I just bought the new Physician's Formula Organic Wear tinted moisturizer and noticed that the second to last ingredient is wheat germ glucosides. Is that ok if it is in face makeup? :( Does anyone know? I don't want to use it until I know for sure.

It really isn't good. It was stuff like that that kept me glutened despite avoiding most other sources. When you buy things you have to watch ingredients like a hawk. I had to throw out some liquid hand washing soap in a nice pump that had caramel coloring in it--also gluten based. Etc. Etc. Trade off for me was no more joint pain, more clear thinking, no headaches and less anxiety. Though the other side of that is that you have to be even more careful not to get CC'd.

Other people here on celiac.com have similar experiences, so if you really want off the gluten stay away from products like that, including your lipsticks etc. This celiac is an auto immune disease, so its not the same as an allergy like I once thought.


Diagnosed celiac sprue as infant: failure to thrive & pneumonia-back on grains age 4. Began herbs 1971 combating chronic kidney disease/general ill health 1973. Avoid wheat family and "allergens" by 1980. Late 80's doc. diagnosed candida: cave-man diet. Diagnosed degraded myelin sheath 2006; need co-enzyme B vitamins. Discovered celiac fall 2007; finally told diagnosis as infant. Recently found I am salicylic acid intolerant. Ironically can't tolerate most herbs now. Can now eat brown rice & other gluten-free grains (except corn) & even maple syrup & now homeopathic medicine works! Am still exploring the shape of this elephant but I've made progress!
