Gluten Free Make-up

While I am mad that Almay won't email me the list of gluten free products they so obviously have right at their finger tips, they did clear up my questions (after a long wait to talk to a rep). I exclusively use Almay, so their reply made me happy...

The following are gluten free:

Concealer Stick

Lengthening Mascara

Hydracolor Lipstick

Nearly Naked Liquid Make-up :o

Nearly Naked Powder

& Revlon Super Lusterous Lipstick (they own Revlon)

Hope this helps someone! Now I can feel pretty again - not the tired-looking mother I really am.

Holly :D

I talked to someone who has Celiac and has had it for a long time and she wears the same makeup she always did and doesnt ever have a problem, she said as long as it is not ingested...which Mascara and eye liner wouldnt be. So do you all still wear regular makeup?? B/C I cannot find makeup anywhere and I need it!!!

I use all the same makeup, now that I found out it is gluten free. I am not interested in having ANY gluten entering my body on any level. I am sick of being sick! My eyes are a perfect way for gluten to enter my body. My lipstick, cover-up - can all get in my mouth. I am going to make sure I am careful. Go for the makeup you like and just call the company to double check.

Hope that helps!

I called Almay customer service several times within the past 2 days, since I learned most of my Clinique cosmetics contain either gluten or soy. They are VERY helpful and patient on the phone. I didn't want to wait for email responses and knew I'd forget to ask something in email. So I just kept calling with my questions. I also hit a local 50% off on Almay products sale at a local drug store chain. So I'm busy shopping and replacing all my Clinique products with Almay products.

I was told the extra mild liquid soap has barley extract. Infact i even read it on the bottle. I hope your using the bar soap, that is fine.

Yay! I have a tube of that Hydracolor lipstick, that I didn't know about so I haven't been using it!

I thought lipstick would be the hardest to find, but it seems like there are a lot of Gluten Free lipsticks/glosses out there.

Yes, it is the bar soap; thank you for bringing that up! I didn't realize I forgot to put in that part.

I'll have to take a look for your Clinique post. :D

I am new to this whole thing. As most of the posts on this topic are from last year, I contacted both Revlon and Neutrogena. They both told me the exact same thing. Due to the manufacturing, and handling process neither company is willing to say that any of their products are free of wheat or gluten.

:(

Too bad.

Try looking into smaller mineral makeup companies. Many of them will tell you without a doubt that their products are gluten free.

Lots of gals here rave about Everyday Minerals. I have a couple of products from them, but the bulk of my makeup comes from other mineral makeup companies.

The downside is that you can't just walk into any store to pick these up - they're almost exclusively mail/internet ordering.

If you want names of more companies, let me know!

I would love any info I could get. I am in the beauty industry so can't really get away with showing up to work au naturale. I am supposed to start the diet next week after I get the biopsy, though the symptoms and blood test say positive so I am attempting to get a head start on all this.

Any help with makeup, haircare and skincare would be much appreciated!!!!!!!!!

Thanks!! :D

Here's what I use:

Foundation: either Meow Cosmetics or Aromaleigh Cosmetics (If you Google either of these, you will find websites - don't want to risk giving you a "lame advertisement link" LOL)

Blush comes from either: Meow, Aromaleigh or About Face (Google The She Space)

Eyeshadow: Mainly from The She Space or Silk Naturals

Mascara: Honestly I just use whatever from the drugstore, I figure there's very little chance of that getting ingested ;)

Skincare: I use MyChelle Dermaceuticals, but am considering switching because MyChelle is a little expensive - but it works REALLY well for me

Haircare: I've tried a number of different products, and I like Avalon Organics, but it does have beta glucan (oats) in it. I recently purchased Dove shampoo and conditioner, and am doing ok with those

Body wash: Dr Bronner's Castille Soap (the almond one) - this stuff can be used for all kinds of things, from shampoo to laundry to washing your dog! It's been the most gentle to my skin of anything I've tried.

I know there have been several threads about gluten free personal products (shampoo, deodorant, etc) so you might do a search and see what you can find.

I have a pretty extensive list of other makeup companies, but the ones I listed are the ones I know, use and trust.

If you need more, say the word and I'll shoot you a PM. :)

Happy shopping!

I realize this post is ancient, but I'm replying because it came up when I searched for Gluten Free Makeup on Google.

For anyone else who comes across this, it absolutely does matter what you put on your face whether it's near your mouth or not. Anything that gets into your eyes can be ingested. Small particles can be washed into your sinuses and down your throat via your tear ducts. That's why you can often taste shampoo after you've gotten it into your eyes. I strongly recommend avoiding shampoo, eye makeup, foundation and anything else with gluten or known allergens or things to which your are sensitive.

