Dove Opinons

Recommended Posts

Hi guys -

I just purchased Dove moisturizing shampoo and conditioner. I like it. Do any of you other celiacs use any of the other Dove products succesfully - like the Pro-Age stuff, face cleaners, soaps, etc.?

I'd like your opinions.

Thanks again - A

I use Dove for almost all my products: facial lotion, body lotion, body wash, hairspray, frizz controller, and often their shampoos/conditioners. I like it a lot. They have a couple of face lotions with oats (I believe they are the sensitive skin varieties of products), but that's the only source of gluten I've seen in any of their products, and I use almost all their stuff, so I feel safe with their products. Plus, I have very dry skin/hair, and their products are very moisturizing--yea Dove!

I'm glad to hear this. I'm switching my products to Dove just because of their real women campaign.

I use Dove - they are a Unilever company and will always label the sources of all of their ingredients. I've only ever seen one with oats.

I have used their bath soaps and am fine. I can't use their shampoos and conditioners, they just are not strong enough for my hair, very few are. I find that Pantene, Aussie, and Fruitis are the only ones able to tame this tiger, with Pantene being my favorite.

Deb, I understand with what you're saying as I have hair that also needs a shampoo that is not as gentle as Dove; we need shampoo with "detergent" in it (that's what my beautician says and also says it strips my hair too much, but she doesn't understand that the "gentler" shampoos don't cleanse it as well).


Husband has Celiac Disease and

Husband misdiagnosed for 27 yrs -

The misdiagnosis was: IBS or colitis

Mis-diagnosed from 1977 to 2003 by various gastros including one of the largest,

most prestigious medical groups in northern NJ which constantly advertises themselves as

being the "best." This GI told him it was "all in his head."

Serious Depressive state ensued

Finally Diagnosed with celiac disease in 2003

Other food sensitivities: almost all fruits, vegetables, spices, eggs, nuts, yeast, fried foods, roughage, soy.

Needs to gain back at least 25 lbs. of the 40 lbs pounds he lost - lost a great amout of body fat and muscle

Developed neuropathy in 2005

Now has lymphadema 2006It is my opinion that his subsequent disorders could have been avoided had he been diagnosed sooner by any of the dozen or so doctors he saw between 1977 to 2003

I use Dove bar soap in the shower, and their Anti frizz creme. I got a free sample of their shampoo and conditioner for dark hair from their website, and liked it.

I'm currently using Thermasilk, and like it also.
