I emailed them after hours and received an email back within 12 hours-and it was helpful :o


Hello Rachelle,

Thank you for contacting us as to whether or not our products have gluten derived ingredients. We understand how important this information is for you.

At Beiersdorf, we strive to offer our consumers the best products possible, and therefore we may reformulate them when improvement is possible. The information we give you today regarding our ingredients may not be true if we reformulate a product next year.

If you have concerns about Gluten and its derivatives, we recommend avoiding all products with ingredients derived from wheat, rye, barley and oats. The ingredient names are:

TRITICUM VULGARE (wheat bran)
SECALE CEREALE (rye seed extract)
HORDEUM VULGARE (barley)
AVENA SATIVA (oat bran)

Although our products may not contain the above ingredients, it is always possible that one of our raw materials may contain traces of gluten because its presence is not excluded by our raw material specifications.

Please call us at 1-800-227-4703 if you have any other questions or comments. Our phone lines are open Monday to Friday, 9:30 am to 4:30 pm EST.

Thank you again for your E-mail.

Cordially,

Sam
Consumer Relations
Beiersdorf Inc.
