Gluten-Free Cosmetics

I have purchased some speciality make-up that was marketed as gluten free, but would still like the option of buying cosmetics at the pharmacy and department store. What are the gluten ingredients commonly used in cosmetics that I need to be wary of when shopping? I know of a few: wheat germ oil, hydrolized wheat protein, and oat fiber. Are there any others?

Thank you so much for providing that list. Dextrin and maltodextrin are on the safe ingredient list provided by this site. Is this debatable information? I am assuming something would not be considered safe to eat and unsafe for cosmetics.

Thanks again!

Tocopherol and Tocopheral Acetate can sometimes contain wheat. We usually call if we see that ingredient to see if it was sourced from wheat.

Food and cosmetics have different labeling regs. If dextrin or maltodextrin are wheat derived in food they must be declared as derived from wheat and are usually from corn in the US. In cosmetics and drugs the source does not not need to be disclosed. That may be why it is on the cosmetics list.

Eeeeek! Now I am nervous. The hand sanitizer I use every day has Tocopheryl Acetate (vitamin e) listed in the ingredients. I have tried to research but naturally I am finding conflicting information. I have info that says tocopheryl acetate is derived from soy, a few say it can sometimes be derived from wheat. I have seen online that a TON of gluten free speciality products contain this ingredient. So does anyone know the scoop or have more info on tocopheryl or tocopheryl acetate??

I swear I will never fully grasp this gluten-free lifestyle. Ugh, things are always lurking!

I am sorry to interfere, I have no answer but related concerns...hope this is ok :)

I was recently wondering about burt's bees products cause I use some, and a lot of them have tocopherol (origin not precised), so I contacted them and they replied I should check the ingredients, but that even for the products not containing gluten ingredients, they can't guaranty the gluten-free status -because of possible cc.

So it leaves me still wondering: not just because the possible cc, but also because they didn't precise the tocopherol thing.

I am sad, I love this brand! (and their honey lip balm!!) but it is too important, I can't overlook the problem (the lip balm is an important question for everyone; and the shampoo in my mouth/ ingesting hand cream because I eat some finger food after can definitely happen to me!)

Anyone has advice on another brand?? I am definitely picky, very dry & sensitive skin here, so I need gluten-free + organic/ no chemicals products...the less ingredients, the best!

I seem to always have problems finding a cream that moisturizes my hands enough (I usually use foot cream :))

...recently began using coconut oil and its great for my body but doesn't really do it for my hands (shampoo shouldn't be too hard, just need something soft on my skin)

Heard of "california baby", any feedback on that ??

Thank you!

Sophie

I have recently contacted the following companies:

ALOETTE: NOT Gluten-Free

***Thank you for your interest in Aloette! We are sorry for the

inconvenience but, Astral Brands does not currently have a product list

for our products that contain gluten. We would like to explain that most

of our raw materials come from many different suppliers and we use

multiple sources in the manufacture of our products. Due to this, it is

possible that small amounts of a wheat sourced ingredient may remain on

shared manufacturing equipment even after thorough cleaning, causing

concern for cross contamination in our products.Therefore, it is not possible for us to fully guarantee that our

products are completely free of ingredients that may cause an allergic

reaction in sensitive individuals who react to gluten.***

L'OREAL: Gives a gluten ingredient list:

***Avena Sativa (Oat) Kernel Flour

Avena Sativa (Oat) Kernel Extract

OLAY: Some are (the entire PRO X line), some are not (but they did not resist the temptation to tell me that my inquiry was not necessary, according to their consulted doctors, as the items are applied externally - which seemed to insult the very nature of my inquiry as well as both my experience and intelligence)

***We know Celiac is a serious disease, so we want to give you clear information regarding the use of our beauty care products. If wheat and/or gluten aren't directly added to a product by us, these ingredients won't be listed on our packages. Like many companies, we often purchase the scents for fragranced products from outside suppliers, and the components of these substances are proprietary information belonging to those companies. Therefore it's possible that a very small amount (generally parts per million) of gluten may be present. It may be helpful to know that the entire Pro X line is gluten free.

We sought advice from physicians; they told us it would be very unlikely a person with Celiac disease would have a reaction from a trace amount of gluten coming into contact with his skin or hair. This is because wheat, rye, barley and/or gluten generally cause symptoms when they're ingested. Since our beauty care products are designed to be used externally on the skin, their use shouldn't be an issue for someone with this disease.

Since gluten sensitivity can vary among people, it would be best if you consulted with your physician about the use of all types of consumable goods, if you haven't already. You might even consider using one of our fragrance free products that doesn't list gluten or wheat extracts on the label.

