Tocopherol Acetate?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I know tocopherol can be wheat derived but what about tocopherol acetate?? I've only seen it on here as soy derived but want to make sure. I found a great set from smashbox but this ingredient was worrisome to me so I held of on buying it.

It is my understanding that all smashbox (except the mascara) cosmetics are gluten-free. I use/ have used the cream blush, bronzer, soft focus powder, o-glow blush, lipgloss, eyeshadows and eyeliner with no problem and I have DH.

Sephora sells kits by smashbox-- sometiems with instructional videos that are a good deal. If you like smashbox, also check out NARS-- everything is gluten-free. And NARS is the parent company of Shiseido (also all gluten-free).

Happy shopping!

Thanks! I'm already in love with NARS lipgloss and will have to try some more of their stuff! I had read that the smashbox eyeshadow was ok but didn't know if it was their whole line. I was looking at the starter kit today and just didn't know about that one ingredient! Thanks again :D

Also check out the chanel lines (same parent company I believe). Their lipsticks and lipglosses are also gluten-free and they have a huge range of colors. Awhile back I also published a list of stuff that was okay from Guerlain-- I seem to remember there was some there too.

If you do a search here it should kick those up for you.

Have fun shopping! I like those smashbox starter kits because they are such a deal :-) I got the "7 best" and the "contouring/ highlighting" ones and I have been really happy.

You sound like you use the same lines as me! Do you know about the dior addict gloss?? I read the package and couldn't find any ingredient but their contact form on the website was broken and so I couldn't get an answer from them definitively.

Oh, I am a bit of an addict when it comes to this stuff. I'm sorry I have not researched the dior line. The best bet would be to call them if the link doesn't work. Please post when you find here-- I'm sure lots of people would like to know!

psipsina-

I"m a chemist (hence the username!) and your question nudged me on to see if I could find an answer !

http://books.google.com/books?id=WhNG3uLkq...snum=4#PPA16,M1

This is an entire book about Vitamin E, and on Page 16 it discusses types of tocopherols. Long story short, tocopherol acetate can be synthesized or can come from natural sources; the former is gluten-free, the latter is not. Unless you contact the company directly and ask, you have no way of knowing if the tocopherol in your eye shadow is gluten-free.

Hope that helps...it helped me a lot!! I have DH and am purging my bathroom of all gluten-containing items.

    • In Austin, Wildwood Bakehouse and Wilder Wood Restaurant are totally gluten free.  I had the chicken fried steak and gravy and onion rings!!!  Awesome!!!  
    • Hi there I have this exact same thing.. however I don’t have celiac that I know of.. I found this when google searching for what the heck is wrong with my face.  I was wondering if you ever found out.. or if it just went away. Thanks
    • I have read the newbie 101 and have been careful about reading labels. I'm the only one that's gluten free in my household, so they could be contaminating me. I was eating gluten for 6 weeks after my blood test because it took that long to get an official diagnosis and my GP told me to still be eating it for the tests to be accurate. It was probably too soon to retest, but the test was accidentally ordered by the lab. I have been having an increase in joint pain over the last couple months and my rheumatologist ordered lab work. The lab saw the celiac panel had been ordered, but didn't see results so they added it on because they thought it still needed done.  My gut issues are starting to get better, but I'm thinking the joint pain might have been from the celiacs because all of the rheumatoid tests came back normal for the first time in twenty years.
    • Hi and Welcome to the Forum.  I am glad that you are here! As with a lot of things in life, try not to compare yourself to other people. You are trying to be the best version of yourself - not Jill, Annie, or Maya.  People make a lot of foolish decisions in the world and it does not mean that you should do it too.  Also, many people are gluten free for a lot of reasons that aren't celiac. One of my best friends has gluten sensitivity but not celiac.  He eats a lot of food that I won't touch due to possible cross contamination which he doesn't worry about too much.  Be true to yourself and keep your self healthy.  It is so hard, but it's better than getting sick! I hate not being able to partake in yummy food at parties, but I have learned what junk food I can eat.  I will make sure to buy some tortilla chips or Fritos for picnics.  I freeze gluten-free cupcakes to eat when we celebrate birthday parties (I can just take one out of the freezer and go).  I make sure to take a dish to share to potlucks.  I ask permission at restaurants and parties to bring my own food - no one has ever said no, and when there is a time to celebrate, I splurge on something I really like.  Fortunately, there are a lot of gluten-free foods that I really like. Do i miss pizza and really good burger? YES! And sometimes, I still feel awkward, but life is so much more than food.
    • If Small was going to get rid of anything in a takeaway meal, it would be the bread with all its dreaded gluten. However, many scientists and nutritionists argue gluten is not a problem for people who do not have celiac disease or who are not "gluten-sensitive". Massey University senior lecturer in food ...
