More Makeup Info: Clinique

Recommended Posts

In keeping with the recent spate of makeup threads, I though I'd share this info. I hadn't seen confirmation on the forum about these several Clinique products that I use, so I contacted the company and got the following response:

------------

Thank you for your interest in Clinique.

While a formulation may not contain wheat, oat, barley or rye derivatives, for the benefit of our gluten-sensitive consumers who may have cross-sensitivities, Clinique takes the extra precaution of including corn, rice and soy in our research.

All About Eyes Concealer - contains soy.

Color Surge Eyeshadow - contains corn and soy.

Eye Defining Liquid Liner - contains soy.

Lash Doubling Mascara - contains soy and corn.

Perfectly Real Makeup - contains soy.

Quickliner for Eyes - contains corn and soy.

In addressing your concern about gluten, we would like to explain that 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.

[sERVICETICKETTEXT] We trust that the above addresses your concern. We hope you will look to Clinique for all your skin care and beauty needs

Again, thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts and concerns.

Just to clarify, in case it's not obvious: I only asked them about gluten (not about corn or soy), so presumably these products are indeed gluten free, with the classic caveat that they are not ever able to be 100% sure.
