Frequently Asked Questions
Are All Red Apple Lipstick Cosmetics Gluten Free?
Red Apple Lipstick is a dedicated gluten free cosmetics company. To that end, we operate much differently than a normal cosmetics company. A large portion of our energy is dedicated to producing new gluten free formulas, lab testing, special storage procedures and making new friends within the gluten free community. Every product that Red Apple Lipstick sells is 100% gluten free. As in 0ppm.
What Is Gluten?
Gluten is a protein found in products processed from wheat, barley and rye. It is often used in cosmetics as a thickening or binding agent
Why should I be worried about Gluten Free Cosmetics?
It's estimated that 1 in 133 people have a sensitivity to gluten. Most don't even know it! Those with celiac disease cannot come in contact with gluten at all without severe consequences. Symptoms include: abdominal cramping, excess gas, diarrhea and/or constipation, fatty stools, anemia, weight loss even when eating a lot, delayed puberty, mouth ulcers, joint pain, osteoporosis, fatigue, migraines, numbness in hands or feet, gall bladder malfunction, essential vitamin deficiencies, etc… Bottom line-gluten isn't healthy for anyone. We have an entire article dedicated to this subject, you should take 5 minutes and read it.
Sho nuff! (that's slang for yes, all red apple cosmetics are 100% vegan.)
Are Red Apple Lipstick cosmetics paraben free?
Yes. Red Apple Lipstick is a dedicated paraben free cosmetics company.
Should I worry about paraben my cosmetics?
Yes, clearly you should. Parabens are a class of chemicals used as preservatives. They have been strongly linked to breast cancer tumors and have the ability to mimic estrogen, a known hormone that plays a major role in breast cancer development. They may also cause skin irritation. Why in the world would you want that near, on or in your mouth!
Does Red Apple Lipstick make Soy Free Cosmetics?
All Red Apple cosmetics are also soy free. Our regular lip pencils do have a small amount of a NON GMO Soy Lecithin in them, but that's it.
I'm severe Celiac. Are Red Apple Lipstick gluten free cosmetics really safe for me?
100%. You should never have to worry about any Red Apple cosmetic. They are all lab tested to include spot testing, batch testing and rigorous procedures to keep cross contamination out!
Are Red Apple Lipsticks mineral based?
Yes. At this writing, all red apple cosmetics are mineral based makeups. Mineral makeup is non-comedogenic (it won't clog pores) and gives you more flexibility to adjust the color depth!
What is your return policy?
We want you to love our makeup. If for any reason you don't, we offer a 100% Money Back in 30 days, no questions asked! You can visit our return page here
Is your lipgloss sticky?
No! Our one of a kind, gluten free lip glosses are silky smooth and moisturizing without the sticky, goopy mess.
Does your makeup have a scent?
Our regular lipstick line has a faint fragrance to it, the peppermints have a fresh minty aroma and the Summer Passion line has a faint fruit scent. Other products do not have a scent.
Do you ship worldwide?
We do! If you need a shipment sent to any place other than our website allows, please contact us
Where are Red Apple Lipstick products made?
All Red Apple cosmetics are produced and made right here in the USA. All ingredient suppliers are also US based.
No way Jose! We don't understand why this is even a question.
Please please make a lipstick that will truly stay on ALL DAY. I am tired of the claims of "long wear", or the 24 hour kind full of toxic and drying ingredients.
It's impossible. Any claim of a lipstick lasting for 24 hours is preposterous to begin with much less the thought of the horrible chemicals it would take to accomplish this. While our lipsticks do last a long time, and even longer with proper lip care and preperation, they were never intended to last for days and days of wear. Understand that a cleanly made lipstick is not going to possess the chemicals needed to stay on your body for 24 hours.
How long does a Red Apple Lipstick last?
All Red Apple Lipsticks possess the power to last a long time. Proper lip care and prep is essential. Exfoliation and hydration coupled with application techniques make a huge impact.
Does Red Apple Lipstick contain lead?
Good god no!
How should I store bulk lipsticks?
In your refrigerator. They will last a very long time there.
Do you sell gift certificates?
We do! Right up at the top of this page, you will find a link in the black bar that says Gift Certificates.
I heard that I shouldn't store my lip products in my bathroom. Is this true?
Yes, that is correct. The basic issue you are combating here is mold. Hot steamy showers are a makeup killer.
