We need your help. Please send us your health care products that are gluten free.
There is debate as to how cosmetics affect the Celiac/ Gluten free person. Each individual needs to determine their comfort level with the products that they are using on their skin and hair. If it comes in contact with your nose or mouth you may want that product to be gluten free. Some areas of concern might be; lipstick and lipliner, cleanser and moisturizer, make up base and face powder, and do not overlook hand cream. There are numerous inquiries about hair care, especially hairspray.
Remember, when looking for cosmetics the same rules apply as when you are food shopping. READ THE LABELS! The following is a list of ingredients names that are Standard FDA approved and used throughout the cosmetic industry.
And if all else fails contact the cosmetic company and ask about the products that you use or are interested in. Most companies have a web site or a toll free number listed on the product packaging.
Kay Turner’s Corner Tips
Kay has purchased shea butter from Africa. This skin care product is excellent for dry skin all over the body. She can prepare the butter with 4 essential oils. They are lavender, Ylang-ylang, Bergamot, and mint. The fragrances can be mixed in any combination. Kay has a wealth of information on skin care products. Always call the manufacturer before using the products. A warning Vitamin E can be derived from either soy or wheat germ oil. To order the shea butter call Kay at this number 972-235-8521.

Avon Gluten Free Product List posted 7/28/2008. This list is too long to be posted here so click on the link to view the list in pdf format.
I am one of the leadership members in the North Texas GIG group. I have recently become an AVON representative. I have tried to get an official list of GF products from AVON and they don’t have it. They even state on their website that they don’t provide a list. I am surprised that Carol was able to get any kind of list from the Avon information center. Anyway, I have just spent the last 4 weeks going through the entire product line and reading all the of the ingredient lists. Some I had to request from AVON to be mailed to me because they were not even available on my representative website. The complete list including a separate list at the end of products that do contain gluten is available at the link above. I will be updating it every month or so as new products are added to the AVON line. I hope this is helpful to your members.

Gluten free make-up posted posted 1/25/2008:
www.everydayminerals.com Products are gluten-free and do not have perservatives--this information is on website!! I love this product! It is very economical as well as safe for sensitive skin and gluten free people. The Best Choice in my opinion!
www.mineralfusioncosmetics.com not all of their products are gluten free but they list what ingredients have gluten in them--very helpful (I love their concealor and brush cleaner, which both according to their website are gluten free. Amanda)
