Gluten-Free Make Up & Care Products

2 posts in this topic

I realized recently I was getting sick... probably from all of the products I was using (it didn't occur to me that I had to check all of my make up and care products when I first went Gluten-Free), so I have been doing some heavy duty research that I wanted to share with you all. All of this is recent as of May-June 2009, but check with the manufacters often as ingredients do change.

Gluten-Free PRODUCTS:

Maybelline Great Lash Washable Mascara

Davines Lovely Curl Shampoo & Conditioner

Davines Nou Nou Line (Shampoo, Conditioner & Pak)

Kerastase Chroma Reflect Masque

ALL Method Products

Clarins Delicious Self Tanning Cream

Clinique lists the allergens in their products, so I called and got them for the products I used. They will tell you if they contain wheat/gluten, corn or soy, so I listed the allergens for the products I use. This is the number if you need to call yourself: 1-866-707-2100


Clinique Self Sun Face Tinted Lotion: corn and soy

Moisture Sheer Tint SPF 15 (Fair): corn and soy

All About Eyes Rich: wheat and barley

All About Eyes Concealer: soy

High Impact Mascara (Black): soy, corn and wheat

True Bronze Pressed Powder Bronzer: corn and soy

Long Last Glosswear: corn and soy

Clinique Happy in Bloom: no allergens

Superbalm Moisturizing Gloss: wheat and corn

Some products I used that DO CONTAIN GLUTEN were chap stick (they could not guarantee it was not cross-contaminated), many of Bumble & Bumble's shampoo and conditioners (I used the curl line), Bath & Body Works soap line (and many of their products), Herbal Essences Shampoos and Conditioners (cross-contamination), Aveda Volumizing Spray, Davines' Momo Line (Shampoo, Conditioner, Fluid, Serums), Pureology Spray Gel (and many, many gels, sprays, fiber and waxes).

Krystal, you have done your homework and thank you for sharing your hard work with others.

I just wanted to add that just because a company will not guarantee a product, does not mean that it contains gluten. Do to the current law-suit prone environment in which we live in, it's safer for companies to make a CYA statement. Even though a product may contain no gluten ingredients, some companies will not guarantee.

A good example of this is Chapstick:
