Gluten and Beauty: Why is it Essential to Opt for Gluten-Free Lipsticks for Your Health?

In a world where health and well-being are a priority, we must pay attention not only to what we eat, but also what we apply to our skin, especially our lips. Did you know that some lipsticks can contain gluten and how this could affect your body? Join us as we explore the relationship between lipsticks and gluten, and why it's essential to opt for gluten-free lipsticks, even if you don't have celiac disease.

How much lipstick ends up in our stomach?

It's natural to worry about how much lipstick inadvertently ends up in our stomach. Studies suggest that the average person could ingest a significant amount of lipstick over their lifetime. It is estimated that a woman could consume up to 2 kg (4.4 pounds) of lipstick in her lifetime due to involuntary ingestion through contact with lips and food, especially if lipsticks are frequently applied.

The potential dangers of gluten in lipsticks

In addition to concerns about lipstick ingestion, there is growing concern about how gluten in personal care products could affect our health, even if we are not celiac. Here are some important considerations:

  1. Gluten sensitivity and autoimmune diseases:

Gluten can be problematic for those with non-celiac gluten sensitivity. Although not fully understood, it has been suggested that exposure to gluten, including through personal care products, could trigger gastrointestinal symptoms and other reactions in sensitive people. Additionally, there has been speculation about possible links between gluten and autoimmune diseases, such as lupus and rheumatoid arthritis.

  1. Neurological diseases:
Although research continues, some studies have explored the possibility that gluten may play a role in the development of neurological diseases, such as Alzheimer's, Neurogluten, Ataxia, Tourette Syndrome and autism. While the evidence is still limited and more research is needed, it's an additional reason to be cautious with products containing gluten, even lipsticks.

Choosing gluten-free lipsticks is a smart decision to protect your long-term health. At LE BON BEE, we are committed to providing you with high-quality lipsticks, gluten-free and made with natural ingredients that enhance your beauty and take care of your well-being.
