Updates From Revlon & Wet 'n Wild

Recommended Posts

I've been contacting different cosmetic and skincare type companies for information on their gluten-free status — I made a thread about Eucerin a few days ago — and I'll share what I find in case anyone is doing a search. If you are finding this information through a search and some time has passed, it's best to verify this information with the company.

First, the reply I got from Revlon (February 23, 2011):

Dear Ms. XXX:

Thank you for your recent comments from the Revlon website and your interest in our products.

Unfortunately, because of the way cosmetic ingredients are made and transported, we cannot guarantee that a product is gluten-free.

If we can be of further assistance, please call our Consumer Information Center toll-free at 1-800-473-8566. Our hours of operation are Monday through Friday, 8:00 AM until 6:00 PM EST. Any of our representatives will be glad to assist you.

Please do not reply to this e-mail. Replies sent to this email address cannot be answered. If you have additional comments about this issue, please click here:

If you have comments on a separate issue, please return to our corporate website: http://www.revlon.com

Sincerely,

Mary M. Dani el

Senior Consumer Information Representative

And, second, the reply from Wet 'n Wild (February 21, 2011):

Hi XXX,

Thank you so much for your support of wet n wild!

Here is the direct statement from our R & D Department:

"We do not intentionally add any gluten or wheat flour into our products,

however, just to be on the safe side, it would be better to stay away from

any natural starch or relating protein. All wet n wild products should be

okay, but maybe keep away from: 821A-827A Natural Blend Pressed Powder,

745-749 Natural Blend Mineral Foundation, 641A Mega Protein Mascara."

Hope that helps and please feel free to contact us anytime for future

inquiries.

Thanks!

Thank you very much for this! My daughter is 12 and she's just starting to look at this sort of thing. I'm just going to be tucking this tidbit of information away so we can use it when she starts buying makeup. :-)

I think Revlons reply was a cop out. You really can not give a list of the products that don't actually contain gluten? Almost EVERYTHING has a POSSIBILITY of cross contamination and if we went by those POSSIBILITIES we would be left bare faced and anorexic!
