Gluten-Free Personal Care

Although most people with Celiac Sprue Disease are very aware of checking the ingredients in the foods they eat, it’s also very important to be alert to glutens in the personal care product they use.

Some MDPrivateLabel products contain a form of Tocopheryl Acetate, but it is not derived from wheat and we use no other ingredients that contain Glutens.

Laura Waldo has a wonderful website for anyone with Gluten sensitivity:
