Just curious about whether this product has been tried by anyone who experiences issues with gluten reactions on their face. I have DH, it mainly shows up on my face and scalp. I use gluten free makeup, lotion, shampoos as well as other products. This product is not said to have gluten, and their website states that it is safe for those on a gluten free diet, but I don't want to just take their word for it. Anyone tried it yet??? It takes me weeks to recover from an accidental gluten ingestion, so I don't really want to just try it with out scoping it out. Thanks so much for your time!!!! =)

I have no answer for you as I haven't been wearing make up at all & I'm a newbie at this whole gluten thing. I was looking at my Suave shampoo which all the sites say is gluten free but I see there is Tocopheryl Acetate in it so now I'm worried because it seems that is gluten. Sooooo....can you tell me what make up, lotion, shampoos & other stuff you use & is okay to use? Please? I keep getting bad DH outbreaks in my scalp & worry gluten will go in the sores. I'm sooo tired of this --- it's mind boggling!

I'm trying to stay from everything for a while because I had so many troubles with the so many (including "gluten-free" but with gums etc) products. The worst one was with:

Total Effects Gentle UV Moisturiser with SPF 15

http://www.olay.com.au/au/Pages/TotalEffectsProducts.aspx?f_producttype=facial+moisturisers

" Full Ingredients "

ACTIVE INGREDIENTS: 4% OCTYL SALICYLATE, 2% AVOBENZONE, 1% PHENYLBENZIMIDAZOLE SULFONIC ACID, 1% OCTOCRYLENE. ALSO CONTAINS: WATER, NIACINAMIDE , DIMETHICONE , ISOPROPYL ISOSTEARTATE, POLYACRYLAMIDE, TRIETHANOLAMINE, ZINC OXIDE, MAGNESIUM ASCORBYL PHOSPHATE, CAMELLIA OLEIFERA LEAF EXTRACT , STEARYL ALCOHOL, C13-14 ISOPARAFFIN, CETYL ALCOHOL, PTFE, PANTHENOL, TOCOPHERYL ACETATE , TITANIUM DIOXIDE, BEHENYL ALCOHOL, DIMETHICONOL , SUCROSE POLYCOTTONSEEDATE, ETHYLPARABEN, BENZYL ALCOHOL, METHYLPARABEN, CARBOMER, LAURETH-7, PROPYLPARABEN, CETEARYL GLUCOSIDE, CETEARYL ALCOHOL, PEG-100 STEARATE, DISODIUM EDTA, STEARIC ACID, AMMONIUM POLYACRYLATE, OLETH 3-PHOSPHATE, VITAMIN B3, PRO-VITAMIN B5, VITAMIN E.

I could have reacted to any of these crazy chemicals!! I couldn't avoid being out in public at the time (son's martial arts national comp & out of town) but I felt like a leper. My face and neck were peeling for days. Only used it once.

I will never again try products with this kind of ingredients list!!! And especially when I'm out of town & in public!!! :ph34r::lol:

Lesson number 345,979 in this journey.

I haven't been able to tolerate anything with ANY kind of sunscreen in years & years. Now they seem to want to put sunscreen in almost all makeup -- even powder.

That's a crazy ingredient list --- they have Tocopheryl Acetate which is vitamin E & then at the bottom they have Vitamin E! Weird.

Wear a wide brim hat --- it doesn't contain gluten! Your body will thank you for it. :lol:

Tocopheryl Acetate is a source of Vitamin E. There are other forms. I would think that the product contains Tocopheryl Acetate and also another form of the vitamin.

All tocopherols and vitamin E are considered gluten-free by the Canadian Celiac Association when they are in food. If they are safe in food, which is intended to be ingested, why would they be a concern in other products?

I Googled Tocopheryl Acetate & it said it is Vitamin E, made from wheat & furthermore when used in lotions, creams, etc.... topically it can get absorbed into the skin. I have seen many people posting it shouldn't be used or taken not only on this site but other celiac sites. I had no idea the Canadian Celiac Assoc. considered them gluten free.

Two of us are brand spanking new here. we're just trying to find out what's what & negotiate the waters. It's getting hard to tread water. B)

Hi, squirmingitch,

There is a lot of old information still swirling around from the days before we had ELISA testing for gluten content.

