Beauty Goes Green IV - Wheat-y issues

GCI Webinar moderators Tina Hedges and Beth Ann Catalano mentioned that the vegan Jonathan Product line is wheat free. It opened up a line of questions.

The EU also allows more items that they consider "natural" and "organic" as opposed to the US. I am familiar with no animal (includes beeswax, honey) no dairy... But where does the wheat come in as far as being "anti" vegan?

How does dermal testing pass vegan requirements/Or is testing on humans acceptable?

With the growing trend in natural and organic, is there also a growing interest in edible personal care products?

Some Vegan diets abstain from gluten even though it is not animal derived. We also felt being "wheat-free" was important as increasingly more people are allergic to wheat or gluten. the only testing to substantiate vegan claim is passing ILN & raw material supplier QA.
