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).

This is the list Clarins sent me of their products that contain Gluten:

Sativa) Starch, and/or Oats (Avena Sativa):

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:

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
    • Had my scope today. Dr said my esophagus is damaged and stomach inflamed. Waiting on biopsy results. Taking protonic and flagyl and he said to go ahead and try cutting gluten out to see if that helps. Thanks for the feedback everyone!
