What Chemical Ingredient Names Are A Red Flag?

8 posts in this topic

Chanel is such a wonderful company. They FedExed me a list of their products that contain gluten/corn/soy ect. Most of their products were listed as not containing gluten, but there were a few that I had questions about so I emailed them back. They send me the full list of ingredients for each of those products, but now I'm left with tons of chemical names and don't know what they mean. Nowhere do I see the words wheat, barely or oats, but what other technical/chemical names should I look out for?

For instance:

Isostearyl Isosterate

Trimethylolpropand Triisostearate

Ozokerite

Polyethylene

Diisostearyl Malate

Polybutene

Caprylic/capric triglyceride

Lecithin

Stearalkonium Hectorite

Tocopherol

Ascorbyl Palmitate

Propylene Carbonate

Citric Acid

And what about dyes? ie Red6, Yellow6, Blue1

Thanks. This is complicated.....

It should say 'Contains Gluten' or 'May contain Gluten' in bold under the ingredients. Where I'm from anyways I'm pretty sure it's illegal not to

I've never seen any makeup or personal care products that are labeled like that. Most of the time we see a bunch of ingredients and have a hard time figuring out what they are (in the U.S. at least)

That's okay. Also in the US only wheat needs to be declared in foods plus the FDA is still trying to decide how to define gluten free. Companies are becoming more aware though and many are voluntarily declaring gluten clearly in ingredient lists now, as far as food is concerned.

So what do you all think of the ingredients? Is there a list out there somewhere of common chemicals that contain gluten?

I have a ton of these cosmetics, and I'd really love to be able to continue to use them.

I'd really appreciate some help. :(
