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.
However, I use topical gluten-free products because I react to them, and I also don’t want to ingest them accidentally. 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.
So, this gluten-free eye cream list is for those who react topically to gluten, have the topical form of Celiac Disease (Dermatitis Herpetiformis), or don’t want gluten within a 10-mile radius of them.
