Are you wondering which brands offer gluten-free make up, skincare and body + haircare products, or if gluten in those products really matters? We've got the answers, plus a list of the best gluten-free cosmetic brands.
This G-Free Foodie Guide to Gluten-Free Make-Up & Body Care will be updated as we find new brands & formulations we love. Yeah, we’re a foodie site, but we know that what you put on your body is important too, since most make-up, lotion, & personal care products have a funny way of ending up in our mouths somehow (tricky little lipstick!) As with all G-Free products, formulations may change, so be sure to read labels & check with manufacturers regarding product safety. As with all G-Free Foodie Guides, we’ve listed stuff we actually LIKE.

They list every ingredient of every product in an easy-to-read fashion, so you know what’s in there, and if you have other allergies, you can avoid those too. Love it – and we’re pretty obsessed with their bath bombs.
Morrocco Method: Morrocco Method offers gluten-free, vegan hair, skin & body care products for adults and children.

In addition to their signature lipsticks (which we LOVE) you find mascara, balms, blush, eyeshadow & liner, and even vegan brushes. The founders of Red Apple are gluten-free themselves, so you know you'll be safe with this brand. They also allow you to choose colors for your own eyeshadow palette, which is awesome.
Smashbox: We love, love, love Smashbox cosmetics, from their awesome colors to the incredible coverage. According to Smashbox’s Customer Service team and online ingredient lists, all their products are gluten-gree except: Bionic Mascara in Jet Black, Layer Lash Primer, Halo Hydrating Perfecting Powder in: Fair, Light, Medium and Dark, Doubletake Lip Color in: Praline, Gossamer, Sugar Spice, Cranberry, Lip Treatment, Lipstick Tinted Lip Treatment in: Solar, Ray, Beam, and Shine

Bite Beauty's lip products are 100% gluten free (they went through the USDA certification process and everything)... and they are to DIE for. http://bitebeauty.com/blog/goodbye-gluten/

Has anyone tried or liked Alterna? I have dry, damaged hair, and the moisture repair shampoo and conditioner have been amazing.nothing else I have tried works as well. Any thoughts?
Kristina, I was planning to try Alterna my stylist suggested NEVO hair treatment mask my scalp broke out from Fragrance. Switched to Intelligent Nutrients and it dried out my hair even more.
I started using 100%Pure "Kelp & Mint Shampoo + Burdock & Neem Scalp Conditioner" and my hair is finally healthy again from constant color. Once a week I massage my scalp with Pure Organic Rose Hip Oil as hot oil treatment, wash it off after 30 min; continue w/shampoo & conditioner. I love 100% Pure line because all ingredients are Paraben, GMO, Gluten free. It's leaping bunny certification, certified Organic/Natural Product. Despite there is Tocopherrol (Vitamin E), its derived from Organic product. http://www.100%Pure.com
