Wait a second!!!
This is some troubling news. And quite frankly i am extremely frustrated! I had contacted Revlon's customer service about the lip butters that I swear by and on the phone they told me the product had no gluten derived ingredients. Yesterday and today I was feeling a slight reaction, but had no clue why. I blamed it on stress because my hubby and I are in the process of buying a house. Until I remembered one thing, I used a lip butter yesterday. I don't wear lipstick frequently because the office I work in is quite relaxed and I almost feel "overdressed" with a lot of makeup. I looked back at the ingredients on the product and Tocopherol Acetate is an ingredient. Now I am very confused. I know not all Tocopherol and it's relatives are wheat derived but how am I, the consumer, supposed to figure out the difference. I had been staying away from all products with this ingredient, so I'll be staying away from these now too, until I can get a better answer. It is just too much of a coincidence and I do not feel comfortable using a product with that ingredient. [quiet sobs] so long precious lip butters.
