Hello Bridget. I apologize for the delay in my response, but I wanted to thoroughly research the answer before I wrote back to you. Other customers have also asked us this same question, letting us know that occasionally extracts have a grain alcohol base, and if that alcohol base were a wheat alcohol, that would be a problem for those who are gluten intolerant. Therefore, we contacted the suppliers of our extracts and they have confirmed to us that our extracts are gluten free. Currently, all of the extracts that Badger uses are called Supercritical CO2 extracts. This is a harmless process, that does not involve hexane solvents, nor grain alcohol bases. It is the purest form of extract that you can find - after undergoing a process where the raw plant is mixed in a tight chamber with CO2 gases (CO2 is the same thing that adds the fizz to soda), the end product is just the essential oil of the product, plus the plant resins. So, it is actually a more complete product than just an essential oil alone.

Because none of our other ingredients, nor the packaging, have gluten, I can safely say that all of our products are gluten-free. Therefore, there is no need for me to send you a list of all of our gluten-free products, because that list would be too long! This also means that you do not need to worry about a "dirty" product line, as there are no gluten-containing products.

We understand your caution regarding the issue of gluten-free products, and we will soon be posting this question on our Frequently Asked Questions page on our website as we believe that other customers might share your concerns.

Let us know if you have additional questions.

Warm greetings from the Badger Mines,

Somewhere in that ProActive info was there a real statement on their gluten-free status? I could not get past all the names in the list to read it!

I use ProActiv and I checked out the ingredients on the bottle when I first started the gluten-free diet. None of them appear to have gluten. Not when checked against the list of forbidden ingredients on this site anyways.
