Hi, I'm new to the forum and I need major help. Even after eating gluten free, I was still feeling very ill. I just found out that not only does what I put in my body need to be gluten free, but also what I put on it. I did find out that Bare Minerals make up is gluten free (correct me if I'm wrong) so I'm covered on make up now. Here is a list of products that I need. I would really appreciate it if someone could give me some recommendations.

Acne facewash
Volume shampoo
conditioner
body wash
lotion
mouse
hair spray

Any help would be appreciated :)

I don't know where you got that information but it is incorrect. You may want to read the book:
Celiac Disease: A Hidden Epidemic by Dr. Peter Green. It is an extremely informative book about the disease and how to manage it well. It covers why you do not have to go gluten-free with topical products, except lip stick and like products. Of course, you absolutely can choose to go entirely gluten-free but unless you plan on eating any of this stuff, it's not necessary....really. You have to ingest a product for it to spark an autoimmune reaction. As well as learning the diet, it's important to learn the mechanism of how this disease works and not believe everything you hear from other people. There is a lot of incorrect information out there.

If you are still not feeling well it could either be from gluten you are unaware of ingesting from your diet or you may have multiple food intolerances/sensitivities. This is highly common with Celiacs and the most likely culprit.

Good luck and I hope you feel better!

Suave and Dove will clearly label gluten ingredients. There are gluten free cosmetics also available. Giovannni products are organic and all the shampoos and condiitoners are safe as well as many of their skin care products. Most of the Burt's bees products are also safe, I use their styling gel. Many of us do react to gluten in toiletries and IMHO before you start thinking you are suffering from other intolerances you should be as gluten free as possible.
There are also threads here with products others use as well as advertisements for gluten free cosmetics that are on the side bars. Try doing a board search and you should find them easily.

ALL Giovanni Products are Gluten Free, I use the shampoo and conditioner and love them. ALL Afterglow Cosmetic products are Gluten Free. I personally try to only use personal care products that are 100% Gluten Free because I don't want to risk it. If I cover my body with gluten containing lotion and put my hand in my mouth or something I could get contaminated and research shows that consumers digest a significant amount of shampoo and cosmetic products without knowing it. So, my opinion is that it is worth the search, so good luck!

After realizing my occasional tendency to get shampoo in my mouth when I'm in the shower, I switched to Giovanni and love it.

I've heard that all Softsoap products are gluten-free, at least they were as of a couple of years ago.

Most likely your gluten free diet has something in it that you think is safe but actually is not. (I think most of this have expierenced that a time or two) I am a very sensitive celiac and I use shampoo, and hair gel that has gluten in it and I don't have any problems. When I sweat I do however make a point to keep and perspiration away from my mouth.

I am extremely sensitive and will suffer from neurological symptoms (myoclonus) if I use cosmetic products (topically) that contain gluten. My Celiac Specialist acknowledged my reaction by saying that several of her patients had suffered various reactions from using cosmetic products containing gluten. Last year, I was actually glutened by a Nexus shampoo that contained wheat and three months ago by Neutrogena Triple Moisture hair conditioner. Neutrogena told me it was gluten-free and after I was sickened from it, they apologized when they told me I had been misinformed. The product was wheat free..not gluten-free!

Anyway, I use Dove sensitive skin soap, California Baby Super Sensitive fragrance free shampoo (Target carries it in the baby section), Shikai Color Reflect hair conditioner (Whole Foods or other health food stores carry it). Shikai also makes a hair mousse and many gluten-free products..check out their site for details.

Someone on this Board (Patti or Christa) told me about Now's Joba Joba and cocoa oil. It is not a lotion but is a great gluten-free moisturizer if you have extremely dry skin. It comes in a jar and you only have to use a small amount.

Desert Essence Organics makes gluten-free bodywash.

Hope this helps you

I keep seeing that some people don't think celiacs need to avoid gluten in their personal care products that are not ingested. I'm sure the people writing these studies are only looking at the damage done to the intestinal track. If I use lotion or shampoo that contains gluten I start to itch. So there is another reason to avoid gluten in anything if you are sensitive to gluten.



Miss Emily, thanks for the list!

1960s-had symptoms-could have been before but don't remember
1970s-told had colitis or nervous stomach-was given phenobarbital, felt great but still had symptoms
Me, dd and ds diagnosed with Lactose Intolerance
2000-osteopenia
2001-had stroke because of medications I was given
June 2003-saw Chiropractor who specialized in nutrition: Celiac Disease not Lactose Intolerance, went gluten free with once in awhile cheating, off soy and dairy for about 6 months
June 2003-found excellent doctor for fibromyalgia (who has found out she has Celiac Disease)
May 2006-went gluten free with NO cheating-excellent! Made all the difference in the world

Miss Emily, thanks for the list!

No problem, I hope it helps! And I agree, it is so much better to be safe the sorry. There is so much we just don't know yet about Celiac Disease as it is still being studied. Therefore, I always suggest to ere on the side of caution.
What I Use:
Bar Soap (Dove Sensitive Skin)
Shampoo and Conditioner (Giovanni)
Lotion (Currently using Curel Fragrance Free but they are not 100% gluten-free :/ here is a link to the statement on their website: http://www.curel.com/berson.asp)
Perfume (I use Giovanni Scented lotions and body butters, I love the Cucumber Melon one!)
Toothpaste (Tom's of Maine, http://www.tomsofmai...-products.aspx)

Sorry to reply again, lol, but if you are specifically looking for a Voluminzing Shampoo, I use Giovanni's "Route 66." And they have hair spray and mouse too.

Try Bubble and Bee... (dot com) Do read the ingredients, as I'm no expert but... looks safe to me, and it's paraben free. When my current shampoo and shower gel run out I'm replacing w/these.

For the person who said the Lady was incorrect about using products that contained wheat, you are the one that is wrong....
I have had celiac since 2002. Anytime that I put any type of product on my body that contains wheat, barley, rye, and gluten I break out.. Including the top of my head when I use shampoos that are contaminated. IT really depends on what type of celiac you have and how severe your reactions are.
My brother too has celiac. His at first was just the bowel problems but now it is becoming the skin problems too.
Mine was the skinl,dermatitis herpatiforms, now it is becoming the bowel,.......
