Though Murad has many gluten free skin care products, several of our products do contain gluten. According to prevailing scientific authority, as a general proposition, both people with Celiac Disease and those with gluten sensitivities can safely use topical skin care products that contain gluten. Professor Michael F. Picco, M.D., a board certified gastroenterologist affiliated with the Mayo Clinic summarizes current thinking on the subject as “gluten-containing skin care products and cosmetics are not a problem unless you accidentally swallow them.”
* If you are under a doctor’s care for Celiac Disease, gluten sensitivity or any other medical condition, your doctor is your best source for information regarding your condition and what’s best for you. As with all cosmetic products, we recommend that you try our products on a small patch of your inner-arm to confirm that you have no unique sensitivity to any of their ingredients.
