Sorry for asking so many questions but I honestly don't know where else to find answers! Bc I'm still not 100% fine I'm starting to think about possible CC with my make up. I currently use Exuviance make up concealer (I can't find a number of how to reach them) I also use L'oreal compact powder (I read somewhere that L'oreal is safe to use). Eyeliner is victorias secret (I think they discontinued it) And blush is from Estee Lauder. Can anyone suggest gluten free make up brands? For moisterizer I'm recently using coconut oil from Spectrum organic (I emailed them and they said they can't guarantee no CC... has anyone used the oil with no issues?) Thanks!

Pure coconut oil is gluten free.  Unless a company certifies a product gluten free you will always get the same answer.  They will give no guarantees.  This is standard practice and should not discourage you from using a product.  As far as makeup is concerned, I only worry about what touches my lips.  Lip balm, lipstick and moisturizer for me.  For instance, Mascara will never touch your lips  so don't worry about it.

Thanks. I actually just Googled Spectrum coconut oil since I couldn't find the email they sent me...and it's processed in the same lines they use for wheat germ oil. I think I'm going to stop using it to see if it makes a difference. Honestly I always get makeup powder on my lips when I do my make up. ..I have no idea why... bc I have small lips... lol but I always wipe with makeup remover towelettes right after finishing my make up. That's why I was wondering about my concealer and foundation. Hopefully it's just the coconut oil. I would like to see if anyone suggests gluten free make up brands.

I use one of those powder/mineral foundations.  No gluten there.  Physicians Formula has a few products that do not contain gluten and it states it on the label, but always read the label as products change.  I use their concealers.  I use Gabriel lipstick found in Sprouts which is like a cheaper Whole Foods.  It is certified gluten-free.  It is also on Amazon.  Red Apple (Certified and online) I hear is very good.   EOS, the little balls, are great for moisturizing lips.  You can get five or so at Costco or single ones at other big box stores.

Just in case anyone uses this. .. Skindinavia's finishing spray contains tocopherol acetate... so I emailed them to see if it's derived from wheat.....my joint pain was completely gone and now it's back.... I used this spray yesterday and today. The coconut oil I started using about a week and a half ago. Hopefully by eliminating gluten completely I can see if that's the cause of my problems. Just checked the ingredients of my concealer...is also has vitamin E...... from which source? I have no idea. I still can't find the company phone number. 

I use my beauty blender to apply my concealer and then I apply my foundation with a brush... so my concealer gets on my foundation and on my brush...and I noticed today that when I apply my powder.. there was powder in the air and I started coughing. .. this is a new powder I just purchased. ..which I don't even know if it's gluten free... I guess I'll contact L'oreal to ask them. 

 

Do make up brushes need to be replaced?

Is gluten free make up necessary? I just want to figure out if that could be causing my problems... or am I exagerating? I always have to wipe foundation off of my lips bc it always ends up there... could I then be ingesting it?  This is a whole lifestyle change. ..it's all new to me and without diagnosis I'm even more overwhelmed.

Here is some information on why tocopherols/Vitamin E are not something Celiac's need to worry about......

http://ww.glutenfreedietitian.com/vitamin-e-from-wheat-germ-oil/

I have never had a problem with this make-up ingredient and I have been gluten-free for over 10 years and am extremely sensitive too.  Like others have stated, you only need to be careful with anything going on your lips or on your hands, as in hand/body cream.

I use Neutrogena mineral powder, but I have used it for years, long before my diagnosis.  I just like it! 

Clean your makeup brushes.  It should clean out any gluten, but my brushes really don't get near my mouth.   I use sponges to apply my foundation on the now rare occasions that I use it.  Now that I am old and long married, a quick swipe of lipstick to prevent me from looking dead is all I need.  My complexion is very clear, another advantage of being old, I guess!  :blink:

I know the foundation I use has gluten. I am just very careful not to get it on my lips. If I DO get it on them I wipe with a tissue, then put a little soap and water on another tissue and carefully clean my lips. Hardly ever happens though. I have a magnifying mirror and just slow down and be extra careful when I'm around my mouth.

And then for the most important part - I may during the day touch my face, scratch my nose, rub my eye. That's why I ALWAYS wash my hands, every single time, before putting anything in my mouth.

Gabriel offers a full line of CERTIFIED GLUTEN FREE cosmetics, available at Whole Foods, Amazon, & Gabriel's website.

EO offers CERTIFIED GLUTEN FREE shampoo, lotion, hand soap, & shower gel, available at Whole Foods & Vitacost.com.

I cannot comprehend why anyone with Celiac would choose to risk cross-contamination when CERTIFIED GLUTEN FREE options are available.  ANYTHING, I repeat ANYTHING, can be cross-contaminated with gluten.

