Glutened By Eos Lip Balm?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi guys! I've felt slightly glutened for the past few weeks, and the one new thing I've been consistently using is EOS lip balm. I know it says it's gluten-free, so it seems unlikely. Has anyone else had problems?

 

I got the Strawberry Sorbet flavor in the sphere, if that makes a difference.

I believe all there products are gluten free.  Many on here use these balms.  I would look else where for the problem.

Yes, all of their products are gluten free. I've used every flavor of lip balm they offer without issue.

 

Are they? After viewing their website, they only list their hand cream and lip balm as gluten free… it concerns me that they bother to list that on the hand cream and lip balm but not their body lotion or shave cream… I have heard that their products are all gluten free… but, again, the website freaks me out a bit hah.

Call them on it. Someone said their shaving cream was gluten free, I didn't believe it because it has oats, which is why I stopped using it. So I emailed them. Called them, twice. They said there are the lip balms and hand lotions, which they say are gluten free. And then there are the body lotion and shaving cream which don't say it. I don't know why they don't just list the oats as gluten-free oats or whats up with that. Or if they just don't say it because they don't want a bazillion people calling in like I did questioning if it's really truly true. But I was told on three separate occasions that all products are gluten free. Naturally, I'm just repeating what I was told which was probably a year ago. As far as I can tell the ingredients look like what I recall. (But who remembers a whole list?) Seriously though, who eats body lotion and shaving cream? Maybe they only list the ones they do because they're the only ones that make sense, seeing how one gets applied to our mouth and one goes on our hands which is the only part of our body that comes in regular contact with our mouth.

Thanks for the reply/feedback :) I may attempt to contact them again, I didn't have much luck last time. 

 

I generally only use their lip balm… I found other products that are gluten free for hand lotion/body lotion. Also, it's a good point about not eating shaving cream… but in terms of body lotion I generally apply it with my hands, and I don't usually wash my hands after. Might just be me though.

I use whatever lotion makes me happy at any given time. Usually I buy stuff on sale or that I have coupons for. I have found that if you call a company about the gluten free status of their products that they often offer to mail you coupons. I do use a lot of J&J baby products because they're reasonably priced, frequently on sale and coupons are abundant. By preference, I would use Eucerin. I have used ones though that I haven't checked on as body lotions (I mostly use them for my feet) because I do wash my hands after putting lotion on my feet.

 

I do have the incredibly terrible and probably unhealthy habit of putting my razor in my mouth while I apply shaving lotion. I know how bad this is, and I tell myself I'll stop... and next thing I know my razor is in my mouth again. <_< I have a terrible problem with following simple instructions I guess.

I also do that... I try to be really careful but... it happens each and every time.
