Did you know the average woman eats over four pounds of lip products in a lifetime? Did you know those lipsticks, glosses, and lip balms may contain wheat-based oils and proteins? So, you can be diligently monitoring your diet and still micro-dosing yourself with gluten each and every day!


Did you know the average woman eats over four pounds of lip products in a lifetime? Did you know those lipsticks, glosses, and lip balms may contain wheat-based oils and proteins? So, you can be diligently monitoring your diet and still micro-dosing yourself with gluten each and every day!

Afterglow CosmeticsAfterglow Cosmetics offers a solution, as the first line of cosmetics to be certified gluten free by the Gluten Free Certification Organization.

Since our company’s creation in 2004 CEO and Founder Kristin Adams has striven to develop a safe line of cosmetics using natural, organic, and gluten free ingredients that respects women’s bodies and the earth.

However, her dedication to creating gluten free cosmetics stems from a very personal place, as her mother and her sister both suffer from Celiac Disease and react very seriously to even the slightest amount of gluten. Naturally, when they found out they suffered from Celiac Disease they worked to eradicate gluten from their lives, but they had trouble finding cosmetics that were completely gluten free and also effective. Their need turned into Kristin’s mission to create gluten free products without the risk of cross contamination.

 Now, nine years later, we are pleased to announce that we are the first cosmetics company to be Certified Gluten Free by the Gluten Free Certification Organization!

The entire line is also soy free, mercury free, paraben free, GMO free, PEG free, synthetic dye free, fragrance free, carmine free and petrochemical free.  Afterglow Cosmetics is also certified Cruelty Free by Leaping Bunny!
