EpiLynx by Dr. Liia is pleased to announce its continued sponsorship of the Celiac Disease Foundation, a national nonprofit organization dedicated to accelerating diagnosis, treatments, and a cure for celiac disease through research, education, and advocacy.
Celiac disease is a serious autoimmune disease that occurs in genetically predisposed people where the ingestion of gluten leads to damage in the small intestine. It is estimated that three million Americans live with celiac disease, but 2.5 million have not yet been diagnosed, leaving them at risk for long-term health complications. As a sponsor of the Celiac Disease Foundation, EpiLynx by Dr. Liia is committed to raising awareness of this disease and providing the gluten-free community with skincare products that are tailored to those with celiac disease and other autoimmune disorders. While gluten cannot be absorbed through the skin, people with celiac disease or dermatitis herpetiformis should take care not to ingest gluten-containing skin and oral health products and cosmetics.
EpiLynx by Dr. Liia was born out of Dr. Liia Ramanchandra’s own struggles with health. Diagnosed with psoriasis at an early age and non-celiac gluten sensitivity as an adult, she dedicated herself to creating gluten-free, allergen-free skincare that people can feel good about.
“The Celiac Disease Foundation is committed to improving the quality of life for everyone affected by celiac disease and is pleased to continue our relationship with EpiLynx, which shares our common goals of raising awareness of celiac disease and ensuring our community has access to gluten-free products,” said the Foundation’s Chief Executive, Marilyn G. Geller.
EpiLynx is proud to be a sponsor of the Celiac Disease Foundation and to provide 100% gluten-free products.
