Here is the email response I got regarding my Body Shop face wash & lotion. This is a really long email. The products in question have no gluten ingredients (no triticum, etc.) but do have ambiguous things like fragrance. So would you use their face wash? Or does anyone have any other info about Body Shop? This is NOT Body Shop at home-just their regular store. Thank you!!

Dear Customer,

Thank you for your email and interest in The Body Shop! Unfortunately, we

currently do not have a compiled list or database that we can query for

specific ingredients in all our products.

Gluten is a protein found in wheat, oats, barley and rye which is found in

many products. The reason we recommend consulting a physician is due to the

fact there is no way for us to predict how an ingredient will affect

individuals. Each person is different and an item not containing gluten may

have come from a vendor that produces products that do contain gluten in the

same machine. Therefore, there may be a very small trace left behind in the

machine after cleaning. Depending on the severity of your reaction this

trace amount may not affect you, where another person may have a very bad

reaction. Gluten is not tested for due to the fact that is used

intentionally in some products.

All our product formulations are subject to careful evaluation by

independent external safety assessors and adhere to strict criteria.

Customers concerned about an allergy should carefully read the product label

to ensure that the product contains no ingredients they are allergic to. We

include a full ingredient list on our products, which would identify a known

gluten ingredient in the product. Please know that the ingredients to all

our products, in addition to being listed on our products, can now be

obtained from the website www.thebodyshop.com. Once you have selected the

item you are interested in, click on the "All Ingredients" tab found below

the product.

I hope this information helps. Feel free to contact us again if you have any

further questions or concerns about the products or customer service at The

Body Shop. We sincerely hope you will continue to make The Body Shop® your

brand of choice for personal care products!

Sincerely,

Genetta Bullock

Customer Care Coordinator

    • LOL yeah miralax was a joke for me WHOLE BOTTLE NOTHING, doctors thought I was lying. I found the ONLY thing that works for me is Magnesium Citrate, the bottled fizzy stuff for colon preps. Daily maintenance requires me to take Natural Vitality Calm daily, you dose to tolerance start off at 1/4 tsp 1-2 times a day and up it to the full dose over a week. If you get loose stools cut it back. You dose to tolerance with magnesium and with this disease a issue with absorbing it is very common, causing chronic constipation in many and requiring supplementation.
      Try going to a whole foods only diet for a while with soups and stews with veggies and meats also. Nut butters and avocados help lube up the system. I use some other seeds etc to add in bulk but I think we need to focus on clearing your out first before regulating.
    • I would say no even then....it belongs in its own little corner in hell. We have had members get sick from cross contact touching and handling paper mache, playdough, and dry wall spackle containing wheat then touching their mouths, or food.....heck you can inhale the powder from the sanding spackle and have it get trapped in the mucus in you respiratory tract to run down your stomach and make you sick......has happened to a few on many occasions.
    • Cross reactivity is a bit of a myth type thing, but we do get food sensitivities and intolerance issues that do creep up and they are always different for each person. A food diary and keeping track of what causes symptoms is what you need to do. Here is a true gluten avoidance list and a article on food sensitivities.

    • Me too. I still get transient lower back pain occasionally when my bladder or colon is full. It goes away immediately on voiding. Regardless of anything other diseases you may have, being wheat free gives you relief so even if not Celiac you are Non Celiac Wheat Sensitive. There are over 200 symptoms that are improved with GFD gluten free diet. Google it. It is an impressive list. In any case, while it is good to have a diagnosis, there is only one treatment, do not eat wheat and deal with the inevitable malnutrition damage.(think Biafra babies 1970.) Most will improve over time. Whatever doesn't improve should be investigated to be safe, but realize that recovery may take years. Wheat flour used should be limited to Paper Mache sculpture and library paste.
