G-Free Foodie Guide to Gluten Free Cosmetics, Make-Up & Body Care – UPDATED
by G-Free Foodie Team, Posted February 22nd, 2012 at 5:50 pm

This G-Free Foodie Guide to Gluten-Free Make-Up & Body Care will be updated as we find new brands & formulations we love.  Yeah, we’re a foodie site, but we know that what you put on your body is important too, since most make-up, lotion, & personal care products have a funny way of ending up in our mouths somehow (tricky little lipstick!) As with all G-Free products, formulations may change, so be sure to read labels & check with manufacturers regarding product safety.  As with all G-Free Foodie Guides, we’ve listed stuff we actually LIKE.

Afterglow Cosmetics: Created by Kristen Adams for her mother & sister with Celiac Disease, Afterglow Cosmetics are 100% Gluten Free.

Bare Escentuals: Every product in the Bare Escentuals line of mineral-based make-up and skin care line is Gluten-Free.   Check out their Bare Minerals, Buxom & MD Formulations lines.

Bliss:  At G-Free Foodie, we can’t get enough Bliss!  All of their products, with the exception of the Lemon+Sage Shampoo & Conditioner, are completely Gluten-Free.  If you looked into our staff’s collective bag of tricks, you’d find Bliss’ The Youth as We Know It, No Zit Sherlock & Fat Girl Slim, plus an array of Bliss Body Butters.  The Bliss Spas are amazing too, and they happily accommodate all allergy issues – in fact, they’ll ask about allergies when you book your appointment so it’s handled before you arrive.  Even calling the 800# at Bliss is great – a real human who knows their product information answers super-fast.

California Baby: All of California Baby‘s natural products are Gluten & Casein free.  Great products for little ones & adults too, plus hard-to-find G-Free items like Bug Spray & Massage oil.

Desert Essence: Offers natural, gluten-free formulas suitable for all our customers. Look for hair, body & skin care products from Desert Essence.

Ecco Bella: Most of Ecco Bella‘s products are Gluten-Free, and all are Casein free.  Their FAQ‘s page has a list of any of their products that contain gluten.

Gluten-Free Savonnerie: Gluten-Free Savonnerie creates Skin & Body care products that are free of Gluten, Casein, Corn, Nuts & Soy.

HerbologyHerbology makes delicious-smelling skin & hair care products that are Gluten & Chemical Free. They also have a line specifically formulated for men.

LUSH Handmade Cosmetics: With a huge assortment of skin, hair & body care products made by hand from organic & natural ingredients, LUSH is pretty hard to beat.  They list every ingredient of every product in an easy-to-read fashion, so you know what’s in there, and if you have other allergies, you can avoid those too.  Love it – and we’re pretty obsessed with their bath bombs.

Morrocco Method: Morrocco Method offers Gluten-Free, Vegan hair, skin & body care products for adults and children.

Neutrogena: Many of Neutrogena‘s products are Gluten-Free, if you contact their Customer Service team, they will email you a current list of G-Free products.

Pangea Organics: All of Pangea Organics’ products are Gluten-Free, with the exception of Oatmeal Bergamot soap.   This all-organic line is safe for children and most of their products are vegan, all are crulety-free.  Pangea’s Ingredient Glossary is a great source for information.

Smashbox: We love, love, love Smashbox cosmetics, from their awesome colors & coverage to their Smashbox Cares program.  According to Smashbox’s Customer Service team and online ingredient lists, all their products are Gluten-Free except: Bionic Mascara in Jet Black, Layer Lash Primer, Halo Hydrating Perfecting Powder in: Fair, Light, Medium and Dark, Doubletake Lip Color in: Praline, Gossamer, Sugar Spice, Cranberry, Lip Treatment, Lipstick Tinted Lip Treatment in: Solar, Ray, Beam, and Shine

Tarte: Many of Tarte’s products are labeled Gluten-Free, and ingredients for all of their make-up, skin & body care products list all ingredients clearly.

Tilvee: The team at Tilvee assures us that all of their Body & Skin care products are Gluten-Free, and they have an awesome ingredient glossary on their site too.  Their Acai Pomegranate Rejuvenating Masque has Oat Flour, so Celiacs may want to steer clear of that option just in case.  Tilvee is committed to socially & environmentally responsible products and uses no toxic ingredients.

Thanks for these! I am looking forward to trying these out!

Bite Beauty’s lip products are 100% gluten free (they went through the USDA certification process and everything)… and they are to DIE for. http://bitebeauty.com/blog/goodbye-gluten/

Has anyone tried or liked Alterna? I have dry, damaged hair, and the moisture repair shampoo and conditioner have been amazing.nothing else I have tried works as well. Any thoughts?
