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. :)

    • Thanks.  This is very helpful.  Our first post diagnosis grocery store trip took several hours, just trying to read labels to make sure everything is safe.   Our son loves bread and this going to be the hardest part. 
    • i would agree with most of your assessment but overall the popular chefs are very aware. Ed Kenny at Town did have  gluten-free options on the menu.  Mavro's will fix something special given advance notice but its expensive.  excellent but very expensive.  Alan Wong is very aware and will have his staff prepare something as well.  We did find many options at both Oahu  whole foods -- mostly  with tofu. the only thing  there is to be aware of cross contamination with things  next to it.  they make a great gluten-free southwestern tofo dish which is great but not if its sitting next to anything with gluten. Its not whole foods but people use the smae  spoons and tongs i found more at   down to earth in peal city than by  University ave  
    • Hi,  I'm in KOna but my kaiser doctor just retired  who was pretty good about it. I dont know of a specialist here  but most of hte kaiser docs wil test you if thats when you need to talk to them about. good luck  
    • Yes.  And wouldn't it have been nice if your doctor had tested you for Celiac disease before you went gluten free? Then you would know if your issues are Celiac or not.  That would help you know how careful you need to be, what other illnesses and problems to look for, whether you might be passing a genetic disease on to your children, if you should look for another cause of your symptoms, etc  
    • I would be very careful in giving this kind of advice, she is in an advanced stage. I was there and one additional symptom that I was getting was a strong urge to commit suicide so eating gluten for three months might not be the way to go for some people. If a gluten free diet stop the problems them gluten is the problem or a least part of it. I eliminated MSG from my diet because I notice that the common denominator for some products that affected my well being was MSG. I eliminated oats because I notice that I would get canker sores every time I ate it. Wheat is what affect my brain the most, irritability gets uncontrollable, my mental capacity greatly diminish, rash in my arms appear, can't sleep,etc. Barley makes my stomach groan, and constipated. Will try testing how Rye affect me some later time.
