Carefully watch for gluten ingredients in your cosmetic products

Are you about to apply your favorite lipstick? Wait! If a product containing gluten comes in contact with your lips, it can easily be ingested, gravely impacting your health.

You may need to swap out your regular products with gluten-free alternatives. Committing to a gluten-free lifestyle means taking a close look at the ingredients found in your skincare products, especially those which can be easily ingested.

  • Hydrolyzed wheat protein
  • Hydrolyzed wheat starch
  • Hydrolyzed wheat gluten
  • Triticum Vulgare
  • Wheat germ oil
  • Wheat germ extract
  • Wheat germ glycerides
  • Vitamin E derived from wheat germ
  • Oat bran
  • Oat flour
  • Oat extract
  • Oat protein
  • Avena sativa
  • Barley extract
  • Barley solids
  • Samino peptide complex
  • Hordeum vulgare
  • Phytosphingosine extract

Remember, labels may not always reflect all the ingredients used. It is difficult, expensive, and time-consuming for a manufacturer to test and label gluten-free products.

You need to be mindful of what you put on your skin, the largest organ, as gluten infiltrates your body through absorption. For those with gluten sensitivity or celiac disease, it is critical to have both a gluten-free diet as well as a gluten-free skincare routine. We don’t want to take unnecessary risks!

The good news is that there is a wide range of makeup brands, both small and large, that offer gluten-free products. Just make sure to purchase gluten-free products that have undergone rigorous testing to ensure that there is no trace of gluten present. Many brands are increasingly being forthcoming about their ingredients; some will even provide you with the contact numbers or websites to get more information about their products. Most importantly, always remember to feel confident while using their products!

So, what are you waiting for? Switch to gluten-free!
