The Value of Gluten-Free Skin Care Products

Skin Care

In honor of Gluten-Free Month this October, we wanted to discuss the story behind all of our products being gluten-free and why it’s important to us.

Why Gluten-Free Skin Care?

First, what is gluten? Gluten is a protein found in wheat and related grains like rye, barley and oats. A gluten-free skin care routine is important for those that are gluten sensitive or intolerant because everything you put onto your skin can be absorbed into the body. If you are eliminating gluten from your diet, you should also avoid it being in your skin care.

So what is the connection between gluten and our skin?

Whatever our bodies view as an allergen, whether it’s dairy, nuts or gluten, the main response is the same – inflammation. For individuals with a gluten sensitivity, the presence of gluten (whether eaten or used topically) activates the immune system and can trigger inflammation of all kinds including acne, eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis, etc. This can also cause skin to appear red or irritated.

Solution: DERMA E

All DERMA E products are 100% gluten-free. Whether you are sensitive to gluten or not, you can be sure that all of our products are safe and effective.
