I have recently subscribed to a cosmetic industry newsletter. I am hoping to pass on any sort of news I find on the subject. I did recently come across something called Wheat Herbaprotein. It is from a company in Switzerland, and I submitted contact info to find out more about it. It sounds like it wouldn't belong in a "gluten free cosmetics" blog, but the claim is that it is actually gluten free. There wasn't much about it in the news release - October 2007. However, I'm hopeful that the company will contact me soon and let me know more about it.
I am also continuing the search for gluten free cosmetics. Trying to figure out the very best way to present it all. Believe me, there is a lot of info even at the beginning of this search. Sephora (an online beauty consumer portal website) has around 200 brands alone!! Plus there are many others that are common in stores, some home business type cosmetic brands, small family owned companies with limited online presence. When I look at it this way, the task seems daunting! However, I will continue to do my best to put accurate info out there. Most likely, I am considering creating a guide that will be easy to search, sorted by cosmetic item category (like lipsticks, skin care, foundation, etc), and also by company. I may do some on the blog, too. But I'm imagining that might be difficult to search. Just starting out, so we'll see!
Thanks for checking in, and I'd love to help with any inquiries on specific brands. Maybe your favorite is something I've never heard of. Let me know.
