It seems like everybody has a new buzz word or ingredient that you should be avoiding. One year it was soy, another year it was high fructose corn syrup, but these days all you’re hearing about is gluten free. But what the heck is gluten? Well, beauties, gluten is an enzyme that is found on wheat, barley, and rye. So. anything with any these three ingredients has gluten in it. And, you wouldn’t believe how many foods and beauty products have wheat in them!
This blogger recently decided to make the change to a gluten free lifestyle (read: talked herself into having a gluten intolerance!), which got the hamster wheel turning: is there gluten in my beauty products? Is that contributing to my symptoms? Are they any good products out there that are G-free? After walking the shelves of Planet Beauty, searching for lines that feature gluten free products, the conclusion was that there are indeed great beauty lines within the walls of Planet Beauty that are gluten free! If you’re making the G-free change or just want something a little more healthy and natural, read on– Planet Beauty has you covered!
