The Body Shop

I love products from The Body Shop, so I contacted them to find out if they have any gluten free products. Here is their response:

Attached is a list of products which contain a low level of Wheat, Corn, Rye, Barley or Oat and as such may possibly contain low level of Gluten. Also, is attached a list of gluten free products.

Please understand however that Gluten is not cited as an impurity in our raw materials and our vendors do not actually test for it, as such. If any of the products in our assortment which contain Wheat, Corn, Rye, Barley or Oat derivatives have Gluten as an impurity, the level would be extremely low. We are not however in a position to guarantee that the rest of our portfolio is Gluten free. It has to be stressed that this is the same for all reputable cosmetic manufacturers and brand owners.

I wanted to clarify what they meant by this so I wrote back and got a very clear answer:

Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee the products to be 100% gluten free, but the list does include products thought to be free of gluten.

We're going to keep products from The Body Shop out of our house but there are a lot of people for whom this level of security is suitable.
