I'm having a hard time finding lip products that are gluten free, and I have to rely on postal service to get them as they are not readily available in the UK shops. I get looked at like I've grown another head when I dare to ask sales assistants about gluten in lipstick. I have gluten free toothpaste as that is more obvious. I think I need to become more strict with face creams and hand creams etc., as some of my symptoms have returned and I know I'm being careful with food.
Of course, there'll always be someone who thinks I'm being too fussy, but it's me that's having to 'live it' on a day to day basis. I just want to be well.
Sales assistants in US at most stores do not know which lipsticks are gluten free. It really requires an email to the company and you have to specify a color. So for some of my old lipstick that I loved I sent an email to the company. For any new lipsticks I stick with lines that are gluten free. Even one makeup line that is completely gluten free called NARS, the sales associate at the counter in a very high end department store didn't know there products were all gluten free.
In answering another post you wrote that you didn't realize you could get sick from gluten on your skin. Please let me be clear that the experts in the US agree you can only get sick through ingesting gluten. Please keep in mind if you use a hand cream with gluten as an ingredient then you will most likely ingest some of this unless you never touch your food. It is not that the gluten is touching the skin.
