I have been seeing a lot of posts about if a cosmetic product (shampoo, face lotion, hand lotion, make-up, etc..) if they contain Gluten, they are harmful... is this ONLY if it is ingested? by using a face cream, but it does not get in your mouth, are you OK? How can shampoo be harmful??

I have been trying to find an answer online, but to no avail...

Thanks for the help!!

The way I'm starting to look at this is:

A person can inadvertantly ingest gluten from touching gluten-containing skin care products (after directly applying the lotions, or by rubbing one's own skin, after application) and then touching one's own mouth before washing.

I wouldn't worry about this, though, if you are 'completely' symptom-free a few months post starting your gluten-free diet...

I have had some lingering symptoms, so I just want to be sure I am not unknowingly contaminating myself via this potential route - Since it can take some Celiacs a long time to recover from contamination, I would rather begin to avoid gluten-containing skin-care products, to further reduce my risk of contamination -

After being gluten-free for awhile I notice that I become sensitive to being touched by gluten. Shampoo with it gives my head rashes and lotions make me itchy. Plus, I do usually get shampoo in my mouth when washing my hair and I do touch my mouth with my hands. It's best to be careful but it is up to you on what products you use.

I have changed my facial lotions and I usually use a gluten-free shampoo but I have fine hair and when I'm going out on a big date with my BF I use my Bumble and Bumble shampoo for fine hair... now I don't know if there is any gluten in it, I've not checked but it sure does fluff up my hair better then any other shampoo. I try to be really careful when I use it and I'm going to start to watch closely to see if I get an itchy head when I use it.

One in a great while I will use some sort of "new, special" night cream on my face and again, I'm not sure if they are gluten-free for not (looking for the miracle wrinkle cure, no good news to report yet) so I'm extra careful not to get them in my eyes or mouth and I wash my hands really well after I use them.

Oh and I use only gluten-free soaps.

Yea, they are very easy to get into your mouth. You have to really look at every possible avenue for it to get into your mouth.

With things like lipstick though..that is really a must because that is right on your lips.

Even with things like soap..say you was your hands with gluten containing soap, then prepare your food. Well now your food is contaminated. You really just have to think about how it can happen.

I am very sensitive even to touch gluten as well. I get itchy rashes when I come in contact with gluten.

The lipstick thing bothers me, I love lipstick and I gave most of mine to my daughter... is there a list of make up companies somewhere so I can find out what is gluten-free?

Hi Susan

Since you're an advanced member you've probably checked the gluten-free product list link which has been posted about on this forum. But I saw gluten-free make-up line listings. From my notes from the list I see I've written that all Chanel lipsticks except Lipcareline are gluten-free. Max Factor: all lipsticks gluten-free except for Lip Silks. Benefit: all lipsticks are gluten-free. Lancome gluten-free lipsticks: Rouge Attraction, Rouge Absolu, Sheer Magnetic, Juicy Rouge, Juicy Tubes, Star Gloss, Color Dose Lip. Maybeline was unclear so I've written: stay away from this.

All Vidal Sasoon and Pantene hairproducts are gluten-free.

It was very late, and I was pretty tired :blink: when I did my notes, so best to check the gluten-free prod. list to verify the above.

Misa :)

I just checked my shampoos and conditioners and the majority of them contain gluten. They are Biolage color care shampoo, and Nexus: Ensure conditioner, Keraphix conditioner, Botanoil shampoo, and Assure shampoo.

Nexus Rejuv-a-Perm shampoo does not appear to contain any gluten.

I'm a product junkie. Does anyone know of any salon brands that are gluten-free? I generally try to steer clear of grocery store brand shampoos and conditioners b/c of the build up that they can leave on your hair.

I just found out that the entire hair care line by Tosca is gluten free. This is a new brand sold in salons. I've been using the volumizing shampoo and conditioner and love them.

