Opal

Nature's Gate Tea Tree Shampoo

Recommended Posts

Has anyone tried this product? Amazon and many supermarkets list this as Gluten Free, but when I called the company, the woman said she could not assure any product was gluten-free and that they use a Hops extract in this shampoo.

I'm looking for a good gluten-free, paraben free shampoo. I thought this was my ticket, but now I am unsure.

Thanks!

Hops are gluten-free. Giving an "assurance" would require actual testing of the product and its ingredients for possible contamination, which most companies do not do.

I don't see anything in the ingredients that would be a concern. Even though they don't test for gluten that doesn't mean it isn't safe. I would try this myself and since it doesn't have soy ( a major allergen for me) I'll have to check it out. Does it smell nice?
