The Benefits of Using Gluten Free Makeup for Your Beauty Routine

According to researchers, one in 133 people have celiac disease. This is a genetic condition that causes those who have it to be intolerant or full-blown allergic to anything that contains gluten. 

Gluten is a common protein found in wheat, barley, rye, and even our makeup! That is why those who are either gluten resistant or have gluten sensitivity are looking for products that have absolutely no gluten in their ingredients at all. 

An individual should never consume the makeup they put on their face. However, all it takes for some people is a flake of makeup accidentally getting in their mouth to trigger their gluten intolerance. 

Those who live a gluten-free lifestyle know that this is a problem that stems from your digestive system. This means that you would have to consume your makeup products that have gluten in them. 

For now, the gluten-based makeup products you are using shouldnotseep into your pores and cause a negative reaction. 

At ForChics, we are extremely cautious about what ingredients we put in our products. We make sure that we use all-natural, clean ingredients, so you won’t have to worry -- even if you are not gluten-resistant! 

What Is Gluten?

 

 

As we have previously mentioned, gluten is a basic protein found in various everyday products. But it is usually found in wheat, rye, or barley. Claims of being gluten intolerant were found back in 1945 when bread was being produced as one of the main bases of most meals. 

Unfortunately, being gluten-resistant or having celiac disease means there is a bigger allergy issue at hand. 

Being gluten-free and having an allergic reaction to gluten is your body having an allergic reaction to wheat itself. Although it seems harmless, this affects about 1% of the population. 

Some of the side effects of digesting gluten when you are allergic to it can include:

  • Indigestion 
  • Headache
  • Nausea  
  • Skin Rashes 
  • Chronic Fatigue 
  • Stress and Tension
  • Constipation 
  • Loose Stools 
  • Stomach Ache
  • Intolerance to Lactose 
  • Irritation 
  • Being Bruised More Easily 
  • Lowered Bone Density 

If you have an extremely sensitive allergic reaction to gluten, we understand just how important gluten-free makeup products can mean for you. It is not always easy to figure out what makeup brands use gluten-free ingredients and those that are not, but hopefully, this becomes a priority.

Gluten-Free Makeup FAQs

 

 

This could either be your first time finding out about gluten-free makeup, or you are someone who is actively looking for gluten-free makeup products. Regardless of why you are here, we have put together some answers to the most frequently asked questions regarding gluten-free makeup.  

Is It More Expensive?

Although gluten-free makeup is more difficult to find, that does not necessarily mean that it is more expensive. As time goes on, more beauty companies pick up on the need for all-natural ingredients in their products. 

The more natural the ingredients, the more likely they are to be gluten-free. 

Check up on your favorite makeup brands and see what they are up to in regards to providing gluten-free makeup products. Prices should not vary, but if they do, make sure to check out some more affordable products. 

Does It Make a Difference in the Finished Look? 

 

 

Most of the time, makeup products should stay consistent with the ones you are already used to. This is not the case when you are using products that have harmful ingredients in them. Remember, although they may be less expensive, chances are there is a reason for that. 

You always want to make sure that you look over the ingredients in the products you use just in case they trigger an allergic reaction. Gluten-free or not, the finished makeup look should end up as you imagined. 

Do I Have To Use Gluten-Free Makeup if I Have Celiac Disease?

Celiac disease is a condition that affects about 1% of the national population. However, even within that 1%, there are different factors. Every physical body is different and reacts in various ways, even if they share the same condition. 

For some people, all it takes is a smudge of the wrong lipstick getting in their mouths to trigger their gluten-resistant digestive system. For others, they would need to consume an entire cheese pizza by themselves. It really depends on the person. 

So while you don’t necessarilyhave to use gluten-free makeup if you have celiac disease, it is entirely up to you and what you are comfortable with. 

After all, nobody knows more about how their body functions and operates than you do, so make sure you make the best decision for yourself!

Is There a Point to Using Gluten-Free Makeup? 

Aside from the obvious stomach problems this could save some gluten-resistant people, there is the guarantee that you are using products that have good quality ingredients in them. 

Your beauty routine may significantly improve if you use all-natural products for each and every single thing you use regularly. 

Ingredients are more important than you realize, so make sure you arealways reading the label for any warnings or specific elements that are used in whatever product you are considering using.

Not only are they accessible and effective, but we also prioritize only the best ingredients in our products. We are looking out for you, your natural lashes, and the big beautiful world we live in. 

