Could you post a link to this list? Some of the items appear to be soy, corn (which does have gluten but is not an issue celiac wise), and coconut derived.

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



Hi Sophie,

I know you posted this a while ago, but I found Ecco Bella online and they are great. The lotion is great and they also have an entire line of cosmetics that are gluten free, organic and cruelty free. They all work great!

This is very helpful information! Thank you to those of you who have researched this! I am wondering about the coloring:
FD & C Red No. 4, Red No. 33, Blue No. 1, and Yellow No. 5 in lotions and soaps? Does anyone know if these are things to stay away from? Thank you.

I recently ordered from Afterglow Cosmetics...their products are all gluten free, sulfate and paraben free! I am waiting for my order to arrive but the reviews are wonderful! Also Burt's Bees has a gluten free list that is fairly extensive. I don't have the list currently as my grocery store lists the gluten free products.

You may need to check each product you use with the company. Or you can post your favorites here and folks might know if the item is safe. Most department and drugstore brands will have some items that are safe and some that aren't so it isn't ususaly possible to give a 'blank' company is gluten-free.
Some companies will have a list of safe items on their website or will send you a list if you call their 800 numbers.

I'm sorry I'm not answering your question about drugstore brands, but I just recently found this company - http://www.everydayminerals.com.

I contacted them, and they said all their products are gluten free, vegan based, and free of carmine, nuts, lake dyes, fragrance, bismuth oxychloride and parabens.

Their products are SERIOUSLY reasonably priced (and I'm cheap!), plus they offer FREE samples of their foundation to help you choose your coverage/color.

I have to agree their products are great and the samples make it inexpensive to try and see if you like it. Well worth waiting a few days for it to come in the mail.

After calling Neutrogena, Revlon, L'Oreal, Maybelline, etc. I started to pick up a pattern. Will they put their assurances in WRITING. Many will not. From some companies, I got a positive answer from the call line, and a we cannot comment or assure you of that in an e-mail when I sent a separate e-mail request to the same company. I repeatedly got answers that referred me to the call line, where I would get a representative where everything (or most everything) I asked about was magically "gluten-free." But the company would put nothing in writing (a Neutrogena rep even informed me that they don't have e-mail so she could not send me the list in writing).

After a while, I got suspicious.

And really, when a company gets as large as some of these are they get their product components from bidding for the lowest price possible from multiple vendors. The company has not overseen every component of their products from start to finish; many times(or even most of the time) they cannot guarantee the exact sourcing or lack of contamination of the products.

Maybe, just maybe, they are too big to really care about little ole us.

I've used products from Neutrogena, Revlon, L'Oreal and Maybelline without issue. Since I don't ingest them nor do I have DH, I've had no problems using them. I think personal care products are generally more difficult to verify the gluten-free status. Most companies give a standard CYA response.

Edit: I should qualify that to say that obviously lipsticks or lip balms do need to be gluten-free.

I do think that using these products is on a personal trial and error basis.
You have to consider the following:

*How sensitive you are (are you still getting sick while using a certain product[s] every now and then - when there seem to be no other possibilities)
*How prone you may be to make an absent-minded mistake that could end up with "trace ingestion" of these products (forgetting to wash hands before touching food after application - or being rushed and eating while applying).
*The possibilities within your own budget

There may be more things to consider, but these three have been the most important factors in my product choice decisions.

I definitely agree with you...it's a personal decision. And I'm cheap, too. :lol: I used to be a product snob and would now rather buy gluten-free flours! ;)

For hand cream or lotion, CeraVe is gluten-free and is available at Wally World, as well as drug stores. That's a product that definitely needs to be gluten-free.

...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)


I've been using the hand cream from Andalou (Andalou Naturals?...it isn't in front of me so I can't remember exact name...) I like it as it is strong but doesn't leave my hands feeling greasy. I order it online but have found it at my local organic market. Once you order from them the first time online they will send you lots of email deals for 'sales' of specific items so I wait for a 20% off email coupon and then stock up!

I've also just started using the lip balm from Neutrogena Naturals -- that whole line is gluten free. I like it.
