Hello,

I was looking on their webisite and checking the ingredients in their mineral wear line. I can't see any obvious gluten in those products and they look safe to me.

BUT in their FAQ section it says:

Q. Does Physicians Formula products contain Gluten?
A. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that none of the ingredients, or derivatives in our products do not contain gluten.

Does this mean the gluten can be hidden or are they just making a general statement to protect themselves?

They likely are getting some of their ingredients from companies that don't guarantee that they aren't cross-contaminated. Therefore, in good conscience, they can't guarantee a gluten-free status for their products, even though they are probably safe.

There are companies out there that guarantee gluten-free status for their vitamins and minerals, like Kirkman labs.

I agree, and that's what they told me when I called them to ask about their mascara.

when i called they told me all of their mineral wear was gluten free. So now im wondering if that is why my eyes are still red, even tho they are better since i changed my face powder to gluten free powder, but not 100 percent better.

They should have never told me that the stuff was gluten free when they are not sure.
