I'm going through all my lipsticks to find out if there's anything I can still use. I received this reply from Revlon regarding their lip products: "Unfortunately, because of the way cosmetic ingredients are made and transported, we cannot guarantee that a product is gluten-free."

Does anyone know which lip products are safe? I live in an area where I don't have access to Whole Foods or any store that might carry specialty items.

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

This sort of statement is very common among mainstream manufacturers. It is a legal disclaimer--the tip-off is the word "guarantee."

Here is what it means to me:

"We don't intentionally put any gluten in the products, but we don't test the ingredients or the finished product, so inadvertent contamination somewhere along the supply chain can happen without being detected by us."

Same here. I don't trust anything found in mainstream stores after trying each one that is reportedly gluten-free. Now, I just buy all of my cosmetics online. Googling "gluten-free cosmetics" does wonders.

I use Burt's Bees and Kiss My Face lip glosses...both were gluten free the last time I bought them.

Also, Desert Essence Organics lip glosses are gluten free.

I like the Neutrogena Naturals lip balm.

I also am a total fan of Red Apple Lipstick -- google the name and their site will come up. They have lipsticks, lip glosses and one type of balm plus they've introduced lip pencils. Their products are gluten free, paraben free, vegan, etc.

I've never had a problem with them in terms of any sort of cross contamination. Their customer service is amazing and they seem really committed to the community of consumers who want gluten-free products.
