Greetings,

I am new to Celiac Biz. I have been gluten-free for about 2 1/2 weeks. I am also allergic to almonds. I was wondering anyone could suggest some great gluten-free personal care products.

I am Italian, have long curly hair. If anyone could suggest a gluten-free detangler or miracle conditioner, ANTI_FRIZZ, as well as hair dyes. I have never had reactions to my hair care products until I gave up Gluten. I am not sure what is going on, but am having a really bad hair day! I have contacted Garnier and they have told me that their products are gluten-free, they were certain about the their new line of products though. I usuallly use Redkin and that is clearly not working out for me. My head itches so bad! YIKES! I was also using treseme.

My dermatologist told me that I should not be having any reactions to my products and thinks that I may be allergic to more than gluten, oh joy!

Any help would be greatly appreciated, anything from lotions, soaps, PERFUMES, make-up, dryer sheets, cleaning products. ANYTHING!

Does anyone know if Victoria Secret perfumes and lotions are gluten-free.

Does anyone know any stores in NH or internet sites, mail order, where I would be able to order gluten-free products?

Many thanks

Sara

Hi I read your post and I can tell you that Dove products are safe, make up you have to read which is pain, softsoap is safe,I was told that most of Burts Bees products are safe they have a shampoo and conditioner w/ grapefruit, Dawn dishsoap is ok, and I emailed Victoria Secret about there products. I will let you know when I hear something. As far as stores.....http://www.kinnikinnick.com for breads that taste good or gluten free.com. for other foods. I do not know what stores you have by you look to see if you have a Whole Foods or a Trader Joe's. This is a life changing thing and I'm not going to lie to you its hard. I have been gluten free for almost 5 months and I just recently found out I am dairy intolerant which does and can happen after you are gluten-free. I will let you know about the VS products. Hope I helped a little?

I have not been able to find any dryer sheets that do not contain gluten. If anyone knows of one, please post it.

I use the Dove shampoo, since I gave up my treasured Pantene products. I don't think that Treseme is gluten-free. As for make-up and moisturizers, Nutregena is usually pretty good, but you have to read the labels. You may need to contact the comapny directly to ask about a specific ingrediant.

Hope this helps!

Worriedwife,

If you have a Wegman's near you, their "Free of Dyes and Perfumes" fabric softener sheets are gluten-free. I verified that via email.

Definately contact Neutrogena about any product you're interested in. There's a gluten-free list floating around, but I've spoken to that company on several occasions, and there are products on that list that shouldn't be. I use their Foaming Face Cleanser and the SPF 15 Face Moisture--those are gluten-free for sure.

Dove will clearly list any gluten on the label, and Garnier has many gluten-free products--you can call them to verify, they are very nice. I use their Smoothing Milk for my hair and love it.

In addition to the products already mentioned Giovanni organic hair products are gluten-free, or were the last I checked. I use the 50/50 shampoo and the smooth as silk conditioner. They also have a serum that is for curly hair that is antifrizz and I had good luck with it. I also will use pure coconut oil, a very light amount if my hair seems real dry. Suave is another company that will clearly label gluten ingredients according to their rep. I use a couple of their lotions with good results.

Many thanks. The dairy thinks doesn't sound like much fun and I will be in big trouble, because I have lived on Ice Cream and cheese for the past three weeks. I need to meet with a nutritionist next week.

You helped a lot.

Funny, I should come across this topic! I can help with the Victoria's Secret question. They said that their Garden Collection, (Love Spell, Amber Romance, Pure Seduction, Pear Glace, Strawberries and Champagne, My Desire, etc.) is gluten-free...but they can't guarantee that any of their other products are. I actually work at VS and I was checking the labels of all our beauty products today and it looks like most of the Insatiable shower gel/shampoos have gluten in them, (the company releases 3 new scents about every 4 months-some scents include Key Lime Lust, Carmel Kiss, Chocolate Covered Berries, etc.) but the lotions look okay. I'm just learning how to read beauty product labels, so don't quote me....jeez, it took long enough to read FOOD labels! :P I think the haircare is also out of the question. I'm not quite sure about the Dream Angels collection, (Heavenly, Desire, Divine, Halo) because I don't wear those fragrances, but if you call HR they are very accomodating and nice. I hope this helps some of you out!

I was looking for some men's skin care products recently and came across a web store that actually has a gluten-free list of skin/body care products. www.skin-spa.com/glutenfree.htm has stuff for men and women. My wife was excited about this because she contacted them and is getting some free samples to try. They seem knowledgeable. I think the owner has celiac disease.

