I then asked about lipglosses again as i felt they didnt answer that question.

Dear Michelle,

Thank you for your follow up e-mail regarding gluten in CHANEL

lipsticks. I am pleased to inform you that lip glosses are gluten-free.

Thank you for your continued interest in CHANEL.

Now, what about the tocopheryl in almost all my skincare/makeup products (different brands)? Does that mean they contain gluten? Also, are these companies only looking for the word wheat when researching these questions for me. Chanel took a little while to answer me. They said they were contacting the Research & Development team to get the answer. It sounds promising. I'm not healed yet, as it will probably take a while for me to feel different and I dont want to get screwed by wearing lipstick or using things on my face that could get in mouth that may have gluten in them. If i do, I wont even know because I'm still in the healing process. And I'm such a lipstick/skincare lover. I used to work at Chanel. I have tons of makeup from them! What do you think?

Firstly, thanks for writing the emails and for posting here.

This issue is really frustrating to me personally. I got zapped by lipgloss. All I could see in it was a tocopherol. I would rather have eaten a big old piece of my cousin's wedding cake. I know exactly what you mean. I went on a make-up and bath products rampage and wrote more emails than I remember.

The best we can do, I guess, is write to the companies in question and ask them if they can tell us about their tocopherols. Sometimes I had to explain what gluten is. I got good responses from some like Guerlain, L'Oreal, NARS, Caudalie and 100% pure. Some companies did the equivalent of throwing up their hands in the air and saying "you have got to be kidding me!" See the Juara and H2O+ posts, for example. Some just never answered me-- the majority, in fact. Some gave me the run-around, like Origins.

At this point, I am switching entirely to guerlain, caudalie, NARS and 100% pure for skincare and cosmetics. They are more expensive (100% pure less so) but I do not react to them. That is worth any price for me. Caudalie shampoo is okay.

Good luck Dolcenotte!

I will keep posting responses from any company I ask, in the hopes that it will make things a little easier for all of us. And I appreciate that you are in investigating mode too.

Wow!

Thanks for the info.

Even though it is vitamin E, I am really starting to think it is bad stuff.

    • Sounds great, one of my dreams is to open a grain free/gluten free food truck.......stone and mortar places would not do well here, but a mobile one able to cater....LOL dream I know, fundraiser has flopped and been running for a year. Hell I had the quotes up, the whole sale contracts setup, the business model and plan. I even tried to get loans, and business partners.....all flopped.
    • Just opened in Cincinnati, Oh: Ma and Pa's Gluten Free Cafe. Dedicated gluten-free restaurant. I had the pizza hoagie and onion rings last night. I forgot just how oily onion rings were. They sat in my stomach like concrete all night long but tasted great. Next time I'm getting the pizza or pulled pork with slaw and fries.  
    • Nope, had the flu and this has happened before when I ate the chili. JMG, I read the deadspin article. It's pretty funny. First, at least we're not bull testicles(Montana), and second, Skyline is the only one claiming to be gluten-free besides Hormel(sucks) and Amy's(sucks) that is Cincinnati style. There are many other local chili's but none are gluten-free. Gold Star is good but they say they're shredded cheese isn't even gluten-free. Like I said, Cincinnati style is the best. It's supposed to have roots from the Mediterranean area. Gold Star is ran by Syrian family, there is one or two others that are ran by Greeks. I kinda agree with the article when it comes to Skyline but I can walk in a store and buy it in a can. I started to thaw so meat yesterday to give it a go but am out of Cumin. No chili today
    • ....post is 12 years old, please check the dates, On a side note to this topic, I had no gluten issues with tide but it caused itching for other reasons I went with Rockin Green and Mollys Suds for a natural detergent years ago. You get like 70-90loads from a bag try, Amazon, Luckyvitamin, or Thrive for them.
    • Really interesting point Kareng.  In fact, my ttg went up this autumn (November), depressingly, and I saw a nutritionalist earlier this month and she doesn't want to retest til March.  She felt it was too soon for those figures, too.
