Gluten-free living has gotten a whole lot easier these days. Choosing to restrict gluten is not limited to food either, many product companies are also recognizing the need to have options available for those of us who are super sensitive to gluten. Regardless of whether you have celiac disease, are gluten intolerant or gluten sensitive, we’re all a bit more mindful of what we’re putting in and on our bodies. Here are a few gluten-free beauty product companies who are following suit.
Gluten-Free Beauty Products
Ever wondered if it’s essential to stick with gluten-free beauty products if you have celiac disease? Well, according to Allure.com “Gluten-containing beauty products should pose no harm to those with celiac disease unless they’re accidentally swallowed. To reduce the risk, Dr. Gmyrek suggests going gluten-free on all lip products, toothpastes, and mouthwashes, and maybe even foundations, which could be inadvertently wiped into the mouth, and also hand and nail products, for those who mindlessly put their fingers in their mouths.”
To help you ease your search for gluten-free beauty brands, we’ve rounded up list you should consider when buying ones:
Afterglow Cosmetics is the first makeup line to be certified gluten-free by the Gluten-Free Certification Organization (GFCO). Their gluten-free cosmetics are made in a 100% certified gluten-free facility. This extra measure ensures there is no danger of cross-contamination between products.
Most of their products are gluten-free, though they have a disclaimer on their website that they cannot promise that each ingredient in their products was processed in a gluten-free environment. According to their site, “Many of our products do not contain ingredients derived from barley, oats, rye, spelt or wheat, which are commonly known sources of gluten. However, due to the wide range of raw materials and equipment used during the manufacturing of our products, we cannot confirm that our products are free from any traces of gluten. If you have specific questions or concerns regarding gluten, and the ingredients contained in our formulas, we recommend that you consult your physician.”
Bite Beauty focuses on lip products, you can buy from the website online or you can buy from Sephora. Their signature is that their products are made with unprocessed, pure ingredients, and they’re cruelty-free. Their products are also free of parabens, sulfates, and phthalates.
Bite lists their gluten free products on their site in the FAQs, but they don’t say whether any of it is made in a gluten-free facility or on shared equipment. Most likely the latter, so if you have celiac, you may want to contact them directly with that concern.
According to the company: “There is no gluten or wheat protein in any Ecco Bella product. All our products are safe for customers with celiac sprue.” With a love for the environment and care for the well-being of its gluten-sensitive customers, Ecco Bella does not contain any gluten or wheat proteins in any of their products. Even if you suffer from celiac disease, everything from their skin care line to makeup products is completely safe for use so you don’t have to worry about gluten contamination.
Gabriel provides innovative natural beauty solutions, gorgeous color palettes and the confidence to wear vegan, gluten-free, and cruelty-free makeup. According to their website they, “thoroughly inspects the brand’s quality, integrity and purity of the products” from warehouse to market. To make you swoon even more, the brand caters to the gluten-free needs of beauties everywhere in skin care, makeup and kids products.”
A famous drugstore brand claims to use all gluten-free ingredients and also does not test on animals or use ingredients derived from animals, according to the company’s statement. Well clearly, this is an affordable option if you’re looking for a gluten-free brand.
As you navigate celiac disease, you’ll want to also consider mindful use of your beauty routine. We hope this roundup of gluten-free beauty product ideas has been helpful.
