I am new here, but I have been diagnosed since may of last year. I have used this site so much to help me figure out how to manage everything. I have been doing *ok* at the diet, but I just realized that i have to replace ALL my beauty products. I am a huge Aveda fan and my skin is so sensitive and it took me years to find face and hair products that work for me but I just learned that they all contain gluten! Luckily, my make up is Bare Essenciauls and bare minerals, but everything else I use has to go! Does anyone know of good quality, natural alternatives I could use to replace my Aveda and Aveeno products?

The Giovanni products are nice. Even their golden wheat shampoo is gluten-free, and yes I spoke to the rep about that as it doesn't have a lick of wheat in it. I liked the 50/50 shampoo and Smooth as Silk conditioner. They also have a number of new styling products, I used to use the hair gel, and skin care but I haven't checked the gluten statis of most of those.

Try Dove and Neutrogena. I've contacted the companies before and they have gluten free products. Just search for them on this forum. Neutrogena even emailed me a list of their gluten free products.

After much investigation, here is what I found that works for me.

I have multiple sensitivities, including sodium lauryl sulfate and I have trouble with many "hypoallergenic" products (including weleda and kneip). I finally found some that are mostly natural and scented with botanicals, rather than chemicals.

Gluten-free hair/ face/ bath/body lines I like:

*Caudalie (only 3 products, including the shampoo, have gluten) Lotions, face care, soaps

*100% pure (except the mascara, their tocopherols are from rice bran.) Skin care, soaps and cosmetics.

*Sundari skincare (read the ingredients-- many products are okay) face and body

*Korres natural products (they sent a spreadsheet with safe products) Skin care, hair care (styling products!)

*LUSH cosmetics-- they have a full line of gluten free products and SLS free soaps. Read the ingredients. But the have shampoos (solids!), conditioners, styling products, deoderants, creams, face care, soaps, bath products, lotions, etc.

*Juara skincare (most products are gluten free, but they cannot guarantee no trace amounts from their suppliers)

*Burt's Bees-- on their website, they feature a long list of gluten free products, including deoderants, toothpaste, hair case, face care and body care products and makeup. This company is another winner for me.

Make-up lines:

-Smashbox (everything is gluten-free)

-NARS (everything is gluten-free)

-T. LeClerc makeup (everything is gluten-free)

-Clarins (they sent a long list of unsafe products)

-Lancome-- some lipsticks

-Clinique-- some lipsticks

-Chanel lipstick and lipgloss-- all of it.

Good luck~ for me this was harder than the food ever was because the label laws are different and many companies honestly do not know what is in there.

    Oh yes, it could, although to be honest I never got myself so wet with sweat that it would have been a serious situation.  However, I can remember one time when I got caught in a cloudburst while going to my car in a large parking lot, though, and got soaked to the skin, and of course had to wear those soaking-wet clothes while I drove the 45 minutes it took me to get home --- I will NEVER forgot the misery and agony of that drive!  I could just barely keep the car under control, in fact.
    Thanks for your response, Squirmingitch, but I have to almost laugh, as at this point I am not really stressing over these questions at all --- just curious.  I have always been an insatiable question-asker, so please don't take my frequent questions as a sign of my obsessing over celiac disease or DH.  Yeah, admittedly I was rather stressed out for a couple of days two weeks  ago or so, but I am significantly settled down now, even while negotiating the nutritional maze of trying to manage two
Water?! That's… unreasonably inconvenient. Did it happen with sweat?
