Are Gluten-Free Beauty Products A Gimmick?

Gluten-free diets are no longer reserved for those with Celiac disease. The craze has become a diet fad amongst the health obsessed and has grown in popularity over the past few years.

The trend is now spilling over onto beauty products, but is that necessary? Dr. Franklin Lipman, Integrative & Functional Medicine Physician and founder of Eleven Eleven Wellness Center, gave his educated opinion.

“If you have celiac, using, or not using, gluten-free beauty products won't make a huge difference. Especially since when they get absorbed, the formulas don't ever reach your gut, which is where gluten creates an issue.”

Keep that in mind the next time you plan on splurging on a gluten-free beauty brand.
