Gluten Free Cosmetics & Body Care Products For Celiacs
0

9 posts in this topic

I wanted to start a topic about gluten free makeup & body care products for those of us who have celiac. I thought it would be fun to trade product info. as it is so frustrating and time consuming trying to figure out which products are "safe." I try to find ones that also don't contain any parabens or "bad" ingredients.

Here's what I currently use:

For lipsticks and lip liners - Jane Iredale, Mineral Fusion, Glo Minerals, & Burts Bees Lip Shimmers

Concealer - Jane Iredale

Mascara - Tarte

Body lotion - Shikai Borage

Shampoo & conditioner - Head Organics

Hand soap - Kiss My Face Fragrance Free Moisture Soap

I've also read that Lavera & Afterglow cosmetics are gluten free but I haven't tried them yet.

What gluten free products have you found that you like? (Makeup, lotions, sunscreens, self-tanners, soaps, shampoos & conditioners, shaving cream, etc.)

Also, I am looking for a new gluten free concealer, solid face powder, and am always on the lookout for new lipsticks/lip liners. Any recommendations?

I too use Kiss My Face (olive or olive oil) soap for body and hands.

For high end cleanser, Peter Thomas Roth is gluten-free. They sent me a whole list of their other gluten-free products.

A lot of Yonka is gluten-free. Creme 11 for example. And their Optimizer.

I also use Shikai body and face moisturizer, although the latter can smell disconcertingly like chicken broth when you first put it on!

(Kiehl's has gluten)

I use Mary Kay lip gloss with color. Otherwise, no makeup.

I am still on the lookout for more gluten-free products. I am using up my gluten containing shampoo. I just can't waste it.

Kirkland ( Costco) shampoo and conditioner are gluten-free and I was surprised the changes in my hair- not losing as much, less spilt ends, softer, etc. Price is great too.

I just got Joelle (my mineral glitters). Just put it on for the first time. It went on well, blends well. I think I got too dark a blush (True Rose) as I'm very fair skinned. Next time I plan to try cotton candy. The prices were comparable to Avon. The blush was smaller than Avon's however that could be due to the fact I bought the complete kit which included a blush. The eyeshadow in the kit is much bigger than the eye shadow I bought separate.

Just as a side note, Burt's Bees products may be cross-contaminated, according to the company. I used to use it and my lips would break out so I called the company to see if it was 100% gluten-free and they said it may be CCed. Now I use Soft lips brand, which is 100% gluten free, their whole factory is gluten free!

I'm a little late jumping on this bandwagon, but I use PRIIA and Origins. PRIIA has to be ordered online, and not everything at Origins is gluten-free, but the saleslady was really helpful. (They're at Macy's.) I also have one of Red Apple Lipstick's products and love it.

For nail polish, all I have tried so far is Zoya. They don't have a large color range in my local Whole Foods, so I may need to order that online, as well.

Quick question: I'm thinking about starting a blog about living/going gluten free. It would be basically a compilation of all of my research into gluten-free foods, products, restaurants, etc. Would this interest anyone, and/or be helpful? Thanks!

    • Thanks Stephanie & Gemini for the info. that the 4 of 5 doesn't apply to children. I wasn't aware of that until now. 
    • I think the posters above have given you very good information and I will throw in my 2 cents worth.  I am surprised that they did not test her DGP IgA also.  I am sure that would have been positive.  They switched off with antibody classes and usually they do both tests for both antibodies.  IgA is more specific to Celiac but the IgG is also useful.  The testing shows your daughter is producing antibodies to the gluten in her diet. (DGP IGG). THe tTg shows positive for some damage or inflammation. You know........your daughter is only 4.  She hasn't been on the planet or eating gluten that long. It can take years for enough damage to occur for it to be able to be found on biopsy.  I would say it is highly likely that this is Celiac, especially with her symptoms. But because the damage hasn't graduated to bad enough yet, they won't diagnose her. I think you need to do what others have said and get all copies of testing and find someone else who will take a look and give a diagnosis, especially if they have you do a dietary trial and her symptoms go away.  That might be the only recourse if you want faster proof. I know I would want faster.  I would not really be happy if I thought I had to keep feeding her something that was making her sick.  If you keep her on gluten long enough, the diarrhea will probably show up. BTW.........the criteria mentioned regarding diagnosis does not apply to kids.  I know it's silly and stupid but most leading Celiac specialists do not go by this criteria for kids.......adults only.  Keep that in mind because it might come up.  You could recognize it but they might not. Have you considered gene testing, to help bolster a diagnosis? As far as false positives go, it's the other way around. False negatives happen more frequently than many people think.  It's a recurring theme here.  With her symptoms, which is what I had, a bloated belly and tummy aches are telling.  Have they tested her for lactose intolerance?  That can cause similar symptoms, although it sure won't raise those 2 blood tests.  Keep looking for Celiac because there are many red flags here.
    • This 4 out of 5 criteria does not apply to children. I was never given a reason why, but it isn't.     That said, you may try to get a second opinion from another GI who may be willing to give her a firm dx.  We were in your boat 6 years ago and while I'm sure I'll get slammed for it, I wish we had kept gluten in our kiddos diet till he scoped positive for a variety of reasons.  Again, even family is different and you have to find what is best for you!
    • Mnoosh, I had swollen lymph nodes prior to celiac dx and for a while after going gluten free. My neck as well as groin. The groin ones were the worst. Guess what? All gone! It's hard to recall a time line & consider that everyone is different but I think mine completely resolved within a year.  You've been given great information. Just breathe and then again, breathe. You're going to be fine. 
    • It is the only thing you have eaten, so it can't be anything else?  I eat it with no issues so I am not sure how you can be certain that is the problem.  All I am saying is that its sort of "your word against mine and the company's word".
