Upset and Panic...  

Have you ever found out that something you love could be harmful to you?!! You have probably seen me mention before that I'm a Passion Parties Independent Consultant. Well I just ordered a bunch of bath & body goodies in our new wonderful Mangosteen scent. I do not know why I did this. Maybe the Goddess was looking out for me... But I opened the pump of my Soft & Silky After Shave Protection Mist. OOOOOhhhh! SO good!
Then for some reason I looked at the ingredients. Would you have guessed that there is WHEAT in it! I'm gluten-free. Not my choice. But because I get horribly sick if I have any wheat. But I'm not celiac.

So, here is the part where I panic... I remembered reading that a person with gluten issues should not use anything on their skin (cosmetics, lotions, shampoos...) with wheat. It can still be absorbed through the skin into your system. So, if you can just imagine me running around my house checking my shampoo and conditioner I looooove. I use all Aussie products on my hair. Whew! No wheat. Then I'm rushing to check my mangosteen creamy massage oil (I use it as an every day all day long hand and body lotion). Thank goodness! whew!! no wheat/ wheat germ oil.

Ummm how does one check the ingredients of cosmetics after they have been opened. I do not think there is any bi-focals good enough to see that! *lol*

So darn upset I have to get rid of my after shave mist though... :'(

It has so many other wonderful ingredients in it that I love. Lavender, clover, cucumber, echinacea, raspberry, oat...

Soft and Silky After Shave Protection Mist provides your skin with extra protection to aid against irritation, moisturizes newly shaved skin, softens and tightens your skin, has a pleasing unisex aroma. I love my skin when I pair it with Soft and Silky Shave Creme!

Ohhh that's terrible!
I can just imagine your horror!!

My mom is allergic to paraben. And that is in like EVERYTHING. She can't use many soaps, lotions or make-ups. Its very frustrating for her.

oh no thats aweful Jacquelyn. I'm so sorry your mother can't use many many products. I have to say that I'm very very proud of the stand that Passion Parties takes on the paraben subject. It is has not been scientifically proven yey or ney whether paraben is actually safe or not. So because of that our Passion Parties corporate staff went through and redid our entire line of RomantaTherapy products to be paraben-free.

I actually did not even know what paraben was until this change in our product line.

Does your mom make her own soap? Have to buy it from a special retailer?

She generally buys lotions and soaps from a special retailer, or gets prescription ones from the Dr. I remember one time we were looking for a specific lotion (or maybe it was sun screen??) and ended up having to go to a city 3 hours away to get it!!!

I'm very thankful I didn't inherit that allergy/condition.
