This is a responce I got from E.L.F. cosmetics. They have very cheap products (no, they are not high quality, but a few things I like or I buy things I only use a few times for special occassions)

Email responce from them on 11/20/09:

Thank you for your interest in e.l.f. Cosmetics. Our products do not contain gluten or beeswax. Please be aware, however, that we cannot guarantee that the machinery used to process our products are completely gluten free.

Sincerely,

BOUNCE:::

I was not completely pleased with this responce. Yes, it is great to know they don't contain gluten but I felt like they were putting me down for caring about completely elliminating gluten from my life.

Jessie thank you for contacting Bounce.

I can only imagine how frustrating it can be to find that you have allergies to products containing Gluten, especially since it's found in so many of the items we use everyday. You'll be happy to know that none of our fabric or home care products including Bounce contain gluten.

Usually eating gluten is the cause of the rash - not products applied to the skin. Because fabric sheets and other home care products aren't ingested they are not seen as a cause of the symptoms of Celiac Disease.

We know Celiac is a serious disease, and since gluten sensitivity can vary from person to person you might consider using our Bounce Free dryer sheets, they

I am loving the Bounce letter..LOL <_<

Seriously they start with the gluten allergy, then go to say Celiac Disease..."Hello, those are different!" Then to suggest that gluten on the skin isn't an issue, what about those with DH? Can't they have a skin reaction? Maybe I am wrong here, but common! Don't try to sound educated in something you

Herbal Essences is out.

Thank you for contacting Herbal Essences.

Gluten is a protein found in wheat, rye, and barley. Although it is typically not added directly to our products, it may be present in fragrances. Due to the difficulty of tracing the source ingredients for the variety of fragrances used in manufacturing our products, we can not provide specific levels of gluten content for any of our fragrance blends.

Be aware that even products labeled "unscented" will still contain a masking scent, therefore they may potentially contain gluten.

We are sorry we could not be more helpful at this time.

You want to look for "fragrance free" rather than "unscented." Unscented may mean that there are multiple fragrances which net to no detectable scent. Fragrance free means nothing added for odor reasons--a fragrance free product may have a slight natural aroma, whereas the "unscented" version has an artificial scent to neutralize (mask) the natural aroma.

JANE IREDALE:

Dear Jessica,

Thank you for your inquiry. For a complete list of ingredients, please visit our website at http://janeiredale.com/tips_glossary.html. The following products contain wheat based ingredients:

Purelash Original and Lengthening mascaras (hydrolyzed wheat protein)

Purebrow Color (hydrolyzed wheat protein)

Purebrow Fix and Mascara (hydrolyzed wheat protein)

Purelash Conditioner (hydrolyzed wheat protein)

Absence (wheat starch)

Eye Highlighter Pencil (wheat germ glycerides)

Overall, everything we use is highly purified and refined. Our powders have been subjected to rigorous sensitivity and non-comedogenicity tests, and have produced excellent results on these. However, it is always possible for any given person to develop a sensitivity to anything at any time. Where sensitivity is a concern, we always recommend consulting with your physician and patch testing before purchase and use of the products.

For best results, we do recommend in-person shopping whenever possible, because it allows you to try out the products and get more personalized service. For a list of retailers in your area, please check out our "Where to Buy" page at http://www.janeiredale.com/wheretobuy.html.

Best regards,

Christine
