Can Makeup cause a Glutening ? I rarely wear foundation now but do if I go to the city. Each time I have been glutened and now I wonder if its the makeup. Does that bizarre ? I have thrown away the box, and the product was from a natural allergy free compnay - but they have discontinued that product. So now I am wondering ... I have emailed them - but thought I would ask here too.


Diagnosed May 2006 - Hashimotos Thyroid after being diagnosed in 1977 and told it didn't matter.

Diagnosed June 2006 with adrenal insufficiency.

Diagnosed June 2006 as Gluten Intolerant after I failed the Challenge Diet. Negative blood test.No biopsy.

Diagnosed June 2006 as B12 low. Needed weekly injections for a year.Still have them every 2 weeks.

Trialled Dairy Free Diet and reacted positively to that challenge in January 07.

News Flash! Coeliac Genetic Testing done April 08 . DQ2 Positive !

Diagnosed July 2010 FODMAP. Limits on Fructose, lactose, polyols, fructans. NO ONION! But I can have hard cheese, butter and cream again!!!

Yes, both foundation and lipstick can cause a glutening.

Bonnie Bell make up is gluten free, and there are several others. Look through the Foods and Products and you should find another thread on make up ... or several of them <_<

Make-up can be accidently ingested. I only get make-up that lists the ingredients. If there is no gluten or nothing I'm allergic to I will buy it. I use some L'Oreal products and Covergirl mascara.

Thanks

I have used it-it is pricey- you can get it on QVC or Sephora websites- not sure about Australia sorry

It was ok - I tried the foundation that IS a powder and truthfully wasn't that happy with it but I know others on this board swear by it so I guess give it a try. I did purchase one of thier lipsticks that I thought were all suppose to be gluten free but I may have been mistaken because my lips become really beat red and itch and become cracked after I use it so I would double check on the other threads with regards to the lipstick but the foundation I used with no reactions!!

I found out this morning that the makeup I have been using occasionally DOES contain wheat. I went on a hunt for a new makeup and have found an Australian company that makes mineral makeup just like Bare Escentials but at half the price. Its a small company and sounds very good. I have ordered a starter kit and can't wait for it to arrive !

I have put some posts on here if you search under Bonnie Bell and Jane Cosmetics. I give a list from Bonnie Bell all of their products that are gluten free. Also Jane & Co all of their stuff is gluten free.

I have contacted most of the big named companies and so far these two not only have many gluten free items but they are the only two have come out in writing stating there is no cross contamination with their gluten free products. Many of the top companies I have contacted so far will not make that claim verbally let alone in writing.

Read my posts and contact the companies for yourself.
