My Favorite Gluten-Free Beauty Products

Gluten Free, List, Beauty Products, Cosmetics, Jason Natural

Avoiding gluten? Then you should probably check that the lotion you are putting on your body or the shampoo you are using does not contain gluten. Sadly most cosmetics do (not to mention chemical additives and the like). Even trace amounts of gluten can be absorbed into the bloodstream and cause problems for celiacs and those sensitive to gluten. It has been my experience that beauty products that do not contain gluten often are much more natural because they are made from pure, organic ingredients.

These are ingredients in cosmetics that could contain gluten and are best avoided:

barley extract


fermented grain extract

hyrolyzed malt extract

hydrolyzed wheat protein

hydrolyzed vegetable protein


oat (avena sativa)


samino peptide complex

phytosphingosine extract

triticum vulgare

Secale Cereale

Sodium C8-16 Isoalkylsuccinyl Wheat Protein Sulfonate

wheat germ

vitamin e

yeast extract

It has taken me almost a year to pick my favorite gluten-free beauty brands. While I don’t use all of these brands, I like them all because of the natural ingredients they are derived from. While many cosmetics can be made at home, I thought the list below would be helpful for those of us that don’t always have time to make our own beauty products. I hope this list helps you the next time you are shopping online or at the grocery store:

Gluten-Free Beauty Brands:


AnneMarie Borlind


Desert Essence


Ecco Bella

Green Beaver


Jason Natural

Juice Beauty

Hugo Naturals


Mineral Fusion

MyChelle Dermaceuticals

Organic Excellence

Organix South

Pangea Organics

Many of these beauty products can be found on iHerb as well as at Sunflower Markets, Whole Foods and other national grocery and health food stores.

    thanks for the blog visit :). how did you overcome your food allergies? its nice to know how other people can relate – it’s the worst feeling when you are restricted…..and your body isn’t happy. :T

    •  @juniakk I avoid gluten and dairy and seem to have no issues now as long as I am careful to not eat them. My husband who has celiac disease has to be more careful with cross-contamination and we eat mostly at home.

    I would recommend the facial products from It Works!  They produce amazing results, are gentle on the skin, made from whole natural foods.  It Works has many gluten free products for tightening, toning, firming, and diminishing fine lines, wrinkles, and scars.

    I love Arbonne products – although not all are gluten free , they provide quite a comprehensive list to consultants that are gluten-free. Any Vitamin E in products is also derived from Soy.  Includes Baby Care, Aromassentials, Cosmetics, Sun  Care, Vitamins and wellness range and Anti-ageing range.

  7. Monave’s products are 100% gluten free with the exception of our oatmeal soap. Every other one of our hundreds of cosmetics are gluten free. I am a celiac, and we have simple formulas, so it was an easy transition for us. We simply started using rice-based vitamin E. We have been gluten free since 2008.
