Are Mary Kay Acne Treatments Gluten-free?

Recommended Posts

Dear Gluten-Free Friends,

My best friend just began selling Mary Kay products. I was wondering about their acne gel and mask. My skin is broken out very badly. I was wondering if anyone knew if these items were safe. I have a list. The ingredients are as follows:

Acne Treatment Gel: aesculus hippocastanum (horse chestnut) seed extract, butylene glycol, butylparaben, carbomer, cucumis sativus (cucumber) fruit extract, diethylhexyl sodium sulfosuccinate, disodium edta, echinacea purpurea extract, ethylparaben, glycerin, isobutylparaben, methylparaben, phenoxyethanol, poloxamer 182, propylene glycol, propylparaben, silica, sodium hydroxide, water. Product is 5 percent benzoyl peroxide.

Clarifying Mask: water, kaolin, propylene glycol, C12-15, alcohols benzoate, magnesium aluminum silicate, tea lauryl sulfate, xanthan gum, chamomile extract, lavender extract, methylparaben, DMDM Hydantoin, D&C Violet #2, FD&C Red #4.

    Chances are if you have lumps on your body for years and the Dr. isn't concerned they're probably not lymph nodes. Chronically swollen lymph nodes would be something every Dr. would be concerned with.  Chances are you just have cysts ...
    It's different  for everyone, it can be a month or maybe a year. Most probably within a few months. This is assuming the symptoms are in fact related to gluten, which they may not be. 
    Hi Laura I'm so pleased you found answers.  This is very encouraging.  Seven years on from my own diagnosis I wish I could have some vitamin and mineral screening, I'm sure I'm still deficient. Cristiana
