I have to admit, I have never been very sensitive about whether or not my skin care and beauty products contain gluten. I mean, I make sure that anything that goes on my lips is gluten-free, but beyond that, I've never seemed to have any issues. I do read all the labels on the products I use, and I know that my make-up and lotions are gluten free, but my hair products contain wheat amino acids. But honestly, as long as I don't chew on my hair I have never had an issue.
For the past several years, I have been using various lip balms and have been mostly satisfied with them. My only issue is that I feel like I am reapplying at least once an hour, maybe more. Talk about time consuming. When I started seeing Red Apple Lipstick come up in tweets and posts by my fellow GFFs, I had to check them out. Boy am I glad I did - what an awesome company! Red Apple Lipstick makes all of its products from scratch so you're guaranteed to get a great product. Also, there is no petroleum, no animal bits, no gluten, soy, dairy, corn, harsh chemicals or GMOs in any of the products. What you're left with is lip balm and lipstick that are the most moisture-rich products I have ever used, and they last for hours!
It is quite refreshing that some major companies are now starting to make products for the growing food allergy / food restrictions market. As a mom of 4 kids who were diagnosed later in their life, meaning they used to eat certain food they were allergic too, the transition is a bit more challenging. Though I can make excellent "safe food", there's something about having a take out or delivery that helps them feel a bit more normal.
