Hi,

Does anyone have any suggestions for a good gluten-free waterproof mascara?

Thanks, Wendy :)

Hi Wendy! I am new to this site and did not even think about Mascara! Darn! Having this disease is not fun at all! So many things that have hidden gluten and we don't know what does and what doesn't! Kind of bad when we have something like this that makes us sick! And i wonder how many of us are out there that are not even diagnosed yet! Maybe somebody will come along and give us an answer. I know I have been wearing Great Lash all these years because the price was so good but have no idea what it has in it! Thanks for bringing this up!

Linda

Mascara is one of the most challenging items to find gluten-free. It is also very important because there is some thought on this board that you can absorb gluten through mucous membranes, like the lining of the eyelids. If you are not as sensitive you may find mascara is not an issue for you-- then you have oodles to chose from.

Sadly, I have not found a 100% safe waterproof type mascara. I have contacted tons of companies, including some very upscale brands.

Right now the ONLY mascara I know of that is 100% gluten-free certain is NARS. It comes in two colors-- brown ("bamboo") and black. You can get it on Sephora. But it is not waterproof at all.

Good luck and if you find one let me know.

Sorry-- I went back into old emails and found two more. However, I am not sure they are available on the American market. They are from Guerlain and they answered me only a few months ago.

Here they are:

Mascara Le 2 : G040 665
Mascara Maxi Lash : G040 122

I am not sure if they are waterproof. I will go see if Sephora has them....

Good luck!

Avon makes a great Wash-off waterproof but I don't know if it's gluten free. Any Avon ladies here to verify?

Husband has Celiac Disease and
Husband misdiagnosed for 27 yrs -
The misdiagnosis was: IBS or colitis
Mis-diagnosed from 1977 to 2003 by various gastros including one of the largest,
most prestigious medical groups in northern NJ which constantly advertises themselves as
being the "best." This GI told him it was "all in his head."
Serious Depressive state ensued
Finally Diagnosed with celiac disease in 2003
Other food sensitivities: almost all fruits, vegetables, spices, eggs, nuts, yeast, fried foods, roughage, soy.
Needs to gain back at least 25 lbs. of the 40 lbs pounds he lost - lost a great amout of body fat and muscle
Developed neuropathy in 2005
Now has lymphadema 2006
It is my opinion that his subsequent disorders could have been avoided had he been diagnosed sooner by any of the dozen or so doctors he saw between 1977 to 2003

I use Estee Lauder's MagnaScopic. Although I don't know for sure if it is waterproof I never had an issue with it running. It also is soy free if memory serves.

Why would it matter if mascara had gluten in it? You can not absorb gluten through your hair ... and many articles I've read says that the gluten molecule is too big to be absorbed through the skin into the bloodstream anyway (though i tend to err on the side of caution and avoid it anyway). Have any of you ever had a reaction to mascara? Just wondering!

As far as I know, the eyes, nose & throat are connected and flakes of mascara could in theory get into eye and perhaps connect up with nose & throat and then be ingested. Any thoughts from anyone else?

Not trying to be gross about it but think about it this way. Your tear ducts and your sinuses are connected. Anything that goes into your sinuses has the opportunity to drain down the back of your throat and into your digestive tract. The eye is a mucus membrane that has potential to spread viruses and bacteria to the body.

The reaction is a burning or irritating of your eyes. They will feel overly dry and you'll find yourself blinking quite a bit. Avons mascara is gluten-free.

Hi.

I wrote to Bare Escentuals (see below) and most of their mascara's are gluten free. I, stupidly, was using the Big Tease mascara from Bare Escentuals and it contains wheat. No wonder I live on Visine. Grr. Honestly, I don't know if I'm reacting to it (other than constant red, itchy eyes) because I still have SO much healing to do. Maybe it's holding me back, who knows?

Anyway, their waterproof gluten-free mascara is called Weather Everything. I use it in the summer and it works great.

Jill

Dear Jillian,

Thank you for contacting Bare Escentuals. I would be happy to answer your question for you.

We take great pride in the quality of our products. Most bareMinerals products are gluten free. This includes bareMinerals foundation, all-over face colors, blushes, eyeshadows, glimmers, glimpses, liner shadows, brow minerals and body minerals. Many of our i.d. Bare Escentuals products are also gluten free, including most lip products.

The Big Tease Mascara does contain Wheat. However, our Classic, Magic Wand Brushless, and Weather Everything Mascaras do not contain any gluten products.

We hope this is helpful, but please do not hesitate to contact us with any additional questions you may have via email or by phone at 1-888-795-4747 during our business hours Monday through Saturday 5 AM to 9 PM, Sunday 7 AM to 4 PM Pacific Time.

Thank you so much for this thread! I stopped wearing mascara awhile ago because it was bothering me. Well the other day I bought a new tube of Great Lash and put it on and my eyes ended up red and watery. A lash ended up in my eye (while driving! I apologize to anyone I may have inadvertently run off the road) and it was a big nightmare. I ended up having a skin reaction like I do when I have gluten, but did not have any GI symptoms. I think now I'll triple check for gluten free mascara just to be on the safe side.

Hi,

Does anyone have any suggestions for a good gluten-free waterproof mascara?

Thanks, Wendy :)




Don't know if you ever found a gluten free waterproof mascara, but I've been using Estee Lauder Double Wear Zero Smudge Mascara (can't tell the difference between this mascara and waterproof). Just got the email from Estee Lauder regarding the ingredients today. Here's what they said:



Thank you for taking the time to contact us and for your interest in Estée Lauder.

In response to your inquiry, the Doulbe Wear Zero Smudge Mascara does not contain Gluten.

We trust that the above addresses your concern. We hope you will look to Estée Lauder for all your beauty and fragrance needs.

Sincerely,

Marie Pubenc
Response Representative

I love it and am so happy to find out it's safe for me to use!!! Let me know if you try it.
