Gluten-Free Make Up & Care Products
0

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

Laura Mercier Foundation Powders

Burts Bees Pomegranate Lip Balm

Aveda Hand Relief

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 PRODUCTS:

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

Gentle Waterproof Mascara (Black): corn and soy

True Bronze Pressed Powder Bronzer: corn and soy

Take the Day Off Make Up Remover for Lids, Lashes & Lips: corn

ALL Eye Shadow: 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:

    • First, do you have celiac disease?  Have you recently had a celiac antibodies follow-up blood test panel to see if gluten has been actually getting into your diet by accident or through cross contamination?  If you haven't had the test, you should ask your doctor for one.  You could also also ask for a follow-up endoscopy to see if you intestines have truly healed.  This will rule out if gluten is really the problem.    If you don't have celiac, I assume you have Non-celiac gluten Intolerance because no one would stick to the gluten-free diet for six years unless you have had reductions in symptoms.  There is no test for NCGI unfortunately.  So, it is hard to say if gluten has been sneaking into your diet.  You really are going to have to try to figure out if you are getting gluten into your diet.  If gluten is not the problem, then your doctor needs to check you for other issues, like SIBO. There is a test to check for SIBO.  Has this been done?   Once a celiac, always a celiac.  There is no cure for celiac disease except to remain on a gluten free diet for life.  I am not sure about NCGI.  Not much research has been done.  Maybe others can chime in?    
    • I am so confused right now.... 6 years ago I went on gluten free diet... after being on it for the first yr I was 100%better up until 5 months ago in got the "flu" the doctors told me to cut out dairy sonic did and my diarrhea  became better but not completely gone would not have it every day tho. I went to the gi doctor and they said to cut out fructose and dairy and keep gluten out... yesterday I went to the dietitian to see what I can eat and she gave me the list for fructose... she said it should have been on a antibiotic for sibo.... eventually I will be able to add dairy back and maybe gluten.... I said how can I add gluten back when this was my first problem... she goes well through fructose goes hand in hand with it... I said with gluten I vomit and am sick for weeks.... fructose isn't that bad I vomit sometimes but I'm not sick for weeks.... I'm just confused on really what is going on and was wondering if you or someone you know had sibo from gluten and or fructose and how Is this all related?
    • I see no one has responded to your query.  Unfortunately I have yet to try making a pie crust.  It was something I never mastered before going gluten free.  Have you looked on Pinterest?  You might find something there.
    • I honestly feel like both doctors think it's all in my head even though there is proof.  Yeah there was a point when I felt crazy.  That was when I was being shuffled from dr to dr being given individual diagnoses of my problems.  None of those diagnoses ever made me get better.  Seriously I was diagnosed with heart palpitations, neurocardiogenic syncope, I was given a butt load of steroids because a dr felt like I was producing too much adrenaline, freaking had a few tell me I was depressed, and the good ol IBS.  It seemed most wanted to push pills.  It's all just ridiculous!
    • I can't believe your doctors!!! You have a daughter who is dx'd already! Yet the ped doesn't want to test your other kids unless you have a dx????!!! Are you kidding me???!!! That's absurd!!! They have a first degree relative who has been dx'd with celiac already. There is no need to wait to see what you turn out to be!! And then, and then, and then....don't even get me started on your doctor!!! Does he have brain damage? Oh this is insane & ridiculous!  I have never heard of a disease that doctors are so unwilling to consider or test for OR to diagnose as this one! Usually they are hot to trot to make a dx but say the word celiac & they shake in their boots. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
