The one resolution, which was in my mind long before it took the form of a resolution, is the key-note of my life. It is this,always to regard as mere impertinences of fate the handicaps which were placed on my life almost at the beginning. I resolved that they should not crush or dwarf my soul, but rather be made to blossom, like Aaron's rod, with flowers-Helen Keller

I called Pantene last year and they told me that "all Proctor and Gamble products are gluten-free". I use Pantene, but I would recommend reading ingredients on other P&G products before buying. Once I picked up a bottle of Clairol Herbal Essences (Clairol is owned by P&G), and it had wheat protein in it.
Neutrogena has a list of gluten-free cosmetics, you have to call or e-mail though.
Lots of Burt's Bees products are gluten-free. I use their chapsticks and lipsticks.

I have great news about lipstick! I found out that the ECCO BELLA lipsticks from Whole Foods are gluten free. It took me a while to get the information (during which I actually cried a few times, feeling totally unlike myself without lipstick,, and feeling like I was from another planet going around asking about cosmetics without gluten...anybody know the feeling?)...but the gal at Whole Foods was sooooo nice and helped me contact ECCO BELLA, and they were also great, and proud that their products are gluten-free. (I think there is one facial product that isn't, so if you need to know about that check with them)... I was using their lipsticks before I went gluten-free and love them because they have great ALL NATURAL ingredients, great colors, and great smoothness so I was real happy to get to keep using them. I also love their foundation and coverup sticks which are all natural, and give great results for my bad complexion days. Basically I love this company. Their toll free no is (877) 696-2220. They sent me a catalog of lipstick, foundations, eyeliners, mascara, skin care products etc. Again, I know the lip products are okay but double check on the others because there was one she mentioned as not being okay but I forgot which (sorry) let me know if you get extra info on that. Enjoy, Valerie

Mary Kay has cosmetics that are gluten-free, but they also have some that are not. We can use their lipstick, eyeshadow, blush, foundation, and waterproof mascara, but not their colored nail polish. I don't remember about their cleansers, but I think about half of them are safe. You would have to get your consultant to look up the ingredients for you. And a good consultant will go all out to help you.

I have written to several mainstream cosmetic companies and received information which contradicts several earlier posts. There are gluten-free products available from Mac and Lancome, but not all are gluten free.

Here is information directly from e-mails I received from MAC Cosmetics, Lancomé, Loreal, Max Factor, Maybelline, and Trucco:
________________________________________________________________

Here is the e-mail I got from MAC. It has an incredible list of gluten containing ingredients (including soy and yeast based ingredients) used in cosmetics so we can all avoid them!

Thank you for your interest in L'Oréal Lipstick.

As a global leader in beauty, L'Oréal Paris is dedicated to rigorous standards of manufacturing excellence that result in the highest product quality and safety around the world. Our ingredients are selected for their record of safety.

All the ingredients we use in a product are listed on the package or the label of the product itself. For products too small to accommodate the list, we provide separate ingredient lists you may take from the display. Since some ingredients are known by more than one name, we use the standard industry names for ingredients as found in the International Cosmetic Ingredient Dictionary. This dictionary lists FDA-approved names.

This product has been manufactured using gluten-containing ingredients. A review of the ingredients that are listed on all of our products or packages will alert you to the presence of this type of ingredient.

If you would like to request an ingredient list for a specific product, please call us at 1-800-322-2036, Monday - Friday, 9 am to 5 pm, ET.

Hi, Lorinda.

We know Celiac is a serious disease, so we want to give you clear information regarding the use of our beauty care products. If wheat and/or gluten aren't directly added to a product by us, these ingredients won't be listed on our packages. Like many companies, we often purchase the scents for fragranced products from outside suppliers, and the components of these substances are proprietary information belonging to those companies. Therefore it's possible that a very small amount (generally parts per million) of gluten may be present.

We sought advice from physicians; they told us it would be very unlikely a person with Celiac disease would have a reaction from a trace amount of gluten coming into contact with his skin or hair. This is because wheat, rye, barley and/or gluten generally cause symptoms when they're ingested. Since our beauty care products are designed to be used externally on the skin, their use shouldn't be an issue for someone with this disease.

Since gluten sensitivity can vary among people, it would be best if you consulted with your physician about the use of all types of consumable goods, if you haven't already. You might even consider using one of our fragrance free products that doesn't list gluten or wheat extracts on the label.

I'm sorry, but we don't have a list of gluten-free products at this time. I hope this response has been helpful to you. For more information about Celiac, you may want to check out http://celiac.com/ and http://celiac.org

Thanks for getting in touch with us.

I just contacted Merle Norman Cosmetics, Ingredients Department (800-421-6648). I was told to avoid their Lipsweet plus (like a chapstick) and their Luxiva Ultra Lipcolor. Both contain gluten.

Two ingredients to watch are Tocoherol and/or Tocopheryl Acetate which can be derived from wheat germ as well as vegetable oils. Most cosmetic companies are good about providing lists of gluten free products (I guess to make up for the fact that they don't provide it on the labels.

Two years ago I purchased Mary Kay waterproof mascara and there was hydrolized wheat protien in it. Maybe they changed there formula. Just be careful.

Since being diganosed and then being asked if I have sensitive skin and my doctor informed me of cosmetics that contain gluten which I was totally unaware of. Well Since using CAlifornia Baby line has been a life saver I recommend this line to anyone. THe super sensitive shampoo/bodywash is perfect to use as a face wash for adults and the super sensitive everyday body lotion is great and I havent broken out. Also the Calendula cream is great too the line is available at Whole Foods.

Does anyone know about Victoria Secret lip glosses? I have been throwing old stuff out that contains gluten Thank you -Christina

I am new to this - just received my Celiac Disease dx yesterday. My symptoms are mild. Does anyone have any information about face creams? The one I use has Avena Sativa (Oat) Kernel Extract and Hordeum Distichon (Barley) Extract. If I apply it to my face and wipe off any that touches my lips am I OK to continue using this product? I really hope so.
