  1. I just wanted to mention a mineral makeup that is all gluten free. Monave is the brand. It has a more natural look then Bare escentuals with a little less shimmer in the powder foundations and setting powders. The website is clear to the concerned reader and has the ingredients list http://www.monave.com/catalog/cosmetics/Cosmetics-100-1.html Here is what they say about their makeup being gluten free< Today, I'm addressing a frequent question that we receive here at Monave: Is our makeup gluten-free? Our skin care and makeup is 99% gluten free with the exception of our Concealer Cream Foundation and Unscented Emollient.They have Vitamin E which was derived from wheat germ oil. What is gluten allergy or celiac disease? It is an auto-immune disease of the intestines, scarring of the lining, caused by gluten. Gluten is found in wheat , rye, malt, oats and barley. The symptoms are wide ranging, from indigestion, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS),diarrhea to anemia, depression and if left untreated cancer. In the U.S. 1 in 133 people have gluten allergies.Maintainig a gluten free diet and using gluten free products are essential as continued exposure is detrimental. Common gluten free foods are alternative flours ( rice, soy , potato and tapioca), corn, beans and flour to name a few. For additional information visit www.celiac.com or www.aboutallergies.com . Recently it seems many women are inquiring on this issue and complaining of irritation to the skin after using their make up.Topically gluten allergy can affect the skin as it is the largest organ and absorbs anything into your body's system readily.Here is a blog that was recently started by Erika Krull, who's husband is a celiac and concerned about what make up she was using.

  2. I just tried the bora bora bars and had a reaction to the cinnamon one with OATS, which is a big no no with me. I think it's missed labeled on that one.
