Hidden Gluten in Beauty Products: Words to watch for

Gluten is hidden in just about everything and that means beauty products.  However, most of the time they do not come out and say "wheat" They use other terms to hide the gluten.  Please remember that almost all oats are processed with wheat and therefore are not safe.

This is a list of the words that you need to look out for.

Avena Sativa (Oat) Kernel Flour
Dextrin Palmitate
Disodium Wheatgermamphodiacetate
Hydrolyzed Malt Extract
Hydrolyzed Oat Flour
Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein
Hydrolyzed Wheat Flour
Hydrolyzed Wheat Gluten
Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein
Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein/PVP Crosspolymer
Hydrolyzed Wheat Starch
Laurdimonium Hydroxypropyl Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein
Malt Extract
Phytosphingosine Extract (Barley)
Samino Peptide Complex (Barley)
Secale Cereale (Rye) Seed Flour
Sodium C8-16 Isoalkylsuccinyl Wheat Protein Sulfonate
Triticum Vulgare (Wheat) Germ Extract
Triticum Vulgare (Wheat) Germ Oil
Triticum Vulgare (Wheat) Gluten

Wheat Amino Acids
Wheat Germ Glycerides
Wheat Germamidopropalkonium Chloride

I ended up having to throw away about 1/4 of my beauty products.  Did you have to give anything up?
