I researched the MK Gluten issue, and the letter I got from them suggested I avoid MOST of their products because they couldn't be sure about the source of the ingredient. So, I narrowed it down to 5 products that I wouldn't use based on gluten. But, for you to have all of the information, here is the list they sent me. (I put the ingredient that they felt might have gluten in parenthesis).

Mary Kay


EnteroLab test positive for gluten intolerence and 2 gluten intolerence and celiac genes

DQ2 and DQ3 sub type DQ7 in December 2005

Gluten-free since Enterolab test, December 2, 2005.

Lame Advertisement Test positive for gluten intolerence in Sept 2005.

THEN found out that my fathers mother had nontropical sprue, she passed away at 40 from (stomach) cancer, had holes in her intestines when they caught it. I had no idea....

It's disturbing that Mary Kay would think things that some of those items contain gluten ... like maltodextrin, vegetable oil, citric acid, etc. Seems easier to just use another brand!

Yeah, I do now. Not because of gluten, but because I have become disgusted with MLM and Direct Selling companies like MK and A.rbonne. See how the above poster has listed the A.rbonne list in THREE MK topics instead of starting an Lame Advertisement thread? It is ruthless. Whatever. I am buying from the stores these days! :)

(NOTE:A.rbonne post was removed, I am not crazy! LOL)

Yes, she's posting EVERYWHERE! Last I looked, I didn't see any moderators on the board, but two are here now, so maybe they'll take care of it.

Do you know if the SPF 30 sunscreen is gluten-free? And the timewise moisterizer and time wise 3 n 1 cleanser is also gluten-free? My MK rep doesn't seem to know and I can't seem to get through to the company on the phone.

thanks.
