There are no allergenic proteins present in the highly refined nut oils and nut extracts used by Unilever.

Unilever manufacturing facilities follow rigorous cleaning procedures in preparing our products. This is necessary not only for product integrity but also for hygiene purposes. The high level of quality found in Unilever products is assured by our adherence to Good Manufacturing Practices [as stated in the CTFA Quality Assurance Guidelines (2007), ISO GMP Guidelines (2007) and FDA Draft Cosmetic GMPs (2013)].

Gluten is a protein found in wheat, rye, barley and processed oats. For ingredient labeling, our company follows the guidelines of the US Food & Drug Administration (FDA) and uses the International Nomenclature for Cosmetics Ingredients (INCI).

This includes any hydrolyzed protein from wheat, rye, barley or oats which may contain gluten. We recommend that you consult with your physician as to whether use of grain derivatives in personal care products will cause the symptoms of Celiac-Sprue Disease.

A recycling symbol can be found on the back label or bottom of most TRESemmé products. 


We are on a journey to have all of our products to be recyclable, and today all of our non-black bottles are already recyclable. To make our black bottles recyclable, we are currently developing a new black pigment for our bottles so they can be detected and sorted. 


For questions on our journey to full recyclability, see here Click here to contact us

By the end of 2020, most TRESemmé shampoo and conditioner bottles sold in the US will be made with 100% recycled plastic. TRESemmé already has 70-100% recycled content in most of its bottles.

The new bottles are recyclable. The components that are not recyclable are the cap/pump. We are working on improving this going forward.

All of the new TRESemmé bottles going into market with a “Restyled for the Planet” logo are made with recycled plastic. Any packaging without the logo is old stock.

At TRESemmé, we stand by the quality of our products, and nothing is more important to us than your complete satisfaction. If you are not satisfied with the results of your TRESemmé shampoos or conditioners within the first 30 days after purchase, please reach out for your money back.
