I wanted to share that EOS products are gluten free, even those containing oats. I knew that their lip balm was gluten free because the packaging states that but didn't think their lotion, shave lotion, etc were because they contain oats. I had contacted their CS with feedback about packaging on a special set that included both lip balm and lotion whereby the "gluten free" statement was placed in such a way that it appeared that both products were gluten-free even though the lotion contains oats and I indicated that was confusing. Their CS replied:

Thanks for writing us. The oat ingredient in our products is certified gluten-free, so therefore our lotion is in fact gluten free. Please let me know if you have any further questions.

Regards,

Sherry J.

Their shaving lotion was by far my favorite shaving product I ever purchased. When I picked up the bottle and read the word oats on the back of the label right after my diagnosis, I actually cried when I threw my bottle of it away. I never thought twice about it. I never considered the idea that a company would go to the trouble of using gluten free oats in a shaving lotion, or lotion.

If there were not a sleeping toddler a few feet from me I would squeal like a little girl. Ice storm or no, I am go straight to Wal-Mart the minute my husband gets up. I could kiss you right now! :wub:

So, because I have so much spare time while there are sleeping boys I called them to ask why they don't point out on the website that the products are gluten free. And to tell them they should. They said that I should send an email to info@evolutionofsmooth.com to let them know that they should make this information more readily available. (After confirming that all products are in fact gluten free, every last one.) So, I say we jump on a bandwagon and let them know that we need to know when companies use gluten free oats. Even if we aren't licking shaving cream off ourselves. :lol:

So glad I could make your day and bring that lovely shave lotion back into your life. The limited edition product I bought had a sample of it in there so I'm excited to try it now. Ah, the little things that bring us such joy!

Oh, and I'm so glad that you got the same response cause I'd hate to say EOS is safe and then have someone else get conflicting info. And their CS is AMAZING. I emailed that info@ account and got a response in like 2hrs. Most companies you email CS and don't hear back for days. I thanked them for their gluten-free labeling and their CS. Wish more companies were like them.

I recently bought their lip balm. To tell the truth, I was attracted to the shape of the container. Then I saw it was labeled gluten free which made me even happier because I didn't have to read all the ingredients! I didn't know they had other products. Definitely will look into them! Thanks for the information.

I went to the website and it doesn't say the oats are gluten-free. I think I will write them, too. If they get several inquiries in a row, they might pay attention. Would lobve them to label it gluten-free on the bottle too.

Just tried to email and the link on thier site didn't work. :angry:

Karen, I just copied the email address into my personal email to contact them. I don't do email links on sites. Most of the time there is some lame popup involving outlook or some other complete failure of a program they like. Meh, I like my email, so copy/paste is just my standard now. Makes my life easier to just assume it won't work.

I bought a couple of the egg shaped lip balms a few weeks ago. I really like this product. Easy to find and cheap too.

I love the lip balm. But no stores anywhere near me have the sweet mint one. It kills me. I've been using the lip balm a long time. I'm shaving my legs with the shaving cream again, no ill effects. It feels so good, and it really cuts down on the amount of lotion I need after. I've never used anything else quite as amazing.

Adalaide, I found the sweet mint one at Walmart by the cash register. Maybe look there. :)

I have 2 Walmarts within 10 minutes of my house and I have checked every register at both. There are also 2 more Walmarts within 20 minutes and a 5th about half an hour away that my husband is a contractor at. No dice. Naturally it is the flavor they are always out of on their website. I'm surrounded by Walmarts that sell nothing I want! WAAAAAA!!!!!

I'm going to check their website, but does anyone know if they are soy and nut free? Thanks! My daughter uses these and I think I saw the mint one at an Ultra store if you have one of those close.

Not sure if coconut counts as a nut but they do have coconut oil. I don't think that they have soy. If you find out, could you please post. :)

No. It is a drupe. Having a lot of time on my hands has lead to a vast array of largely useless knowledge.

