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)

    • Hi lolobaggins, Yes, it is not unusual to have symptoms that come and go after going gluten-free.  Edema (swelling) can also be a symptom of an allergic reaction.  Fatigue is not fun but remember your body is trying to heal a major organ, your gut.  So some rest might be a good idea.  The immune system response is going to keep going for several weeks to several months.  Each little bit of gluten kicks the immune response off again and extends the healing time.  So it's helpful to be very careful with your diet. Meats, vegetable, and nuts are good foods to eat at the beginning.  And whole foods rather than processed foods.  Dairy is often a problem until the villi are healed.  After a few weeks if things are going well you can try to add one new food a week and see how things go.  But take it slow and easy.  The fewer foods/ingredients we are eating the easier it is to identify problem foods. Welcome to the forum!
    • Welcome to the club that you never wanted to join!  (I plagiarized that from someone else here but can't recall who so I can't give credit to them.) Anyway, there is a steep learning curve to being gluten free.  It takes time to learn to read labels.  It takes time to heal (like months to YEARS).  Symptoms can wax or wane.  You just have to keep moving forward.  Give yourself time to heal and do not worry about the gym right now.  It will come back later, I promise (from a gal who cycles, swims, and runs).   Read our Newbie 101 section pinned at the top of the "Coping" section.  It contains valuable tips about cross contamination and hidden sources of gluten.  Read, read, read, the internet from reliable sources (not crazy bloggers).   You will feel better soon.  
    • Ha!    That happens to me all the time!!!!!  It drives me crazy!
    • "Accidentally marked them soy free".  Are you kidding?  That's fraud!  Consumer Reports just issued a huge report this month on supplements.   Yes, everyone thinks they are all "natural" and therefore safe.  Doctors and nurses recommend them all the time, but they can do a lot of damage.  Anyone can start making them in their bathroom and there's literally no regulation.   Geez, it is safer to buy food products (no gluten ingredients listed) from companies like Kraft and ConAgra because they are regulated more!  http://www.consumerreports.org/cro/magazine/2016/09/index.htm What about the probiotics?  Columbia University tested about 20 of them and found that over half had gluten in them.....enough to make celiacs  remain sick. https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2015/05/150515083232.htm Think twice about taking supplements.  Make sure you really medically need supplements.  I prefer certified gluten-free if I need to take them and I take nothing right now because all my labs are okay!  You have been on the gluten-free bandwagon for many years (member here for years).  Your doctors should be looking at other things that might be making you sick still.  Something is wrong!   That's my two cents!    
    • Hi Schlafentzug, The usual diagnosis process is a blood test for antibodies first, followed up by an endoscopy to check for gut damage.  You have to eat gluten for 12 weeks before the blood tests. It sounds like your brother may have celiac disease also.  His gut lining villi were damaged by something, and villi flattening  is a common celiac disease indicator.  Being shorter than other family members is also a common indicator. The excessive gas is probably from bad digestion.  The gut damage interferes with proper digestion and some enzymes aren't made.  Lactase is made by the villi in the gut. You should definitely get tested and before going gluten-free IMHO.
