phenomenon at this point, there are some people who aren't comfortable applying gluten products topically either. Skin care ingredient product stickers often list gluten ingredients, but they have names like "hydrolyzed wheat protein or Sodium Lauroyl Oat Amino Acids, according to The International Dermal Institute. As the trend takes off, companies may start making more skincare products that are gluten free.
Use Custom Labels and Stickers to Communicate Gluten-Free Items
More body products are removing gluten ingredients from recipes and custom labels and stickers. Some experts still dispute whether gluten applied to the skin can activate Celiac disease, The Los Angeles Times reported. The Celiac Society says that gluten molecules are too large to be absorbed through the skin, but consumers often disagree. In addition, Dermatologist Jenny Kim, associate professor of clinical medicine at UCLA said that people with less healthy skin may have a problem with molecules getting through. The problem will need to be studied more before scientists know for certain.
