Good Afternoon Bridget - Thank you for your inquiry. Gluten is a protein contained in wheat, barley, and rye. Some of our products may contain wheat, barley, or rye (or any derivatives from them) in their formulations. Crabtree & Evelyn's Product Development has stated that they can not guarantee that any of our products are completely gluten free. The best advice we can offer is to check any desired products with your physician. Please do not hesitate to contact our Customer Service department at the telephone number listed below if there is anything else that we can help you with. Crabtree & Evelyn Customer Service 1-800-272-2873

8th Continent Soy

Dear Ms. Fritzsch:

Thank you for contacting 8th Continent regarding gluten in our products.

It is our goal to help our consumers determine whether or not they can include our products in their diet. To accurately accomplish this, we believe it is best to refer to the specific ingredients listed on each product package.

However, we do understand that ingredients can be confusing, so we want to assure you if the ingredient label does not list wheat, barley, rye, oats or gluten containing ingredients sourced from these grains, then the product would be gluten-free. Sources of gluten are listed on the label even if the source of gluten is part of another ingredient (such as flavoring or spice). Because ingredients may vary from one package to another due to product reformulation, you should use the product’s ingredient label to provide you with current and accurate information.

We hope this information is helpful.

Sincerely,

Jessica Vescio

General Mills

Hi, I recently read a warning about colognes, perfumes, after shave; it was stated that the alcohol could contain gluten and I don't understand that. I wonder if anyone has any ideas about this? I don't like fragrances, even my husband's aftershave but I have significant allergies as well. Thanks for any input.

Just as an FYI... most cosmetics are produced by 1 of 2 major brands and even then they don't produce them. They are actually produced by again 1 of 2 companies you have never heard of. The major label brands that you buy from simply have these companies tweak the product a bit to their liking and then put their name on it.

I mention this because I know that everyone gets very concerned with which cosmetics are gluten-free. To be honest knowing what I do, once I know one brand is gluten-free I tend to assume all brands owned by that parent company are ok.

For instance:

Estee Lauder produces: MAC, Bobbi Brown, Stila, Clinique, Chanel and tons more.

Lancome produces: L'Oreal, Revlon, Maybelline, Redken, and more.

Assuming that all products of any Brand are gluten-free is dangerous to your health. Unless a company states and can demonstrate that their entire line is gluten-free, you would be wise to check each product on an individual basis.

FYI: CHANEL is not owned by Estee Lauder. It is a private company owned by the same family that has owned it since Coco Chanel was still alive.

The Crabtree company's response bothers me too. Why would my doctor know more about their product than they do? My doctor doesn't manufacture the product: THEY DO! That infuriates me. It doesn't come across to me as CYA, but more "I'm so stupid I don't know what I put in my product." It screams "stupid" and "don't care."

If you get that kind of answer simply move on and use another product. I am not one of the people who feel that the world needs to cater to me just because I have a digestive abnormality. There are millions more products. My response would be: Thank you for your information and then just use something else.

I apologize for my ignorance, but why does this matter? I am recently diagnosed but 3 other members of my family were diagnosed years ago. No one pays attention to what is contained in makeup, shampoo, etc - my understanding as well from multiple books I have read is that the danger to your small intestine is strictly from ingesting gluten. Now something like toothpaste, I can understand since that is in your mouth, but what danger does a gluten-containing shampoo or other makeup possibly pose?

Shampoo can get on your face and into your mouth as you rinse. You may touch your face, thereby contacting the makeup, and then (for whatever reason) touch your lips without washing. Hand lotion can get into your mouth the same way. For those who are highly sensitive, this is a valid issue.

I found out today that Caswell Massey has a Natural line that includes hand soap, hand lotion and bar soap that is gluten free. It has it printed on the actual product. In case someone likes that company.

Yes, also if you have long hair, your hair can blow into your face/mouth area. Happens to me all of the time, so gluten free shampoo and conditioner is very important to me. I saw a big improvement when I went completely gluten free on the cosmetics/shampoos/soaps/etc.

These  posts are from 2005 to 2010

a Celiac must consume gluten to have a Celiac reaction.  Technically, you could roll in wheat flour and be fine - as long as you don't swallow any.

