So I got the letter from Fructis, because I called them about a new product they have out. The lady said that they didnt have information for it yet cause it was new, but she would let me know what she found out. Here is the letter.......

Now I thought that Maltodextrin was ok..? right? And what about Dextrin and Dextrin Palmitate? And I have no idea what this is Cyclodextrin.....Could you guys check out the list and let me know what you think. Cause here is a company that states all their shampoo and conditioners are gluten-free. Most of the products that I use are too....it would be kind of scary if they have stuff on the list that they think are not safe but really are, granted it wouldnt hurt us, but better safe then sorry.

Thanks :)

Matodextrin and dextrins are fine. The way it is worded is a little odd. However it says; " This list may also be used by the celiac patient to identify gluten-containing ingredients. This list gives the standard industry names for ingredients as found in the International Cosmetic Ingredient Dictionary." It doesn't mean all of them are grain carriers.

I thought Maltodextrin could be from corn or from wheat, so it could potentially be bad????

Ok, so they aren't saying that these things ARE in their product...they are just letting you know what to look for?? Hm, maybe they want you to read the label yourself? Ha...Maybe I am reading this wrong....

I agree with Tiffjake. I got the exact same list from L'oreal when I asked about a shampoo I was using. A good CYA on their part - they're saying "this is what you can't have, read your labels".

It looks to me like it may be an "auto-response", meaning that it is an automatically generated email response to your question, while they look it up in the meantime & get back to you.

At least I hope that's what it is, because if not, that means I have to stop using their products & let them know why (and I really don't want to do that because I really like their products, but I will if that was not an auto-response).

In the US, maltodextrin must be made with corn when talking about food products--BUT, there is no such ruling for anything other then foods, personal products, otc drugs and perscription drugs are not regulated in the same ways. Deb

Doesn't that mean that those ingredients ARE used in their products?

Someone posted about Garnier Fructis somewhere else -- they told her that the shampoo and cream rinses were absolutely gluten-free, but individual styling products needed to have a phone call to the company to be sure . . . can't remember what thread it was on, but I know it was a couple of months ago . . . .

No... it means that if the ingredients listed on the product contain any of the ingredients in the list they provided... then that particular product is not gluten free... more or less...

Now I just checked my curl cream, my volumizing spray, my quick fix hair spray and my long and strong leave in... and none of the ingredients in the list are listed on those particular products...

Doesn't that mean that those ingredients ARE used in their products?
