San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) July 22, 2015
Zion Health has just launched Gluten Free Organic Clay Soaps formulated for sensitive skin to Whole Foods Market in San Mateo, located on 1010 Park Place. The need for gluten-free skin care products has jumped in recent years as celiac disease becomes a growing concern among many consumers. According to the Mayo Clinic, applying gluten on the skin does not cause allergic reactions; however, if applied around the mouth or accidentally swallowed, sensitivities may occur. Zion Health Ancient Clay soaps are formulated with pure monmtorillonite clay to help reduce any effects of skin allergies or food sensitivities. Zion's Organic Clay soaps may be purchased online at http://www.adamaminerals.com and in Whole Foods Market in San Mateo, California.
Gluten is a protein found in wheat, barley and rye. According to researchers, gluten is not a health issue for most people, but for those with celiac disease or dermatitis herpetiformis (a form of celiac disease that affects the skin), gluten consumption can be extremely damaging and even deadly. New celiac, gluten sensitivity (GS) and gluten intolerance (GI) cases have been on the rise over the last few years and will continue to grow as doctors learn more about these conditions. People with these conditions are unable to consume gluten because it destroys the lining of their small intestine and prevents the organ from absorbing any nutrients. Doctors claim switching to a strict, gluten-free diet is the primary treatment and most effective.
Studies and medical journals point out that gluten needs to be ingested to be harmful. So why worry about it in skincare? Although the gluten molecule is large enough that it can't be absorbed through the skin, many people report strong reactions to topical products that are made with the protein. For this reason, a small but growing industry has developed to meet the increasing demand for gluten-free skin products. For people with gluten sensitivity, incorporating gluten-free products into their skin cleansing regimen is preferable.
Zion Health provides its consumers with pure vegan skin and body care products that are formulated without aluminum, parabens, gluten and sodium laurel sulfate. Zion Health's gluten-free Ancient Clay Soaps are now available in Whole Foods Market located on 1010 Park Place, San Mateo, CA 94403, as well as online at http://www.adamaminerals.com.
