Gluten Free Body Care @ Whole Foods?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I recently bought the 365 everyday herbal mint scent of shampoo from Whole Foods. It's basically their generic brand. I love the smell and the fact that the products are natural and sulfide free. But I read on a different post that the 365 shampoo is not gluten free.

Here's the ingredients:

Ingredients: Aqua (water), sodium myristoyl sarcosinate, cocamidopropyl hydroxysultaine,

disodium cocoamphodipropionate, sodium cocoamphoacetate, sodium chloride, glucono- lactone, sodium benzoate, phenethyl alcohol, glyceryl caprylate, citric

acid, hydrolyzed soy protein, panthenol, arnica montana (arnica flower extract), thymus vulgaris (thyme extract), polysorbate 20, rosmarinus officinalis (rosemary oil),

mentha piperita (peppermint oil), mentha spicata (spearmint oil), mentha arvensis (cornmint oil), citrus medica limonum (lemon oil), lavandula angustifolia (lavender oil),

thymus vulgaris (thyme oil).

anybody see anything in there that means wheat, barley, rye or oats??? I do not see anything....

I am just hoping that there isn't anything as I bought the shampoo, conditioner AND lotion!

They had some other shampoos (dessert essence brand) listed as gluten free with a little tag, but when I read the ingredients, they had hydrogenated wheat protein in them. I wasn't so sure about that!!

Help!! Can I safely use 365 brand??

That particular one is on their gluten-free list, so I bought it! I had an immediate skin reaction. I'm not sure if it is from the gluten or something else. I also bought it because it seemed pretty natural. I also use the conditioner (non-scented) and I am completely fine with that!

On a side note, once a week I use a dandruff shampoo that is also gluten-free (confirmed by the manufacturer) and I get the same skin reaction down my back and chest. Oddly enough, neither product has anything in common that would be considered an allergen! Go figure!

I am hoping that someone on here will reply with a list! I saw one once on a gluten/casein free site, but can't find it again and didn't print it out like I do most things! :( Sorry!

Good luck!