Our haircare treatments use the power of the natural properties of plants that work hand-in-hand with science to promote clean and gentle hair growth. This means that each and every single one of our products is free from synthetic chemicals, fillers, parabens, and preservatives -- guaranteed! 

Since we use all-natural ingredients, all of our products are gluten-free. We are committed to creating well-thought-out modern hair-care products that serve to empower and embrace natural beauty. If you are looking for affordable and effective gluten-free makeup, then we’ve got the products for you! 

 

Eyelash Enhancing Serum

 

 

One of our most popular products is our all-natural Eyelash Enhancing Serum. This serum is made from deeply nourishing and natural ingredients that would not upset even the most sensitive of gluten-free digestive systems. 

This serum is perfect for those of you who are looking to grow and strengthen your natural lashes. If you use this serum two times a day on a regular basis, you should begin to see results in as little as two weeks! 

For those of you out there who are gluten-free or even just looking for more sustainable hair care treatment products, this is the serum for you. 

Better Than Falsies Mascara

 

 

Another one of our high-demand products is our Better Than Falsies Mascara. This mascara is unlike any other out there. One bottle is only $23, which is a lot more inexpensive than other name-brand mascaras out there. 

Not only is it affordable, but this mascara will make sure that your lashes are getting the falsies effect without the trouble of getting lash extensions. This mascara will ensure that every coat is evenly spread onto each lash with absolutely no clumping, flaking, or loss of natural lashes. 

Usually, harsh waterproof or regular mascara rips off a couple of eyelashes in the process of removing the gunk. That is not the case with our Better Than Falsies Mascara.

Your eyelashes will thank us later! 

Eyebrow Enhancing Serum

 

 

The Eyebrow Enhancing Serum we offer is one of our ForBrow products. This 100% cruelty-free and vegan formula works with your natural brows to grow and strengthen them naturally. 

You can recover thinning eyebrows and over-plucking without worrying about the kinds of ingredients in the product you are using. This serum is entirely based on natural ingredients that will promote the thicker brows that you deserve.

If you aren’t satisfied with your results after 60 days, you can qualify for our money-back growth guarantee promise. 

However, make sure you are keeping track of your growth progress! Take pictures of your brows on Day 1, - 30, and - 60 to qualify for our growth guarantee. 

This is always a good rule of thumb to use when using growth serums of any kind. Tracking your progress can help you figure out whether or not certain products are actually working for you or if they are just wasting your time and money. 

Eyebrow Fill Pen

 

 

The Eyebrow Fill Pen is another product that goes perfectly with the matching serum. Much like the Better Than Falsies Mascara works with the Eyelash Enhancing Serum, the Eyebrow Fill Pen works amazingly when paired with our Eyebrow Enhancing Serum. 

This product was designed to make the most realistic-looking hairs straight from the tip of the pen. Without Eyebrow Fill Pen, it has never been easier to fill in your brows and keep them looking fabulous all day long. This particular product can last up to 24 hours after application! 

There will be no more smudging or fading, even if you have been lying under the sun all day. Unlike some other eyebrow fillers, this product is free from damaging dyes that can sometimes cause pain. You will get natural, real hair-like strokes within seconds. Plus, it is gluten-free! 

Bundle Kit

Our new and improved formula is what makes this duo the best out there! The Bundle Kit comes with our infamous Eyelash Enhancing Serum as well as our Eyebrow Enhancing Serum. If you are looking for affordable, gluten-free hair growth treatment serums, this is the ultimate bundle. 

You can try our serums and apply them to your eyelid and eyebrow at least twice a day. 

If you need a consistent way of implementing this into your daily routine, we suggest adding it to your morning and nighttime skin-care routine. This is the best and most effective way to make sure you are using these serums regularly. 

The key is consistency. If you are applying every other day or only once a day, chances are you will not see the results you want in the amount of time promised. Make sure to use these gluten-, paraben-, and sulfate-free products as directed to get the look of your dreams. 

The Lash Bundle

 

 

The Lash Bundle is specifically created for those  looking to focus on the growth of their lashes. The Lash Bundle comes with our amazing Eyelash Enhancing Serum, as well as the Better Than Falsies Mascara. 

We promise that you will see fuller, denser, and longer-looking lashes within 30 days of using these products. 

The Ultimate Kit

 

 

Last but certainly not least is The Ultimate Kit. This is the kit that will have you ready for anything and everything. It includes our Eyelash Enhancing Serum, the Eyebrow Enhancing Serum, and our Better Than Falsies Mascara. 

These all-natural products work amazingly on their own, but it is unbelievable when they are used together. Plus, with every purchase, you get a FREE travel bag.