Have a great day!

    • Thank you so much. 8-12 weeks! Oh my goodness, I don't think I can do that. I think going gluten-free made my body's defenses go down or something. I felt bad before, but reintroducing it was completely awful! I still feel queezy a few days later. Let's pray it just comes back positive. lol
    • Thanks for the feedback!  Gemini you're very right - surgery was a totally weird recommendation.  My current doctor treated me without hormones because my TSH levels are normal. The doctor found that my Vitamin D levels were severely low and put me on a high dose. They climbed just out of the deficient range. I am very active and frequently outdoors,  and they still only climb out of deficient If i'm on intensive VIitamin D supplementation.  -  In addition, She also suggested I  a modified lower carb diet (I'm at a healthy weight, there was no reduction in calories, just an increase in protein and fat and a reduction in carbs,  a low reduction, slightly above the recommendations for a diabetic), which the doctor recommended for PCOS.  Both of these coincided correlated with a slight reduction in the anti-thyroid antibodies and a slight reduction in nodule size. My TSH levels have remained stable, so it was incorrect to say function, really just a reduction in the level of attack (but the thyroid levels are still high).  The doctor that recommended surgery did so because "you're about to start college and you won't have time for monitoring,  it will eventually fail. If we remove it now, you can just go on Synthroid and you'll never have to deal with the levels being out of whack."  Yeah.... I was 18 then.... I'm now 27, but my Mom just went "NOPE!" and got a second opinion.  This person was fine, but all he did was monitor to make sure the TSH levels stayed ok.  They did, I just have a goiter and several nodules.  The most recent endo. I've seen, who put me on intensive Vitamin D therapy and worked with me on the diet,  felt like she was thorough (again minus completely dismissing the first celiac results. I think the D supplementation and diet were associated with a decrease (but obviously didn't and really couldn't reverse the outcome of the disease) in antibodies and nodule size because my TSH levels have yet to get out of whack. I also wonder if with fewer carbs, I ate less (thought still too much If I'm celiac) gluten, and  that could have been more a factor in the correlation.  Gemini- I'm glad that you have found a good treatment that keeps your levels where they need to be!  I also really appreciate the welcome. Update:  I have a referral to a GI specialist! I don't want to have Celiac... I love to travel, and I'm very social. I live in the US but my family is from Uruguay, South America, so I carry this Latin Cultural thing about loving to share food and seeing it as such a huge part of hospitality and community.  I know that food in social settings gets hard to navigate...But I feel a sense of relief to think that I might have an answer to other health questions and that there is a way that I can stop or at least slow damage.   
    • These can be sourced from various ingredients one being wheat. Please check with the manufacture of your products to figure out if they contain gluten or how they are made....and yes gluten in your makeup, and especially lotion, shower gel, etc is a huge issues. Consider this, gluten contamination can happen from gluten protein residue. How often would you touch your arms, hair, etc or use your hands and touch your food, plate, fork, spoon before putting it in your mouth? Do you bite your nails, sometimes pick up a mint or gum? Hate to say it this way but if you use gluten containing stuff like that shit will happen with cross contamination. Consider changing over to a dedicated gluten-free version of hygiene products and save your self the drama. I use EO products, The Seaweed Co, Savvy Naturals, Hugo Naturals, and Vaseline products products without issues personally.       
    • I had an enlarged thyroid, but no nodules. Dr felt it and ultrasound confirmed. I had so many symptoms of hypothyroid- weight gain, fatigue, hoarse voice-couldn't yell or sing or swallow (still can't swallow, but mostly at the bottom end. Used to not be able to get it past my neck, either) brain fog so that I couldn't form a complete sentence or respond with any timeliness, cold all the time, etc. Dr was in his 70's and old school. He didn't do any further blood tests or anything. Just said to take iodine. So, I started taking iodine. By the next year, different dr, all my thyroid tests came back normal, it wasn't enlarged anymore and most of my symptoms were very much improved. Read "Iodine: Why you need it and can't live without it" Kinda boring and repetitive, but good info. Iodine Crisis by Lynne Farrow is also really good. (She talks more about breast cancer than thyroid. But, the iodine information & history is great.)

    • Ok can anyone please shed light on this subject! I been reading conflicting information. Do I really need to be concerned about products that contain these two ingredients in them like my face products and my body lotions and shower gels?  If I'm not ingesting them can they really hurt me?  Only been diagnosed for three weeks with celiac and I'm trying so hard to follow the guidelines but this seems to be a gray area.  I also check on the list of unsafe ingredients and I don't see them listed there so whats the scoop?  Safe or unsafe please help!!!!
