Glutened By Nailpolish

Recommended Posts

Believe it or not.. nailpolish was the culprit.

I have a not very good habit of trying to fix accidentally smudged spots on my nails by licking them.. As much as this is embarrassing to admit I thought I'd share it anyway as a warning.

Which products do you use which you know are gluten free? I'm specially curious in terms of lip gloss.. haven't dared to put any since I started.


Self diagnosed January 2012, and on elimination, low-salicylate & low-iodine diet.

Also G6PD

I use Blistex Medicated Lip Balm (in the blue-green tube) and have no problem with it. I know others use Chap Stick. There are obviously more but I have no experience with them.

Instead of lipgloss I just use plain old vaseline. I react to chapstick as does my boyfriend. There are some cosmetic lines that are completely gluten free, and several that are partially gluten free. I suggest you use the Search engine.

For myself I have to be particularly careful since I am also salicylate sensitive, so most dyes are out.

So more than likely you can thank your lucky stars you aren't as sensitive to colorants as I am and are instead just needing things that are gluten free. At least now I know why I was never very comfortable with cosmetics. As an artist i have to use nitrile or vinyl cotton flocked gloves when I paint and be careful not to fling it everywhere. LOL!


Diagnosed celiac sprue as infant: failure to thrive & pneumonia-back on grains age 4. Began herbs 1971 combating chronic kidney disease/general ill health 1973. Avoid wheat family and "allergens" by 1980. Late 80's doc. diagnosed candida: cave-man diet. Diagnosed degraded myelin sheath 2006; need co-enzyme B vitamins. Discovered celiac fall 2007; finally told diagnosis as infant. Recently found I am salicylic acid intolerant. Ironically can't tolerate most herbs now. Can now eat brown rice & other gluten-free grains (except corn) & even maple syrup & now homeopathic medicine works! Am still exploring the shape of this elephant but I've made progress!

I'm not big on make-up except for lipgloss and lipstick -- it has always been my one splurge. I pitched everything upon my diagnosis and went without until I found Red Apple Lipstick. I have been using their stuff with no problem. They are gluten free, paraben free, a bunch of other stuff free! I was not keen on ordering lipstick online since I've always liked to see it in the past but I gave it a try and I haven't been sorry. I really love the stuff. They've also recently introduced a balm that is very nice -- I bought three and have one at home and one in my purse and a backup because I just know I'm going to loose the one in my purse (it has happened in the past!) I've also used the Neutrogena Naturals lipbalm with no problems.
