Gluten In Makeup?

Does anyone know exactly what to look for in ingredients for make-up and lip gloss...things like that. Will it say wheat or is the gluten in another ingredient? I was diagnosed with Celiac a little over a year ago. While I was sick for so long, I of course wasn't even thinking about make-up or anything like that, but now I'm trying to figure out what of my old stuff to keep and what to throw away. If anyone has any ideas, it would be great!

Alot of the ingredients are complicated so the best thing to do is call the company. Alot of lipsticks have wheat starch in them. I had some lip balm I was using and I was feeling awful and called and the vitamin e in it was derived from wheat. They can hide it under pretty much everything. I changed completely to Bare Escentuals because all their makeup is gluten-free. Have you also checked lotions, shampoos, etc. Traces could be getting into you that way and causing you to feel bad. Pretty much all makeup can contain gluten...most of my stuff used to so I had to get new makeup.

Is there such a thing as a Bare Essentials store or do you have to order everything over the internet?

I haven't seen it in regular stores. We order it by calling QVC(my mom does not like ordering over the Internet so we avoid that)...they have makeup kits and so forth that are much cheaper then the actual bare escentuals store.

Hi Kati,

Do they sell Bare Escentuals in any store? How do you match your foundation if you can't see it first?

They have light, medium, dark and like 5 or 6 foundation colors. The colors are pretty much like other foundations so whatever you would get there order that color. It lasts a very long time. The eye shadows and everything also last a long time. I have the light/medium foundation and I'm almost halfway through it at 4 months or so...so it lasts a while...if you have any questions email me I can send you a link to more info about it.

I saw info on cosmetics on the news tonight. The group posting the info seems a little on the extreme side, but the info looks accurate. Hope they can get those guys to clearly label everything...at least then we would know if we were getting nasty stuff even if it is something as "natural" as wheat. Check it out and let me know if you find any other info.

Dang--I am a bit of a makeup whore :) ! I have a trunk full of a myriad of different brands... I understand lipstick needing to be gluten-free. What about other makeup--eye shadow, mascara etc? And is it as important for those who do not have derm. hep to make sure their makeup is gluten-free? just when you think you've got it all figured out... :D

To me I have to have all makeup gluten free...think about how many times you touch your face then touch food without washing hands....when you wash it off the possibility of it getting into your mouth...etc...I would rather be safe the sorry when it comes to that stuff.

I was one of the people that didn't worry about gluten-free makeup and hair products, until I became very ill one morning. I had the same breakfast that I always have and was fine until I was driving to work approximately 10 minutes after eating. I had to come home from work and was sick the rest of the day. I could not figure out what made me sick until I read the ingredients on my hairspray. It contained wheat protien!

I have since been working on eliminating everything that contains gluten. I have started using Bare Escentuals too. I love them. I was skeptical about a powder foundation, but it goes on easy and stays on all day. I purchased some off of QVC and then found a place on Ebay that are less expensive. They are new products and are sealed.

I would definitely say it is very important that all makeup and hair products be gluten-free. :rolleyes:

I don't have DH and didn't worry about gluten-free makeup or hair products until I started waking up every morning with my eyes crusted shut. I looked at my shampoo and sure enough it had wheat protein in it. I had been using MAC makeup but then I had my makeup done by the woman who is going to do it for my wedding and she used most of my makeup but a little of hers as well. Not surprisingly, I woke up the next morning with my eyes crusted shut. So, I think it is very important to use gluten-free makeup and hair products.

Some people recommend that all the products that you use should be gluten free but others don't think that it matters that much. It depends on how you react to the make-up. For me, I didn't think that it was a problem until I started to realize that everytime I wore eye shadow I got a splitting headache. I then found out that the brand of eyeshadow that I was using had gluten in it. I believe it was both Estee Lauder and Clinique products that contained gluten. Since, then I've contacted companies and found out that Bare Essentials, MAC Cosmetics and Chanel products are gluten free.

I haven't worn makeup (any makeup) in years because everytime I wore any my face would break out in a really nasty rash.

I heard something about Burt's Bees makeup being gluten-free, does anyone know if this is true?

I have a store called Ulta and they contain salon items.

They have a line of makeup called Bare Minerals. I haven't had a chance to check into it very much but from what I know it is made from minerals.

Maybe this can help too.

Hi Katie,

There's a Sephora at Montgomery mall in Maryland and at Tysons corner in Virginia. :P Montgomery mall would be close enough for you to get to.

Katie, guess what? I just googled it and there is now a Sephora at Columbia mall. If you have never been there you should check it out. It is our favorite mall in the area. Great stores. :lol: Have fun

    • Insurance is a pain! But, one of the interesting things about the Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare) is that it set individual out of pocket maximums. This year it is $7100. I realize that it is a HUGE amount of money, but if you started to pursue the work up this year and don't delay, you could get everything done (scope, labs, doc visits) and know the answer in a couple of months.  The most you would pay is $7100 for everything. Most hospitals have payment plans and some offer discounts if you pay cash. It's just a thought, but sometimes getting all your healthcare needs answered at once can relieve a lot of anxiety and be more affordable in the long run. I wish you luck. I hate insurance issues.
    • Hi all, I know this strand is a little old, but I just joined and have a related concern and wanted to express it in the right place. My period has been changing over the past two years or so. I used to be like clockwork, every 28 days. Now they come a little earlier and don't last as long, or they stop and restart, sometimes with some mid-cycle spotting. I've also been fatigued but that could have to do with work (I run my own business and teach on the side). I didn't make any connection with my celiac DX until yesterday when I was reading about peri-menopause. This month I got the heavy feeling in my legs and the sense that it was coming but... it never came. I thought I had a long time before I had to worry about the change! I'm 42. I've never missed a period, even when I was super-anemic. Ugh. Fortunately my mom said she never had any truly uncomfortable symptoms and she (still!) has the bone density of a much younger person. Hopefully I'll have the same experience. My yearly GYN appt. is coming up in July. Should I just wait and see, then say something to my doc then? Thanks in advance for any light you could shed on this.
    • You would think that there is enough people out there, people with celiac disease, that we'd be able to push for a better standard than 20ppm. The problem is the FDA. Too much lobbying involved. It's no different than the fight people are having with Monsanto. I hear that there are several medications that are showing promise in Canada who I think also has a better standard than us.(not positive about that though)
    • Make sure that you ask the doctor how long she has to stop the supplements before you have her levels tested and be sure to take them all with you when you have the appointment so the doctor knows what she is taking.
    • Talk to your doctor. With your family history and symptoms he/she may be able to diagnose based on resolution of your symptoms and family history. Also check with your local hospital if it has it's own lab.  Mine covered any labs at a greatly reduced cost based on a sliding fee scale. Did you have an MRI before they did the spinal? Celiacs with neuro impact will have white spots on an MRI that resemble the lesions found with MS. Many neuro doctors don't know this. I went through what you did and they did a spinal on me also based on the MRI results. If my doctor had know what the UBOs (unidentified bright objects) were I would have been diagnosed a couple years sooner than I was. Make sure if you supplement that you ask your doctor which ones you need to stop taking and for how long before they do a blood test to check levels. Sublingual B12 is a good idea when we have nervous system issues, but needs to be stopped for at least a week for an accurate blood level on testing. I hope you get some answers and feel better soon.
