Gluten Free Make Up

Toxic Cosmetics – Are You Putting Yourself at Risk?

Dr. Osborne here, gluten free lipstickMost brands of make up are extremely toxic. Women using these products on a consistent basis are putting themselves at great health risk. Below you can listen to the interview I recently did with Jay Harper, founder of Red Apple Lipstick. Some of the highlights of the interview include:
  • Make up toxicity – how no safety testing is required in manufacturing of make up
  • How gluten in lipstick can cause persistent illness in those with gluten sensitivity
  • How chemicals in makeup act like estrogen
  • The difference in the ingredients of cosmetic products
  • How many brands of make up can increase your risk for breast cancer
  • What to look for to avoid toxic chemicals in your products

Make-Up Cross Contamination

Many of those going gluten free are overwhelmed by the diet changes that they don’t even think about the possibility of make up and cosmetics creating a problem for gluten exposure. Fact of the matter is, many of these products contain wheat fillers and other grain based ingredients that can contribute to consistent gluten exposure. I have seen patients who were non-responsive to diet changes because of this issue. Remember that men are at just as great of a risk. Kissing can be a source of cross contamination. Make sure that you take the time to look at your products and read the labels to rule out exposure. I strongly recommend going with a cosmetic company that produces make up in small batches in a dedicated grain free facility. You can visit Red Apple here <<<

  1. I did research and ended up ordering/using Gaberiel Cosmetics (ordered on-line). Have you checked that company’s products out? Would like to know your thoughts on that. Thank You!!

  2. I was thrilled to see Dr. Osborne spreading the word about RAL! I found them online last Fall and am eternally grateful to Jay & Andrea Harper for creating and operating this company. It’s so hard for us celiacs to find good GF lip products to ease the “celiac chap”.

    I absolutely LOVE Red Apple Lipstick products! Not only are they GF/nontoxic, but are superior in quality to anything else on the market – and I’ve used some very high-end stuff. The eyeshadows are amazing too, staying true and outlasting any other mineral-based product I’ve tried.

    I’ve done several posts on my blog to promote them and have given lipsticks, balms and glosses as gifts to friends and family. We’re all hooked! I am never without my Rallye Balm (and lipcolors)!

    Keep spreading the word to all our GF (and non-GF!) friends about RAL’s non-toxic makeup. They’ll thank you for it.

  3. Dr Osborne–i have been using Red Apple products for over a year and I absolutely love them all. ….and Red Apple’s customer service is AMAZING!!! Kudos to Jay Harper
    for a job well done. Red Apple is now looking into making GF foundation or eye makeup. Cannot wait for that to happen.

  4. Ava Anderson is another great company. They do have some corn in some of their products, but they are working on taking it out if I am not mistaken. I get mine through Their powder foundation is the healthiest out there. I love their mascara and lip stuff.

  5. I used to work for Revlon so I’ve used their lipsticks for the last 30 years. I bought 3 lipsticks and a lipliner from Red Apple… have to say I was shocked. Great texture, not only do they go on nicely but they stay on all day. Nice feeling. After this experience I would buy Red Apple Lipsticks even if I didn’t have a problem with gluten.

  6. Thank you Dr. O for posting this information. I have been on the look out for a great lipstick that is gluten free! I also just recently found a wonderful night cream from Nerium International that is gluten free. (No parabens, no gluten, no phthalates, no propylene glycol, no synthetic fragrance, no mineral oil, no sulfates, no PABA, no synthetic color, no DEA, No GMO, No animal testing). NAE-8 extract is an exclusive antioxidant and it was recently patented! The day cream will be released in September.

  7. I use AfterGlow cosmetics. They are a gluten free company and their products are great. I will have to try the Red Apple lipstick, though!

  8. Priority has the chemical element you are sensitive to. You can learn to test for it with a linear polarization filter and Nogier reflex. Gluten-free products may contain it too.

  9. I haven’t tried or heard of this company before! Sounds great, I work for a very stringent gfree company that sells all kind of skincare, cosmetics and nutrition products and am CONSTANTLY telling people if it TOUCHES your skin, your body is going to absorb it no different then your digestive system.

  10. Many thanks for sharing this! It is frustrating to say the least when you know you know the necessity for gluten free cosmetics but your research comes up short!
