Are Mary Kay products gluten free?

I just started using Mary Kay products about 2 months ago and I love the way it makes my skin look and feel!

After my recent issue with gluten and bladder inflammation, I thought I'd better take a closer look at all products I've been using.

So far, I'm not finding a lot online and will have to contact my Mary kay friend but I did find this link and I don't think I am using any of the products that do contain gluten.

So many things to pay attention to with Celiac Disease!

Almost two weeks and no bladder pain!

This is a first for me in almost a year! I am able to drink brewed coffee with no problem but no more Starbucks Mocha Lattes! The end of a 10 year+ addiction! My body and my wallet are happier!

Dominos introduces gluten free pizza Australia

Well, here's yet another country that acknowledges the presence of Celiac Disease - Australia. Dominos is introducing gluten free pizza there. No explanation on why the U.S.A. is left out:
In the long run, I won't complain. Baked goods are fattening, whether they have gluten or not.

Have you had issues with Celiac Disease and bladder problems?

It's been quite some time since I have posted here. This is largely due to the many things going on at my home and my job. That's another story.

I'm writing today about a recent discovery I believe I've made, more or less on my own, regarding the connection between bladder issues and gluten.

I've been struggling with monthly bladder infections and/or pain since January 2009. All along, I wondered if there was a connection to this with gluten in my diet somewhere.

Luckily, I stumbled upon this article at tonight. The author, an RN, wrote about her issues with gluten and bladder pain/illness here:

Right now, I am trying to figure out what the source of gluten is in my regular routine. I remembered that I actually had a bladder infection just before I had my hip replacement surgery at the end of July 2008.

I have wondered all along if I should be giving up my daily Starbuck's mocha latte but I didn't know for sure that a simple flavored drink like that could have a connection to gluten.

I'm going to try to look deeper at some of the information found at this link at and see what happens if I make the change and drop the mochas from my diet.

If this works then there must be some cross contamination issues going on.
It is interesting for me to note that Starbucks introduced the Vivano drinks in July 2008:
