GENERAL
It helps to see gluten free on a label, that saves many hours of looking at same type products to find one safe .
I would like to see a more standard labeling , example , caramel coloring(corn} or what ever , instead of labeling no one understands except the manufacturer
meds need to be clearer as well. what the coatings are as well as the ingredients within the capsule.
and for those of us with cd with the skin problems as well. manufactures need to be alittle more understanding that what we put on our body can be consumed at times by biting nails, swallowing shampoo while washing hair , lipstick, why the secretcy?? we just want to understand the label not copy or duplicate it. thank you the clearer the labeling the more chances I will buy it .in doubt forget it , find another, safer and with clearer labeling.

sincerely,