It is now known that some things can be derived from wheat without any gliadin being detectable in the finished product. When these are used as ingredients in a food, there is not an issue for most folks with celiac disease.

If food ingredients are wheat derived, then the word "wheat" must appear on the label in Canada and in the United States.

I use a product that I would higly recommend. Clinique SuperDefense SPF moisturizer which makes my skin feel great without being greasy. Then I apply Lancome Aqua Fusion Teinte which is a moisturizing tint. I have had no issues with it. Other brands I use and stick to are Nivea and Almay.

If you are super sensitive to cosmetics with lots of ingredients without being able to tell for sure what all of the bad ones are for your skin, you can "make do" with the following while checking it out. I agree the total amount of different ingredients in many different items is enough to drive one crazy, because the more that's in there, the more likely something is going to set off a reaction. Try to avoid shampoos with oats, too. They stick those oats in everything. It's ridiculous.

Soap: plain Ivory bar soap. And can be used on the hair in a pinch, it won't rinse out as well, but we're talking fear of rash reactions.

Shampoo. Those Dr Bronner's castile soaps also don't have too many ingredients.

Basic hair rinse: pure, plain apple cider vinegar diluted with 7 parts water. Either mix this up in a big plastic cup and pour it on as a final rinse, or put some in a spray bottle with water and spritz on after shampooing. Fixes pH of hair back to normal afte using soap, which is a base, detangles, leaves shine, and CHEAP.

Basic hair conditioner: coconut oil. Put a tiny pea sized dab of coconut oil in your palm to warm it up, rub it on your hands, and then work it into your hair after the vinegar rinse. Coconut oil can also be used on arms/legs as a moisturizer after a shower. Dip some out of the jar with a spoon, then put it in your hand.

Shea butter: can also be used for the same thing, in the same way. While a jar of pure shea butter costs $, it lasts a very long time, because you are just scraping out a tiny amount out of the jar with the back of your fingernail each time.

Emergency deodorant: Sprinkle some baking soda onto a slightly damp skin, spread w/ fingertips, let dry. Don't shave right before you do this, or it will sting a little. But it works surprising well. It is said that milk of magnesia can be used for the same purpose, but the gluten free status may not be guaranteed.

I had the mother of all skin reactions to a multi- ingredient, "natural" herbal deodorant this summer, after several wearings. I hadn't seen anything like this since poison oak, and I can't tell from the label what the culprit is. Apparently the residue also got stuck on my clothing, because once in a while I'll wear a shirt that hasn't been washed in a while ( because I keep a long sleeved shirt in my truck, and the car, for example, to prevent sunburn when hiking/kayaking, to wear over a tank top ) and will feel the itch starting up again. It's definitely a topical reaction, because I can stop it by washing it off. Just when I think I've hunted down and washed everything I had on that week, I find another one, because we wear sweatshirts year round here where the evenings get cold. ggggrrrrrrrrrrr. I was successfully using another brand which was bought out by a different company, and now changes their formulations constantly (I mean really, what is wrong with them?) and it doesn't work well. May the person who decided consistency does not matter be cursed with many hot flashes in a hot climate. B)

makeup: try googling "gluten free (name of thing you want to use, such as face powder)" and see what comes up. I have used Ecco Bella lipstick and this other one called Hemp Naturals. For eyeliner I've used mineral eyeliners which you moisten a little brush and then dip it into a powder, there's Larimar and Bare Minerals.

Takala, Thank you!!!!! But I have to LOL at one of the suggestions --- castile soap --- who in the world but me would be allergic to castile soap? Since I was 7 or 8. It didn't make me break out but I would sneeze my fool head off. I haven't used it since.

I do use Monkey Boy Products Jumping Jojoba sudsy scrub which is intended to be a face wash but I use it for my whole body. Since I began using it about 4 years ago my skin has done soooo much better --- that is with the exception of this DH which jumped on me like white on rice this year. It has very few ingredients in it & makes your skin feel like a babies & you can get several scents in it or she will make it without scent. It only takes a quarter size amt. & I put it on an exfoliating cloth & end up clean & smelling wonderful & have no need for perfume which can irritate.

She also makes goat's milk lotion from her own goats & can scent it many ways or not at all.

