Hey Suz - Do you or anyone else know if this includes the solid deodorant. Is it a deodorant/antiperspirant or just deodorant?

Does anyone know of any others?

I verified over the phone that Secret Uncented Original Solid is gluten-free.

Kiss My Face has a lot of gluten-free products, including deodorant. I use their Liquid Rock. You can find a list of their products that DO contain gluten here:

Also, I'm a big fan of Tropical Traditions - love their lotions. Board members have recommended them here before. I haven't tried their deodorant yet, but I plan to. In fact, I may go order some now.

I am a big fan of the rock - the crystal deoderant. It doesn't stop you from sweating, but puts a layer of alum (not aluminun) on the skin that prevents bacterial growth that causes the icky smell. It's effective, and the darn thing lasts *forever*!

Tiffany--you must be a mindreader! I was thinking when I got back to the computer, I was going to ask if anyone had ever used the crystal. You already answered the question I had--about sweating. Do you use it in the summer, also?

Yep, it's the only thing I've used for about seven years now. It does work for 24 hours for me - as they advertise, and I find that in the summer, I just dress more appropriately for the weather. I may sweat a bit, but usually not inside, and if I wear appropriate clothing, it's not really noticeable. (Of course, I lived in Southern California.) If I'm doing something very active, I don't care that it's obvoius I've been sweating. :-)

Tiffany,

I had read a post of yours many moons ago that mentioned you were using the crystal. I decided to try the crystal and I love it. I've only been using it for a couple of months but it works so well. The label says it will last up to a year and it doesn't look like Ive used hardly any of it.....not bad for $5 or $6 bucks! :lol:

Thanks!

Tiffany -- thanks for posting that. I have always wondered about the crystal and obviously, you don't want to go around asking everybody about their deodorant! I'm glad to know it works -- I'm getting it tomorrow! . . . Lynne

I contacted a couple of manufacturers and this is their response:

Secret Deodorant

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. <_<

Arrid

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.

Thank you for visiting our web site. We appreciate your interest in our company and our products. It is nice to know that you enjoy using ARRID® Deodorant Anti-Perspirant.

In response to your inquiry, all ARRID® products are gluten-free. :)

    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      The following link might be helpful for others experiencing simlar psychosomatic issues with doctors. Although it's only for psychiatrists, I think it should be for all doctors! http://www.psychsearch.net/complaints/ The neuropsychiatrist I saw might fall into this category? I can checkmark:

       Falsified medical records
       No Biological Test for "Mental Illness" (no blood, urine or other lab testing)
       Breach of Confidentiality (...if she sends my medical records to my doctor or discusses them with him. I am requesting a copy of my records from this doctor t see if she sent anything to him.)
       Physical Illness Misdiagnosed as "Mental Illness"
       I was told I have a "chemical imbalance" (without any lab tests)
       Unethical Conduct
       Unprofessional conduct
       Something else that didn't seem quite right  
    • Allergy or Preference? Waiter asks
      At my local Five Guys, I told the counter guy that I had to avoid gluten for medical reasons. I was ordering a burger with no bun and some fries. He yelled back "Allergy Alert!" and every line cook immediately changed gloves and cleaned their work space. Will I go back? You bet I will!
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      The office is located in another city than where I go. There is no receptionist at the location closest to me meaning patients wait for the doctor to open her closed door to call their names for a consult. So, I would have to knock on her door which would really make her say that I'm sick since I keep writing letters AND showing up in person. The main office is too far for me to travel with road construction going on for the remainder of the year. I suppose I could mail the letter instead. But the staff is very irresponsible so it might be thrown away. The doctor probably told them that nothing needed correction in my records so ignore further requests from me. The other staff member I dealt with seemed normal, but I complained to the doctor about the staff member I dealt with today when she failed to update my phone number that I gave to her a few times (and which she said she updated), which resulted in me showing up for an appointment (I traveled a distance) one of the testers thought she canceled by leaving voicemail for phone number I no longer had. What I mean is I told the doctor that the staff member said she updated my phone number when the doctor asked me why I was there when I showed up for that cancelled appointment. Unfortunately, this staff member answers the phone most of the time. I'm sure she did what she could to make me look bad to the doctor to make her look good because I complained about her. I feel like scheduling an appointment with a psychologist to tell her what happened with this name calling. I'm sure it's against therapist code or I'd like a psychologist's feedback on this doctor's behavior. There are other patient complaints about her on the Internet how she laughs at patient's pain and suffering. I feel that's how she treated me. Update: The staff member called me back to tell me the doctor amended my report and she put it in the mail. I wonder if the doctor discussed what she said to me with another doctor who told her what she did was unacceptable in the medical field. I am hoping my report is amended or new negative comments are not added by the doctor to say I keep writing her letters or something in that regard.

      The letter I am suggesting has nothing to do with the doctor.  I would type it and walk it to the desk when are in the building for your other appointment. 
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      Thanks. I'm not sure if the doctor will read another email I send and that's the way I'm told by staff to contact her. It will just confirm that I keep writing her letters although I only sent her one email about it! I already told the staff and her that I didn't want my medical records sent to any doctor's office, but I don't know if they will do it out of spite. It was scary talking to this doctor because she wouldn't listen or let me get a word in...I guess that's the reason why I feel the need to raise my voice at this office. When I requested a Lyme disease prescription from another doctor years ago before I knew I had celiac disease, this ignorant doctor told me not to come back to his office because there's no such thing as Lyme disease so only crazy people think they have it. I thought that was the worst experience I had with a doctor, but this experience was worse. I mean this neuropsychiatrist kept calling me a sick person over and over. It's so scary dealing with doctors like this. I really don't know how many other doctors may have wrote in my records that my symptoms are all in my head because celiac disease isn't real.   And my neurologist said this neuropsychiatrist was great. Maybe he says that about all the doctors he refers to patients to? I don't know if you call her personality psychopath since she appeared really nice during my consult, but she was thinking all this negative s*** in her mind at the time or different than she appeared to be.

      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,
