which toothpaste were you using that had gluten in it?

if you're super sensitive i'd suggest getting rid of anything that has gluten in it. especially if it is going to be all over you face on a daily basis.

Have no idea if Crest had gluten in it or not. When I was told in December that I have Celiac Disease I found this site and read alot so I changed my toothpaste to Colgate as suggested.....was just wondering about the make up as I do not have any skin issues and wasn't sure if still using my same lip stuff was something I should be concerned about. There is just so much information to this and I know how helpful everyone here is...sorry for sounding dumb I still am reading alot.

Kiki,

Crest is gluten-free--it's what I use.

Lip products always need to be gluten-free--it's impossible not to ingest a bit of it. As for your other makeup, if you're not having any problems then it's probably fine to keep using whatever it is you're using. If you begin to get unexplained symptoms, you may want to try switching to gluten-free cosmetics. I choose to use gluten-free haircare and cosmetics since I'm very sensitive, and if I get a trace in the corner of my mouth I will react. It's an individual thing.

I'd say change your lipstick and lipbalm for sure and your mascara if you're prone to touching your eyes. Burt Bee's and Avon are great and affordable. I have one lip balm left from Burt Bee's that doesn't have soy in it and I'm savoring it (I can't do soy). Covergirl mascara is gluten-free.

I'm in the process of changing all of my cosmetics to gluten-free. But, WHERE DO I FIND THEM? Is there one company out there that makes all gluten-free stuff? And, what about shampoo? HELP! :o

Bare Minerals is what I use and they are gluten free except the 100% natural lip gloss or lipstick. The BUXOM lip gloss if gluten free and I love it. I use the line b/c except for the exception it is gluten free and I don't have to think about it! Sephora, ULTA or professional hair salons carry them!

Hair care, govanni is great! some cheaper products are suave and pantene! They will distinctly label if it contains wheat. If you like all natural or sensitive skin products go for Burt's Bees or California Baby(found at target baby section).

I would go gluten free on your face! But I am more conservative, I don't want to worry about my foundation getting into my eyes or mouth or hands and contamination. In my opinion, the skin is still an organ and I do not believe they have been able to 100% prove you can not get gluten ingestion. But at the very least face lotion, lips, and mascara are needed!

It's pretty conclusive that gluten is not absorbed through the skin. If it were, there would be many sick Celiacs out there, not recovering. All of the medical papers and books I have read, including those by Peter Green, emphatically state you do not have to use gluten-free products topically unless you have an allergy to gluten, which would affect the skin. It's a no-brainer regarding the lips and the use of eye drops but face creams or make-up are optional for most.

Medications that are applied topically are formulated to be absorbed as it doesn't happen on it's own for many of them. I do not screen anything expect eye drops and lip products. There is no way I could have brought my antibody levels down to 1 if gluten was absorbed through the skin. That was proof enough for me. This diet is hard enough for some people to embrace and I think they should be getting the correct information on it to make it as easy as possible.

Gemini,

The only thing I would add is that hand lotions or things like that should also be checked. If you eat with your hands that have gluten on them from lotion that could pose a problem for some. Otherwise I agree with you, I didn't change anything that doesn't go in my mouth. I don't plan on eating my shampoo so feel pretty comfortable using anything I want. I feel for those that have DH as it would be even more challenging than just watching what you eat.
