All Puraglow products are gluten-free and contain no cereal derived extracts or ingredients.
Scientific advice is that gluten molecules are too large to be absorbed through the skin and hence coeliac disease sufferers (celiac disease in the USA) are claimed to at minimal risk unless they somehow ingest the product. However people who suffer from gluten sensitivity know differently and Puraglow’s inbox is full of mail from people who have had adverse reactions to skin care and cosmetic products containing grain protein and grain extracts and other gluten-related ingredients.
The fact is many shampoos, cleansers and moisturisers contain wheat and grain based proteins and allergic reactions can result from the presence of extracts of wheat, rye, barley, oats, spelt and khorasan wheat (commercially known as Kamut®). While these must be listed on the label of prepared foodstuffs it is not a legal requirement that they be listed for skincare or cosmetic products. People who are gluten-intolerant in their diet often suffer from grain-related skin allergies and hence suffer rashes and other reactions as a result of their allergy.
Puraglow’s products are perfect for grain allergy sufferers; not only are our products gluten-free (they are guaranteed to meet the legal food-grade requirement of containing less than 20 parts per million (ppm) or less of gluten), we do not use gluten related ingredients in any of our products. And because all our products are handmade fresh in a gluten-free environment there is no risk of the cross-contamination which may occur in a factory where gluten-containing products are also produced.
Puraglow have an affordable skincare range that has been formulated to be high performing yet also suit even sensitive skins, making all our products an ideal option for sufferers from Coeliac/Celiac Disease and people with gluten intolerance and sensitivity to products containing grains.
All ingredients in all our products are detailed on our product web pages and on our product packaging. If you have any questions regarding ingredients in any of our products please write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
