Distil cold-pressed hexane free castor oil-- can this castor oil from aloe vera company be used to treat dry skin?
Wheat barley rye contains gluten, a protein molecule that in susceptible people can cause reactions and long term illness. There is celiac, the most well known and severe gluten disease.

See a board certified allergist to get a more accurate interpretation ...Read more

What is the absolute best non RX cream for keeping acne at bay? Aloe Vera, Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter, Vitamin E, Coconut Oil, or something else?

Overgrowth of demodex can cause lashes to fall out prematurely. The only fda approved way to stimulate eyelash growth is to use a prescription medication called bimatoprost (latisse) or similar medications available as eyedrops for glaucoma treatment. ...Read more
