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. :)

    • Do you mean something like a protein powder you could mix up?  A lot of them in the US seem to be gluten free.  Maybe just go to your local store and read all the labels?
    • Yeah I ended up allergic to corn, olives, sesame, whey, and peanuts and intolerant to dairy, soy, yeast, enzyme issues with breaking down meats, and egg yolks, along with extreme bloat with any kind of carbs/sugars in moderate amounts. And very adverse reactions to certain artificial sweeteners. So your not alone in all the other issues cropping up, it happens as our bodies adjust.  I eat a bunch of stir frys with veggies, egg whites, plenty of  avocados, and toasted and raw forms of almonds, coconut, cashews, walnuts, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, sancha inchi seeds, chia seeds, and sunflower seeds in all forms including making them into butters, spreads, and incorporating them into sauces.   Most meals are forms of soups, omelettes, and stir frys. I do the seeds and nuts on rotation same with my veggies and snack on fruits in small amounts along with some homemade baked goods I make for markets. I do suggest a rotation of foods, my dietician said I need to rotate my foods to prevent more issues, making sure I am off one one for at least 7-14 days at a time completely. I find changing up the spices and rotating my cuisine base works well. I also make puddings, and protein shakes along with nut/seed milks, and different bases and extract flavorings to get my random cravings Taken care of. Guess take what you can from this and and see how it can help you,    As to the tinging, I ended up with both B vitamin and magnesium deficiency issues, the magnesium one caused a fire like tingling in my arms, legs and back, along with muscle pain. Ended up on a doctors best powder form of it so I can dose it out right, and found epsom salt bathes helped.  
    • Hi, I've gained so much knowledge on this forum over the past few months, which I am so thankful for. I can see how much hell people are going through with this disease and it's so lovely to see how much support and advice people give to others on here. I'd like a little bit of reassurance and advice myself from anyone that can help. I've been gluten free for six months. Two weeks after going gluten free I realised I also had a problem with corn so cut out processed food. Over the following weeks and months I continually had problems with food; fruit, dairy, a lot of vegetables, nuts, soya....it's basically dwindled down to just eating potatoes (not white potatoes), cucumber, lettuce, small amounts of red onion, spring onion, sprouts and beetroot. There may be more things I could be okay with but to be honest I'm too scared to try.  Is this all normal? Am I an extreme case? I've been taking some digestive enzymes and probiotics for about six weeks, my acid reflux has dramatically decreased but I always have a lot of loud noises going on in my guts, I'm guessing this is the probiotics working.  I've lost nearly 3st in weight since this started - which I'm not complaining about as I was overweight due to thyroid problems. I've had loads of blood tests done recently, all organs are working 'great' according to my doctor, the only thing they've picked up on is ketones, I seem to be having a glucose problem, which might explain my exhaustion and weight loss. I also have permanent numbness and sometimes tingling in one of my legs and sometimes hands and one shoulder, I thought it could have vitamin B12 deficiency but that's okay according to blood tests. I would be greatful for any replies. Thanks for reading.
    • Hi everyone, I am doing job in restaurant at evening 5 to 12 during working hours no time to do a dinner. I'm thinking to make a shake but don't know the gluten free vitamin or supplement brand which one is good for me and easily available in Berlin Germany to make me fit cause last one week i feel weak. I'm 28 year old. Sincerely
    • Hey there just wanted to warn anyone that has other allergies- these crackers may not be a good choice! I'm mildly sensitive to MSG- I only react if there's a giant amount like in Chinese food or Ramen noodles, etc.  I literally have a to eat TONS of a the offending food before reacting.  Anyway, I was excited to try these Trader Joes pumpkin crackers, kept hearing about them on the radio .... and they're gluten free!  (I have Hashi's).  I ate about 3/4 of the box last night. Woke up this morning with a red itchy face and nasal congestion, headache, anxiety. Hallmark symptoms for me of high MSG intake. (It does say yeast extract on the side but it's pretty far down the list). So if you're sensitive.... stay away! Apparently these particular crackers are loaded with it.
