I've been asked time and again lately whether our nail polishes are gluten-free. Yes, they are. For example, they do not contain ethanol or isopropyl. However, according to the German Coeliac Society, it is totally irrelevant for external use whether a cosmetic product contains gluten or not, since the allergic reaction takes place exclusively in the gastrointestinal tract and only a very small minority reacts with dermatitis herpetiformis Duhring via the skin. For example, it is extremely unlikely that a person affected by non-gluten-free varnish can get nail fungus, this rumour seems to be quite persistent. Nevertheless, for those who care, we are GLUTEN-FREE!
