I do use Dove shampoo. If you search on this site you can get a better defined anwser, with confirmation.

The Gluten Free Product List is sparse for 2006, but it was gluten-free for 2004. Companies often change their ingred. to "improve" their products Let me see if they have a website as I have some at home.

www.dove.com..........or 1-800-761-3683

There ya go. If you get a reponse, please post so that others can know.

Hope this was helpful.

Dove is a company that clearly labels in all their products, so they will clearly list wheat, oats, barley, or rye. I use their shampoo, conditioner, hair spray, and frizz creme every day without problems. It smells great, too--I really like their stuff!

Dove will clearly list gluten on the container.

A lot of their hair products are gluten-free--I use their Anti-Frizz Creme. Just check the bottle.

I use a lot of Dove products, because I find them most gentle (up until now, I hadn't needed to worry about gluten content.) None of the Dove products I use have any ingredients lists on them...shampoo, antiperspirant, moisturizers and facial cleansing products do not have complete ingredients lists. Is the requirement to list ingredients on cosmetics different in Canada than in the US?

I have been wondering the same thing. By using Dove shampoo and conditioner I am going on faith here, that the info I am getting from this site is accurate. Because the ingredients aren't listed on Dove products here. But since I really reacted to the products I was using before (who were all natural, and clearly listed wheat germ oil), and have been fine with Dove, I believe it is gluten-free (and free of salicylates, too).

I have used Dove products for over a year and have had great luck. So, a year ago when I checked the products were clearly labeled, if it had gluten it would list it. I have not checked recently.

I have never had problems with Dove and I have problems with others though it may be a different product in Europe (or not)

Just last week I spoke to a Dove representative. They will clearly state any of the 8 main allergens; like others have said, they will not hide gluten, which is great!

However, for those with multiple issues (particularly corn)---they were not particularly helpful. They said that because it is proprietary, they do not disclose if there are other allergens (like corn). The only way to know is to have a doctor's note written and sent, and only then will they let consumers know if there are other allergens. Just wanted to share this if others are doing a search about multiple intolerances/personal care products.

I purchased Dove beautifully clean shampoo and conditioner because they seem to be gluten free. However, whenever I use them my arms and legs itch like crazy. Is there something else in them that may be causing my problem? Can anyone suggest another shampoo & conditioner that's gluten-free?

Jackie, I use Pantene hair products not knowing if they are gluten-free or not and I don't have any problems with them. Good luck in your search. ;)

You could be sensitive to any number of ingredients in the shampoo and/or conditioner. I'd call the manufacturer and see if you can get a replacement product or reimbursement since you are reacting to their product.

The only problem with this is that Gluten is NOT one of the 8 main allergens, wheat is & there is a big difference between wheat free & gluten free. The FDA should have made companies list gluten as well. I am currently looking for a new shampoo & conditioner & was brought here after the Dove site really wasn't helpful to me. The slightest gluten ingredient in a hair product causes my face to break out, a severe headache & sometimes hives. I'm not willing to take a chance on "the 8 main allergens". If a product is gluten free; it should be marked as such under the ingredients.

Did you look at the date on that post? 2006! The information is outdated.

    • Make sure that you ask the doctor how long she has to stop the supplements before you have her levels tested and be sure to take them all with you when you have the appointment so the doctor knows what she is taking.
    • Talk to your doctor. With your family history and symptoms he/she may be able to diagnose based on resolution of your symptoms and family history. Also check with your local hospital if it has it's own lab.  Mine covered any labs at a greatly reduced cost based on a sliding fee scale. Did you have an MRI before they did the spinal? Celiacs with neuro impact will have white spots on an MRI that resemble the lesions found with MS. Many neuro doctors don't know this. I went through what you did and they did a spinal on me also based on the MRI results. If my doctor had know what the UBOs (unidentified bright objects) were I would have been diagnosed a couple years sooner than I was. Make sure if you supplement that you ask your doctor which ones you need to stop taking and for how long before they do a blood test to check levels. Sublingual B12 is a good idea when we have nervous system issues, but needs to be stopped for at least a week for an accurate blood level on testing. I hope you get some answers and feel better soon.
    • Thanks for that.  Will get her tested for deficiencies.  I did take her to a naturopath and get her on a bunch of vitamins, but she never was tested via bloods, so will get on to that, thanks  
    • Hi Could a mod please move this post:   and my reply below to a new thread when they get a chance? Thanks! Matt
    • Hello and welcome Firstly, don't worry about it but for ease your post (and hopefully my reply) will probably be moved to its own thread. That will make it easier for others to see it and reply and also help Galaxy's own thread here on track and making sense.  The antibodies that the celiac tests look for can drop very quickly, so... maybe? Celiac is difficult to test for, there are different tests and sometimes someone doesnt test on one but does on the other. If you can get a copy of the tests and post it here the community may be able to help explain the results.  It may have shown damage to the villi, the little tendrils in your intestine that help you extract nutrients from your food. Celiac is one, but not the only, way in which they can get damaged leading to a vast number of potential symptoms and further making diagnosis a tricky proposition. Definitely, there's a connection. Here's a page that explains it in detail: https://stomachachefree.wordpress.com/2012/03/21/liver-disease-in-celiacs/ Fantastic  It sounds as if your doctors were happy to diagnose you on the basis of the endoscopy? It may be then that you've found your answer. I hope so, you've clearly had a rotten and very scary time.  I'm sure with the positive reaction to the diet you want to go on and get healthy, but I would only add that you should discuss this with your doctors, because they may want to exclude other potential causes if they've not confirmed celiac at this point. Check out the advice for newly diagnosed here: To your family I'd simply say that celiac is a disease of the autoimmune system, the part of our body that fights diseases and keeps us safe. In celiac people the autoimmune system see's the gluten protein found in wheat, barley, or rye grains as a threat to the system and it produces antibodies to attack it and in doing so attacks it's own body as well. It's genetic in component so close family members should consider a test if they have any of the many symptoms. There's roughly 1 person in 100 with celiac but most of them don't know it and are risking getting or staying sick by not finding out.  There's further info for them and you here: https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/announcement/3-frequently-asked-questions-about-celiac-disease/ I'm going to ask a mod to move your post and my reply to a new thread, but wanted to give you an answer first The good news is you've found a great site and there will be lots of support for you here. You've also got 'lucky' in that if you're going to have an autoimmune condition, celiac is a good one  Most react really well to the gluten free diet and you will hopefully have much more healing to come!
