GLUTEN FREE  TACTICS:  THIS IS ONE OF THE BIGGEST GIMMIKS  GOING IN THE BEAUTY INDUSTRY TODAY.  NUMBER ONE:
 GLUTEN IS FOUND in a short list of things, and even less in any ingredients than one would ever put in to a cosmetic.

Gluten is found in:  
Wheat (wheatberries, durum, emmer, semolina, spelt, farina, farro, graham, KAMUT® khorasan wheat and einkorn), rye, barley and triticale – a cross between wheat and rye. Gluten helps foods maintain their shape, acting as a glue that holds food together.

Like:  Maybe, may be one would put a keratin that was made from wheat in their haircolor.  But not in any lipstick  or  makeup  I have ever seen.  What else can you think of that would ever fit into any of these Gluten containing categories?  But you can get Keratin from at Least 4 other plants that are more commonly used for Keratin, wheat products may contain traces but I DOUBT IT.  USUALLY IT IS NORMALLY TAKEN OUT IN THE PROCESSING /PURIFICATION OF THESE INGREDIENTS FIRST.  
What else?   Think about it.     These folks are just trying to fool you into thinking it is healthy to purchase a product that says that it is "Gluten Free"    WOW...GLUTEN FREE...
JUST ASK YOURSELF,
 Well DO I HAVE CELIACS DISEASE  OR   NOT.  Then worry about it.  Or just ask your doctor.

Gluten is the sticky stuff you get a Glue like  sticky   that comes when you mix dough over and over and over.....If you just put wheat flour in water and stir a little,  there should be no gluten.   When you make a certain type of yeast bread or maybe pizza dough, you must turn the dough over and over and pull on it the Gluten is released or created.  




What is the MOST DANGEROUS INGREDIENT IN NAIL POLISH? It used to be formaldehyde.  DO YOU KNOW?
it is called:   TOULENE   

 PEOPLE HAVE ASKED ME THIS QUESTION:  

 NOW   WHAT DOES THIS CHEMICAL INGREDIENT HAVE IN COMMON WITH PTD? 
(PTD is the chemical substitute  used in place of PPD),  PTD CONTAINS TOULENE.
PTD is TOXIC.  PTD IS NOT GOOD FOR YOU.  PTD's are NOT  BETTER FOR YOUR HEALTH THAN PPD's. 
PTD's are also analines, in the same family as PPD.  Many people who have am allergy to PPD, also have an allergy 
to PTD as well.

Many nail polishes now do not contain toulene or other undesireables.

TOXIC WATER REFORM:  Get in the act and in the know.

DIY Recipes - more will be forthcomming:

Here is a lovely product you can make to keep your hands clean in cold and flue season.  I have been used this formula and a similiar one for over 25 years but using a few different ingredients and to my preference. I keep in the car a 4 oz bottle and squeeze out some, keep a paper towel roll in the car, pull off a small wedge to dry my hands off after I have cleaned them with a small squeeze.  It is handy because often I have to eat on the run.  But I use it each time I come back into the car to keep my hands free of germs and nasties.

FOODS:  Rice, look up new daily amounts. Arsenic found in rice.

Arsenic can be found in water.  Both organic and inorganic sourced arsenic. Rice anywhere is grown in water and absorbs this toxic chemical and HM.   Some new U.S. recommendations state once a week only have one serving of rice.  Limit consumption of rice made products such as rice syrup,  rice cakes, baby formula, rice milk, flour, infant mixes.


D.Y.K.:
Let me ask you this QUESTION? What happens to toxic chemicals when they go down the drain into the pipes out of sight? It goes into the water right? I heard that it really goes into the water and eventually we drink it.  Does it get pumped out to sea or just purified at the plant? Where does it go? At what point do we drink it?   Note: in the Ukraine it used to be: In order to swim in a public pool, you needed a note from your doctor every YEAR, to qualify.   The reason was:  Because Chlorine was not used in the public pools, too toxic.  Only Ionized water was used.  Think this is weird, take a guess why.


Why do they tell you not to pour toxins down the drain such as automobile left over products for your car's upkeep.   If the water cleaning plants are so good and safe, why do they tell us not to put these things in storm
drains or gutters.  Where exactly does this water go?  Not to be suspicious, but what happens to the dirty water.   Years ago we werre trained to put out leftover auto products to go to a a special place for these toxins.  I would like to know what I am drinking. 

 Especially when hair salons put TOXIC HAIR DYE AND TOXIC PERMANENT WAVE or JAPANESE HAIR STRAIGHTENERS DOWN THE 
REGULAR DRAIN.  SAME WATER LINES AS WHERE THE DISH WATER GOES DOWN AND OUR DRINKING WATER COMES OUT OF.
WHY AREN'T HAIR SALONS  TOLD TO NOT PUT THESE CHEMICALS DOWN THE DRAIN?

THESE CHEMCIALS ARE FAR WORSE THAN MANY TOXIC HOUSEHOLD CLEANERS OR INSECTICIDES.  
For sure it ends up in the ocean where fish and Mammals live.  Possibly animals living around deltas and streams live and reptiles.
Eventually to make it's way back into the food chain.
