Dr. Bronner's Products - removed


Dr. Bronner's has recently changed their ingredients. We'd been hearing reports of reactions for a few months now, but it has been confirmed that Dr. Bronner's now contains corn ingredients.

A company response from a consumer inquiry states: ""our Shaving Gels, Lotions and Hair Crèmes contain xanthan gum derived from non-GMO corn, and our Castile Liquid Soaps, Castile Bar Soaps, Pump Soaps, and Shaving Gels contain citric acid derived from non-GMO corn"

If you're at all contact senstive (and most corn allergic's are when it comes to shower/soap products) please discontinue using Dr. Bronners.

Thank you so much for posting this. I tried Dr. Bronner's coconut lavender body lotion and the hemp / almond castille soap. I am having the WORST reaction that I have ever had to anything before. I stopped using bith products after two uses, when the rash started. My arms and legs have a terrible itchy rash for ten days now and it's not going away yet. I've been looking all over the internet to see if anyone else has had any reaction to Dr. Bronners, but there was nothing but love and praise for how gentle the products are. I am allergic to corn so this must be why I had the reaction. Now I know what tonlook for and avoid in other products in the future. Thanks so much again for posting this.

Thank you for the update. This corn allergy is the pits! I have started making my own soaps, lotions, deodorants, etc., but still was buying Dr. Bonners. I usually buy in bulk so I have not had a reaction from my stock on hand, but will not purchase any more. I guess that I will have to start making my own liquid soaps... back to the lab I go.