I have made her aware of the whole celiac/gluten issue & she is on board with making sure her products don't contain wheat or wheat derived E & so on & so forth. She had been using hydrolyzed wheat protein in her conditioner but is going to take that ingredient out. So I will have a safe hair conditioner to use.

I think Teresa is still working on a shampoo formula & that's why I had not been using shampoo from her.

So I'm good in all those departments but she doesn't make make up. DRAT! And that's why I was asking about make up. Thanks for the tip on the eyeliner & lip stick. I will google the other things like face powder.

Yes, this whole journey is so daunting, frustrating & at times downright depressing. I am (I think -- can one EVER be sure?) eating gluten free now for a solid week (maybe more if there was nothing accidental)& have embarked on iodine free 2 days ago to try & get this DH to settle down some. It's hard to find things to eat.

Yes, stay away from things with the oat stuff. I had a dermatologist tell me to soak in Aveeno....WHAT A DISASTER!

I have also discovered that things with tea tree oil (or extract) bugs my skin if I have active DH. Actually most "natural" products with flower and herb extracts aggravate my DH. The neomycin in Neosporin aggravates. Pramoxine in skin lotions designed to relieve itching causes problems.

I have problems with sunscreens also, so use CeraVe lotion on my face and then Bare Minerals over it. I have to stay out of the sun anyway because it aggravates any existing DH.

Hair products are notorious. Stay away from the ones that claim to cause shine...they often have "hydrolized wheat protein" in them. I also got contaminated from my dog's shampoo. I gave her a bath without reading the label and the DH on my arms went crazy! It had oat ingredients.

I have used all the items mentioned in a previous post and they work very well. I use safflower oil after showering on my skin while still wet then pat dry.

I always check everything again when I run out of something and buy a new supply. These companies are constantly changing the ingredients to try to appear "new and improved" so you can get burned.

If you search these forums, someone posted a great list of no-no ingredients in cosmetics.

Squirmingitch, I have had the best experience with Afterglow makeup. They have a website and do sell some things in some stores, but I always order online because they are not in stores close-by to me. They are a little pricey compared to most makeups but they last longer, so it really evens out in the end. The lady who created the make up line did so for her mother who has a gluten allergy along with a bunch of other allergies. It is the only stuff that covers the terrible scars from the DH that I still am getting here and there. The DH is nothing compared to what it was a couple of years ago, I have been gluten-free for almost 2 years now. I feel that I am still learning things daily, there is so much to learn!!!! The staples of my makeup collection from Afterglow cosmetics is Organic Aloe Concealer and the Mineral Makeup. I also just discovered a new moisturizer from Good For You Girls, a brand I just came across on a vitamin website. I really like it. And also Desert Essence products are AMAZING! =)