I have been gluten free for 6 months now but have had difficulty with my skin and scalp when it comes to hair care products, lotions, makeup etc. When I use products with gluten in them, I breakout in cyst like lesions on my chest, back, and face, itchy scalp and pustules. It has taken months for the cysts to go away and I'm not sure if they will leave any scars. Some of the blog/forums I read mentioned that it is not likely that gluten would be absorbed into the skin because the molecules are too big. Well that is not true for me and it may not be true for you either. Our skin absorbs 90% of what we place on it!

I just wanted to post some gluten free products that I have been using without any skin or scalp reactions.

Haircare:

Max Green Alchemy Scalp Rescue Shampoo and Conditioner (online)

Max Green Alchemy Texture Paste

Paul Mitchell Soft Spray Hair Spray

Face Products:

Rhonda Allison glycolic wash

Rhonda Allison Impure face mask

Rhonda Allison Pumice Wash

Skin Ceuticals Serums

Neocutis moisturizers and sunblock

Be careful of pumpkin products by Rhonda Allison...I had a skin reaction to them even though they do not have gluten in them.

Mascara:

NARS mascara (Sephora)

Make up:

Bare Escentuals foundation, eye shadows (Full list of gluten free products on their website)

Pangea Organics lip balm

Soaps:

Pangea Organics body bar soap

Pangea Organics hand soap

Tom's of Maine bar soap (All of Tom's of Maine products are gluten free)

Body oils and lotions:

Pangea Organics body oil (All of Pangea organics is gluten free)

Pangea Organics body lotion

Lubriderm lotion with 30 SPF sunscreen

Coppertone sunblock

Deodorant:

Secret Clinical protection

Toothpaste:

Tom's of Maine

Hope this list helps get you started on some gluten free products. The grocery guide also has some gluten free hair care and skin care products.

Hi!

I am also Celiac with Curly Hair! I have used Kinky Curly products on my hair since I went gluten free a year and a half ago. I LOVE their products! You can get them at Whole foods or Target, or online at their website: Kinky Curly. The great thing is that they smell fantastic too! I usually shampoo and apply a small amount of the conditioner which I leave in. I follow with the curling custard and finger curl my hair before letting it air dry. I may also use some of the Aubrey Natural Misst hairspray to finish. Hope this helps!

Naturally Curly.com has a link to wheat/gluten free products here: Naturally Curly

BTW, if you have dry scalp along with your curly hair (which is common-you'll have an itchy scalp and may see white flakes) you can deep condition your scalp by massaging about 1 oz of coconut oil into your scalp/hair and leaving it on your head (I wrap my head with a towel) for about 30 minutes before shampooing. You can then follow up with an Apple-Cider vinegar rinse (2T apple-cider vinegar to one cup water) to clarify and and shine. It's worked wonders for me and helped calm the itchies that I can get as a result of dryness.

