Cosmetics-shampoos, Etc

Recommended Posts

Thanks to all of you for your food help, esp. Karen. Graduating on to Cosmetics, Shampoos, Deod's?

Someone told me that Chapstick is not gluten-free - pray not. I have one in every pocket and several show up in the washing machine. Perfume, please not!!!

Could anyone start me off on US grocery products, don't have specialty stores in town of 6,000.

Shampoo, blush, lipstick, CHAPSTICk, face/body lotion (lubriderm?) I look for contents and did not recognize anything other than alcohol. Is that the bad guy?

Crest Toothpaste?. Those are my basics to start with.

Has anyone tried "Origins", perfume, creams and make-up. Have not called them as of yet.

A starter list would be welcomming. Thanks for your time - Lisa

(Name showing up alot lately, sick of me yet :).

No, not sick of you at all! At first this celiac disease thing is scary, and living in a small town can make you feel isolated with this rather confusing disease. (Did you figure out your post-oyster attack) Anyhow, I haven't ever had problems with Crest. I would steer clear of soothing lotions that contain oatmeal or cleansers with gritty stuff in them. And then read labels, of course. Alchohol isn't the bad guy. It's when gluten containing products are used as fillers and extenders. Like my CoverGirl blush. The second product was kernal flour. What kind of kernal flour? Well, underneath in French it is listed as farine. Well, that translates into farina. The dictionary defines farina as meal made from grains, which means anything which means there's a very good possibility that the blush is NOT gluten-free. So I'll be pale until I can replace the my new now offlimits blush. GRRR! But keep asking away! How else are you going to learn? :)

Haven't been sick like that in sooo long. I do think that with a compromised system the off season oyster were not a good choice or the bar switched my choice (my new choice ) of drink. We are all locals and Canadian Club and 7 have always been my choice for years. Now it is Seagrams-7. This was passed on by someone on the site. It took two days and nights to recover and still have soreness. I also have a "large hiatal hernia" and symptoms are confusing to me. Doing my best to be gluten-free. Getting to be a good club here. Thanks for remembering!!

Chemist daughter says no Tylenol as binders are gluten. SO......headaches what do we do with what does not upset the intesties.

Just simple make-up, but gotta have the chapstick.........she says no.

Any subs.? Still looking for a basic start on toiletries....

(PS.. I spell like celiac3270 is dumb)....he's not, and I don't. Lisa

Crest toothpaste is fine.

Pretty much every cosmetic could have gluten so you need to check.

I use mainly Bare Escentuals makeup because the whole line is gluten free.

If you got the Delphi List alot of products can be checked on there.

For shampoo, hairspray, conditioner, bar soap...I use Dove...they will clearly list gluten in the form of wheat,rye,barley,oats on the label

Some Maybelline eye shadows are gluten free but some are not.

CoverGirl Continuous Color lipstick is gluten free.

Alot of Burt's Bees products are gluten free and they have chapstick and lip balm you can use.

Neutrogena has a gluten free list if you would like I can post it here or send it to you via email.

I called Clairol on Friday, all of their products contain gluten. She suggested that I go to a Health Food Store and buy a Henna rinse. Has anyone ever tried that on gray, mostly flat hair?

I thought that gluten molecules are too small to ingest through the skin.  Why would shampoo need to be gluten-free, unless you're drinking it or eating your hair?

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

I wondered about this too at first. Others on this board mentioned that sometimes shampoo can get into your mouth while showering. I thought it wasnt too likely but one day w/out thinking about it I realized that the shampoo DID get into my mouth....and I'm sure it wasnt a one time thing. Also I guess having gluten in any of your hair products will result in having gluten on your hands. If your like me that can be a problem cuz I've discovered I often touch my lips or mouth....not to mention touching my food before I eat it. :rolleyes:

I guess you can never be too careful. I got really sick from wearing lotion that contained wheat germ oil.

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

Shampoo easily can get into your mouth when washing your hair.

If you have gluten in your hair, touch your hair subconsciously then touch your food then there could be traces.

If you wash your hands with soap that contains gluten then go prepare your food that is another way for it to get traces into you.

Lipsticks are obvious.

I think that products you use around your face and stuff you put on your hands(lotions&nailpolish) need to be gluten free...just way too much of a chance to get into the mouth in some way, shape, or form

Gluten can't get through the skin unless you have an open cut or something...its the problem of them getting into your mouth which can cause a problem(I was glutened quite a bit before I switched products-even that little bit caused me sooo many problems)

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

If I use hair products containing wheat then my scalp will itch like crazy. I don't have DH anywhere. One time when I was getting color applied my scalp started to burn and the beautician had to rinse it off right away. I haven't colored my hair since. Luckily my gray hair is not so bad, I'll just have to live with it.

I will email (and call) Chapstick and Tylenol. I had heard that both were gluten-free, and I think that list was originally on the celiac.com website. I know that Colgate is gluten free (I had emailed the company that makes that, checking about other products). I use Burt Bee's lip glosses and they seem fine.

Also, about the gluten-free shampoo/lotions - I used to get headaches very frequently and, running out of ideas, I cut out those items with wheat in them. Seemed to have worked.

Will keep you all posted on Chapstick and Tylenol.

What may interest some of you though is that Lactaid is not quarenteed to be gluten-free. I had emailed them back when I was still eating dairy (have since given up). I will copy and paste the email below (please note: I had specifically asked them about lactaid in the pill form and this was their response).

Thanks for contacting us again.

LACTAID Milk does not contain gluten.

This includes:

LACTAID Calcium Fortified Milk

LACTAID Chocolate Milk

For the remainder of McNeil's products:

Glutens are naturally-occurring proteins found in grains such as wheat, rye, barley, and oats, but are not found in corn. The primary source of starch in our formulations is corn. Relatively small amounts of other materials used in our formulations may contain starch from other sources (e.g. potato, rice).

We are not aware of published reports associating the use of our products with a worsening of symptoms in patients with celiac disease.

We value hearing from our consumers. Please feel free to call us with any additional comments or questions on our toll-free number 1-800-522-8243 Monday through Friday from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM, Eastern Time. You may also access our website at www.lactaid.com for answers to frequently asked questions, recipes and on-line ordering.

Pat

Consumer Affairs Representative

Consumer Affairs

Avalon Naturals (August 2005):

Our vegetable-based formulations come from a variety of sources and combinations of derivatives. Therefore, we cannot specifically guarantee that any of our products are gluten-free. We regret being unable to accommodate your request.

Dial (August 2005):

In 1994 the National Labeling Education Act required all food manufacturers to list the complete ingredients and nutritional contents on the product label. The figures are accurate estimates of the contents in the container and indicate carbohydrates, proteins, fats and calories as required by the NLEA law. The nutritional values are calculated figures based on the ingredients in each product.

The values on the product labels may vary slightly because labels are changed to reflect manufacturing variations and formulation changes.

Unfortuately, due to the many product and supply resources used to produce our products, we are unable to maintain a list of gluten-free products.

The Dial Corporation

Me again, hope this info helps someone!!

Do any of you have a reaction to topical gluten exposure? The chapstick threads got me thinking. Sometimes when I use a new lipstick or lip balm I break out in an itchy rash on my mouth. At first I thought they were cold sores but they're not. I guess they could be hives. Anyway, I don't have any skin reactions to gluten when I eat it so I don't think it's DH. Its strange though how I can use chapstick, khiels, and burts bees with no problems but not blistex.

Any thoughts?
