Wanted: Cosmetics / Make up 100% free from gluten, wheat, soy, yeast

7 posts in this topic

Hi, I'm a new to the boards so I hope I'm posting this in the right forum.

I've been reading the great post by LM_06 finding a new make up and I'm slowly making my way thru the list of companies and waiting for replies!

I need to find some cosmetics that are free from gluten, wheat, (barley, oats, rye), soy, yeast, tapioca and are vegan (no dairy, casein, lactose, whey.) Including wheat/soy free vitamin E / tocopheral.

Can anyone please help me?

I've been told gluten isn't absorbed in the skin but because of other allergies I cannot have any at all as I react so badly.

I've tried:

Afterglow - advised me not to use.

Herbs of Grace use soy but could be gluten free - has anyone used?

Lily Lolo - said to avoid

Laranim - no reply yet

Bare essentials and EDM both said to avoid because of CC issues.

Barry M have wheatgerm in some products and unsure what the Vit E is soy derived!

I've emailed so many firms but because I've so many allergies the majority so far are saying to avoid!! I'm looking at making my own but what if the individual ingredients have CC issues and unsure where to buy!

Are there any make ups / cosmetics I could use? Any help is very grateful and thanks for reading.

almost everything on this site is gluten free, vegan - great products too =] Most of the product descriptions list the gluten free status. Desert Essence hair care is all gluten free (and listed)


It is like a reason that picks you up

And places you

Where you always wanted

To be.

My experience:

Bare Minerals (Original or Matte Mineral Foundation Powder):

yes. aviod. I'm slowing getting my skin used to the mary kay mineral make-up, but I'm starting to think that that make-up is no good either.. /:

SO avoid that. I don't really have a lot f experience with much make-up.

Whenever I find some I try it out.

I avoid liquid, just because it accentuates my dryness.. :sick: bleh. flaky skin is narsty.

I wish I could find something good enough to get rid of it

ooh and CLINIQUE= NOT worth it. The pricing is CRAZY, and the products aren't any better than drug store. I would not recommend their make-up or cleansers (besides to someone with flawless skin regardless of what they put on their skin, arghh)


washing with water, jojoba oil, or a mild cleanser.

mask whenever i feel like it (like 2x a month).

vitamin when i remember.

eating dairy-free for 2 months (trying).

just got off monocycline. life is a lil rough right now, but no one would understand.

OH. number one thing you must know about me. Jesus is my life.

sadly i'm fighting off vanity right now, how pathetic of me.

OH WOW.

I just came across this blog:

http://glutenfreecosmeticcounter.blogspot.com/

pretty much any link takes you to websites that have gluten free products

not ALL the products are gluten free on the websites, but their are certain items.

She even says which are and which are not.

seems pretty cool, you should look at it.

but I'm going to warn you, theres a lot to read, so make sure you have time.

you girls might want to try motives by loren. i have been using for a couple years now and even though my skin is still bad.. i know that its not from the make-up and the science behind their products are there. the make-up is hypo-allergenic and talc free... you might want to check the other ingredients but oher wise... they have great skin care and vitamins too... good cover-up and greart colors, not too expensive. ooh plus when you sign up as a prefered customer you can earn cash back just for shopping...(thats my favorite part)

i suggest using the motives liquid mineral foundation with the motives full cover photo finish.

i hope this helps good luck!