Thanks again for getting in touch with us. I hope this response has been helpful to you. For more information about Celiac, you may want to check out http://celiac.com/ and http://celiac.org***

I contacted Estee Lauder regarding the skincare and cosmetic line. I received a pretty comprehensive list below. However, I'm thinking that if it's probably safe to use their eye shadows as long as it doesn't get ingested. Thoughts?

Could you post a link to this list? Some of the items appear to be soy, corn (which does have gluten but is not an issue celiac wise), and coconut derived.

I am sorry to interfere, I have no answer but related concerns...hope this is ok :)

I was recently wondering about burt's bees products cause I use some, and a lot of them have tocopherol (origin not precised), so I contacted them and they replied I should check the ingredients, but that even for the products not containing gluten ingredients, they can't guaranty the gluten-free status -because of possible cc.

So it leaves me still wondering: not just because the possible cc, but also because they didn't precise the tocopherol thing.

I am sad, I love this brand! (and their honey lip balm!!) but it is too important, I can't overlook the problem (the lip balm is an important question for everyone; and the shampoo in my mouth/ ingesting hand cream because I eat some finger food after can definitely happen to me!)

Anyone has advice on another brand?? I am definitely picky, very dry & sensitive skin here, so I need gluten-free + organic/ no chemicals products...the less ingredients, the best!

I seem to always have problems finding a cream that moisturizes my hands enough (I usually use foot cream :))

...recently began using coconut oil and its great for my body but doesn't really do it for my hands (shampoo shouldn't be too hard, just need something soft on my skin)

Heard of "california baby", any feedback on that ??

Thank you!

Sophie

Hi Sophie,

I know you posted this a while ago, but I found Ecco Bella online and they are great. The lotion is great and they also have an entire line of cosmetics that are gluten free, organic and cruelty free. They all work great!

This is very helpful information! Thank you to those of you who have researched this! I am wondering about the coloring:

FD & C Red No. 4, Red No. 33, Blue No. 1, and Yellow No. 5 in lotions and soaps? Does anyone know if these are things to stay away from? Thank you.

I recently ordered from Afterglow Cosmetics...their products are all gluten free, sulfate and paraben free! I am waiting for my order to arrive but the reviews are wonderful! Also Burt's Bees has a gluten free list that is fairly extensive. I don't have the list currently as my grocery store lists the gluten free products.

Ok so what are the safe cosmetc brands? Department store, drugstore? Thanks.

You may need to check each product you use with the company. Or you can post your favorites here and folks might know if the item is safe. Most department and drugstore brands will have some items that are safe and some that aren't so it isn't ususaly possible to give a 'blank' company is gluten-free.

Some companies will have a list of safe items on their website or will send you a list if you call their 800 numbers.

I'm sorry I'm not answering your question about drugstore brands, but I just recently found this company - http://www.everydayminerals.com.

I contacted them, and they said all their products are gluten free, vegan based, and free of carmine, nuts, lake dyes, fragrance, bismuth oxychloride and parabens.

Their products are SERIOUSLY reasonably priced (and I'm cheap!), plus they offer FREE samples of their foundation to help you choose your coverage/color.

I have to agree their products are great and the samples make it inexpensive to try and see if you like it. Well worth waiting a few days for it to come in the mail.

After calling Neutrogena, Revlon, L'Oreal, Maybelline, etc. I started to pick up a pattern. Will they put their assurances in WRITING. Many will not. From some companies, I got a positive answer from the call line, and a we cannot comment or assure you of that in an e-mail when I sent a separate e-mail request to the same company. I repeatedly got answers that referred me to the call line, where I would get a representative where everything (or most everything) I asked about was magically "gluten-free." But the company would put nothing in writing (a Neutrogena rep even informed me that they don't have e-mail so she could not send me the list in writing).

After a while, I got suspicious.

And really, when a company gets as large as some of these are they get their product components from bidding for the lowest price possible from multiple vendors. The company has not overseen every component of their products from start to finish; many times(or even most of the time) they cannot guarantee the exact sourcing or lack of contamination of the products.

Maybe, just maybe, they are too big to really care about little ole us.

I've used products from Neutrogena, Revlon, L'Oreal and Maybelline without issue. Since I don't ingest them nor do I have DH, I've had no problems using them. I think personal care products are generally more difficult to verify the gluten-free status. Most companies give a standard CYA response.

Edit: I should qualify that to say that obviously lipsticks or lip balms do need to be gluten-free.

