Because gluten can be found in personal care products, if you have a gluten sensitivity this is an excellent choice for hand soap. If you don't like scented products, this is also a winner. This is a creamy white non-drying hand soap that lathers well,is packaged in an attractive dispenser and is reasonably priced. No parabens, sls, phthalates or animal testing. I just wish it was also available in a super-size refill bottle.
