Mac Makeup And Herbal Essence Shampoo, Called Both Companies
0

3 posts in this topic

So I went ahead and called MAC makeup corporate to check my makeup. Because I spent alot of money on the makeup and now with going on Gluten diet for a month and having no pain, i need to eliminate it from my life totally it seems.. My GI is wonderful and doing lots of testing on my after having a horrible GI.

Anyways, I asked about Gluten and corn, since my grandmother and aunt have gluten and corn allergies. i don't have confirmed corn yet, so I'm going to use this until i run out and then go to gluten free makeup.. Anyone have good results with a cheap makeup???

MAC Foundation Studio Fix- No Gluten, but has Corn

Base Powder- No Gluten, but has Corn

Base visage (creamy white, evens out skin for foundation) HAS GLUTEN, they are letting me exchange it for a different product

Blush-(i don't have it in front of me) HAS GLUTEN, they are letting me exchange it for a different product

Most glosses do have gluten but she gave me a list of a few that I could try which would not contain gluten.

The corporate office was amazingly kind about letting me switch out my products since I can't switch them at the department stores without a receipt and its past 30 days. I just know spending lots of money on makeup is not in everyone's budget, especially ours. I'm so glad that I can still use most of these products but I might steer away from the Corn a little just in case I do have a Corn Allergy as well.

HERBAL ESSENCE-- Has released an official statement.. They cannot guarantee the fragrances. But their facility and all Herbal Essence products are gluten free, except for the fragrances that come from another location, they cannot guarantee they were not contaminated..

I've only been on this diet for about a month or so.. Does anyone else have problems with Herbal Essence..?

I cannot use Herbal Essence, not sure why since I did not see any gluten in the ingredients but my head did itch a lot. But I did not actually feel sick which is my usual gluten feeling. I changed my shampoo and itch went away. I do use MAC and Prescriptives make up, I read the labels, took a while but finally found blush, eye shadow and lipstick and eyeliner. I went to Macys where they give individual help. I have been soooo sick for lipstick so I am very careful of my makeup.

Recently diagnosed with Celiac Disease and starting to make some calls to companies. Had a lengthy phone conversation with very helpful rep. at M.A.C. Cosmetics. Such differences in ingredients depending on what "finish" you choose. The rep. followed up our conversation with an email that I thought might be useful to others so am posting it below. This forum has been incredibly beneficial as I begin learning about Celiac. Thanks to all for the posts! :D

Thank you for your interest in M.A.C, a brand of The Estee Lauder Companies.

For the benefit of our gluten-sensitive consumers who may have cross-sensitivities, M.A.C takes the extra precaution of including soy, corn and rice in our research in addition to wheat, oat, barley and rye derivatives.

In addressing your concern about gluten, we would like to explain that a vast number of raw materials from many different suppliers and sources are used in the manufacture of Estee Lauder Companies' products. It is therefore not possible for us to fully guarantee that our products are completely free of ingredients that may elicit an allergic response in highly sensitive individuals who react to gluten. For example, it is possible that small amounts of a wheat sourced ingredient may remain on shared manufacturing equipment even after a thorough cleaning. We therefore recommend that you discuss this with your physician, because consumer safety is of utmost concern to us.

In response to your inquiry, the Zoom Waterfast Mascara contains ingredients derived from Soy and Corn.

In addition, please review the following products that we have previosly discussed:

    • Acne are not itchy or only mildly itchy and they look like red bumps with or without white centers. The bumps are quite separated from each other. What did you start to eat after going gluten-free? More fruits and sugary foods? This can trigger acne.  http://www.ehealthstar.com/conditions/acne-vulgaris Dermatitis herpetiformis can be very itchy and the bumps are more close together and they tend to crust over.  
    • What about Xanthan gum?  It really bothers me, so I avoid most commercially processed gluten-free breads, etc.  Never bothers my hubby though.  
    • I use to get them before I went gluten-free.  I stopped eating oats because it also does give me canker sores and causes my toes to get cracked underneath.  
    • I had quite a few of the medical problems that you have before I figured out that gluten was the problem. I can’t do basic math or writing when I eat gluten also I get depressed, irritable, low energy, etc. The best route to go is to do an elimination diet and monitor how certain foods affect you. I eliminated MSG (Monosodium Glutamate), Nitrite, and oat based on the reactions that I get once I consume them. You must be disciplined on a gluten free diet, there is not such a thing as –It is just one cookie! If you can manage to go 100% gluten-free for three weeks and you see those problems going away, you will have a good idea if that is the cause of your problems. The blood test I did after being gluten-free for two years came back negative so the doctor just make me feel that I was crazy and making things up. I have a stool test done which came back with elevated igA also a gene test indicating I have two genes that code for gluten sensitivity. My lactose intolerance went away too, eating a lot of cheese now. Rash in arms? gone, Brown spots in teeth? Gone, Intestinal noises? Gone, Lack of bladder control? Gone, Constipation? Gone, and a lot others.   
    • Oh you're most welcome!  Another thing --- no steroids, oral or injected for 2 months prior to a dh biopsy. Lay off any topical steroid creams for 2 weeks prior. Really, stand your ground with them. It would also be great if you can get a friend or family member to go with you in case they take the biopsy from somewhere that you can't see such as the back of your neck. Your friend/family member can watch to make sure they don't take it directly ON a lesion. Do you have a primary care doc? You can also go to that doc & ask for a full celiac panel PLUS an eTG or TG3. 60% of people with dh test negative on the celiac blood panel but maybe you're one of the 40% who will test positive. It's worth a shot.
