I have bolded the most likely chemicals to be gluten derived. Did you ask them directly if any of the ingredients are derived from wheat or oats or other gluten grains or oils?

I did. This is their response:

"Thank you for writing to us at Benefit Cosmetics. Benefit Cosmetics does not test for or claim that our products are hypoallergenic (least likely to cause a reaction), gluten free or non-comedogenic (does not cause pimples & blackheads)."

Thanks for letting me know about those ingredients. Is there a place where I can look them up?

Ravenwood is right--I've been glutened by products containing tocopherols, as they can be derived from wheat.

Because of their statement, I would either not use the product, or at least contact the company again and ask where they derive the ingredient in question.

FYI--Burt's Bees states that their vitamin E (tocopherol) is derived from soy.

this makes sense. I have been wondering why I was getting worse by using lip salves containing tocopherol or tocopherol acetate. I maybe developing a wheat allergy but I know that I have a topical reaction to soy which is why the lipsalves don't work only make my lips sting and burn. Does anyone know of any salves or lipsticks that don't contain these ingredients?

Hi I have just joined the site and noticed your question about lipbalms.

Have you looked at www.anousta.co.uk in the Uk

Excellent lipbalms...no tocopherol.

How is Almond oil for most Celiac's?

The ingredients are simple and uncomplicated. Almond oil. Cocoabutter. and a little beeswax. Essential oil flavours or unscented is available. Any help?

After getting badly glutened (DH blisters!) by some lipgloss iwht no "obvious" gluten products except tocopherol, I went through my cosmetics basket and started writing companies. I wrote to about 30 companies yesterday alone. I will be posting their replies as they come in.

This is a frustrating part of celiac because many of these companies cannot or will not commit. Well then, I cannot or will not commit to buying their products! I hope money really does talk.
