Will my skin breakout if I use topical products like shampoos/lotions that have gluten in them?

Gluten must be ingested to be cause for concern for someone with celiac disease. We still recommend those with celiac disease avoid contact with gluten, especially with products that have the potential to be ingested. Small amounts of gluten can be found in many cosmetics, lotions and shampoos. Avoid product ingredients that literally say “wheat,” “rye,” “malt” or “barley.” July, 2012