    Celiac.com 06/22/2018 - The rise of food allergies means that many people are avoiding gluten in recent times. In fact, the number of Americans who have stopped eating gluten has tripled in eight years between 2009 and 2017.
    Whatever your rationale for avoiding gluten, whether its celiac disease, a sensitivity to the protein, or any other reason, it can be really hard to find suitable places to eat out. When you’re on holiday in a new and unknown environment, this can be near impossible. As awareness of celiac disease grows around the world, however, more and more cities are opening their doors to gluten-free lifestyles, none more so than the 10 locations on the list below.
    Perhaps unsurprisingly, the U.S is a hotbed of gluten-free options, with four cities making the top 10, as well as the Hawaiian island of Maui. Chicago, in particular, is a real haven of gluten-free fare, with 240 coeliac-safe eateries throughout this huge city. The super hip city of Portland also ranks highly on this list, with the capital of counterculture rich in gluten-free cuisine, with San Francisco and Denver also included. Outside of the states, several prominent European capitals also rank very highly on the list, including Prague, the picturesque and historic capital of the Czech Republic, which boasts the best-reviewed restaurants on this list.
    The Irish capital of Dublin, meanwhile, has the most gluten-free establishments, with a huge 330 to choose from, while Amsterdam and Barcelona also feature prominently thanks to their variety of top-notch gluten-free fodder.
    Finally, a special mention must go to Auckland, the sole representative of Australasia in this list, with the largest city in New Zealand rounding out the top 10 thanks to its 180 coeliacsafe eateries.
    The full top ten gluten-free cities are shown in the graphic below:

    Celiac.com 06/21/2018 - Would you buy a house advertised as ‘gluten-free’? Yes, there really is such a house for sale. 
    It seems a Phoenix realtor Mike D’Elena is hoping that his trendy claim will catch the eye of a buyer hungry to avoid gluten, or, at least one with a sense of humor. D’Elena said he crafted the ads as a way to “be funny and to draw attention.” The idea, D’Elena said, is to “make it memorable.” 
    Though D’Elena’s marketing seeks to capitalizes on the gluten-free trend, he knows Celiac disease is a serious health issue for some people. “[W]e’re not here to offend anybody….this is just something we're just trying to do to draw attention and do what's best for our clients," he said. 
    Still, the signs seem to be working. D'elena had fielded six offers within a few days of listing the west Phoenix home.
    "Buying can sometimes be the most stressful thing you do in your entire life so why not have some fun with it," he said. 
    What do you think? Clever? Funny?

    Celiac.com 06/20/2018 - Currently, the only way to manage celiac disease is to eliminate gluten from the diet. That could be set to change as clinical trials begin in Australia for a new vaccine that aims to switch off the immune response to gluten. 
    The trials are set to begin at Australia’s University of the Sunshine Coast Clinical Trials Centre. The vaccine is designed to allow people with celiac disease to consume gluten with no adverse effects. A successful vaccine could be the beginning of the end for the gluten-free diet as the only currently viable treatment for celiac disease. That could be a massive breakthrough for people with celiac disease.
    USC’s Clinical Trials Centre Director Lucas Litewka said trial participants would receive an injection of the vaccine twice a week for seven weeks. The trials will be conducted alongside gastroenterologist Dr. James Daveson, who called the vaccine “a very exciting potential new therapy that has been undergoing clinical trials for several years now.”
    Dr. Daveson said the investigational vaccine might potentially restore gluten tolerance to people with celiac disease.The trial is open to adults between the ages of 18 and 70 who have clinically diagnosed celiac disease, and have followed a strict gluten-free diet for at least 12 months. Anyone interested in participating can go to www.joinourtrials.com.

    Celiac.com 06/19/2018 - Could baking soda help reduce the inflammation and damage caused by autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, and celiac disease? Scientists at the Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University say that a daily dose of baking soda may in fact help reduce inflammation and damage caused by autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, and celiac disease.
    Those scientists recently gathered some of the first evidence to show that cheap, over-the-counter antacids can prompt the spleen to promote an anti-inflammatory environment that could be helpful in combating inflammatory disease.
    A type of cell called mesothelial cells line our body cavities, like the digestive tract. They have little fingers, called microvilli, that sense the environment, and warn the organs they cover that there is an invader and an immune response is needed.
    The team’s data shows that when rats or healthy people drink a solution of baking soda, the stomach makes more acid, which causes mesothelial cells on the outside of the spleen to tell the spleen to go easy on the immune response.  "It's most likely a hamburger not a bacterial infection," is basically the message, says Dr. Paul O'Connor, renal physiologist in the MCG Department of Physiology at Augusta University and the study's corresponding author.
    That message, which is transmitted with help from a chemical messenger called acetylcholine, seems to encourage the gut to shift against inflammation, say the scientists.
    In patients who drank water with baking soda for two weeks, immune cells called macrophages, shifted from primarily those that promote inflammation, called M1, to those that reduce it, called M2. "The shift from inflammatory to an anti-inflammatory profile is happening everywhere," O'Connor says. "We saw it in the kidneys, we saw it in the spleen, now we see it in the peripheral blood."
    O'Connor hopes drinking baking soda can one day produce similar results for people with autoimmune disease. "You are not really turning anything off or on, you are just pushing it toward one side by giving an anti-inflammatory stimulus," he says, in this case, away from harmful inflammation. "It's potentially a really safe way to treat inflammatory disease."
    The research was funded by the National Institutes of Health.
