Jergens Can't Guarantee...

I'm not really betting that the Jergens products that I've been using for years are the source of my recent discomfort, however in trying to narrow the field, I did phone their 1-800 line.
The girl I spoke to said that if I (we) had to avoid products containing gluten, then she would recommend I don't use their products. :( She is going to email me an ingredients list for the cream soap, bar soap and hand lotion that I"ve been using all along. At least I can look at it and see what the likelihood of contamination is...

Anyway, does anyone have a gluten-free suggestion for a substitue for these products?? I'm in Canada, and I don't mind buying store brands... being in business with animals we're CONSTANTLY washing, and therefore the need for moisturizers is increased as well.

As always, your help is appreciated. :P

We urge all doctors to take time to listen to your patients.. don't "isolate" symptoms but look at the whole spectrum. If a patient tells you s/he feels as if s/he's falling apart and "nothing seems to be working properly", chances are s/he's right!

Hi Tam;
I've been using Jergens as well. Never even gave it much thought. Like you I've been having problems ... I do use it more in the cold weather, seems to dry out the skin big time. Let me know when you get those ingredients! :huh:
