Burt’s Bees Gluten Free

IMPORTANT UPDATE – I’ve seen in numerous places that Burt’s Bees is possibly not a safe gluten free option anymore. Officially, the website says to contact them directly. I’ve seen a few responses listed from people that there are some cross contamination issues.

PLEASE contact them on your own to get the straight answer from the company before you purchase anything. Sounds like this is a very disappointing development and I don’t want anyone getting themselves in trouble. Boo. :(

Carmex is completely gluten free, if anyone is wondering. I also just sent an e-mail to Blistex to find out if they are gluten free

Thanks so much, June. And please report your findings on Blistex when you hear back from the company.

also be careful to check if there is any petrolatum or petroleum in any of the ‘gluten free’ items. u dont want a ‘chemical” being absorbed in your system either!!!!!!

My sister is beginning a Mary Kay Cosmetics business. I want to be supportive….but you know how it is….does anyone know if Mary Kay products are gluten free?

Also, I’m desperate to find a good leave-in conditioner and body lotion. I also have to avoid soy and all other plant oild except a tiny bit of olive oil.

My name is Daniella, and I was so happy to find your list of gluten free Burts Bees products. I contacted the company and they told me the same exact thing they told you. But, that left me to search every product and every ingredient. I am willing to do that, but then I found your blog and your list and I REALLY appreciate it!!!

I am ordering the lip products, and the Radiance wash sounds awesome!! have you used the moisturizers and serum that go with it? I don’t know if they are safe or not. I will check them out.

Thank you again for this awesome blog!! The plethora of information here is invaluable!

You are awesome!

Thanks, Daniella. I appreciate your kind words and I’m glad you found the site to be so helpful! I am using the Day Radiance Moisturizer right now.

RE: Mary Kay products:
I had a consultant call the company for me and Mary Kay would not verify that any of their products are gluten free. They said that although the products may not have gluten ingredients listed, they have no way to know if there is cross contamination.
That did not sit well with me so I threw all of my MK in the trash. Very sad day. But if you think about it, if a company does not have enough control over the manufacturing of their products so they can tell you whether it might be contaminated or not, then their manufacturing process is somewhat questionable, don’t you think? There are plenty of companies who care enough about their products and customers to actually know what is in them. I’d rather support their business.
Arbonne is one of those companies who has a clear listing of their gluten free products and it includes just about all of their line. I don’t currently use their products but have in the past and they are wonderful. If you want to support a friend in direct sales, this would be a good one. Hope this is helpful.
