Need Help With Gluten-Free Make-Up

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Due to a very highly positive blood test in March & a positive biopsy last week, I (believe) I have done a pretty good job at getting rid of everything with gluten and replacing everything including food, dishes, body products. However, I need some help with make-up suggestions please! I see a lot of people on here talking about buying make-up online that is very expensive... Does anyone have a list of safe gluten-free mainstream make-up that I could buy in a store like WalMart, CVS, Target, etc???!!! Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!

Thanks so much!!

Kim

I believe most Neutrogena make-up items are gluten free.

Wet & Wild nail polish sent me a note that the nail polish is gluten-free. Maybe not a big deal for toes, but definately for fingers. Cerave is a thick lotions thats really good for very dry skin & elbows, feet, etc. They told me they are gluten-free.

While not available at drug stores, Everyday Minerals are pretty reasonable and gluten-free. I just received my large mineral foundation--it was $9 and I was able to also get 3 decent sized samples of blush. (I had my choice of samples.)

Kim,

I just noticed that they have taken any mention of gluten off of their website--it used to state that their products were in fact gluten-free. I have an email out to see what is what--I suspect that nothing has changed and they are hesitant to claim gluten-free status because there is currently no legal definition of "gluten-free".

I'll keep you posted. B)

I received this email this morning--

Hello Patti,

Thank you for contacting us. The Tocopherol (Vitamin E) used in our Lip Balms and Glosses is derived from Soy. Other products that do contain the Tocopherol are the Everynight Minerals line, the Pressed Powders, and the Thymeless Concealer line.

All of our products are vegan based, free of carmine, nuts, lake dyes, fragrance, bismuth oxychloride and parabens. Our powders consist of: mica, titanium dioxide, zinc oxide and iron oxides. Our finishing powders vary and some consist of rice powder, kaolin powder and zea mays (corn powder). All of these products should work well for you. But you may also want to check a gluten list of ingredients to avoid, since everyone's skin is different. And the Product Page does have a tab with the list of ingredients which you can use for reference for when you are making a purchase. : )

Please let us know if you have any additional questions.

Thank you.

Cristy,

Everyday Minerals

Hmmm... So I'm new at this, this seems to mean they ARE gluten-free, but she won't actually say it?

I feel comfortable saying yes on this because I've been using this brand for a while now and really, I can't see where anything has changed. I've noticed in the past few months, especially, companies who used to declare products gluten-free have changed their language.

I use their foundation, blush, eye shadows, and lip products and will continue to do so unless of course they begin adding gluten--which I doubt.

Just another good reason in general to re-check ingredients/manufacturing practices from time to time since they can change. ;)

I know I have to make for sure any lotions, shampoo, and handwash are gluten-free because I still have the very bad habit of biting my nails....So my hands are always in my mouth :P

Gluten cannot be abosrbed through the skin. It has to be ingested and enter your stomach and intestine for it to do any damage. Therefore the only costmetics you need to perhaps avoid is some lipsticks that contain wheat. Also shampoo with wheat that you may swallow.