I think I got mine at Target. Love the little balls. When they fall to the bottom of my purse, I can find them easier. :)

Scarfed up the last two bottles of body lotion at my Walmart. The kind I have is unscented and leaves my skin sooooo soft. I can't find the shave lotion anywhere locally. Boo.

Not EOS, but Carmex came out with a line of colored lip moisturizer. I really love them too. It's nice to have some color.

    • Anxiety is quite a common symptom with undiagnosed celiacs. It should improve if not disappear when you go gluten free. Be sure to CONTINUE eating gluten until the endoscopy!   Welcome to the club!
    • Although serological tests are useful for identifying celiac disease, it is well known that a small minority of celiacs are seronegative, and show no blood markers for celiac disease. A team of researchers wanted to define the prevalence and features of seronegative compared to seropositive celiac disease, and to establish whether celiac disease is a common cause of seronegative villous atrophy. View the full article
    • This was absolutely me before diagnosis.  The worst of all of my Celiac symptoms occurred in the morning.  The anxiety was terrible in the mornings, I had horrible nausea, no appetite, felt light headed, dizzy and shaky, diarrhea, stomach cramps... the works.  Honestly, I don't know if it was the symptoms causing the anxiety, the anxiety making my symptoms worse, or a combination.  I almost dropped out of school because I felt so terrible every morning I didn't want to leave the house to go to class.  The first few doctors I saw insisted all of my symptoms were psychological and tried to give me anti-depressants/anti-anxiety meds, but I knew there was something else wrong with me.  I had always been a bit "high-strung," but for the year I was really sick before diagnosis, the anxiety got out of control. I was diagnosed with celiac disease 6 months ago and have been gluten free ever since.  It took time, but everything is gradually improving.  The morning anxiety is much improved and some mornings, is completely gone.  I realized a month or two ago that I no longer spend the first hour after waking up gagging and dry-heaving, something I had done for so many years that I just thought it was normal for me.  I can brush my teeth and my tongue without feeling like I'm going to puke.  I eat breakfast now, which I have never done, because I was always too anxious and nauseous in the mornings to be hungry.  I am not "all better."  I still have bad days and even bad weeks.  If I get glutened the anxiety comes back full force.  If I'm super-stressed out or letting my health slide (not eating well, not sleeping enough) the AM anxiety seems to return.  But, it has been slowly improving over the last 6 months and has become so much more manageable.   Your anxiety could be a separate disorder from the celiac disease, but for me, it seems it was absolutely related and continues to get better.  Don't get discouraged if you don't see an immediate improvement or experience relapses after improving.  Often, I feel like it's a two-step-forward, one-step-back kind of thing, but it is getting better.
    • I have suffered with GERD for 20 years and accidently found out it was a gluten intolerance. I had gone on Atkins years ago and noticed that I had no GERD symptoms while on the diet. I didn't make the connection at that time. Then I went on the Mayo Diet back in the winter and once again, the constant was having no bread primarily. I had also noticed that I would have major attacks anytime I ate Italian food. I blamed it on the onions, the tomatoes, herbs...but I could tolerate all those foods separately. Then, like a lightning bolt...it hit me...the culprit was the "innocent" pasta. BINGO!!  I went gluten-free in March 2016 and I have had no GERD now in 5 months. I feel as if it is a gift to me.   
    • Hey everyone!! Dealt with morning anxiety, complete lack of appetite in the AM/diarrhea if I tried to eat, fatigue, etc. for about two months. Saw doctor and they first prescribed me antidepressants while they ran bloodwork. Got bloodwork yesterday, positive result for celiac, going to get the endoscopy/biopsy soon. Anyone else have morning anxiety like CRAZY before cutting out gluten? Afraid to leave the house because of feeling faint, dizzy, etc., like I'm going to pass out. I haven't actually passed out, but the feelings are all there. It's hard to overcome the anxiety some time!   Hoping someone else has had similar symptoms and that I can look forward to this being over soon!! Thanks everyone xoxo
