Gluten Free Cosmetics & Body Care Products For Celiacs

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I wanted to start a topic about gluten free makeup & body care products for those of us who have celiac. I thought it would be fun to trade product info. as it is so frustrating and time consuming trying to figure out which products are "safe." I try to find ones that also don't contain any parabens or "bad" ingredients.

Here's what I currently use:

For lipsticks and lip liners - Jane Iredale, Mineral Fusion, Glo Minerals, & Burts Bees Lip Shimmers

Concealer - Jane Iredale

Mascara - Tarte

Body lotion - Shikai Borage

Shampoo & conditioner - Head Organics

Hand soap - Kiss My Face Fragrance Free Moisture Soap

I've also read that Lavera & Afterglow cosmetics are gluten free but I haven't tried them yet.

What gluten free products have you found that you like? (Makeup, lotions, sunscreens, self-tanners, soaps, shampoos & conditioners, shaving cream, etc.)

Also, I am looking for a new gluten free concealer, solid face powder, and am always on the lookout for new lipsticks/lip liners. Any recommendations?

I too use Kiss My Face (olive or olive oil) soap for body and hands.

For high end cleanser, Peter Thomas Roth is gluten-free. They sent me a whole list of their other gluten-free products.

A lot of Yonka is gluten-free. Creme 11 for example. And their Optimizer.

I also use Shikai body and face moisturizer, although the latter can smell disconcertingly like chicken broth when you first put it on!

(Kiehl's has gluten)

I use Mary Kay lip gloss with color. Otherwise, no makeup.

I am still on the lookout for more gluten-free products. I am using up my gluten containing shampoo. I just can't waste it.

Kirkland ( Costco) shampoo and conditioner are gluten-free and I was surprised the changes in my hair- not losing as much, less spilt ends, softer, etc. Price is great too.

I just got Joelle (my mineral glitters). Just put it on for the first time. It went on well, blends well. I think I got too dark a blush (True Rose) as I'm very fair skinned. Next time I plan to try cotton candy. The prices were comparable to Avon. The blush was smaller than Avon's however that could be due to the fact I bought the complete kit which included a blush. The eyeshadow in the kit is much bigger than the eye shadow I bought separate.

Just as a side note, Burt's Bees products may be cross-contaminated, according to the company. I used to use it and my lips would break out so I called the company to see if it was 100% gluten-free and they said it may be CCed. Now I use Soft lips brand, which is 100% gluten free, their whole factory is gluten free!

I'm a little late jumping on this bandwagon, but I use PRIIA and Origins. PRIIA has to be ordered online, and not everything at Origins is gluten-free, but the saleslady was really helpful. (They're at Macy's.) I also have one of Red Apple Lipstick's products and love it.

For nail polish, all I have tried so far is Zoya. They don't have a large color range in my local Whole Foods, so I may need to order that online, as well.

Quick question: I'm thinking about starting a blog about living/going gluten free. It would be basically a compilation of all of my research into gluten-free foods, products, restaurants, etc. Would this interest anyone, and/or be helpful? Thanks!

    • 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.
