Here's a message I got from Dove today when I emailed them asking if Dove Sensitive soap was gluten free, just thought I'd share:

Hi,

Thanks for writing!

We do not specifically test our products for the presence of gluten, a sticky protein found in some grains such as wheat. Gluten may be present in products that contain derivatives of wheat, oat, rye, and barley.

In labeling our products, our company follows the guidelines established by the International Nomenclature for Cosmetics; Ingredients (INCI) process. Therefore, if we use an ingredient derived from a grain such as wheat, oat, rye, and/or barley, those names will appear on the label. One common example is "Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein". If you see this on the label, the material was derived from wheat, so the product may contain gluten.

Thank you for your interest!

Your friends at Dove

Thanks for posting this.

I have no visible symptoms (other then the fact that I'm doubled over in pain on the floor, or running to/from the bathroom, or cannot move my fingers/hips/shoulders!) from my celiac, so I haven't done the inventory of household items, just food. Dove is a popular brand in my house, knowing that they label properly is great news!!!!

You're funny, Michael. I get this visible image of you shooting off to use the restroom.

I'm surprised at how good some companies have been about getting back to me promptly!

Hello,

Same here. This is what I received:
