Shout Out To The Pros

Recommended Posts

Hi: I bought this shampoo called "Yes to carrots" it looked safe enough but I emailed the manufacturer and they said it should be ok as they use an anti-oxidant in the formula--so what, that kills gluten? Here's the list of ingredients:

water, sodium coceth sulfate, magnesium chloride,Dead Sea water, sweet almond oil, olive oil, jojoba oil, propanediol, aloe barbadenis leaf extract, daucus carrot seed oil, daucus carota juice, pumpkin juice, sweet potato extract, cucumis melon extract, citrus aurantium dulcis fruit extract, honey extract, fragrance, algae extracts, silt, niacinimide, vitamin E, ginkgo biloba leaf extract, benzyl alcohol, dehydroacetic acid, pomegranate peel estract.

What do you think? Thanks! L.A.

That is a new one. I am not aware of anything that "kills" gluten. Hmmmm and whole wheat has antioxidents (i.e. vitamin E). I wouldnt trust it personally. But that is just me.


GLUTEN FREE 4/4/08. LEGUME/SOY FREE 5/15/08. YEAST FREE. CORN FREE. GRAIN FREE. DAIRY FREE. I am eating all meats, eggs, veggies, fruits, squash, nuts and seeds. I just keep getting better every day. :)

It is so frustrating when you can't get a straight answer from the company that makes the product! You would think they would know what's in it. Argh!

I always call and ask what the source of the vitamin E is--it can be derived from wheat, and this is more likely to be the case with topical products, I've found.

It sounds like their phone person is a bit clueless, because anti-oxidants have no effect on gluten. I woder if they even know what gluten is?

Nevertheless, I agree with Patti that you should call and ask for the source of the Vitamin E. Don't be surprised if they either don't know or tell you that it's OK because it's "natural" or "organic."

Also, because of off-shoring and other reasons, companies often have no idea what is actually in the products they expect us to use in and on our bodies. Boggles the mind, it does! :blink:

This is the response I got--should be good to go. Also, I have discovered another company that has many gluten free products for hair/body etc. Check out greenbeaver.com (yep it's Canadian eh )

Hello Again Lori

My apologies!! Error from my side!

All the products which contain wheat derivatives are not Gluten free. The Yes To Carrots Pampering Carrot Juice Shampoo however is Gluten free.
