Many every day cosmetic items such as lipstick and other personal care items contain some form of gluten and cannot be used by people with celiac disease. However, according to Mintel, between 2007 and 2009, the gluten-free cosmetics and personal care market saw the launch of seventeen new gluten-free cosmetics and personal care brands and the number of gluten-free lip products rose from one to 10.
Now that companies have introduced a gluten-free alternative to common wheat- and milk soy-derived proteins that are found in many products from lotions to shampoo, people with celiac or gluten intolerance can now apply beauty products safely and luxuriously.
Many of the products being developed are also vegan and are attracting a large consumer base. To read more about personal care going gluten-free, please visit:
