Is your lip balm gluten free?


Ever consider how safe your lip balm is? Many people with celiac disease may not realize a common item such as lip balm and lip stick may contain gluten. I was guilty of not knowing this when I first went gluten free. I mean isn’t lip balm supposed to be made of honey and Shea butter for example why would it contain gluten. I use my lip balm several times a day and usually have two or three kinds in my purse. I know I am not the only one, I have several friends who are lip balm junkies also. Often cosmetics companies often use gluten in cosmetics it is very important to find out which ones are safe to use. I have contacted several companies and put together a comprehensive list of some great gluten free lip balms.

Babyganics Kissy Face Lip & Face Balm Fragrance Free: This is a great balm for chapped lips and skin especially if you have a baby or toddler with celiac disease.

Blistex: Their customer service informed me that Stridex and Blistex Lip Care products are gluten free; meaning that they are free from wheat, rye, barley, and oats.

Carmex: Carmex is gluten free! According to their website there is not even a speck of gluten in their products and they do not use any flour in the manufacturing so there is no chance of it on their conveyor belts.

  2. Just found your blog through Living Without Allergies (glad I did). I have had Celiac Disease since 2007. I’ve recently seen an allergist and dermatologist for skin rashes on my eyes and other parts of my body. I am now in the process of determining if I am allergic or have an intolerance to various skin and hair products. You listed several companies for lip balms. But do you have a list of companies or other websites for the skin and hair products that are allergen friendly? Thanks in advance. cc
