I have purchased some speciality make-up that was marketed as gluten free, but would still like the option of buying cosmetics at the pharmacy and department store. What are the gluten ingredients commonly used in cosmetics that I need to be wary of when shopping? I know of a few: wheat germ oil, hydrolized wheat protein, and oat fiber. Are there any others?

Thank you so much for providing that list. Dextrin and maltodextrin are on the safe ingredient list provided by this site. Is this debatable information? I am assuming something would not be considered safe to eat and unsafe for cosmetics.

Thanks again!

Tocopherol and Tocopheral Acetate can sometimes contain wheat. We usually call if we see that ingredient to see if it was sourced from wheat.

Food and cosmetics have different labeling regs. If dextrin or maltodextrin are wheat derived in food they must be declared as derived from wheat and are usually from corn in the US. In cosmetics and drugs the source does not not need to be disclosed. That may be why it is on the cosmetics list.

Eeeeek! Now I am nervous. The hand sanitizer I use every day has Tocopheryl Acetate (vitamin e) listed in the ingredients. I have tried to research but naturally I am finding conflicting information. I have info that says tocopheryl acetate is derived from soy, a few say it can sometimes be derived from wheat. I have seen online that a TON of gluten free speciality products contain this ingredient. So does anyone know the scoop or have more info on tocopheryl or tocopheryl acetate??

I swear I will never fully grasp this gluten-free lifestyle. Ugh, things are always lurking!

I am sorry to interfere, I have no answer but related concerns...hope this is ok :)

I was recently wondering about burt's bees products cause I use some, and a lot of them have tocopherol (origin not precised), so I contacted them and they replied I should check the ingredients, but that even for the products not containing gluten ingredients, they can't guaranty the gluten-free status -because of possible cc.
So it leaves me still wondering: not just because the possible cc, but also because they didn't precise the tocopherol thing.
I am sad, I love this brand! (and their honey lip balm!!) but it is too important, I can't overlook the problem (the lip balm is an important question for everyone; and the shampoo in my mouth/ ingesting hand cream because I eat some finger food after can definitely happen to me!)

Anyone has advice on another brand?? I am definitely picky, very dry & sensitive skin here, so I need gluten-free + organic/ no chemicals products...the less ingredients, the best!
I seem to always have problems finding a cream that moisturizes my hands enough (I usually use foot cream :))
...recently began using coconut oil and its great for my body but doesn't really do it for my hands (shampoo shouldn't be too hard, just need something soft on my skin)
Heard of "california baby", any feedback on that ??

Thank you!

Sophie

I have recently contacted the following companies:

ALOETTE: NOT Gluten-Free

***Thank you for your interest in Aloette! We are sorry for the
inconvenience but, Astral Brands does not currently have a product list
for our products that contain gluten. We would like to explain that most
of our raw materials come from many different suppliers and we use
multiple sources in the manufacture of our products. Due to this, it is
possible that small amounts of a wheat sourced ingredient may remain on
shared manufacturing equipment even after thorough cleaning, causing
concern for cross contamination in our products.Therefore, it is not possible for us to fully guarantee that our
products are completely free of ingredients that may cause an allergic
reaction in sensitive individuals who react to gluten.***

L'OREAL: Gives a gluten ingredient list:

***Avena Sativa (Oat) Kernel Flour
Avena Sativa (Oat) Kernel Extract
Avena Sativa (Oat) Kernel Oil
Avena Sativa (Oat) Bran
Cocodimonium Hydroxypropyl Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein
Cyclodextrin
Dextrin
Dextrin Palmitate
Disodium Wheatgermamphodiacetate
Hordeum Vulgare Extract
Hydrolyzed Malt Extract
Hydrolyzed Oat Flour

Hydrolyzed Oats
Hydrolyzed Wheat Flour
Hydrolyzed Wheat Gluten
Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein
Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein/PVP Crosspolymer
Hydrolyzed Wheat Starch

Triticum Vulgare (Wheat) Germ Oil
Triticum Vulgare (Wheat) Gluten
Triticum Vulgare (Wheat) Starch
Wheat Amino Acids
Wheat Germ Glycerides
Wheat Germamidopropalkonium Chloride
Wheat Protein
Wheatgermamidopropyl Ethyldimonium Ethosulfate
Yeast Extract

OLAY: Some are (the entire PRO X line), some are not (but they did not resist the temptation to tell me that my inquiry was not necessary, according to their consulted doctors, as the items are applied externally - which seemed to insult the very nature of my inquiry as well as both my experience and intelligence)

***We know Celiac is a serious disease, so we want to give you clear information regarding the use of our beauty care products. If wheat and/or gluten aren't directly added to a product by us, these ingredients won't be listed on our packages. Like many companies, we often purchase the scents for fragranced products from outside suppliers, and the components of these substances are proprietary information belonging to those companies. Therefore it's possible that a very small amount (generally parts per million) of gluten may be present. It may be helpful to know that the entire Pro X line is gluten free.

We sought advice from physicians; they told us it would be very unlikely a person with Celiac disease would have a reaction from a trace amount of gluten coming into contact with his skin or hair. This is because wheat, rye, barley and/or gluten generally cause symptoms when they're ingested. Since our beauty care products are designed to be used externally on the skin, their use shouldn't be an issue for someone with this disease.

Since gluten sensitivity can vary among people, it would be best if you consulted with your physician about the use of all types of consumable goods, if you haven't already. You might even consider using one of our fragrance free products that doesn't list gluten or wheat extracts on the label.

Thanks again for getting in touch with us. I hope this response has been helpful to you. For more information about Celiac, you may want to check out http://celiac.com/ and http://celiac.org***

I contacted Estee Lauder regarding the skincare and cosmetic line. I received a pretty comprehensive list below. However, I'm thinking that if it's probably safe to use their eye shadows as long as it doesn't get ingested. Thoughts?


Dear,

Thank you for taking the time to contact us and for your interest in Estée Lauder.

For the benefit of our gluten-sensitive consumers who may have cross-sensitivities, Estee Lauder takes the extra precaution of including soy, corn and rice in our research in addition to wheat, oat, barley and rye derivatives.

In addressing your concern about gluten, we would like to explain that a vast number of raw materials from many different suppliers and sources are used in the manufacture of Estee Lauder Companies' products. It is therefore not possible for us to fully guarantee that our products are completely free of ingredients that may elicit an allergic response in highly sensitive individuals who react to gluten. For example, it is possible that small amounts of a wheat sourced ingredient may remain on shared manufacturing equipment even after a thorough cleaning. We therefore recommend that you discuss this with your physician, because consumer safety is of utmost concern to us.

Signature Eyeshadow contains corn, soy, wheat, barley

Pure Color Eyeshadow contains corn, soy, wheat, barley

MagnaScopic Mascara contains corn, soy

More Than Mascara contains corn, soy

Projectionist Mascara contains corn, soy

Sumptuous Mascara contains soy

Lash Primer contains soy, wheat

Double Wear Mascara no gluten

Day Wear Plus contains wheat, barley, soy

Please provide the exact names of the toners, cleanser and eye moisturizer so that we may do a gluten search for you.

We Look forward to hearing from you.


Sincerely,


Global Consumer Communications