How about dove soap? Is it gluten-free? I tried looking on the delphi list and it hasn't been updated in a while.

Alot of Dove products are gluten free. They are a brand that will indicate gluten on the label in the form of wheat,rye,barley,oats.

I use their bar soap, shampoo, conditioner, hairspray, etc.

    • Ah yes... dry beans. I am fortunate to live near a plant that only processes beans, pulses and rice (Western Rice Mills if you're on the west coast). I doubt that they test, but I would suspect that the biggest part of the risk with that type of food is in the plant where they pack them, as things like barley pearls and wheat berries are often sold as dried goods and would probably be done on the same lines. I would agree that dry beans could be problematic depending on source. 
    • No, Armour has always been gluten free.  The formulation changed a few years back and during the switch, there was a shortage.  That has long since resolved.  Forest Pharmaceuticals (manufacturer of Armour) was bought out by Activas in 2015.  They increased the price!  Now it is comparable to synthetic.   Imtried to find a good and reputable source about the history of thyroid replacement.  Here is one link -- the story is pretty accurate, but the site is trying to sell you stuff.   https://thyroidpharmacist.com/articles/the-history-of-natural-desiccated-thyroid-medications/  
    • If she is now at a public school, accommodations can be made for disabilities.  Here is a link that explains a 504 plan and an IEP, but you will have to investigate based on your state.   https://www.foodallergy.org/education-awareness/advocacy-resources/section-504-and-written-management-plans https://www.understood.org/en/school-learning/special-services/504-plan/the-difference-between-ieps-and-504-plans http://kidshealth.org/en/parents/504-plans.html https://www2.ed.gov/about/offices/list/ocr/504faq.html i am not very knowledgeable about this subject, so I encourage you to contact your school district for help.  Your doctor might be a good resource too.   You might consider homeschooling until she has been diagnosed and has received treatment.  The Department of Education can direct you to homeschooling resources.  There are lots of wonderful programs out there and you can get financial support.   I wish you all well!  
    • You make a good point about being neurotic. I'm slowly getting better. I guess time will tell. But thank you for the insight.   As far as roommates go, that's a good idea. I've definitely been thinking about that. But these guys are my best friends and the process of getting a new roommate this late in my schooling might be hard. Although, I will keep my eye out for the opportunity. 
    • Hello I understand what you are going thru. My son almost died from going 27 years without figuring out it was gluten and then corn causing all the illness. I brought him to Drs, none of them figured out gluten intolerance. Oh they told us he had everything else. Then as time went on, he found out he has issues with corn. Corn has identical genetic make-up as gluten.  Corn is sneaky and everywhere. Contact the manufactures, ask them if there is a chance of contamination or corn ingredient in their products. My son gets neurological problems when gluten/cornized. Anxiety, obsessive thoughts, can not think. He had to be taken out of school and homeschooled. He just found out the digestive enzymes he was taking contain an enzyme that is grown on barley. Enzymedic basic.  My suggestions for you are, seriously go find another place to live. You need your mind and health to continue school. If you don't and continue living where you are, school will suffer. In your spare time, find out all you can about gluten and what other foods act like gluten in the body. Like I said, corn has the same genetic make up as gluten, some people can not eat rice either. This is something that is doable, it is just becoming very aware of what goes in the mouth. Please find another place to live. You don't need to deal with those jerks, you have enough going on with school and health. There might be other people in your school that are celiac or gluten sensitive. Find them, post notes up, start a newsletter about gluten free lifestyle. I bet there are many people that would welcome that newsletter.  You don't need to do this alone!   You are the most important person in your life, you deserve to feel good and be respected! Stay away from those that don't respect you. Search out those that will.  Eating out is something that can be done, find those places that will work with you. Ask to have burgers or meat cooked on aluminum foil. Fresh veggies, fruits all gluten free. Again, research restaurants in your area willing to work with you. Even call the manager and talk to them. All the best to you!  Hang in there.
