More to consider/think about when we, on avg, eat 6 lbs of lipstick a year? Apparently we should also consider LEAD in our lipstick, not just gluten.

PROCTER & GAMBLE:
a recent post from the celiac listserv:

Quote:

I posed the question of gluten in P & G products as an online customer support question. This is the response I received:


----------------------------------------
-------------
Response (RightNow Administrator) - 08/15/2008 06:42 PM
Thanks for contacting us.

We know Celiac is a serious disease, so we want to give you clear information regarding the use of our beauty care products. If wheat and/or gluten aren't directly added to a product by us, these ingredients won't be listed on our packages. Like many companies, we often purchase the scents for fragranced products from outside suppliers, and the components of these substances are proprietary information belonging to those companies. Therefore it's possible that a very small amount (generally parts per million) of gluten may be present.

We sought advice from physicians; they told us it would be very unlikely a person with Celiac disease would have a reaction from a trace amount of gluten coming into contact with his skin or hair. This is because wheat, rye, barley and/or gluten generally cause symptoms when they're ingested. Since our beauty care products are designed to be used externally on the skin, their use shouldn't be an issue for someone with this disease.

Since gluten sensitivity can vary among people, it would be best if you consulted with your physician about the use of all types of consumable goods, if you haven't already. You might even consider using one of our fragrance free products that doesn't list gluten or wheat extracts on the label.

Also, none of our current Crest toothpaste versions, Crest Whitestrips versions, or Crest Night Effects contains gluten. In addition, none of the
ingredients used in Glide dental floss contains gluten.

Although we do not directly add ingredients that contain gluten to Crest Pro-Health Rinse or to Crest Whitening Rinse, it's possible these products could contain trace amounts. We recommend you contact your doctor before using these rinse products if you have questions or concerns about gluten.

Thanks again for getting in touch with us. I hope this response has been helpful to you. For more information about Celiac, you may want to check out celiac.com/ and celiac.org

Hi everyone,

I've been a bit quiet lately but I do read your info with interest.

Another link is www.emmscosmetics.com (sorry you'll have to type this up as I am not sure how to make it a working link!

This is an Australian woman that I met at a women's health expo (here in Australia) who makes gluten and cruelty free, chemical and preservative free products. I am now using their lipstick which is very good. I figure that as I always wear lipstick every day, I am basically ingesting it.....

regards Frances