    • KathleenH, I swear by MatteosPizza and they make National Delivery. I have been known to buy them by the dozen. https://www.matteospizza.com/ BellaMonica's is not a bad corn based crust.  By not bad I mean "suprisingly good" that can be bought at most grocery stores. Here is there ZIP locator page to see if they are carried in your local area. http://glutenfreepizza.typepad.com/gluten-free-pizza/where-to-find-bella-monica.html I hope this is helpful. posterboy,  
    • Hey all--have Hashimoto's and am being worked up for epigastric discomfort and IBS like symptoms---   My blood work had an IgA within the lower end of normal range, negative TTG, but weakly positive DGP.   My endoscopy showed a "nodular" duodenum with the biopsy stating there was "reactive lymphoid hyperplasia"...   I have a follow-up with the GI in 3 weeks.   Wondering about any help?
    • DH wasn't linked to celiacs until 1967 from my research...
    • I was at a used book sale yesterday and happened to see an old dermatological textbook.  Of course the first thing I looked up was dh just to see what it had to say.  What I read shocked me as well as scared me half to death. The description of dh was right on, severe itching, blistering, bilateral, arms/elbows etc. but there was no mention at all of celiac, wheat, gluten or anything along that line.  The reason they gave for the cause of dh was "a manifestation of an internal cancer," and later it said it results from cancer, usually cancer of the ovaries or one other that I can't remember.  Being a hypochondriac, this was about enough to put me into cardiac arrest. I looked at the publication date and it was printed in 1963 which really isn't all that far back.  Has anyone else ever heard of this?? I thought by 1963 they were quite certain that dh was a form of celiac or did it come way after that? Sorry if I'm freaking anyone out by asking this.  That's not my intent at all, but since cancer is one of my biggest fears I found this rather unsettling.
    • Feeneyja, This will be a little long but I will  try to be brief as possible. See this discussion thread that talks about how Pellagra is often diagnosed as other disease's today because doctor's rarely recognize it today in a clinical setting. Pellagra's is described as the 3 D's if you don't count the 4th D of death if it goes long enough and is not diagnosed in a timely manner. Dementia (Neurological) Digestive (GI problems), Dermatitis issues (Ezcema, Psorsias, Acne etc.) According to mdguidelines website http://www.mdguidelines.com/pellagra indicates that quoting “The diagnosis of pellagra is straightforward when the classic rash is present but may be elusive if there are only gastrointestinal and/or neurological manifestations.” And why I believe in many cases Pellagra goes undiagnosed today.  Because doctor's have forgotten how it presents. A longer researcher article about the neurological presentations of pellagra mention the many ways a Niacin deficiency can present itself. Here is the link https://www.hindawi.com/journals/cggr/2012/302875/ and I will quote some of the neurological/dementia related symptom's of an undiagnosed pellagra patient. "Mental symptoms were wider than dementia, in that depression, fatigue, psychomotor retardation, mania, obsessions, and a whole range of psychoses with auditory and visual hallucinations were well described, along with personality change and sociopathic and drug and alcohol addictive behaviours. Panic disorders were seen as was a general inability to deal with physical or mental stress. Poor brain development such as hydrocephalus or cerebral palsy was also common. Acute delirium or even coma occurred, with some patients having myoclonus and other extrapyramidal signs reminiscent of the spongiform encephalopathies. The dementias of pellagra included features akin to Lewy body, Alzheimer’s, frontotemporal, vascular, and prion diseases. Parkinsonism was also common and a festinant gait was first described in pellagrins. Tremors of various descriptions, including asymmetric rest tremors, were noted and some patients had typical paralysis agitans. Pellagrins had a characteristic expressionless facies, so some signs of parkinsonism were present in most cases. Many features of pellagra closely resemble the nonmotor aspects of PD. The neurological manifestation did not stop there because other degenerative conditions, such as an amyotrophic lateral sclerosis-like picture, were described, with fasciculation of the tongue and upper and lower motor neuron signs. Cerebellar syndromes occurred and vertigo was frequent. Headaches, sensory and pain syndromes, epilepsy, and involuntary movements were noted as well as sleep disturbances. Cord lesions were also seen, as was optic atrophy, so there were multiple sclerosis (MS), like variants." It is me again. You can see the neurological symptom's of Pellagra are severe and wide ranging. Taking Niacinamide 3/day for 6 months can alleviate many of these symptom's if your daughter has subclinical pellagra and the doctor's don't know to look for it. I had deep depression for many, many years and I shudder to think now that only a Vitamin could of helped me 30+ years ago and the doctor's didn't know to look for it. Shoot it isn't just Niacin.  All B-Vitamin's help your stress levels.  IF you have stress B-Vitamins can help your stress levels. I take Folic Acid for Blood pressure problems and it keeps my BP with in a normal range. A article on celac.com discussed this topic in detail a few months ago. https://www.celiac.com/articles/24658/1/A-Differential-Diagnosis-How-Pellagra-Can-be-Confused-with-Celiac-Disease/Page1.html I hope it is helpful.  Good luck on your continued journey. If you have never heard of Pellagra you are not alone. Dr. Heaney discusses why this is so in his online article Pellagra and the 4 D's. http://blogs.creighton.edu/heaney/2013/11/18/pellagra-and-the-four-ds/ If you don't have time to read the whole hindawi article I also suggest this shorter but informative blog about why a Niacin deficiency can cause dementia related conditions. https://pellagradisease.wordpress.com/ Then decide for yourself and your daughter's sake to decide whether to take Niacinamide or not to see if it helps the D's symptom's she is experiencing (Digestive, Dementia etc.) The International Journal of Celiac Disease makes note of this in their research that Pellagra could be contributing to symptom's being diagnosed as Celiac disease today instead of a possible (co-morbid) Pellagra that causes the same symptom's. When they discuss how Pellagra and Celiac disease are related (Co-Morbid) in a Celiac diagnosis are surprised to find that in 58% of Celiac's -- can also be diagnosed with Pellagra. See this link http://pubs.sciepub.com/ijcd/3/1/6/ Quoting 3. Pellagra and celiac disease "The two diseases can be connected in two aspects. 58% of pellagra patients were shown to have malabsorption and many had intestinal pathology on biopsies [36, 37]. Alternatively, Pellagra was described in celiac disease [38]. The skin manifestations in pellagra might have some additional etiologies, since multiple nutrient deficiencies are at the origin of the cutaneous manifestations in celiac disease. The following nutritional deficiencies inducing skin rashes, were describe in celiac disease: Zinc, Iron, Vitamin A, E, B12, niacin, folate, selenium and essential fatty acids [39, 40]." If one is being diagnosed incorrectly the other co-morbid conditions can continue to cause Celiac like symptom's. But if the majority of those who have been diagnosed as Celiac could be helped by taking Niacinamide I see no you reason you shouldn't try it. Or at least research it some more. Again good luck on your continued journey. 2 Timothy 2: 7 “Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things” this included. Posterboy by the grace of God,
