Welcome! These two are the concern for me: Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Tocopherol Acetate (Vitamin E). Vitamin E is often sourced from our favorite plant, wheat. The lipstick alternatives I've found are from Target: Pixi Lip Blush. It is a lip stain, so lasts all day. Down side is the price ($18), and it seems to be somewhat drying. Or that could my tendency to not drink enough water!! It does last forever, though, so that's good on the price side. Works well with chapstick on top. Good luck with the hunt.

What brand name of lipstick is this?


1960s-had symptoms-could have been before but don't remember

1970s-told had colitis or nervous stomach-was given phenobarbital, felt great but still had symptoms

Me, dd and ds diagnosed with Lactose Intolerance

2000-osteopenia

2001-had stroke because of medications I was given

June 2003-saw Chiropractor who specialized in nutrition: Celiac Disease not Lactose Intolerance, went gluten free with once in awhile cheating, off soy and dairy for about 6 months

June 2003-found excellent doctor for fibromyalgia (who has found out she has Celiac Disease)

May 2006-went gluten free with NO cheating-excellent! Made all the difference in the world

The Canadian Celiac Association considers all forms of tocopherol to be gluten-free.

I am such a dummy. I had no idea Tocopherol could come from wheat. :unsure: My gluten-free DD has had a weird rash and just recently started wearing make-up. Maybe it's time to re-check those labels and make sure she's not getting anything she shouldn't. EEEEGAAADS.

Pixi is the brand - it's one of those special Target lines of makeup.

Check out the lip shimmers by Burt's bees, in the darker colors. They apply just like lipstick. My only complaint is that they don't last very long - I have to reapply every two hours. But the color is deep and it feels very yummy with its peppermint finish.


Gluten free: Nov. 2009

Peanut and dairy free: Dec. 2009

Rediscovered dairy: March 2010 (in small quantities)

Peanuts added back: June 2010 (in small quantities)

I called Neutrogena with the lipstick in my hand from the store. They checked the particular color/kind that I had and it happened to be gluten free. They do not carry a list of gluten free cosmetics, but said that I could call them with a certian item and they would look it up for me. Good luck!
