Hi Brandy,

I answered a message from you earlier. I just wanted to reiterate, none of Procter & Gamble's cleaning products contain gluten. That would include: Bounce, Swiffer, Mr. Clean, Ivory Dishwashing Liquid, Ivory Snow laundry detergent, Dryel, Dreft, etc... I'm not going to answer each of your messages individually since this covers most of them.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for contacting us about several of our products, Brandy.

We know Celiac is a serious disease, so we want to give you clear information regarding the use of our beauty care products. If wheat and/or gluten aren't directly added to a product by us, these ingredients won't be listed on our packages. Like many companies, we often purchase the scents for fragranced products from outside suppliers, and the components of these substances are proprietary information belonging to those companies. Therefore it's possible that a very small amount (generally parts per million) of gluten may be present.

We sought advice from physicians; they told us it would be very unlikely a person with Celiac disease would have a reaction from a trace amount of gluten coming into contact with his skin or hair. This is because wheat, rye, barley and/or gluten generally cause symptoms when they're ingested. Since our beauty care products are designed to be used externally on the skin, their use shouldn't be an issue for someone with this disease.

Since gluten sensitivity can vary among people, it would be best if you consulted with your physician about the use of all types of consumable goods, if you haven't already. You might even consider using one of our fragrance free products that doesn't list gluten or wheat extracts on the label.

Thanks for getting in touch with us. I hope this response has been helpful to you. For more information about Celiac, you may want to check out http://celiac.com/ and http://celiac.org

Hope this helps.

Hi Brandy.

You'll be glad to know that ThermaCare heat wraps do not contain gluten. The ingredients in the heat cells are charcoal, iron powder, sodium chloride (salt), sodium thiosulfate and water.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for writing, Brandy.

While I don't have a list to send you, I can tell you that there is no gluten in any Vicks product!

Hope this helps.

Hello Ms. O'brien,

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. We do not maintain a
list of gluten free products as change control is not possible.

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

TRITICUM VULGARE
SECALE CEREALE
HORDEUM VULGARE
AVENA SATIVA

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.

We appreciate your taking the time to contact us.

Cordially,

Sam
Consumer Relations
Beiersdorf Inc.
