Best Gluten Free Makeup Brands

Maintaining a gluten-free lifestyle can extend deeper than just what you eat. Getting exposed to gluten can happen long before we eat breakfast. A large number of popular shampoo brands contain gluten. Don’t think so? Start reading the labels and you will be surprised to find that gluten is hiding in just about every bottle. Common ingredient names are easy to find; however, manufactures often use scientific names like triticum vulgare (wheat), hordeum vulgare (barley), secale cereale (rye), or avena sativa (oats). Even more complicated names can include stearyldimoniumhydroxypropyl (hydrolyzed wheat protein), hydroxypropyltrimonium (hydrolyzed wheat protein), amino peptide complex, hydrolyzed malt extract, phytosphingosine extract, samino peptide complex, cyclodextrin, prolamine, beta glucan. What about makeup and lotions? These too can contain multiple sources of gluten that can migrate into your mouth. The list of the best gluten-free cosmetic brands have been known to keep ingredients simple and easy to understand. Please read each label and or contact the brand if you have any questions or concerns. Formulations can change and we want you to stay as safe of possible.

  10. Gluten-free does not mean safe and free of harmful chemicals. Ava Anderson Non-Toxic is both gluten free and 100% free of harmful toxins. I know that at least a few of the companies listed here use harmful chemicals even though they advertise themselves as “natural”. Read labels and learn about ingredients!

  11. Les produits Arbonne sont formulés :
    sans gluten
    sans huile minérale ou dérivés de pétrole
    sans parabènes ou phtalates
    sans produits ou sous-produits animaux

Xx

  13. Can I please get the link to your website for the Gluten free cosmetics.
    I unfortunately get severe break out with Celiac Herpformitus sp.?(rash) around my eyes if I get any gluten. I have tried my best to remain completely gf but the make ups seem to work for a little bit then I begin to wonder. I have had several brands I have tried. I need something economical as my husband has severe head trauma and requires constant care so medical bills are sky high!
