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. :)
