Before I went gluten free, I couldn’t figure out why most eye creams burned my eyes like fire ants. However, since gluten is a binding and thickening agent, it’s found in tons of eye creams. So in hindsight, I know that I was reacting to the gluten in the creams. Not everyone reacts topically to gluten or chooses to use topical gluten free products and I totally respect that. For me, however, I use topical gluten free products because I react to them and I also don’t want to accidentally ingest them. Not too likely with an eye cream, lol, but with shampoos etc, much more likely. So it’s a personal choice for that gives me a little more peace. And on this gluten free journey, I’ll take all the peace I can get. Sooooo, this gluten free eye cream list is for those who: react topically to gluten, have the topical form of Celiac Disease (Dermatitis Herpetiformis) or for those who don’t want gluten within a 10 mile radius of them.
