Hi Everyone,

I've been contacting companies to find out if there products contain gluten. As you know this is a difficult process and getting a straight answer does not always happen. Here's what I got so far and wanted to share...


Thank you for contacting us. Gluten can be found in products that

contain wheat/rye/barley derivatives. Most smashbox products (including

the PRIMER and BLUSH) do not contain gluten, however the following

products do:

That's a Wrap Mascara

Bionic Mascara

Halo Hydrating Perfecting Powder

Layer Lash Primer

Limitless Lash Waterproof Mascara

Lip Treatment

Tinted Lip Treatment

*be sure to double check the complete ingredients on the unit carton.

Best Wishes,

Customer Service

Here's some more reply's I've received:


You were question about our products being gluten free. All of our hair conditioners have a form of wheat germ in them, and while all of our other products are free of it, they are all made in the same plant. With that being said, cross-contamination could happen.

I hope this answers your question.

Thanks for your interest in our products.

I've used Lancome's 'Le Rouge Absolu" line of lipsticks for a couple of years and had no problems. This line is gluten-free. Lancome has always been very helpful and forthright about this. It's also been nice that an employee at the Lancome at Macy's in Portsmouth, NH has celiac and is very knowledgable about the line.

A vast number of raw materials from many different suppliers and sources are used in the manufacture of Estee Lauder Companies' products. It is therefore not possible for us to fully guarantee that our products are completely free of ingredients that may elicit an allergic response in highly sensitive individuals who react to gluten. For example, it is possible that small amounts of a wheat sourced ingredient may remain on shared manufacturing equipment even after a thorough cleaning. We therefore recommend that you discuss this with your physician, because consumer safety is of utmost concern to us.
