I wanted to share that EOS products are gluten free, even those containing oats. I knew that their lip balm was gluten free because the packaging states that but didn't think their lotion, shave lotion, etc were because they contain oats. I had contacted their CS with feedback about packaging on a special set that included both lip balm and lotion whereby the "gluten free" statement was placed in such a way that it appeared that both products were gluten-free even though the lotion contains oats and I indicated that was confusing. Their CS replied:

Thanks for writing us. The oat ingredient in our products is certified gluten-free, so therefore our lotion is in fact gluten free. Please let me know if you have any further questions.

Regards,

Sherry J.

Their shaving lotion was by far my favorite shaving product I ever purchased. When I picked up the bottle and read the word oats on the back of the label right after my diagnosis, I actually cried when I threw my bottle of it away. I never thought twice about it. I never considered the idea that a company would go to the trouble of using gluten free oats in a shaving lotion, or lotion.

If there were not a sleeping toddler a few feet from me I would squeal like a little girl. Ice storm or no, I am go straight to Wal-Mart the minute my husband gets up. I could kiss you right now! :wub:

So, because I have so much spare time while there are sleeping boys I called them to ask why they don't point out on the website that the products are gluten free. And to tell them they should. They said that I should send an email to info@evolutionofsmooth.com to let them know that they should make this information more readily available. (After confirming that all products are in fact gluten free, every last one.) So, I say we jump on a bandwagon and let them know that we need to know when companies use gluten free oats. Even if we aren't licking shaving cream off ourselves. :lol:

So glad I could make your day and bring that lovely shave lotion back into your life. The limited edition product I bought had a sample of it in there so I'm excited to try it now. Ah, the little things that bring us such joy!

Oh, and I'm so glad that you got the same response cause I'd hate to say EOS is safe and then have someone else get conflicting info. And their CS is AMAZING. I emailed that info@ account and got a response in like 2hrs. Most companies you email CS and don't hear back for days. I thanked them for their gluten-free labeling and their CS. Wish more companies were like them.

I recently bought their lip balm. To tell the truth, I was attracted to the shape of the container. Then I saw it was labeled gluten free which made me even happier because I didn't have to read all the ingredients! I didn't know they had other products. Definitely will look into them! Thanks for the information.

I went to the website and it doesn't say the oats are gluten-free. I think I will write them, too. If they get several inquiries in a row, they might pay attention. Would lobve them to label it gluten-free on the bottle too.

Just tried to email and the link on thier site didn't work. :angry:

Karen, I just copied the email address into my personal email to contact them. I don't do email links on sites. Most of the time there is some lame popup involving outlook or some other complete failure of a program they like. Meh, I like my email, so copy/paste is just my standard now. Makes my life easier to just assume it won't work.

I bought a couple of the egg shaped lip balms a few weeks ago. I really like this product. Easy to find and cheap too.

I love the lip balm. But no stores anywhere near me have the sweet mint one. It kills me. I've been using the lip balm a long time. I'm shaving my legs with the shaving cream again, no ill effects. It feels so good, and it really cuts down on the amount of lotion I need after. I've never used anything else quite as amazing.

Adalaide, I found the sweet mint one at Walmart by the cash register. Maybe look there. :)

I have 2 Walmarts within 10 minutes of my house and I have checked every register at both. There are also 2 more Walmarts within 20 minutes and a 5th about half an hour away that my husband is a contractor at. No dice. Naturally it is the flavor they are always out of on their website. I'm surrounded by Walmarts that sell nothing I want! WAAAAAA!!!!!

I'm going to check their website, but does anyone know if they are soy and nut free? Thanks! My daughter uses these and I think I saw the mint one at an Ultra store if you have one of those close.

Not sure if coconut counts as a nut but they do have coconut oil. I don't think that they have soy. If you find out, could you please post. :)

No. It is a drupe. Having a lot of time on my hands has lead to a vast array of largely useless knowledge.

Scarfed up the last two bottles of body lotion at my Walmart. The kind I have is unscented and leaves my skin sooooo soft. I can't find the shave lotion anywhere locally. Boo.

Not EOS, but Carmex came out with a line of colored lip moisturizer. I really love them too. It's nice to have some color.

    • I am sorry that your daughter was glutened.   I do not have any tips to offer except to drink plenty of fluids, rest, and have her eat as healthy as possible.   Do you have a 504 plan in place at her new school?  
    • Thank you.  I will try your suggestions.
    • Yeah I tend to have Mr. Hyde come out with gluten exposure. Honestly he was not present with my last few minor issues....anyway. Plenty of fluids, bone broths if she can do them. whole food soups. Avoid processed foods, have more whole foods and greens. Green and herbal teas can help. NOTE there are some enzymes that can help shorten gut issues but I think your daughter is past that point so lets focus on the mood. I find foods that promote melatonin, serotonin, and happy feelings work great. I would suggest hemp but recently there has been a huge industry issue with finding a safe gluten free powder form as most are CCed now. Pumpkin Seed protein from Oregon Seed Oil company can help with mood and is rich in nutrients. I might also suggest a B vitamin complex and perhaps a magnesium complex.....NOW these are not confirmed by check out Natural Vitality Calm for kids see if it might help. I use Liquid health Stress & Energy and Neurological support to help with my mental state, but that company makes some other stuff that might address our daughters issues more, as a liquid you just mix in juice, water, or tea it is great for getting supplementation. http://www.liquidhealthinc.com/products/
    • My daughter (6) was recently glutened by a friend of the family.  She gave her a drink that didn't have gluten in it but was made at a factory that has gluten contamination.   She recently just started a brand new school because we hadn't diagnosed her allergies yet and she has severe behavior problems when she is glutened and she wore out her welcome at Catholic School.  We were keeping her gluten free and her behaviors were wonderful.  Like I said she started the new school and was doing great unbeknownst to me she was glutened and I did not know.   She had a terrible week at school punching people kicking people hit and kick the principal. She is wet the bed every night for 8 days.  Is there any way to flush this out of her system faster.  Normally when she gets glutened it's a 10 to 14 day process.  It hasn't happened in a long time..... Right now I can't even send her to school.
    • I'm so sorry. Nursing school is rigorous enough on top of all this stress.  And, kudos to you for cooking regularly even in school.  I've been through a lot of school and I never managed that.  I can see how it feels hopeless to try and change your roommate's behavior - almost like an insurmountable hurdle! After reading all of these followup posts, I was doing some more thinking. One idea  is posting an add for a gluten free roommate next semester. The more I talk to people the more people I meet that are gluten free. Maybe there is someone out there like you. And one thing I know about medical people is that they are not embarrassed to discuss medical problems (even the ones they should be embarrassed to discuss  )  Put the word out there in your class - find out if there are people doing something similar - maybe they are gluten-free for health or mood or diabetes. And look for people that are low carb, Whole 30, Ketogenic or similar - those folks don't eat gluten either - they just don't call themselves "gluten free".  Maybe you don't have to be trapped in your current situation.  I eat a lot of eggs and beans which are cheap ways to get protein without meat. Also, (and I know this might be controversial) but there is a study out there, that says that celiac patients that get neurotic about avoiding gluten and focus on only eating certified etc  have a worse quality of life (and no improvement in control of their celiac) compared to people who are not as neurotic and eat gluten free foods (but don't only eat certified). That may be a whole separate post - but it's worth considering. I'm one of the neurotic types but I'm thinking about how to be not so crazy!   I wish you the best!
