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)

    • First, do you have celiac disease?  Have you recently had a celiac antibodies follow-up blood test panel to see if gluten has been actually getting into your diet by accident or through cross contamination?  If you haven't had the test, you should ask your doctor for one.  You could also also ask for a follow-up endoscopy to see if you intestines have truly healed.  This will rule out if gluten is really the problem.    If you don't have celiac, I assume you have Non-celiac gluten Intolerance because no one would stick to the gluten-free diet for six years unless you have had reductions in symptoms.  There is no test for NCGI unfortunately.  So, it is hard to say if gluten has been sneaking into your diet.  You really are going to have to try to figure out if you are getting gluten into your diet.  If gluten is not the problem, then your doctor needs to check you for other issues, like SIBO. There is a test to check for SIBO.  Has this been done?   Once a celiac, always a celiac.  There is no cure for celiac disease except to remain on a gluten free diet for life.  I am not sure about NCGI.  Not much research has been done.  Maybe others can chime in?    
    • I am so confused right now.... 6 years ago I went on gluten free diet... after being on it for the first yr I was 100%better up until 5 months ago in got the "flu" the doctors told me to cut out dairy sonic did and my diarrhea  became better but not completely gone would not have it every day tho. I went to the gi doctor and they said to cut out fructose and dairy and keep gluten out... yesterday I went to the dietitian to see what I can eat and she gave me the list for fructose... she said it should have been on a antibiotic for sibo.... eventually I will be able to add dairy back and maybe gluten.... I said how can I add gluten back when this was my first problem... she goes well through fructose goes hand in hand with it... I said with gluten I vomit and am sick for weeks.... fructose isn't that bad I vomit sometimes but I'm not sick for weeks.... I'm just confused on really what is going on and was wondering if you or someone you know had sibo from gluten and or fructose and how Is this all related?
    • I see no one has responded to your query.  Unfortunately I have yet to try making a pie crust.  It was something I never mastered before going gluten free.  Have you looked on Pinterest?  You might find something there.
    • I honestly feel like both doctors think it's all in my head even though there is proof.  Yeah there was a point when I felt crazy.  That was when I was being shuffled from dr to dr being given individual diagnoses of my problems.  None of those diagnoses ever made me get better.  Seriously I was diagnosed with heart palpitations, neurocardiogenic syncope, I was given a butt load of steroids because a dr felt like I was producing too much adrenaline, freaking had a few tell me I was depressed, and the good ol IBS.  It seemed most wanted to push pills.  It's all just ridiculous!
    • I can't believe your doctors!!! You have a daughter who is dx'd already! Yet the ped doesn't want to test your other kids unless you have a dx????!!! Are you kidding me???!!! That's absurd!!! They have a first degree relative who has been dx'd with celiac already. There is no need to wait to see what you turn out to be!! And then, and then, and then....don't even get me started on your doctor!!! Does he have brain damage? Oh this is insane & ridiculous!  I have never heard of a disease that doctors are so unwilling to consider or test for OR to diagnose as this one! Usually they are hot to trot to make a dx but say the word celiac & they shake in their boots. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
