Ingredients did not change, the product was not labelled correctly before!
Posted by Reviewer3102990 on Aug 16, 2012
After the claims that the ingredients changed after being purchased by lafes, i wrote them a mail to ask them in detail about this. They responded immediately with this mail: Thanks for getting back to me. We purchased this product line from one of the original developers in 2011, along with the packaging and labels. We decided to update and re-design the labels since we export quite a bit and need to meet specific international regulations, as well as be compliant with Whole Foods Market regulations where the products are being sold. The old labels were not completely accurate as to what was in the product, and this is where the ingredient list on the website was taken from. I have no idea why this was so, as this was before our acquisition, but I can guess that over the years, the product evolved and the label did not. The product has had only 1 change since we bought it - we replaced the synthetic surfactant with a natural one, cleaning it up a bit. Here at Lafe's, we believe in 100% label disclosure, that is, we believe the consumer has the right to know everything in their products. So this puts us in a difficult position, by doing so it makes it seems as though we added many ingredients, when we in fact, did not. The product is still being produced in the same manufacturing facility as it was with the previous owners. The Polysorbate 20 acts as an emulsifier, and is a very small percentage of the product. It is rated "medium" risk on the skin deep website. Without emulsification, the product will separate and be difficult to use. However we do understand your concerns. In the future, we hope to make small changes gradually to this product to "clean it up" even more.
The best natural shampoo I've ever tried

Smells absolutely heavenly and leaves hair soft, shiny and moisturized. No wonder it has been a real star product on natural hair care boards for at least 10 years now.

very nice, huge bottle, good price, very natural product and sooooooo fast delivery to Switzerland! Smells nice, but a little too masculine for my taste

I love this shampoo!! It smells great! Wonderful for both sexes. Not to much of a womanly smell or manly. It left my hair feeling course, but clean feeling. Following with the conditioner makes the coarseness go away. i would recomend this to anyone.

This is a no nonsense shampoo; only ONE wash and rinse necessary. I tried washing twice and and it seemed a bit to much. That said, I do love it because it is very natural and great for the scalp: it doesn't dry it out, but decongests it of excess sebum. I will continue to purchase!
Too strong smell

Much too strong and masculine smell. It doesn't spread easily in the hair.
Reminiscent of Original Herbal Essence

I purchased this shampoo in the hope that it would be like the original Herbal Essence...and it is. The scent is similar and it leaves my hair squeaky clean and fluffy. I do not use any conditioner after shampooing with this product. I didn't need it, which is unusual with most shampoos. This is a great natural shampoo and a little goes a long way! If you've been looking for a shampoo that smells like Herbal Essence original (from 1970's) -this is probably about as close as you will ever get. Try it. I think you'll like it as much as I do!
