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.

    • antibiotic for my 6 year old- could it have gluten?
      My 6 year old just got prescribed an antibiotic (keflex) and is the liquid pink stuff they give kids.  I just realized I didn't ask if it was gluten free when I picked it up from the pharmacy!  Anyone know if I should be concerned?  Does that pink stuff have gluten?
    • Oat Flour making me sick?
      We suspect my 6 year old cannot tolerate gluten-free oats either... do we need to treat them just like wheat as far as CC issues?  Should I not cook oatmeal in pots that we prepare her food in?

      Having anxiety is a major symptom of celiac disease per many of our members on this forum (including me).  These are the tests needed for diagnosing celiac disease but the catch is that you need to be consuming gluten in order for them to be valid.   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ Your GP or PCD doctor can order the panel.  Try to go for the complete panel.  Often just the TTG tests are given in order to save costs.  It's good, but does not catch all celiacs. I hope you get relief!

      You need to have your adrenal glands checked. I was diagnosed with celiac after my adrenal glands started to shut down. Since then I have met at least 3 others that had the same thing happen. It was missed 3 times in the hospital, for some reason the adrenals often get missed.  It sounds like the latter stages of hypo adrenalism, not adrenal fatigue. Research it to see if that seems like what you are going through and make sure you find a dr that knows how to diagnose and treat it
    • In Dire Need Of Help
      Hi my name is Alex and I am 23 years old. I am suffering so badly right now in life. Everyday I have multiple, very severe panic attacks. I have called 911 many times in the last 6 months. I am suffering with vertigo, intense weakness and pains, I can not digest anything, I have terrible acid reflux, I can't sleep, I can't relax, my heart constantly palpitates, my breathing is "forced labor" all day. I am suffering in a mental fog. I have been from doctor to hospital to doctor and every EKG comes back normal, every doctor says the same thing, I am struggling with anxiety and they write me whatever prescription of the week they are offering  I recently took it upon myself to cut gluten out of my diet, and wallah! I felt like I did in high school within 2 days. I work in NYC and many times it is nearly impossible to find something containing no gluten, and many times when I ask they tell me "No Gluten" and I eat whatever food I ordered (probably salad w/ dressing) and i find myself driving home in a terrible panic attack. Panic is my main symptom. I have not been diagnosed yet, but the difference from how I feel and how to the people around me tell me I act I am 100% convinced. The question I'm having is, what do you think? Is it possible I have Celiac? Can panic be the main symptom? I'm telling you right now, my anxiety is unlike anything anyone has ever seen. I lay on the ground for 2 hours with numb limbs feeling like I am having a stroke unable to talk to anyone. I have 2 of these a day. Please let me know your thoughts. I truly am a novice with all of this. I am suffering and I need help. Thanks

      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.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
