Kaiti,

I read your post about gluten-free products..I need shampoo (I've been using Thermosilk), moisturizer (I use oil of Olay), and face make-up (I use Mac), and shaving cream.

Do you know offhand if these are gluten-free or have recommendations for gluten-free?

Someone here said Coppertone is all gluten-free..do u know if that is true?

jknnej- I use dove soaps, shampoos, and conditioners, hairsprays etc....I called them and was told that they will not hide anything in their ingredients. I like to stick with one brand that I know is gluten-free. It is easier for me at least.

For makeup ALL of Bare Escentuals makeup is gluten-free...lipstick, eye liner and shadow, mascara etc...some of the moisturizers are and the ones that are not will show the ingredients but again all the makeup is. I use banana boat sunscreen when I use sunscreen (I hardly use it) I have heard that coppertone is gluten-free but I have not checked with them personally.

Last I heard Oil of olays body wash and moisturizers were gluten-free. I have not checked with them in a while though. I was told by Proctor& Gamble that anything manufactured by them don't hide wheat,rye, barley, or oats under anything.

For other Moisturizers I use Neutrogena. They sent me a gluten-free list of their products. If you are interested in that I would be more than happy to send it to you.

Hope this helps :D

I called Lancome a week or so ago and I checked about 10 things of lipstick and they said it was all gluten-free. But when I asked about all of their products they said they could not guarantee it and I would have to check with each individual thing. So do you know if all the products are gluten-free molly? That would be really cool if that whole brand was gluten-free as well :D

While this makeup thread is going, I was looking, too, for gluten-free powder and foundation, as that is the most likely thing that I could injest other than lipstick (when I'm washing my face at night, there's sometimes "run-off" from the water onto my lips, and I'm trying to be SO careful!).

Any good powders or foundations? I currently use all Clinique makeup, other than Cover Girl lipstick.

jmengert-Be careful about CoverGirl lipstick. I called them and they said that their lipsticks were good except they told me the ones with fragrance in them could have traces of gluten in them.

I also called Clinique and they could not guarantee me so I threw all of my clinique stuff away:( I like that brand 2.

The foundation I use in Bare Escentuals. It works really good for me. There whole line is gluten-free as well.

Yeah, I thought that I would have to get rid of my Clinique stuff. I think that I'm just going to go get all MAC stuff and maybe mix in some Lancome. It's so expensive, though, and I hate that I have to get rid of my makeup that wasn't so cheap itself, either. So very annoying!

I know it is so expensive. I use Bare Escentuals and since I had to switch lines my parents are paying half and even then I find it expensive :lol: I had to get rid of literally all the makeup and that was hard because some of the colors worked so good for me...but then I figured it it makes me feel better I'll find another good color. Hope you find something that works well :D

Mary Kay foundation and powder are glutenfree, as are the lipsticks, eye shadows, and blushes. The waterproof mascara is glutenfree, but the other two they sell are not. The clear nail polish, base, and top coat are gluten-free, but the colored nail polishes all have wheat in them. Mary Kay is the only makeup I use, so it is the only one I know anything about.

Could somebody tell me how they found out MAC is gluten-free, because I got a different response from them. They said they wouldn't guarantee anything and sent me a very long list of things to read in the very tiny printed ingredients statement of each product I'd consider buying. If it's all gluten-free across the board, so to speak, that would be a relief.

Gals- You should of seen me in the hair salon the other day........... Telling them that the shampoo/ conditioner had to be totally wheat free/ gluten-free. OMG they called the companies and went crazy.

jknnej-QVC offers kits with their products so if you go to their site they have a whole thing for the bare escentuals brand. You can go to bareescentuals.com to learn more about their products. Also, you can look up kits on ebay but make sure they are new and sealed. I got some good deals from off of their. I love this brand.

This is a great question! :)

I can't tell you how many companies I have contacted with this same question. I have basically recieved the same answer from everyone. Even Johnson and Johnson for their baby lotion, "We do not add gluten to our products but cannot guarantee it because many of our ingredients come from outside sources." How ridiculous is that? <_< You would think they would want to know what's in thier own product!

I did however, get an answer from maybelline recently, they said to look in the "International Cosmetic Ingredient Dictionary" which is a standard in the industry. I was going to check it out online but have not had a chance yet.

It does drive me crazy though, how you can't seem to get clear responses from companies. I can't remember which one it was but one of them said "we have talked to doctors about this and have been told that since you have to ingest gluten to be affected by it, and that lotions, shampoos, and makeups are applied to the skin, that it should not be a problem." This is nuts!! :blink: Anything applied to the skin, soaks in at a cellular level. If not, then lotion companies are putting out false advertisements! Anything on the skin can cause rashes, allergic reations, ect. who are these doctors?

Hi - this is my first attempt to post a message so I hope it works! My daughter and I have both been diagnosed with celiac disease in the last two years and only now have realised that gluten-free means makeup too!!

We have had fabulous and detailed help from Justine Vella at the Estee Lauder group of companies.

These include: Clinique, Estee Lauder, Mac, Donna Karan, Tommy Hilfiger,Origins,Bobbi Brown,Michael Kors,and Jo Malone. Send an email to Justine with your preferred products and she will check them out for you and where necessary will recommend an alternative. She has made a difference to us overnight as I have discovered I have been using lipliners containing gluten - and I thought I was being so careful!!

Hope this helps!

I use cover girl loose powder- i've never had a problem with it, but does anyone know off hand if it is safe? Also, what about Maybelline products. I just bought shiny-licious lip gloss, and didnt even think that it could make me sick.... I think i read some where on here before that estee lauder lipstick is not gluten-free? is that true?... Also does anyone know about avon products? I just want to be safe, before apply my make-up again! Thanks girls!

Are there products really gluten free? For some reason whenever I use Estee Lauder products or Clinique products I can horrible headaches and my eyes get bloodshot. I also read earlier on in this post that someone stated that Skintimate shaving cream is gluten free. I was actually just looking into this because everytime I use it my legs break out in a blotchy rash. Maybe I'm allergic to something else in these products...

After readin Kaiti's posts on Bare Essentuals, I got some and tried it. This stuff is great. It takes some practice since the process is a little different than with the drugstore brands, but it has a much softer, less made-up look to it. I just got a few items, but I am definitely going back for more. I am getting way too many compliments to quit now.

anyone know offhand a drugstore brand (maybelline, covergirl, etc.) that has nail polish that is gluten-free?  I love to paint my 2 year olds nails, but now am afraid to gluten her.

Most common store brands contain wheat starch. My mom had to change her nail polish so she would not have wheat on them while preparing food for me. Here is a brand that has gluten free nail polish:

Thank you for your inquiry. We are proud to offer a nail polish and

conditioner system that contains:

- No Polyurethanes

- No Formaldehyde or Formaldehyde like derivatives

- No Toluene, Ketones or petrochemical solvents

- No Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP) or other phthalates

- No Parabens or Camphor

- No aromatic hydrocarbons

- No Gluten or Wheat product derivatives

As for an explicit list of ingredients, our polish is a water base with a

proprietary acrylic emulsion and non-toxic pigments. If you require explicit

product information regarding any sensitivities you have, please let us know

what you're allergic to and we will find out for you. Our water based

remover is also safer than conventional remover by being water based with

aloe vera and isopropanol, and is exclusively required for removing

Acquarella nail polish.