    • What Are Your Brands & Flavors Of Gluten Free Ice Cream ?
      I don't worry about the same facility, but I check if it is on the same lines. I think it is usually a good idea to find out if things are made on shared lines. And if they are made on the same line as gluten-containing products how good is the cleaning in between? Chocolate is a good example of this. For example, I contacted a company whose chocolate I used to eat before being diagnosed and they outright told me they are not good about cleaning on shared lines and it is not safe for allergies or celiac. I have had this response from other companies as well (especially when it comes to chocolate sadly). I think this is why Godiva is not safe. Its just a good idea to check.
    • TRUSTING OTHERS about GLUTEN! how do you know if someone has used gluten free flour?
      Wow you all have more balls than I do. I've been gluten free since 2007 and I'm still afraid of offending people. It gives me lots of troubles, really. I'm more like rockstarkate I guess...the "people pleasing" aspect.  I love how you all just have the flat out rule I Will Not Eat It Unless I or a Celiac Made it. (Or a trusted family member).  I still simper and grovel and cringe and apologetically turn things away.  People still put dishes in my face and say "This should be gluten free..."  and I have to awkwardly not eat it and then seem rude.  I've done the whole...checking the bottles thing too.  I do try to dart out of things more though now. I volunteered in other countries in recent years and I felt as vulnerable as all heck, having to rely on them to make food, as well as definitely feeling like I offended people who didn't get it at all. I was feeling brave when I signed up for those but after the second time I was like okay, the fear/anxiety/stress about the food is too much. I managed to dodge out of getting sick, and for the most part people humored me...but it was pretty difficult because I don't like offending people, especially other cultures, with them trying to be nice and make food for me...pretty sure I did offend people as well as annoy many others.  Anyway...no OP, you are not alone. For sure I have trust issues eating other people's food. They say they know but I do truly doubt they are as strict as I would be.   A few times I will still brave eating something...like some little mozzarella balls with vinegar...though, I did still look at the labels.  Someone had to give me a persuasive speech and show me all ingredients (just salt and pepper) after making me chicken wings once. I do tell people, basically, NOT to make me stuff. But they still do.  Another time a friend had worked really hard and was having a terrible time and offered me a burger patty when I arrived, assuring me it was gluten free. I knew I hadn't been there to watch whether she used the "bun spatula" on it or not...but I just didn't feel like giving her a fight about it since she was having a rough time and hosts like to feel they are feeding guests, blah blah. So I ate it. And got glutened. And wailed and gnashed my teeth haha. Lesson learned.  I need to stick to my guns more. I just always feel like I'm being too "difficult" as it is. But...sigh.  It is refreshing for me to read these empowered no BS responses though. You all remind me of where I'm coming from, and not that I'm just being some kind of high maintenance, rude, crazy person. You'd think after, what, nine years now, I wouldn't still be bothered by it...
    • Mashed potato soup during healing
      I was on pretty much a liquid diet for 8 months waiting for my nausea to go away completely. I mostly had mashed potato soup, 1/2 fat ice cream (mostly whey, not milk), chocolate drink (no added milk) and gummy vitamins. The soup tasted yummy and I'm still alive so I figured I'd share it for people not feeling well in the beginning. I've been noticing people with alot of trouble keeping food down in recent posts. I couldn't have milk or eggs, but the cheese in the recipe didn't bother me at all. Notice the lack of spices. Makes it easy on the stomach.   Mashed potato soup: Boiled yukon gold potatoes (5lb bag) 1 package cauliflower, steamed 4-6 slices of Land O'Lakes white American cheese 4 tablespoons butter salt 16 cups homemade chicken broth, salted   Chop steamed cauliflower into teensy bits (pureed is better). Put in mixer with butter, cheese and a potato or two. Blend while slowly adding potatoes. Keep whipping for a few minutes to insure the cauliflower and potatoes are not lumpy at all. Salt to taste.   Combine 1/2 cup mashed potatoes to 1 cup salted chicken broth. Mix with spoon until mashed potatoes have completely dissolved. Enjoy. Individual servings can be frozen.   Homemade chicken broth: makes 8 - 10 cups of broth   1 organic chicken (regular chickens are too big) 1 stalk celery 1 carrot 1 large bay leaf 1/2 package fresh thyme from the  herb section of the vegetables area   Put all ingredients in pressure cooker along with 1.5 liters water. Bring to pressure. Cook for 35 minutes. Separate broth from solids. Separate broth from fat. Add ridiculous quantities of salt until it tastes like soup. Sorry I use a salt grinder so I don't have precise salt quantities.    
    • I have kidney stones...spent last night at the ER
      Hey ArtG, I saw the urologist today...unfortunately for me they can still see my stones on an xray.  Sigh.  The largest is 3x6 in my right kidney.  He does not believe I can pass this one on my own.   All of my bloodwork came back fine.  Nothing alarming in the urinalysis either. His recommendations...keep drinking tons of water.  I had 4.2 liters of urine output when I tested.  Add in a fish oil supplement.  Decrease sodium intake.  Limit meat to 10 ounces per day.  Increase dietary calcium.   Work at lowering oxalate consumption...my urinary oxalate was 45.  They want it between 20 and 40.  But he gets people that are over 100 so mine is not all that high. 3 options...1. watch and wait.  Recheck in a few months to see if there is stone growth.  2. Shock wave lithotripsy.  3. Let it come out when it decides to and see what happens. I just don't know.  I hate the idea of being put under as they would do for the shock wave thing.  I've had too many surgeries already.  It scares me to be honest.  I also don't want to deal with another episode.   I don't know what I'll do.  We've got a vacation planned at the end of the month and I just want to go and enjoy that.  Not worry about kidney stones. I'm sorry to hear about your upcoming surgery...it really is always something!
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      I know what food products are. Probiotics was a recent example I saw on the news about things labeled gluten free that were not gluten free. So, supplement labels in addition to food labels.

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
