Burts Bees Lip Products

Recommended Posts

I've been trying to find a gluten free lipstick for my daughter. I read an old post on here that had a list of Burt's Bees products that are gluten free. I spoke with a customer service rep at Burt's Bees today to confirm that their Lip Shimmer product was gluten free. She told me that they will not guarantee that ANY of their lip products are gluten free because they cannot guarantee that their suppliers are not using gluten. I'm glad I called before letting my daughter use this product!

Burt's Bees is under new ownership.

That said, the "we cannot guarantee" disclaimer is fast becoming universal because, like it or not, it is the truth. All of these manufacturers buy ingredients from outside sources and none of them are willing to accept legal liability for a possible error by a supplier.

Unfortunately, things have changed at Burt's Bees. They used to be very gluten aware and had great customer service.

Although pricy, I use Afterglow lip products. All gluten-free and even made in a gluten-free facility.

Yikes! I've been using their lip products for some time now...sounds like I need to throw them out? If they can't be more clear about whether or not there is gluten in these products, I don't trust them. But it seems like there are a lot of threads about BB and they have conflicting opinions as to whether the lip products are safe or not. However, just about all the products reviewed in the forums have many different opinions as to whether they are safe.
