Carrie - I emailed Olay today, and this is what they had to say in their response:

Question: Is Olay Compete gluten free? What Olay products are gluten free....

Discussion Thread

---------------------------------------------------------------

We know Celiac is a serious disease, so we want to give you clear information regarding the use of our beauty care products. If wheat and/or gluten aren't directly added to a product by us, these ingredients won't be listed on our packages. Like many companies, we often purchase the scents for fragranced products from outside suppliers, and the components of these substances are proprietary information belonging to those companies. Therefore it's possible that a very small amount (generally parts per million) of gluten may be present.

We sought advice from physicians; they told us it would be very unlikely a person with Celiac disease would have a reaction from a trace amount of gluten coming into contact with his skin or hair. This is because wheat, rye, barley and/or gluten generally cause symptoms when they're ingested. Since our beauty care products are designed to be used externally on the skin, their use shouldn't be an issue for someone with this disease.

Since gluten sensitivity can vary among people, it would be best if you consulted with your physician about the use of all types of consumable goods, if you haven't already. You might even consider using one of our fragrance free products that doesn't list gluten or wheat extracts on the label.

I personally have a hard time believing that physicians would tell them that it is ok to absorb gluten through the skin or hair. People are always touching their skin and hair, and could very easily transfer the gluten to their mouth. This is very unfortunate because I have been using Olay Complete, and it does a very good job for me.

To say a doctor told them using it externally won't hurt people with Celiac or gluten intolerant. They are either lying or have one of those many extremely stupid doctors.
