Why use gluten free makeup? Well gluten is a protein found in wheat, barley and rye and can lead to Celiac Disease which is chronic inflation of the intestines. Makeup manufactures use gluten as a binding agent. Using lipstick and mascara that has gluten in it can absorb into your body. There are cosmetic companies that only produce gluten free makeup such as Ecco Bella, Bare Minerals, and Afterglow Cosmetics.
Using gluten based mascara can be absorbed into your body when mascara flakes into your eyes so if you wanting to get away from gluten in your life choosing a gluten free mascara would be a good start. I am going to list some popular brands of gluten free mascara.
