Gluten And Soy Free Lotions, Shampoos, Cosmetics, Etc.

4 posts in this topic

I just found out that in addition to my gluten intolerance I also have a soy intolerance. I'm dairy free too but that doesn't seem to be an issue in these self care products. This has thrown me for a loop. I just finished vetting all my food and personal items to rid the gluten and now I have to go through the entire process again. I'm finding that when something is gluten free it contains soy and vice versa. I had to toss all my lipsticks, glosses, lotions, shampoos because they all had soy.

I thought I'd share what I have found so far in case it may be helpful for someone else. If you have any gluten-free/soy-free products you love please share!

I went to the MAC counter at Macy's and they let me flip though their binder that has all of their products and ingredients! I didn't even know such a binder existed! I was on a mission to find a gluten-free/soy-free lipstick and lipgloss. I was surprised to see how variant the ingredients were from one lipstick to another. Here are two that are gluten-free and soy-free: lipglass (a gloss), and slimshine lipstick. It was quite busy so I didn't check the other products such as eye shadow, mascara blush but will go back at another time to do so. They couldn't have been nicer or more helpful.

Next up was stopping at Whole Foods where I got California Baby bath products. One is a body wash and shampoo combo and the other is a lotion. They're gluten-free/soy-free and free of other allergens too. I haven't tried the body wash/shampoo yet but it smells nice. The lotion is very nice, not greasy.

It's expensive to be gluten-free/SF!! But I just can't go without a bit of lipgloss and my beloved Burt's Bees contain soy.

If you use any type of mineral powders, you can check out www.signatureminerals.com. I emailed them a few weeks back, and all of their mineral products are gluten free (that does not go for their skin care and body care, as it is all natural and they do use oats and wheat for some.) Their ingredients are listed on their site, and I can vouch for the minerals: they are absolutely amazing.

Thanks ciavyn, I'll check that out.

I prematurely tossed some of my lotions and glosses but fortunately they can be retrieved from my bin (nothing but papers in there!).

My Avon body wash, lotions and glazewear lipglosses are gluten and soy free! I'm so glad Avon puts the ingredients on their website in nice big print. I got so frustrated reading the ingredients on the bottles in tiny tiny print I just tossed them to be sure.

I'm also glad soy has to be declared as an ingredient. Even if the ingredient is something science-y and impossible to decipher it would say soy in parentheses at the end like so, HBFADFHJVK (soy). I wish gluten had to be declared the same way. Would make our lives easier.

Feeling less overwhelmed about finding gluten-free and soy-free products.

I'm beginning to feel more at ease with having to deal with this soy intolerance on top of my gluten and dairy issues.

Cheers

:)

This just made me pull out all of my products and take a look at them. Fortunately I DON'T have the soy issue because I love Burt's Bees lip glosses and lotions. My shampoo has soy, but my conditionaer does not. I use "Organix" Shea Butter conditioner. The longer you leave it in, the softer it makes your hair. (I find it at my local drug store) I also put a small dab of "Organics" Red Raspberry Conditioner (found at Whole Foods) on the ends of my hair and don't rinse it out. I don't see soy listed in the ingredients but emulsifying wax is vegetable derived, so it'd have to be checked out. Since using the combination of those two conditioners my hair is softer than it's been in a long time, and I color frequently.

I feel for you! It IS expensive to live this way.

    • Marip, Have you been diagnosed with celiac disease or Non-celiac Gluten Intolerance?  I notice you joined in 2014.  Did you ever go guten free?  How can we help?   Sorry, I'm not a stool expert!  You could Google it...  Malabsorption?  Standard lab tests that check for anemia and vitamin deficiencies, etc.  should help make that diagnosis.  
    • You can eat just a slice or two (or equivalent) of bread a day for accurate testing.   I understand about the high deductibles.  We're self-employed and we pay for our health insurance. 
    • Sure, if it's gluten free, then fine.  I am very allergic (like anaphylactic) to ibuprofen and aspirin.  So, in my case, I would just tough it out.  Go to bed.  Sleep it off.....eventually. My money is on the garlic and onions.  I can't consume those either (damn that zonulin/leaky gut -- google it along with Dr. Fasano).  I just season with salt, pepper.  Boring.  But no gut issues.  I'm hoping like my lactose intolerance (resolved), that I will get garlic and onions back.   Finally, sometimes just eating anything can hurt when you still have intestinal damage.  Hopefully, you'll feel better in two or three hours if it's celiac related.  Longer if it's an intolerance (leaky gut thing....) Hugs!      
    • I read on their website that all Advil is gluten free, I had such bad pinching cramping today(which I don't why since I prepared all my food at home today.) I made a pot roast, salt garlic, onions...No gluten but still pain, That's the only thing I ate today..I don't eat breakfast or anything.   Anyways.   Is it a good idea to take Advil for the cramping? That's how I would describe it like someone is reaching inside me and pinching me and twisting my insides.    This is what I took  
    • I'll give my PCP a call tomorrow and see what they can offer. My only worry is the expense as anymore tests will put me behind in being able to afford to see the GI. I have high deductible insurance but get money put into my HSA. I'm still trying to pay off the CT scan though. Which is why I'm trying to pick and choose which poses the greatest risk for me right now and what can wait. (Though I would prefer not to wait on any of it.)

      I really do hope its only IBS. Though I always worry IBS is more or less a doctors way of saying "I have no clue" at that point. :C

      Again, I'll be sure to give my PCP a call tomorrow then and see what the options are. I can feel a lot better trying the blood work first. however, once that is done, do I still need to be on a gluten diet before the endoscopy? Also, is it ok if I still mildly reduce the gluten. As in, can I avoid a whole wheat pasta dinner, but still be eating the peanut butter crackers? That sort of thing. Again I guess that is more of a doctor related question. I just wasn't sure if in order to raise your chance, you have to mass consume gluten or not. (Its already in just about everything to begin with.)   --Edit--
      I just now reread the part that you still need to be on the gluten foods even for biopsy so I'll be sure to do that too.
