Urgent: What's Safe To Use?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Could you share which brand names you used or currently using and that are gluten free?

Soap, shampoo and after shamp., shower gel, tooth paste, moisturizer for the body and face etc.

Also, if you know ingredients that contain gluten but are hidden it is good to know. Like vit E = hidden wheat.

Nadia-- saw your response to the Clarins post. Yep-- that list is pretty much everything. I have posted a lot of responses here because I had something happen to me like what happened to you-- I broke out in DH blisters. There is a lovely picture on my blog (linked on my page here) almong with a list of safe stuff I found.

So here is some of what I have that I like so far:

makeup:

All NARS and Shisheido products are gluten free.

Smashbox has lots of safe products (not mascaras)

100% pure lip gloss and blush/lipstick

Chanel lipstick and lipgloss

Other people have mentioned items from Clinique (lipstick,) Lancome (absolut rouge,) and Everyday Minerals. I listed responses from T LeClerc, Guerlain and some other dept store brands.

Shampoo and toiletries (I get them from Sephora and Skinstore):

Lots of LUSH products are safe (I posted a list of ingredients to avoid here)-- shampoo, shower gel, lotion, conditioner, deoderant and even hairstyling products, not to mention bath stuff (bombs, bubble baths, etc.)

Lots of Sundari products (skincare)

Lots of korres (see list here) products are okay-- not the shampoos, though. But they have a styling wax for hair, as well as akincare and lotions.

100% pure is safe lotion and soap.

Burt's Bees has a safe list (it is just a few threads down from this one at the moment.)

Phytologie products have a safe shampoo (jojoba), hairspray (pro) and karanja oil spray

Other people have lists on here of items you can get in a grocery store as well as Dr. Bronners soaps and Weleda (check them out on Saffron Rouge if there isn't a healthfood store near you)

I use crest, but almost all toothpastes are safe with a few exceptions (I believe someone said sensodyne cannot confirm gluten-free status)

As for cleaning products, all of Mrs. Meyers Clean Day products are okay (not the fabric softener or dryer sheets, I think). If you have a brand to check, search it here and something will generally pop-up. You can also look on the internet at the company page. I use all and dawn and comet.

Good luck!

Thank you very much Lisa. This is gonna be like a scavenger hunt. I am so used to Clarins, Proactive, Sensodyne and a few others. I think I will probably find stuff in a big health food store... I am glad I live in a big city.

Vitamin E (as tocopherol) can be derived from wheat, but can also be from other sources. These include oils from sunflower, almond, hazelnut, walnut, olive, peanut and others. This is a case where you have to ask and cannot assume.

I forgot Caudalie (only three things inc shampoo have gluten) and Juara (no gluten ingredients). EcoNvey has no gluten ingredients, but cannot call themselves gluten free (Australia is super strict) because "they don't walk the fields." The wrote this in an email. Alba botanicals cannot guarantee gluten free status. You have to decide where you draw the line sometimes.

There are lots of supermarket/ mainstream brands that are safe too-- I think some suave, pantene and garnier products are okay. There are certain Loreal (their list is posted on here) and Maybelline products too. Just read a few threads on here and you will find products you like.

Remember to use the search feature-- it really comes in handy. Sometimes the threads are old, so you have to try to find the most up-to-date info there is. There are some "master lists" (my term) for household products too-- you will find them listed here as well.

Good luck!

Sorry for the late reply. For me checking every ingredient is so confusing and it seems like I would need years to learn the tricks. The easiest way is maybe to make my own shampoo :rolleyes: or just go to the health food store and ask what's gluten free.

Sorry for the late reply. My house was being painted and I almost asked if the paint was gluten free :lol: Thanks again for the info. I think I need to go to Australia! I always liked that place and not only they have sunny weather and warmth but they are also strict on gluten!

Today, I started telling some members of my family that I went gluten free. They don't live in the same country and they have never heard of gluten intolerance. I told my brother and my mother who show some symptoms to stop eating bread, pasta and anything made of white flour. They asked what they were going to eat if they stop all that. So, I said to mom that since she always complained and doctors often misdiagnosed her she could give it a try and see for her. My mom had to take medicines for depression for 20 years until recently when a doctor told her she didn't need them. But I always knew my mother didn't have a depression, she had depressive times only. The only problem is while I am very open to new things and like to learn, others in my family are set in their old ways and they won't like to question much.
