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!

    • by the way, I do find the lab who does the gluten sensitive test Gluten Allergy IgE Test This test is used to determine if a person has an allergic reaction to gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley, and rye.  Roughly 1 in 30 adults and 1 in 40 children suffer from a Gluten Allergy.  An IgE test looks for antibodies which develop in a person who has a particular allergy.  Gluten Allergy can display symptoms similar to other conditions such as Celiac Disease.  Unlike an allergy, Celiac Disease can do permanent harm to the body if left untreated.  Allergy testing when a person is experiencing symptoms can help identify or rule out an allergy as the cause.

      Gluten Allergy is typically less severe than other Gluten related conditions like Celiac Disease.  People with Gluten Allergy will often experience abdominal discomfort, bloating, gas, constipation, or diarrhea when they eat products containing gluten.  These symptoms usually stop when a person cuts gluten out of their diet.

      A Gluten Allergy IgE test can be ordered to help determine if someone allergic to gluten.  This test can also be ordered when a person is testing for Celiac Disease and has had negative results on Celiac specific antibody tests.  An allergy test can also be ordered prior to Celiac testing to rule out Gluten Allergy as a likely cause for a person’s symptoms.
    • so does it mean a person who carry dq2 or dq8 gene will have high chance to develp celiac disease if they continue to eat gluten or some other stuff trigger it??      
    • I just wanted to share my experience. I started with the endoscopy because I was having symptoms of a hernia + I had a colonoscopy at the same time to test for Chron's. While getting the scope the doctor noticed damage of the small intestine and did biopsies and they came back positive for Celiac disease. We followed up with the necessary blood work to confirm and those all came back like yours, negative, however my genetic testing was positive. So although rare, it is possible to test negative on the blood work and still have damage and be a positive. I don't know why my blood work was off, but I am glad I had the scope first because I would have never known the damage I was doing if I relied solely on the blood work. 
    • You're welcome. Good that you're having the gene test as well. If you DO have the gene(s) then you realize one can present with celiac at any point in life -- any age -- so you would need to be tested like you were, every 2 years in the absence of symptoms. If one develops symptoms then they need to be tested right away instead of waiting for the 2 yr. mark. It's not common, but is possible to test negative on the blood and still have villi damage on endoscopic biopsy. So depending on the results of the gene test....... you might see if your doc will do a endoscopy for you OR you might be what they refer to as something like a pre-celiac where you're not testing positive yet but most likely will soon.
    • Just don't give up.  Good luck and best wishes to you.  Let me know how it's going for you.  Been there, done this.  It ain't fun.
