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:

    • Do you mean something like a protein powder you could mix up?  A lot of them in the US seem to be gluten free.  Maybe just go to your local store and read all the labels?
    • Yeah I ended up allergic to corn, olives, sesame, whey, and peanuts and intolerant to dairy, soy, yeast, enzyme issues with breaking down meats, and egg yolks, along with extreme bloat with any kind of carbs/sugars in moderate amounts. And very adverse reactions to certain artificial sweeteners. So your not alone in all the other issues cropping up, it happens as our bodies adjust.  I eat a bunch of stir frys with veggies, egg whites, plenty of  avocados, and toasted and raw forms of almonds, coconut, cashews, walnuts, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, sancha inchi seeds, chia seeds, and sunflower seeds in all forms including making them into butters, spreads, and incorporating them into sauces.   Most meals are forms of soups, omelettes, and stir frys. I do the seeds and nuts on rotation same with my veggies and snack on fruits in small amounts along with some homemade baked goods I make for markets. I do suggest a rotation of foods, my dietician said I need to rotate my foods to prevent more issues, making sure I am off one one for at least 7-14 days at a time completely. I find changing up the spices and rotating my cuisine base works well. I also make puddings, and protein shakes along with nut/seed milks, and different bases and extract flavorings to get my random cravings Taken care of. Guess take what you can from this and and see how it can help you,    As to the tinging, I ended up with both B vitamin and magnesium deficiency issues, the magnesium one caused a fire like tingling in my arms, legs and back, along with muscle pain. Ended up on a doctors best powder form of it so I can dose it out right, and found epsom salt bathes helped.  
    • Hi, I've gained so much knowledge on this forum over the past few months, which I am so thankful for. I can see how much hell people are going through with this disease and it's so lovely to see how much support and advice people give to others on here. I'd like a little bit of reassurance and advice myself from anyone that can help. I've been gluten free for six months. Two weeks after going gluten free I realised I also had a problem with corn so cut out processed food. Over the following weeks and months I continually had problems with food; fruit, dairy, a lot of vegetables, nuts, soya....it's basically dwindled down to just eating potatoes (not white potatoes), cucumber, lettuce, small amounts of red onion, spring onion, sprouts and beetroot. There may be more things I could be okay with but to be honest I'm too scared to try.  Is this all normal? Am I an extreme case? I've been taking some digestive enzymes and probiotics for about six weeks, my acid reflux has dramatically decreased but I always have a lot of loud noises going on in my guts, I'm guessing this is the probiotics working.  I've lost nearly 3st in weight since this started - which I'm not complaining about as I was overweight due to thyroid problems. I've had loads of blood tests done recently, all organs are working 'great' according to my doctor, the only thing they've picked up on is ketones, I seem to be having a glucose problem, which might explain my exhaustion and weight loss. I also have permanent numbness and sometimes tingling in one of my legs and sometimes hands and one shoulder, I thought it could have vitamin B12 deficiency but that's okay according to blood tests. I would be greatful for any replies. Thanks for reading.
    • Hi everyone, I am doing job in restaurant at evening 5 to 12 during working hours no time to do a dinner. I'm thinking to make a shake but don't know the gluten free vitamin or supplement brand which one is good for me and easily available in Berlin Germany to make me fit cause last one week i feel weak. I'm 28 year old. Sincerely
    • Hey there just wanted to warn anyone that has other allergies- these crackers may not be a good choice! I'm mildly sensitive to MSG- I only react if there's a giant amount like in Chinese food or Ramen noodles, etc.  I literally have a to eat TONS of a the offending food before reacting.  Anyway, I was excited to try these Trader Joes pumpkin crackers, kept hearing about them on the radio .... and they're gluten free!  (I have Hashi's).  I ate about 3/4 of the box last night. Woke up this morning with a red itchy face and nasal congestion, headache, anxiety. Hallmark symptoms for me of high MSG intake. (It does say yeast extract on the side but it's pretty far down the list). So if you're sensitive.... stay away! Apparently these particular crackers are loaded with it.
