    Do you have questions about celiac disease or the gluten-free diet?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know of a gluten free make-up that you can buy locally? I can't seem to find any unless I want to order over the web.

Also - I was told that there are two sisters in Austin that make gluten free bread. Do any of you know who they are and how to get in touch with them?

I can't seem to find any gluten free hamburger buns, hot dog buns, etc. I looked at whole foods but no go.

My family loves to cook out so I need to find a good substitute. It just seems like it will be to hard to have to order everything on line. Plus I don't like to do that for security reasons. I am more of a spontanious person and having to do that much planning ahead will be hard for me.

Hi Vickie,

I might be able to help with the makeup question.

Everyday Minerals is Austin based (or close, anyway). But I do not believe they have an actual store that you can walk into. However, you don't have to purchase by credit card, you can contact them for details on paying by check. Or you might even explain your situation to them, and it's possible you might be able to visit them in person (no guarantees on that, but it couldn't hurt to try right?).

Also, I think Whole Foods and even Sprouts (is there one of those in Austin?) may carry some lines of mineral makeup.

I'll see if I can do some more digging for you and see what I can find.

As for the hamburger and hot dog buns, I would think you might have some luck at a smaller health food store. Do you know of any of those? Also, when you looked at Whole Foods, did you check the frozen aisles, or just in the bread aisles?

If you just looked in the bread aisles then check the frozen section. I'm just sure WF should have something.

If I find additional info for you, I'll either post here or send you a PM.

Somewhere floating around here there is a list of Neutrogena products that are gluten free. They will email you a list if you check with the company though...very good about it. They have a newer mineral makeup that I just bought that is on the list. I can't remember the name right off though.

I'm liking it OK...I'm used to having a thin layer of foundation and concealer under my eyes and I didn't have my list with me when I purchased the powder, blush and eye makeup. I didn't want to spend the dough and get the wrong thing. The applicator is the only thing that is weird...comes out through the middle of the brush so you have to apply it carefully or you will have a streak. I'm thinking about seeing if I can transfer the powder into something else and use my own brush. Color wise though...I like being able to look at what I get before I get it. Buying it online was not something that appealed to me.

Yes, I will be glad to! The Superbalance foundation and loose powder are gluten free as well as the Quickliner for lips and High Impact lip colour!

The long wear lipstick has gluten. The RepairWear eye cream and night cream has gluten. So does the eye makeup remover.

The Rinse-off foaming cleanser for make-up removal is gluten free!!!

I will post more asap!

Clinique's Lip Surge LipStick line is gluten free. I have noticed that they have gotten fewer and fewer in their display/sample cases. Most of their consultants don't seen to know much about gluten in their products, I have found.

Just wanted to let you know that I emailed Neutrogena last week and they emailed back that due to the manufacturing and handling process they cannot guarantee that any of their products are gluten free.

Hello, My daughter has recently had positive blood tests for coeliacs. But we havent started the gluten-free diet yet as we have to wait to have the gastroscopy. Do we need to look into gluten free makeup as well? Does it get absorbed through the skin? I wouldn't have thought it would have mattered? Please advise?

Thanks

I am also new to all this, having just been diagnosed last week. I was wondering the same thing about makeup and shampoo as I see on the forums a lot of people talking about using special products. Is it because it is absorbed or do some celiac's have a skin reaction? Thanks!

I think gluten does get absorbed through the skin, even if doctors say otherwise. Last time I tried to use Bath and Body Works lotion, which contains oats, I first got a skin rash, then I had gastro symptoms after a week of using it. My dd, she reacts with a typical gluten reaction (upset stomach, irritable, etc) with shampoo that has gluten in it. It's inevitable that some shampoo gets in the mouth, so I prefer it to be gluten free. I use Suave, they will list any gluten in their products. For makeup, I use Bare Minerals, it is gluten free and great for ultra sensitive skin like mine. Every other mineral product I have tried makes me break out like crazy, so I have to spend a few dollars, darn it, lol. Hope that helps some, I'm sure others will have suggestions for you!

Whether or not gluten can be absorbed through the skin is a topic of some debate, but I have decided to use only gluten-free makeup quite apart from that question. I just know that I'm not a person who never touches my face. I don't want to have to worry about getting gluten on my hands every time I scratch an itch or brush a stray hair out of my face.
