Susan,

I read that Revlon Color Stay and Loreal Colour Endure are gluten-free. I would check with the manufacturer to be sure. Other products may not be gluten-free.

Some Maybelline lipsticks are. Some Avon lipsticks are....

Better read all the labels just to be sure. It's different for each tube.

Here are some "hidden gluten" ingredients:

Hi,

Connie - Thanks for posting the hidden gluten ingredients list. I'm sure it'll come in handy at some point.

Susan - Neutrogena e-mailed me a list of their gluten-free products. I don't use lipstick and I don't even know what all of these products are, but they're lip-related in some way!

Instant Lip Remedy

Lip Boost Intense Moisture Lipstick SPF 20

Lip Boost Intense Moisture Therapy

Lip Moisturizer SPF 15

Lip Nutrition - All

MoistureShine Lip Gloss

Overnight Lip Therapy

Neutorgena offers approximately 100 gluten-free products. I'm sure they'd be happy to e-mail you a list, too.

Good day - Toni

I am new to this, (diagnosed a few days ago) so my question is: do I REALLY have to worry about things like my lipstick? I have also heard I shouldn't lick stamps. for a newbie, it seams pretty unreasonable. I don't mind being careful, but I am starting to feel a little paranoid.

Even the miniscule amounts of gluten that are found can make us sick!! YES u have to worry about these things. Overtime you will get very sick (cancer, lupus, infertility, diabetes, seizures etc) if you don't take this seriously.

Buy the stamps and envelopes that are like stickers, and you don't have to lick them.

Lipsticks, hand lotions, face lotions, toothpaste, are all things that you might think they might not matter, but they do. What happens when you use some hand lotion that has gluten, it gets under your fingernail and then you go to eat and you ingest some of that lotion!! YUCK!! Pretty soon your stomach doesn't feel so great, you get diarrhea and just can't figure out where it came from!!

You will thank yourself later for being very careful!! Trust us on this!

Best wishes-

Jessica :D

Thanks for all the info. It is really hard to find this info on the web! I like Neutrogena so I am going to try the MoistureShine Lip Gloss. Also, I emailed Revlon to check out the Colorstay. I don't wear lipstick everyday but I do like to wear it for special occasions and I don't want to feel bad on that special occasion because I used lipstick. When I email these cosmetic companies is there a way I should word my question. I just asked if gluten (wheat, oat, barley or rye) is used in the production of the product, in the product itself or is on the equipment used to manufacturer other products that contain gluten.

Are the above hidden-gluten ingredients for all lipsticks/cosmetics? I went out last night and bought some lipstick. I went off a gluten-free list I found from a reputable source. Well come to find out that both that were supposedly safe had some of the ingredients listed above. Now I noticed that my hand lotion has an ingredient in it too. Urghh!!

I was just wondering about the Soy Derived Ingredients off that list that Connie posted. Soy doesn't have gluten, so are they adding gluten into the soy ingredients? I'm just wondering, because my lipstick has TOCOPHERYL ACETATE , and that is the only questionable ingredient from this list. I am just wondering, since I will need a new tube soon, and I would hate to go buy a new one if it has gluten in it.

On the old board we had quite a long list of lipsticks that were gluten-free. I'd like to see that going again, since it is hard enough to find a color I like, let alone have to worry about gluten!

Lancome has a line called Rouge Absolu which is gluten-free. It's $20-SO, pricey. But it lasts and is very nice.

This makes me so frustrated that they just can't put on there whether it's gluten free or not. How in the heck can we know every little detail on everything. You mean to tell me that we don't have the resources to make this info available on the package?

Here are the ones I have confirmed that I use:

supermarket:

Burt's bees gloss (in the squeeze tubes) and the lipstick in the tiny chapstick-type tubes

carmex (can be used as gloss)

Ecco Bella (if you can find it)

Department Store or Sephora:

Chanel (all)

Nars (all)

Clinique (not all-- look at the label for the ingredients above)

Lancome Rouge Absolu

some Guerlain (do a search for the list posted on this forum)

100% pure glosses and cheek/lipstick all purpose tints (all)

It takes work to find this stuff out. It is also frustrating. But gluten-free lipstick is really important because you ingest a lot of it. Sorry-- yuckky, but true.

Hemp Organics is a really good organic lipstick that is gluten free as well as lead and petroleum free. http://www.vashonorganics.com sells it a reasonable price and offers free returns if you aren't satisfied with the color.

I have plenty of Lip glosses and checked the back for the ingredients above. I noticed it said "Soy derived ingredients" but I do not have any soy allergies. Does this mean that those ingredients are still of limits for those with GS (gluten sensitivity) and celiac?

No, the way they worded this statement the information was provided for those who have a cross-sensitivity to soy.

physicians formula has a lot of gluten free makeup.  I just had to replace all of my makeup and I couldn't find much at our local stores.  It says Gluten Free right on the box.

