I just realised my skin care (cleanser and moisturiser) has gluten in it! I thought I checked when I bought, but clearly not. I keep my skin care pretty simple. Cleanse in the shower, and moisteriser and thats it.
I have researched what I can get here, without crap in it, and without gluten, and there are a couple of options, but damn they are expensive.
Primal life Organics are great, ive ordered a few things from there Carrot Seed Primal Face Package, Norm-Oily – Primal Life Organics.... Paleo Skincare
I would rather buy Aus made and made to order like PLO, but there doesn't seem to be anything. The natural, gluten free things i've found, are mass produced.
My question is does anyone know of any chemical and gluten free products for skin care made to order in Aus?
Or if you make your own, what do you use?
You know all those things you wanted to do: You should go do them.

I started with olive oil, then coconut oil, but finally settled on jojoba oil because the first two were clogging my pores. I basically do an oil cleanse--after my shower I coat my face with jojoba, use an extremely hot washcloth to wipe it off, follow with cold water, and then spot moisturize with it if I have flaky patches.
I just realized that my fragrance free simple shampoo has wheat protein, no wonder my face gets rashy when I wear my hair down. Time to go back to LUSH. I've tried no-poo, but can't get through the greasy stage yet.
I like the look of Lush, we have it here, but not so much the price But might be worth it.
It's a daily dose of awesomeness!
I also use jojoba oil to cleanse my face in the evening, and occasionally I'll dab on some tea tree oil. I think both types of those I have are from AUS. I had issues with breakouts from EVOO, and I haven't tried coconut oil because it is supposed to be quite comedogenic and I have very sensitive skin. If you haven't ever tried the OCM or moisturizing with oil I'd look into it, it's quite easy to do and makes my skin look nice.
just saw on the lush site that their hair stuff has SLS so boo
I started the oil cleansing method thing about 2 months ago, and it seems to be working nicely. I use a castor oil/grapeseed oil blend to cleanse, which also removes even eye makeup very well, and follow with a bit of jojoba oil if I need extra moisture. I started healing about it through the Balanced Bites podcasts, and the CaveGirl Eats blog: http://cavegirleats.com/bodycare/
Worth a look at if you're looking for alternatives.
