Tocopherol Acetate?
0

7 posts in this topic

I know tocopherol can be wheat derived but what about tocopherol acetate?? I've only seen it on here as soy derived but want to make sure. I found a great set from smashbox but this ingredient was worrisome to me so I held of on buying it.

It is my understanding that all smashbox (except the mascara) cosmetics are gluten-free. I use/ have used the cream blush, bronzer, soft focus powder, o-glow blush, lipgloss, eyeshadows and eyeliner with no problem and I have DH.

Sephora sells kits by smashbox-- sometiems with instructional videos that are a good deal. If you like smashbox, also check out NARS-- everything is gluten-free. And NARS is the parent company of Shiseido (also all gluten-free).

Happy shopping!

Thanks! I'm already in love with NARS lipgloss and will have to try some more of their stuff! I had read that the smashbox eyeshadow was ok but didn't know if it was their whole line. I was looking at the starter kit today and just didn't know about that one ingredient! Thanks again :D

Also check out the chanel lines (same parent company I believe). Their lipsticks and lipglosses are also gluten-free and they have a huge range of colors. Awhile back I also published a list of stuff that was okay from Guerlain-- I seem to remember there was some there too.

If you do a search here it should kick those up for you.

Have fun shopping! I like those smashbox starter kits because they are such a deal :-) I got the "7 best" and the "contouring/ highlighting" ones and I have been really happy.

You sound like you use the same lines as me! Do you know about the dior addict gloss?? I read the package and couldn't find any ingredient but their contact form on the website was broken and so I couldn't get an answer from them definitively.

Oh, I am a bit of an addict when it comes to this stuff. I'm sorry I have not researched the dior line. The best bet would be to call them if the link doesn't work. Please post when you find here-- I'm sure lots of people would like to know!

psipsina-

I"m a chemist (hence the username!) and your question nudged me on to see if I could find an answer !

This is an entire book about Vitamin E, and on Page 16 it discusses types of tocopherols. Long story short, tocopherol acetate can be synthesized or can come from natural sources; the former is gluten-free, the latter is not. Unless you contact the company directly and ask, you have no way of knowing if the tocopherol in your eye shadow is gluten-free.

Hope that helps...it helped me a lot!! I have DH and am purging my bathroom of all gluten-containing items.