I really like Red Apple Lipstick. You should check them out.

So… My favourites which are certified and/or tested gluten free are Bite Beauty (a Canadian company that has opened a store in New York, but is also available on Sephora.com) and Ilia Beauty (which apparently is available in stores but no where near me, so I typically get them online as well). I've heard great things about Red Apple Lipstick, but haven't had the chance to try them yet.

 

The biggest thing for me is gluten, however, a lot of commercial/big name brands also contain lead and other heavy metals in addition to tons of chemicals that are impossible to say 3 times fast, so, the three lipstick brands I listed above are a more 'clean' alternative.

I've been feeling really sick lately and started keeping a food diary thinking I had something new other than gluten (I do have Celiac's) and lactose to add to my list, and here I think it was my make up.  Lipstick in particular that I thought were safe are NOT - including cover girl, Loreal, and Tarte.  If you go to their sites they specifically say they are NOT gluten free.  What I've found out, and someone may have mentioned this, is that Vitamin E is often derived from wheat germ.  I just ordered some Bite lipstick from Sephora which is CERTIFIED gluten free, and I really like it.  I ordered some samples from RedApple who is also gluten free.  I'm not sure if I'm going to toss all my makeup, but my loose powders, I'm going to stop using too from Tarte (who used to claim to be gluten free).  I ordered some Bare Minerals which seems to be okay for most Celiacs and a friend suggested Pacifica Beauty which is also gluten-free (and apparently available at Target). I haven't tried them yet, but she is a beauty blogger and likes them not because she's gluten-free.  http://www.pacificabeauty.com/our-products

Yes, vitamin E is often listed as Tocopherol or Tocopheryl acetate. I'm really confused about tocopheryl acetate, though. Some places seem to say there is no gluten left in the tocopheryl acetate because it is so processed. I can't seem to find any reliable information.

Well, you can consider me to be a reliable source or not, as you may choose. Tocopherols are highly processed and purified, and contain no detectable gluten, regardless of the original source.

Sorry for the late response. I have not been on for a while due to things in my personal life.

Every credible source that I have ever  seen lists tocopherols as gluten-free. In the Canadian Celiac Association's Pocket Dictionary, tocopherols are on the list of safe food additives. That is good enough for me.

Here is another source http://www.glutenfreedietitian.com/vitamin-e-from-wheat-germ-oil/

      Hi Richie I've put the above in quotes as you have described in the first and second sentence how I felt six months prior to my DX.   In my own case, in the end I concluded it was anxiety after consulting Dr Google!  It was such an alien feeling to me, I couldn't even think what it was, particularly as life was pretty good at the time.  Anxiety is a problem for a lot of celiacs prior to diagnosis, and often after glutening after going gluten-free. You mention breathlessness, this of course can be for reasons such as anaemia (again a common celiac problem, I had this prior to DX) but of course also can arise if you are anxious.   Re 'gluten free' - Flowerqueen is right, from what I have read on this forum some people really do seem to react with less than 20ppm.    But perhaps some other things to consider...  could there be something wrong with the batch you have consumed?  Might it be worth contacting the manufacturers?   That said, you could , as Flowerqueen suggests, have a problem with another ingredient, in the product or something else you consumed. In the past I have had a terrible reaction - fever, trembling, diarrhea, stomach cramps that lasted up to three hours the last three times I ate..... broccoli, of all things.    Who would have thought that possible?  I have often thought I should try it again, just to be sure it was the broccoli, as it is a 'super food' that I ought to have in my diet, that I like very much, but the thought of having such a reaction again has put me off. I do hope you will find some answers soon.

      Hi Richie,  I've not heard of this drink before, as I live in the UK, but any drink made from barley is something you should avoid.  There's a brand in the UK that makes lemon and barley water and orange and barley water and Coeliac UK say it is not safe for people with Coeliac disease.  (Our labelling laws in the UK changed a couple of years ago).  You say the drink you had was under 20 ppm, which is acceptable (usually) for coeliacs, but a lot of people are super-sensitive to gluten even in very small amounts.  I recently had a similar problem with something which was supposed to be okay for coeliacs, but when I checked the website of the product, for all it said there were no gluten containing ingredients, it was produced in an area where gluten was present, which was enough to put me off and must admit, the symptoms you describe sound very much like I experienced at the time.  (Personally I'd be avoiding that particular drink like the plague from now on). One other thing though,  have you checked the ingredients to see if there could be anything else in it which you may be intolerant to?

      I have not. I'll talk to my doctor about it
    • High Positive Test Results - Your thoughts please...
      With blood results like these, your husband most definitely has Celiac Disease.  The biopsy is just to check to see how much damage.  Keep in mind that even with high, high test scores like these, damage can still be patchy. Although I would be very surprised if they didn't find enough with numbers like these!  Thank goodness he was able to have a definitive diagnosis and reason for his symptoms!  Good luck!

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
