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.  This is very helpful.  Our first post diagnosis grocery store trip took several hours, just trying to read labels to make sure everything is safe.   Our son loves bread and this going to be the hardest part. 
    • i would agree with most of your assessment but overall the popular chefs are very aware. Ed Kenny at Town did have  gluten-free options on the menu.  Mavro's will fix something special given advance notice but its expensive.  excellent but very expensive.  Alan Wong is very aware and will have his staff prepare something as well.  We did find many options at both Oahu  whole foods -- mostly  with tofu. the only thing  there is to be aware of cross contamination with things  next to it.  they make a great gluten-free southwestern tofo dish which is great but not if its sitting next to anything with gluten. Its not whole foods but people use the smae  spoons and tongs i found more at   down to earth in peal city than by  University ave  
    • Hi,  I'm in KOna but my kaiser doctor just retired  who was pretty good about it. I dont know of a specialist here  but most of hte kaiser docs wil test you if thats when you need to talk to them about. good luck  
    • Yes.  And wouldn't it have been nice if your doctor had tested you for Celiac disease before you went gluten free? Then you would know if your issues are Celiac or not.  That would help you know how careful you need to be, what other illnesses and problems to look for, whether you might be passing a genetic disease on to your children, if you should look for another cause of your symptoms, etc  
    • I would be very careful in giving this kind of advice, she is in an advanced stage. I was there and one additional symptom that I was getting was a strong urge to commit suicide so eating gluten for three months might not be the way to go for some people. If a gluten free diet stop the problems them gluten is the problem or a least part of it. I eliminated MSG from my diet because I notice that the common denominator for some products that affected my well being was MSG. I eliminated oats because I notice that I would get canker sores every time I ate it. Wheat is what affect my brain the most, irritability gets uncontrollable, my mental capacity greatly diminish, rash in my arms appear, can't sleep,etc. Barley makes my stomach groan, and constipated. Will try testing how Rye affect me some later time.
