Bath and Body Works products are okay?

Question

Does anyone know if Bath and Body Works products are okay? Or what I should be looking out for on the label. And do you have a recommended gluten free toothpaste?

  1. I had to stop using bath and body. I got rashes

  2. As did I but I thought it was all the alcohol in their product..jeez Louise.

  3. When diagnosed with celiac you even have to watch out for gluten in your body products ? I am new to this and my son will soon be getting the testing.

  4. I heard that Colgate was ok for toothpaste. I called bath and body works and not one person could tell me what was in their products and if they were gluten free. I thought if they don’t even know what is in their own products I am not using it.

  5. Their little hand sanitizers shows wheat in the ingredients

  6. I’ve never been able to tolerate any lotions or hand soaps that contain a bunch of colors and fragrances, the tops of my hands turn bright red and itch like crazy. Probably not celiac related. Gluten is not absorbed through the skin. Colgate and Crest are both gluten free.

  7. BBW sanitizers are a no go, the list of ingredients (at least used to be) available on their website, or by sending an email to their customer service and asking for the ingredients in specific products/scents.

  8. The hand sanitizers have wheat!

  9. I use 2 1/2 TBSP coconut oil, 2 TBSP baking soda, and 4 TBSP turmeric….mix well put in small jar.\nHomemade Whitening Toothpaste.

  10. Here is the response I got when I emailed them. I quit using their products. Better save then sorry.

  11. For tooth paste I use Tom of Maine.

  12. The best alternative we have found if you love bath body works is Perfectly Posh

  13. And its relatively inexpensive… considering what ppl with celiac are used to paying for things. This is what i use on the facial sores my mom gets from gluten.

  14. I use biotene toothpaste and products

  15. I use Arbonne toothpaste. GF and dye free which is a plus for my ADHD daughter.

  16. They maybe gluten free but they are full of chemicals which cause a ton of health problems. Please don’t use them. I can recommend many great smelling natural options you can make your self or buy.

  17. Water and baking soda
