Gluten free and vegan sunscreen? Umm ok.

Yeah, I know it sounds kinda silly. I don't usually seek out products that are either of those. This particular one just happens to be that and works for my super sensitive skin. But if you are someone who has a severe case of celiacs disease, then using gluten free lotions, cosmetics, etc is extremely important because the gluten can be absorbed through your skin and you can have a reaction from it.

JohnnyU, yes it is GMO free as well.

2% or less of population are actual celiac's. If you are, I understand, the need, because I actually knew a baker who was a celiac and just working with flour was awful for him.

I was thinking of moving to the VI but I have a question that I can't find an answer to in the archives. What kind of suntan lotion should I use if I move there? And what kind of paint do you use on your houses? Are incandescent light bulbs legal there?

You should use sunscreen that doesn't have Oxybenzone, of course.
You should use mildew resistant paint in your favourite shade of flamingos pink and no, incandescent bulbs are not legal here as they have been phased since in 2014. Regulations would allow sale of future versions of incandescent bulbs if they are sufficiently energy efficient.

So come on down and enjoy the mosquitoes.