    General Mills Gluten-Free Oats Patent Could Be a Gamer Changer
    Celiac.com 09/25/2018 - In a patent application that could have a huge impact on the gluten-free industry, General Mills, Inc. has described its method and system for removing foreign, gluten-containing grains to establish gluten-free oats. Current FDA guidelines require all products labeled gluten-free to have a maximum gluten content of 20 parts per million (ppm). 
    Published August 23rd, patent application No. US 20180236453 A1 details a method for producing oat grains with gluten levels below 20 ppm and, more preferably, below 10 ppm. 
    Natural oats generally do not contain gluten, but after harvest, transport and storage, large batches of raw oats may contain small amounts of gluten-containing grains, such as wheat, barley, rye and triticale. These can sometimes occur at levels exceeding 20 ppm.
    The General Mills patent application describes a method of arranging mechanical oat sorting operations in series, or in both series and parallel operations. The multi-step process best includes width grading, multiple length grading steps, along with a potential de-bearding step.
    The resulting oats will be gluten-free to under 20 ppm, and possibly to under 10 ppm, and are suitable for the production of  gluten-free oat food products, including cereals and granolas.
    To receive a patent, General Mills will have to prove that their process does what they say it does. A successful patent for General Mills could have a huge effect on the gluten-free oat foods industry. For one, it may allow General Mills to become a major supplier of gluten-free oats for other manufacturers. 
    The benefits of larger scale, more economical gluten-free oat production could include more, and more readily available, gluten-free oat products, along with lower prices for both manufacturers and consumers. Stay tuned for more developments on this and related stories.

    AN-PEP Successfully Degrades Gluten in Rye Sourdough Products
    Celiac.com 09/24/2018 - A team of researchers recently set out to investigate the degradation of gluten in rye sourdough products by means of a proline-specific peptidase.
    The research team included Theresa Walter, Herbert Wieser, and Peter Koehler, with the Deutsche Forschungsanstalt für Lebensmittelchemie, Leibniz Institut in Freising, Germany.
    Their team monitored gluten content of rye sourdough during fermentation using competitive ELISA based on the R5 antibody. The team noted a decrease in gluten over time, but found that even prolonged fermentation did not bring gluten levels below 20 ppm requirement for gluten-free foods. 
    Interestingly, they did find that Aspergillus niger prolyl endopeptidase (AN-PEP) extensively degraded gluten concentrations of up to 80,000 mg/kg in rye flour, rye sourdough, and sourdough starter under specific temperatures and pH values. Nor did the enzyme inactivate the microorganisms in the sourdough starter. 
    Gluten-free rye flour alone or in combination with sourdough starter was used to produce gluten-free bread, which the team then assessed for its sensory characteristics. 
    Whereas gluten-free sourdough bread lacked any of the favorable qualities of conventional rye bread, the replacement of sourdough by egg proteins yielded gluten-free bread comparable to the conventional rye, and with better qualities than bread made with naturally gluten-free ingredients. 
    This study demonstrates the feasibility of using ANPEP treatment to produce high-quality gluten-free sourdough bread from originally gluten-containing cereals, such as rye. 
    Rye products rendered gluten-free in this manner have the potential to increase the choice of high-quality foods for celiac patients.

