Make Up And Underarm Deodorant

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi so i am really new to this gluten free, dairy free, egg free diet that i have just been diagnosed with (oh yeah i also have leaky gut syndrome). I feel so overwhelmed and i feel so trapped and it sucks!.. I have been researching a lot about my diet and made huge changes and now i am searching to see what kind of make up is safe to use and to see if anyone knows about the make up line called "prescriptives" its all mineral base, but i am still not sure if its safe to use. The ingredients don't say that they contain gluten, so i think its safe to use. In addition, i was wondering if anyone uses the deodorant Secret and if its okay to use? I don't know if i have to go this far, because my doctor only told me to go on a gluten free diet, but i rather be safe than sorry.

Unless you have a topical allergy to an ingredient in these products, or intend on eating them :P , you do not have to screen topical products for gluten. Your doctor is correct, it's what goes into your mouth that is the issue. The only exceptions would be for lipstick/lip balm and eye drops because eye drops will trickle down the back of your throat after they go into your eyes and could potentially end up in your gut.

My daughter uses Secret, no problem. We keep her personal products gluten-free. The only deoderant I've found gluten in is Ban. There's barley in it, of all things. Whooda thunk.

Greattt!! im so excited! ya i think i do need to check out the lipsticks i am using. But whoa what a relief. I have just read other peoples comments on this website and a lot of them are going gluten free with skin products, make up etc.. So i got kind of worried. :unsure:

That's not always true. Eye makeup can get into your eyes and cause reactions (confirmed by an eye specialist). I use zuzu luxe brand make up and have had no more problems!

.......IF, you have a topical allergy to gluten, as Gemini has stated previously. Celiac, specifically, reacts to the autoimmune reaction in the small intestines, generally ingested through the mouth. Gluten can not penetrate the skin into the digestive system.

So, if you're not crying your makeup into your mouth or ingesting your mascara.......

ohhh ok, thanks for the info, because i wore some make up yesterday and i have already checked to see if they are gluten free and they said yes but cross contamination can be possible. well i got really sick yesterday and it was after i put my make up on, so i dont know if it was just a bad day or the make up. i guess not the make up, i am going to check my mac lipsticks though.

Celiac is not just a gut disease it is an autoimmune disease. Gluten can cross the mucosal tissues and cause an antibody reaction as your doctor stated. It is a matter of personal choice whether to eliminate it from toiletries. I personally don't use gluten containing cosmetics, shampoos or conditioners. I feel why risk it when safe gluten free alternatives are available.