I don't think it wise to deliberately place gluten ANYWHERE on my body.

They've done studies observing people MINDLESSLY touching their noses, eyes, mouths.  That's how flu & noroviruses are spread.  I haven't seen many people licking doorknobs.

For me it's a matter of cost and availability, not to mention I LIKE the makeup I use. There is only one store in my town that sells makeup. They happen to have a relatively (around $6) inexpensive brand that I really really like. If I wanted gluten-free makeup I would have to do a 120 mile round trip to get it or else borrow someone's credit card (I've never had one) and get it online.

And as I said, if a person ALWAYS washes their hands before they put anything in their mouth, it won't matter if they touched their face OR a gluteny doorknob. They won't get glutened. I'm living proof of that.

Bartfull, I am indeed extremely happy that it works for you!!  You are very lucky.  However, I stand by my statement that it has been studied, and proven, that people (not necessarily you) touch their face and mouth mindlessly.  And it is a fact that many nasty viruses are spread in this manner.  I personally doubt that gluten can be spread as easily as these viruses.  However, that is only my opinion.  I do not know.  I don't believe that anyone actually knows.  I'm pretty sure it's never been studied.  I simply do not believe in taking an unnecessary risk--especially in light of how sick some Celiacs (including me) are.  It might help explain why so many adult Celiacs (60%) do not heal.  This is the most recent information I saw on Chicago's Celiac Center website.

I know people touch their faces mindlessly. I saw the same study. But I also know that while I am eating I do not touch my face mindlessly because I'm paranoid. :lol: That's why I wash my hands every single time I plan on eating anything.

You see, I've only been glutened twice in the past four-plus years. The last time (in June), it was from some ice cream I had been eating safely for years. Someone didn't clean the line well enough after making cookies and cream I presume. As much as I loved that ice cream I will never eat it again. :(

But the first time was very early in my gluten-free life. Someone brought cookies into my shop and I must have touched some crumbs on the table. THAT'S when I promised myself I would never put anything in my mouth unless I washed my hands first. (I also banned outside food from the shop unless it is gluten-free.) I don't eat in restaurants, and my home is completely gluten-free. Believe me, I am CAREFUL.

And to tell the truth, I've always been a hand washer. I used to work in restaurants where I would be touching money and dirty plates and used napkins. Even if my eye or nose itched like crazy I never touched my face until I washed my hands. As a result I very very seldom even catch a cold. I mean I've probably only had a cold five or six times in the past 20 years! And some of those came from thoughtless people who had colds, would walk up to the counter, and when I said, "Hi, how are you?", they responded with a big sigh - right in my face. :angry:

Bartfull, I repeat, you are very lucky!  Evidently, you are one of the extreme minority of persons who doesn't ever mindlessly touch their mouth.  I wish I could make the same claim. ;-)  Also, you are very lucky in that you seem to always know when you are "glutened".  Again, I wish I and all other Celiacs could make the same claim.  

If Celiacs always knew when they were "glutened", we wouldn't need follow-up testing in the form of an annual DGP.

You are the lucky one!

I AM lucky that I get symptoms. It would be terrible to never have any indications I had been glutened. Now THAT could lead to extreme paranoia!

I also wonder if my hyperactive immune system is why I never catch colds. Between the celiac, the psoriasis, and the lupus it seems my immune system is in constant attack mode. Too bad it is my own body it's attacking.

Hey there! Thought I would jump in here as I've spent the last like 6 years going crazy over trying to figure out the makeup products and I know how overwhelming it can be! 

I second red apple lipstick, they're pretty good. Also, afterglow cosmetics is gluten and soy free and there isn't the risk of CC. They are my favorite. They can be pricey but the stuff lasts a long time. I know it sucks buying online but they periodically have free shipping. (like today!) and both of those companies have amazing customer service!! Also, it's very comforting to know that you could literally lick your makeup if you wanted and know you will not get sick  :P  Just for peace of mind  

I also use tarte mascara, which is amazing and I haven't had any issues. 

http://www.theceliacdiva.com/should-we-use-gluten-free-makeup/

^ there is a list of some that are safe. 

as as far as the risk factor goes, some people are comfortable with gluten in their makeup and some are not. Even though I'm one of the people who NEVER ever touches their face, because I'm SUPER paranoid, I still try to stick to gluten free stuff. Wind blows hair into your mouth, when you shower/wash your face some of the makeup can get into your mouth. Etc etc.

I's a personal preference though. Some people are fine and some are not. I got glutened years ago by breathing in the powder of a covergirl blush that contained oat flour.
