I wrote to Sephora about their own products and they sent me a letter

stating none of their products are gluten-free.

**************

Hello Susan,

Thanks for contacting Sephora.com.

Unfortunately, we do not currently offer any products that are guaranteed to

be gluten-free. We recommend that you contact your doctor or dermatologist

for suggestions. Because the reactions to this can be severe if you have an

allergy, we recommend that you use only products to be guaranteed free of

gluten, as even in trace amounts, or in a derivative form, serious

complications can occur.

We are aware that there is a need for products that are gluten-free, and we

are striving to meet the needs of all of our clients. Please contact us

again in the future, as we are constantly updating our inventory and we hope

to have more selections available to you.

I wish I knew you contacted them, I'm trying to contact all the make up companies I can think of (like all the companies that are at Sephora and such). I've had a hard time finding out info about cosmetic companies, it seems there is a lot of food info out there but I've searched for a comprehensive list of cosmetic companies and it doesn't seem there a single list. I'm hoping to compile one (and I'll take any help offered).

I'm going to try the Bare Escentuals but I have really really dry skin and I still need major moisturizers and I'm afraid its just not going to look right on my skin. I can't imagine putting just dry powders on it.

the foundation itself isn't as dry as a typical powder. it does have some moisture to it and softens up when applied. i was definitely skeptical at first, bur now i love it...

I've contacted Cover Girl (I like their powder foundation) and asked about all their products, especially lipstick -- but can't get ANY good information from them -- they e-mailed me back after my asking for more specific information, and STILL had no answers. They referred me to my physician as well. Like he's going to know about lipstick. Or at least I hope he doesn't. :lol:

What about Philosophy? I use their 3-in-one shampoo/conditioner/body wash b/c it is travel size and is great for the gym. Anyone know if it has gluten in it? The ingredients are mostly chemicals so I couldnt figure it out

I picked up a little printout from CoverGirl at the grocery store recently, in the make-up section (it was in a little dispenser like they have for coupons). It has a list of ingredients for:

Triple Lipstick SPF15

Smoothers Hydrating Lip Color

Smoothers Lipliner

Smoothers Eyeliner

Wetslicks Lipgloss

Wetslicks Crystals Lipgoloss

Eyeslicks Gel EyeColor

Outlast Smoothwear Eyeline

Outlast Smoothwear Lipliner

Continuous Color Nail Polish

I checked the list thoroughly, twice, and did not see ANY sign of a product with gluten. A few had corn starch as thickeners, but that's it. If anyone wants this, I can post specific ingredients or make a copy and send it to you. :)

I know there are more products but this is all they had on this "list"-hope it helps.

not only did they respond immediately, but heres what they said- sounds like they actually know what they are talking about! :D

Most philosophy products are gluten-free. We do, however, recommend

those with a gluten allergy/sensitivity avoid the following products:

1. pigment of your imagination

2. time on your hands

3. the big blow off

4. hope in a jar eye & lip contour cream

These products contain hydrolyzed wheat and oat proteins which could

cause a problem for people with a sensitivity to gluten and gluten

products.

best regards,

alia

Wonderful, I love when a company gets back to you right away and knows what they are talking about. I'm also trying to make a really complete list of cosmetics/lotions, I love to try new products and this list will really help.

I've written to a bunch of companies and some have never bothered to get back to me... its been weeks and I guess they just blew me off (2 of which are Tarte and Bliss, which did get back to me saying they have no idea if any of their products contain gluten and why can't I have my doctor figure it out.... I asked them for more info and they never followed up).

Susan-

Don't you hate it when you don't hear back from companies. I've gotten so that if a company doesn't respond or gives me a shady response, I move on to another brand. ...(still transitioning)...

I know what you mean- as soon as i got that immediate response from philosophy, I practically fell in love with the brand and vowed to go buy more of it to use at home as well as the gym! its amazing how well a company can do by just answering our questions!

I do think that as time goes on, it will become easier and easier to access this info. Unfortunately, it seems that beauty products are significantly behind food products in providing this info.

      Update: I am about at my wit's end. I won't be able to see my new doctor until July 17 to get a referral to a GI doctor, so I continue to eat gluten and the effects continue to worsen. Today my boss, whom I have been working with for 12 years, and I had a meeting where he said he's noticed a change in many things, such as speech, not articulating well, forgetfulness, and other things that are affecting my work product. I finally told him I know there is something wrong with me medically and I've been trying to get to the doctor to no avail. I recall those four weeks early in the year when I tried out gluten free and was beginning to feel much better- more present, more sharp, and then went back on gluten in preparation for the blood test.  I just don't think I can do this gluten thing any longer and am thinking of going cold-turkey gluten free.  I'm 54 years old, am beginning not to care about a diagnosis because I just want to feel better and be able to do what I need to do. Because of how I felt going off of gluten earlier in the year, and eating gluten free when I was on the McDougall plan years ago, and how I feel while doing this gluten challenge, I am pretty convinced that my issue is gluten.  Any words of encouragement would be welcome.  If you've done gluten free and never looked back, tell me about it.

      "I got this vaccination in 2009 when I was 20 and it completely altered my life. Made my celiac disease so much worse, sleep 15-18 hours a day, SIBO, it has completely altered my life since getting this vaccination. My doctor has two twin girls about my age and they both have digestion problems after receiving gardasil Thank you I have a young daughter and have wondered this exact question posed by the poster and your response has given me great pause about this issue which may come up in years to come. I am sorry to hear this wreak havoc on your life, but simultaneously thank you for sharing this detail to help those of us that have likely been decades misdiagnosed celiacs now raising children. Thank you.
    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      "Wondering what kind of life my brother could have had - if  he had celiac - constantly haunts me" My sympathies that is just tragic, as this story is.  I hope you are at peace knowing you are aware of your celiac and help so many lost, scared, and confused celiacs here. It can never bring back your brother but I hope it can give soften some of what you feel that was/is beyond your control. His suffering and your loss has made you a better advocate to yourself and in your work helping us. I don't like my body or my  brain on gluten either. I do fear that people overlook the toll inflammation takes on the brain. It likely may explain decades of mental illness that was brain based inflammation unknown until changes in technology advancement catch up. However consuming gluten to study how one enters psychosis may not be the best method. Do no harm.

    • Gardasil And Celiac
      I have this same issue! I got gardasil in 2009 and have never been the same since. Celiac disease, thyroid problems. I used to be healthy and active and since I got that shot I have never been the same.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
