Hi everyone! I'm new here. Please tell me where to look for gluten free toothpaste, mouthwash, lotion, shampoo and conditioners,soap, and makeup? Also, what about laundry detergent? And fabric softener?

Thank you so much!

Most toothpastes are gluten free, but I use Crest. Dove shampoo contains no gluten and I also use Lubriderm lotion.

I use Tom's of Maine toothpaste and when I use mouthwash I get one that is alcohol free. Arm and Hammer Free and Clear is my choice for detergent and fabric softener. For skin and hair care I like the Garneir line, they will clearly label gluten ingredients. Dove and Suave are also good about labeling.

Yesterday I created a poll on this site about this cleaning, cosmetic, and hair care favorites. I don't know where it is tho! Wrote to administrator and haven't heard back.

I use Suave and Dove products and for toothpaste I use Tom's too. Right now I also have Kiss my Face toothpaste, does anyone know off the top of their head if they're gluten-free?

Thanks

Love my Tom's of Maine toothpaste! I took awhile to get used to the taste but I've been using it for years now. I have a gluten-sensitive toddler, too, so I found California Baby soap, shampoo, conditioner, lotion and sunscreen in the baby aisle and I like their stuff -- very clearly labeled gluten-free. I get Tom's at Whole Foods and California Baby at WF or Target. Don't have much advice about makeup -- I'm still exploring that category but if you search here for old posts I think you'll find lots of tips and good brands. As for laundry detergent, I use 7th Generation from WF and don't think I've had any problems. Plus, not everyone will react to gluten contact on skin. I am more concerned about personal care products that could end up in my mouth by accident. But I did find these things called soap nuts at Whole Foods and I tried them on a whim and they seem to really work! No gluten, no toxins, less pollution. Kind of weird but neat!

I definitely had a noticeable improvement when I switched out my hair, face and body products to gluten free.

Haven't seen a toothpaste with gluten in it.

I only use salon quality products. Matrix Biolage and Enjoy are two that I like Redken has tons of wheat in their stuff but they have an anti aging line that has no gluten that's very good. I use Biosilk leave in treatment after I wash and condition. I think Biosilk shampoo and conditioner have wheat, but their leave in treatment does not. It's clear in a clear bottle and does magic on your hair. B

H2O Plus is amazing face care products. I've been using for 10 years and I have zero wrinkles or aging on my face even though I'm 40. When I was 30 I saw signs of aging and stopped it with their stuff. They sell it at Ulta and online. There are some stores too but not many.

Love Bare Minerals for make up. Also Mac lipsticks. Most are safe but check ingredients to be sure. The Longwear is great. I also use a lot of stuff from Benefit.

I use Suave shower gels for hand soap. My skin on my hands is sensitive and it doesn't irritate them.

Bath and Body Works don't have gluten. Not that I've seen anyway. Read labels to be sure of different scents though.

I forgot to mention I also use Savonnerie, they have gluten-free (and top 8 free) lotions, soaps, lipbalms and shampoos. Sometimes they have sales, you can purchase this online. It's quite pricey but works really well. For DD I use California Baby, also pricey.

I also like Bare Minerals makeup.

Alba skin and hair care products and mineral sunscreens are gluten free. I also use Bare Minerals makeup, love them! I can't use chemical sunscreens, so I use the Bare Minerals as my sunscreen. They also have a powder sunscreen that works pretty well, although it washes off too easily.

I use Uncle Harry's products. You can find them in some food co-ops and health food stores, but they also ship from their location in Washington State. They are totally all natural. I especially like their tooth products, though not at all like regular stuff, i.e., don't foam (the thing that makes toothpaste foam is not good for you [sLS]). So if you're going for uber natural, check out Uncle Harry's. I also use Desert Organics shampoo and conditioner sometimes, though I like California Baby as well. We have really hard water here, so it's hard to get a lather on the natural products.

Good luck.

There is a company called Beauty Control that offers gluten free face care and makeup. People can order on-line. I have use one of there products for years and plan to switch to all their products now that I am a Celiac.

I use Auromere toothpaste because I needed something that was gluten-free and sorbitol free. My teeth have never felt so clean! They're squeaky dentist-clean every day. My last two dental appointments the hygienist remarked how amazing my teeth looked. I had no plaque and no tartar either time. All the diet changes have made a huge difference and I have good teeth (meaning, not problematic). Now I have great teeth.

Does anyone know for sure if SENSODYNE does or does not contain Gluten? Seems like the only thing one can find is "we're not sure our supplies are gluten free" dodgey answers from the Sensodyne company?

Here is a previous discussion about Sensodyne: (although 2 years old, it's still informative)

    • amalgam dental fillings - remove or not?
      Yes, I meant mercury not lead, thank you for the correction. That's what happens when I stay on the computer until late at night.  The symptoms I have now resemble my gluten reaction and I know it's almost impossible that I would be getting glutened. I remember someone here mentioning that he/she had amalgam fillings removed and it helped, but that was few years back. That's why I posted it here.

      akohlman--I am exactly 1 month from being diagnosed and still going through cleaning out of all the gluten foods from my life. I have really bad Dermatitis Herpetiformis but other wise I had no reason to think I had something like Celiac Disease. That being said, I TOTALLY understand. For me... its hard to be sick and not feel sick if that makes sense.....   I'm going to make the changes. I'm going to live a gluten-free life but like you... I STILL am devastated. I'm overweight... so obviously I don't have a healthy relationship with food, LOL, so I'm DYING at the idea of never eating Pizza Hut, Chili's Pasta, Red Lobster Pasta, McDonalds, etc. I don't care what anyone says.... that is a HUGE adjustment for me and I'm still reeling from the "loss".   That being sad.... I have 3 children and a husband depending on me and I'll do all I can to lengthen my lifespan so.... Here is to new journeys.   YOU ARE NOT ALONE in your sadness!

      The way to fix food intolerance symptoms is to stop eating the food causing the symptoms.  Dark Angel is right, there are very few tests for food intolerances.  Mostly we have to test ourselves through diet experiments.  Typically an elimination diet of some sort is used.  Eliminating food groups is one way, or cutting back to just a few foods and building from there is another.  Changing your diet is the way to go.

      Hi akohlman, It is quite an adjustment.  But it isn't a bad change.  While you have to give up some foods you may also end up finding other foods you really enjoy.  And most likely you will be eating a more nutritious, healthier diet than many of your friends do. Try to stick to whole foods you cook at home for a while.  If you want to eat out you can take food with you, or spend some time on the web searching out gluten-free restaurants on your area.  But to get started learning, it is best to cook you own food.  Meat, veggies, eggs, nuts and fruit should be the main foods you eat.  Maybe dairy will work for you, maybe not. It can take months for the immune reaction to stop and your body to heal enough to absorb nutrients properly.  It is good to get your vitamin and mineral levels checked so you know which might be low.  Even a tiny crumb of gluten can make us sick.  Cross contamination is a real problem.  And since the immune reaction doesn't stop when the food leaves your body, you have to be careful what you eat/drink.  But after you have been doing the gluten-free diet a while you get used to eating different and it becomes the new normal.

      I was told by the allergist that there are not tests currently for food intolerance, just testing for allergies.  Maybe it depends on the practitioner that you go to.  That would be a relevant question as well as histamine intolerance testing/treatment when choosing a practitioner.  It is helpful to keep a food log with reactions for reference for yourself and the health care professional that you might consult.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
