To Throw Out The Make Or Not To Throw Out The Makeup? Help!

Recommended Posts

Hi,

so im still fairly new tot he whole thing but im making advances on the food sides, however i am still getting poisoned occassionally and i have no idea where from!

i have read on some sites that gluten can not be absorbed through the skin, which would amke sense - but i know that my friend who cant tollerate nickle has been told to not wear make up with nickle in - and i have seen several posts on here about shampoos that are gluten-free and detergants and make up and things.. do i have to whole have my whole life gluten-free?! does it matter about things like shampoo and mascara and hand cream?

anyone have any idea about this in relation to lactose / cassin as well? as i have to avoid all dairy and lactose related products at the moe as well.

equally, if so where do i find the info?! i wrote to some of the companys but most havnt responded and the ones that did mostly said they list their ingrediants in accordence with the stanard manual of ingrediants (cant remeber the exact name) and thats not readily avaliable to the public with out a heft payment!

help?!

I am newly diagnosed too =

I wear bare essentials, or bare minerals - all there make-up is gluten free - I don't know if it is nickel free though.

Also, I had to take away any lotions as I was wearing one that had oatmeal in it, and my hand had a slight cut...well I still have a scar from it going inside the cut.

This bigger issue with makeup is that you're likely to touch your face and then eat your food and get contaminated that way. Some people do react to touching gluten products, but not all. I prefer to have my whole life gluten-free. When I go home, I have absolutely no worries about contamination or getting sick. I need my house to be a gluten-free zone in order to be 100% at ease there. I realize sometimes this is not possible, especially for those who live with other people.

Some companies are reluctant to give out ingredients because it's a "trade secret". If you do a search on this site, you'll find plenty of lists of gluten-free makeups. I use CoverGirl, Rimmel, Boots, Bonne Bell stuff. I read the package and usually go by that unless they make other products with gluten and I think there might be a contamination issue.

Here's my response from Boots. They were pretty quick with the reply.

Thank you for your inquiry regarding the No7 lipstick you purchased.

None of our lipsticks contain pure wheat rye, barley or oats. The No7 Moisture Drench lipsticks contain wheatgerm oil, therefore, if the allergy to gluten is strong, you may want to avoid using this product.

All of our skincare products are gluten free.

Thank you again for contacting Boots. Please let us know if we can be of further assistance.
