***Pantene Product Alert***

June 5, 2012 at 6:53 pm Leave a comment

Recently Pantene launched its “natureFUSION” line of products. These products are are made from “naturally derived ingredients” and were first advertised as “gluten-free”.

These claims were made on their website and a few other places on the web and in print. Since the launched Pantene has withdrawn all claims that it is “natureFUSION” line gluten-free.

We spoke with the customer relations department at Pantene and received mixed answers if the natureFUSION line is gluten-free or not.

One rep told us that it was made of “mostly” gluten-free ingredients and another stated that Pantene consults with the National Celiac Foundation about it’s products.

We also tried to contact P&G’s brand manager for Pantene, Randall Chinchill, to clarify this issue but he has not returned our calls.

If the Pantene “natureFUSION” line does contain traces of gluten this can be a minor inconvenience to those who choose a gluten-free lifestyle. However; if you have Celiac disease or other gluten allergies this could be harmful to your condition.

Pantene is a quality brand and strives to present the best product available. However; until Pantene officially communicates weather it’s products are gluten free or not we encourage you to exercise caution, read the labels and consult with your physician if you are unclear about the use of this product or encounter reactions due to it’s use.
