foundation

powder

eyeshadow

eyeliner

mascara

lipstick

deodorant

toothpaste

shampoo

face scrub

hair dye

hand lotion

Well, I haven't gutted my cosmetics yet but have worked in some of the others.

Shampoo - JR Ligget's

Lotion - Vanicream

Body wash - Dove (but I don't like it, has a scent)

Face wash - superfine sugar and brown rice flour. SERIOUSLY.

face lotions/potions - Devita

I use natural cosmetics but dont think they contain wheat. Had to ditch my henna color (Logona) to Light Mountain. I need a different one because I'm not a fan of Light Mountain.

Deodorant is the worst for me since my DH is under my arms. Ugh.

Cosmetics: All of this brand's products are gluten free and natural, many of them organic. I think I read somewhere that the founder has Celiac and that's why she created this brand. There are a TON of different options on this site to choose from.

I was using Crest Pro Health toothpaste and Crest 3D whitening mouthwash, and I got an email back today saying that they were not gluten free...

Would you please post the exact question that you asked, and the exact reply that you were given. "Not gluten-free" is often a legal disclaimer when the product is in fact gluten-free, but they do not test for possible contamination of the ingredients.

I had a spectacular allergic reaction to one of those supposedly allergy friendly, herbal deodorants I tried using recently, after I was getting repeated failures from the "new and improved" brand I was using, which would fail after a few hours... and I don't actually sweat that much. Since I was now almost desperate, after washing it off and skipping a day, I tried just applying some baking soda under my arms while they were still damp. Other than it stung a bit at first on the rash, it worked better than any of these other brands I had tried, and the rash cleared up. I've been using it now for about month, and may not bother to try to find something else, because it's still holding when I'm outside in hot (like over 95

Thanks for the tip. I think I've been to that site. I actually used apple cider on my pits this am-and it does kill b.o. Don't know if it will last-burned a tad on my DH but I can dilute it next time.

foundation --haven't found one yet that I can use

powder --same as foundation

eyeshadow --never wore it before going gluten-free

eyeliner --never used

mascara --never used

lipstick --Don't use but I do put olive oil or coocnut oil on my lips when they get too dry.

deodorant --Dove unscented is the only one I can use

toothpaste --Crest, Colgate or Aquafresh--only thing I'm not picky about since all are gluten-free

shampoo --Garnier Frutis OR Loreal Vive Pro in the pink bottle. I have to rotate my shampoos and conditiors every month of they stop working for me so I alternate between these two brands. I have also used Head and Shoulders in a pinch (my husband uses it so it's there if I run out of my shampoo).

conditioner-- same as shampoo.

body wash\soap -- Ivory bar soap or Dial natural bar soap (forget the exact name of the Dial but it's one with no added dyes or scents).

face scrub--Don't use.

hair dye-- Don't use

hand lotion-- Olive oil or coonut oil if

hanp soap\soft soap at the sink-- Softsoap unscented clear hand soap or Dawn dish soap at the kitchen sink

I actually deleted it after I got it, I usually do to save space... But basicly I asked if either the Crest Pro Health Toothpastes or mouthwashs had any gluten or wheat in them. They said about the toothpaste the ingredients used was gluten free but processed near a place that processes wheat. And the mouthwashs have traces of gluten in them.

Sorry, I know not an official answer, next time I won't delete the info I get. I am just new to this website and sharing things, I got use to just looking it up for myself and deleting it.

You don't want to see my primary email inbox then. It contains over 10,000 items going back over ten years. And, yes, I do delete a lot of stuff, otherwise it would be twice that size. :ph34r:

I can attest to the fact that Milk of Magnesia works! I have been using it for the past two weeks, and it works BETTER than any deodorant or anti-perspirant I have ever tried. It's a little messy, but not that bad - what I did was poke a hole in the aluminum seal under the cap, and I took a powder puff out of a package of face powder that I had never used and apply it with that. I'm going to see about finding (or making) a roll-on container. It is amazing how well it works. With normal deodorant/anti-perspirants, after a while on a hot day, I can smell a little bit of me and a lot of the scent of the product. With MoM, there is absolutely no odor at all, and no soggy underarms. I LOVE IT!