    Living with Celiac Disease in South Korea
    Celiac.com 09/21/2018 - The English as a Second Language (ESL) pie is so large in countries such as South Korea that there seem to be enough helpings for anyone interested. However, these generous slices may be off limits to individuals with severe food allergies or intolerances, including those with celiac disease. If you have diet restrictions and are thinking of heading to South Korea or another Asian country, the following information will help you decide whether or not this move is a good idea.
    One might think that Asia, the land of rice-based meals, would be a celiac’s paradise. As one naïve dietician told me before I moved to Seoul, “You couldn’t be going to a better place.” This assumption could not be further from the truth. If cooked with traditional ingredients, many local dishes are gluten-free. However, in Korea, wheat flour is now cheaper than other kinds of flour, despite the fact that it has to be imported. Wheat flour and barley are currently the two most common ingredients in Korean food products.
    In Korea, eleven major food allergens must be included on product labels: poultry eggs, milk, buckwheat, peanuts, soybean, wheat, mackerel, crab, pork, peaches, and tomatoes. As for anything else, the Korean Food and Drug Administration states that only the five major ingredients in a product have to be labeled. Furthermore, a label need only include intentional ingredients, not things accidentally mixed into a product through cross-contamination. So you can say goodbye to warnings like: “this product may contain traces of peanuts.” Stricter labeling regulations will be put into effect in September 2006. However, these laws will remain less stringent than those in North America and Europe. According to a source at the KFDA, labeling restrictions are similar in Japan and more lax in China and South East Asia.
    One can easily learn Korean for “I’m allergic to ____” in any phrasebook or from a Korean coworker, friend, or even the guy in the next seat on your Korean Air flight. Yet it is the cultural barrier, not the language barrier, which poses the most difficulties for a celiac.
    Korean culture revolves around the sharing of food due to food shortages during the Japanese occupation; Koreans do not ask, “How are you?” but, “Have you had your meal?” Co-workers, friends, and even the occasional stranger will offer to share food. The politest way to refuse is by saying, “Thank you, but I can’t. I’m allergic.” Also, rather than saying you are allergic to something in Korean—allerugi—it is much more effective to say you cannot have it. (see the list of useful phrases). Unfortunately, even these statements are unlikely to be fully effective when eating Korean food. Many Koreans are completely unaware that frequently-used ingredients such as tashida soup flavouring and soybean powder contain wheat.
    Most Koreans I spoke with were shocked to hear that, as a celiac, I could not eat food which had so much as touched gluten. Generally, they assume that people with food allergies are still able to consume a product with a 1-2% trace of the allergen. Food allergies, celiac disease, vegetarianism, and other kinds of diet restrictions are rare in this country and are not taken very seriously. Furthermore, according to gastroenterologist Dr. Kim of Severance Hospital in Seoul, only two people were ever diagnosed with celiac disease in Korea.
    The world of North American restaurants, where servers cater to those with food allergies, food sensitivities, and plain old picky eaters, is very far away. Koreans generally order what is on the menu without making any special requests. Even Westerners who learn enough of the Korean language to explain their diets often end up being served something they asked specifically not to have. Furthermore, Korean food is not served on personal plates: everyone at the table reaches his or her chopsticks into the various communal dishes, causing cross-contamination.
    I was at a restaurant with some Korean friends and was trying to explain my gluten-intolerance to them, when one young man told me he was so sensitive to peaches that he could not so much as touch a peach without breaking out into a rash. Five minutes later I saw him eat a dish containing peach slices. This is the attitude of Koreans to food allergies—both theirs and yours.
    The gluten-free meal which is safest and easiest to find in Korea is samgyupsal. This dish features fatty, thick slices of pork cooked over a clean grill right at your table. Just make sure that all sauces are kept off the grill. Bibimbop is a rice, vegetable, and egg dish usually served with kochujang, a red pepper paste which unfortunately contains wheat. Bibimbop can be ordered, however, with the kochujang on the side.
    Most foreigners are in Korea to work rather than visit, and having an apartment provides the extra advantage of having one’s own cooking space. There are a few of us who have managed the gluten-free diet in Korea. However, it has not been easy. If you have celiac disease or food allergies and are thinking of moving to this part of the world, I can guarantee you that it will be a monumental challenge.
    Useful Korean phrases:
    Thank you, but I can’t. I’m allergic: kamsa hamnida man, allerugi issoyo. I cannot have barley, rye, or wheat: chonun pori hago homil hago mil motmuhgeyo. Barley: pori Wheat: mil Rye: homil Bibimbop with the red pepper paste on the side: bibimbop kochujang garu Grilled Pork: samgyupsal

    What’s the Deal with Gluten Sniffing Dogs?
    Celiac.com 09/20/2018 - Some people with celiac disease experience extreme symptoms when they eat gluten. These folks adopt various strategies for navigating the world. One of those strategies involves getting a gluten-sniffing service dog.
    We’ve done a few stories on gluten-sniffing dogs over the years. Dogs like Zeus and Hawkeye are famous for helping their owners sniff out gluten before they can eat it.
    Can Gluten-Sniffing Dogs Help People with Celiac Disease?  The stories are always popular. People love the stories, and people love the dogs. After all, pretty much anyone with celiac disease who has ever read about gluten-sniffing dogs would love to have one. Who could say no to a warm, fuzzy dog that can take a sniff of your food and signal you when it contains gluten?
    The stories almost always generate plenty of feedback and more than a few questions. To answer some of those questions, we’ve decided to do an article that provides some facts about gluten-sniffing dogs.
    Here are a few factors to keep in mind about gluten-sniffing service dogs:
    Gluten-free Dog Status:
    One thing to remember is that proper gluten-sniffing dogs are professionally trained service animals, much like seeing-eye dogs or hearing-ear dogs. 
    As professional service animals, the dogs must be trained and certified as service animals. The dogs may then accompany their master pretty much anywhere they go, and are available to assess all food and snacks.
    Gluten-free Dog Training:
    Proper training takes time, which equals money. Professional trainers might only train one or two dogs, and the training can take about a year. There are very few trainers for gluten-sniffing dogs, and there are also currently no official guidelines or certification.
    Gluten-free Dog Cost:
    In our recent story on the gluten-sniffing black Lab, Hawkeye, we noted that the dog cost $16,000, not including food, and vet bills. 
    Gluten-free Dog Reliability:
    Nimasensor.com notes that “[g]luten-sniffing dogs may detect gluten in amounts as small as .0025 parts per million with 95 percent to 98 percent accuracy.”
    The Mercola.com website says that Willow, a gluten-sniffing German shorthaired pointer in Michigan, can detect gluten with 95 percent to 98 percent accuracy.
