Gluten And Soy Free Lotions, Shampoos, Cosmetics, Etc.

I just found out that in addition to my gluten intolerance I also have a soy intolerance. I'm dairy free too but that doesn't seem to be an issue in these self care products. This has thrown me for a loop. I just finished vetting all my food and personal items to rid the gluten and now I have to go through the entire process again. I'm finding that when something is gluten free it contains soy and vice versa. I had to toss all my lipsticks, glosses, lotions, shampoos because they all had soy.

I thought I'd share what I have found so far in case it may be helpful for someone else. If you have any gluten-free/soy-free products you love please share!

I went to the MAC counter at Macy's and they let me flip though their binder that has all of their products and ingredients! I didn't even know such a binder existed! I was on a mission to find a gluten-free/soy-free lipstick and lipgloss. I was surprised to see how variant the ingredients were from one lipstick to another. Here are two that are gluten-free and soy-free: lipglass (a gloss), and slimshine lipstick. It was quite busy so I didn't check the other products such as eye shadow, mascara blush but will go back at another time to do so. They couldn't have been nicer or more helpful.

Next up was stopping at Whole Foods where I got California Baby bath products. One is a body wash and shampoo combo and the other is a lotion. They're gluten-free/soy-free and free of other allergens too. I haven't tried the body wash/shampoo yet but it smells nice. The lotion is very nice, not greasy.

It's expensive to be gluten-free/SF!! But I just can't go without a bit of lipgloss and my beloved Burt's Bees contain soy.

If you use any type of mineral powders, you can check out www.signatureminerals.com. I emailed them a few weeks back, and all of their mineral products are gluten free (that does not go for their skin care and body care, as it is all natural and they do use oats and wheat for some.) Their ingredients are listed on their site, and I can vouch for the minerals: they are absolutely amazing.

Thanks ciavyn, I'll check that out.

I prematurely tossed some of my lotions and glosses but fortunately they can be retrieved from my bin (nothing but papers in there!).

My Avon body wash, lotions and glazewear lipglosses are gluten and soy free! I'm so glad Avon puts the ingredients on their website in nice big print. I got so frustrated reading the ingredients on the bottles in tiny tiny print I just tossed them to be sure.

I'm also glad soy has to be declared as an ingredient. Even if the ingredient is something science-y and impossible to decipher it would say soy in parentheses at the end like so, HBFADFHJVK (soy). I wish gluten had to be declared the same way. Would make our lives easier.

Feeling less overwhelmed about finding gluten-free and soy-free products.

I'm beginning to feel more at ease with having to deal with this soy intolerance on top of my gluten and dairy issues.

Cheers

:)

This just made me pull out all of my products and take a look at them. Fortunately I DON'T have the soy issue because I love Burt's Bees lip glosses and lotions. My shampoo has soy, but my conditionaer does not. I use "Organix" Shea Butter conditioner. The longer you leave it in, the softer it makes your hair. (I find it at my local drug store) I also put a small dab of "Organics" Red Raspberry Conditioner (found at Whole Foods) on the ends of my hair and don't rinse it out. I don't see soy listed in the ingredients but emulsifying wax is vegetable derived, so it'd have to be checked out. Since using the combination of those two conditioners my hair is softer than it's been in a long time, and I color frequently.

I feel for you! It IS expensive to live this way.

    • 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.  
    • There was a study where they checked 2 weeks on a gluten-free diet , and antibodies were still going up .  The study wasn't about that, so I think that is why they didn't go any further.   So... looks like 2 months gluten free?  If we think that antibodies are still being made at least two weeks gluten free.... account for the fact that most people need a few weeks to actually figure out and eat gluten-free...I would say it was a bit soon to re- test antibodies.     Edit it to add- if you were tested sept 12 and ate gluten for 6 more weeks before going gluten-free - who knows how high it got.  Shame on your doctor for doing the re- test so soon and discouraging you!  
    • Your numbers should not be going up at all. You are getting gluten somewhere. Do you eat out? Have you read the Newbie 101 at the top of the coping section? That will help you to ferret out how you may be getting glutened. Do you have a gluten free household or is it a shared household? Do you read ingredient labels?
