Do you need gluten free lipstick?
If you suffer from celiac disease, or are gluten sensitive/intolerant, then gluten free lipstick is a must because you ingest a lot of it – think of how often you lick or bite your lip. And it only takes a small amount of gluten to trigger an reaction.
As a celiac myself, I had constant problems with my lips breaking out, before I figured out it was the lipsticks that were causing it. After going gluten free, no more issues with my lips!
So if you use gluten-containing lip products but find you continue to have symptoms, consider switching to gluten-free – you’ll find it helps.
