Has anyone purchased Camille Rose at Target?

Like Tree14Likes

I know they are not officially in stores until the 18th, but some stores have already put the products out. I'm interested in knowing whether any of their ingredients changed for the products that will be sold in Target. They are marketing them as "exclusively sold in Target." So, are they going to stop selling the products at other places or is there something different about the products being sold at Target?

I just received a response from their customer service. Ingredients will be the same.

Thanks for this! I was wondering, as well.
I just picked up the Curl Love Moisture Milk, Algae Deep Conditioner and the Almond Jai Twisting Butter today and compared them to items I ordered online and have been using for the past few months and there definitely are differences in the ingredients. There are too many for me to list all of them right now but here's the info for the Curl Love Moisture Milk:

Target version: Deionized Water, behentromonium methosulfate and cetearyl alcohol, avocado oil, rice bran oil, aloe barbadenis leaf, castor seed oil, macadamia seed oil, sorbitol, camellia (green tea) sinesis leaf, rice milk, rose seed oil, cetearyl alcohol, ceteareth 20, slippery elm bark, phenoxyethanol, caprylyl glycol, sorbitol acid, scent and love.

My version at home: Distilled water, rice milk, macadamia oil, Shea oil, avocado oil, aloe Vera extract, green tea extract, btms, tocopherol (vitamin E), optiphen, natural fragrance and love.

I've been loving Camille Rose products for over a year, especially the almond jai butter and I really hope that these formula changes don't mess up our relationship. However, the old moisture milk formula was never very moisturizing for me, so I'm hoping that this new version will work better for my hair.

Wow. That seems like a pretty big difference and they definitely changed the ingredients. Rice milk drastically went down the list! That's disappointing. I've been so excited to try their products...very lame.
Please write back on your experience with the new product ingredients. Thanks in advance!
She must've either changed the formula or is just displaying the ingredient list more accurately, It's really not that difficult to list ingredients in the order that they are used in a formulation....I don't know why so many businesses fail at this part (not referring to Camille Rose in particular by the way).

@mimismom, is there a preservative listed in the Algae Deep Conditioner now? I seem to remember that was the main issue.
Products in current rotation:

Terressentials Pure Earth Mud Wash; Elucence MBC (now really just for cowashing, leg shaving or emergencies); Curl Junkie: Repair Me, Deep Fix, Curl Rehab; AOHSR (retiring); Oyin Handmade: Honey Hemp, Hair Dew, J&B; Qhemet Biologics: BRBC (retiring- prefer Oyin HD), AOHC, OHHB; Jojoba Oil for scalp; Castor Oil or Shea butter to seal; Henna & Ayurvedic pastes when I can be bothered.

Still searching for the perfect stylers, but loving CJ CIAB over everything so far
This is so annoying! I'm going to write customer service back and see what they say about the discrepancy in the labels.

So far I have tried the moisture milk and it smells the same and applies the same. The differences that I noticed is that my hair dried soft and didn't shrink up like the previous version so I'm really liking that .

Here are the ingredients for the algae deep conditioner:

Target version: deionized water, aloe vera juice, butyrospermum parkii (shea) butter, cocos nucifera (coconut) oil, behentrimonium methosulfate, cetyl alcohol, dipropylene glycol (Btms), theobroma cacao (Cocoa) butter, mangifera indica (mango) seed butter, cannabis saliva (hemp) seed oil, panthenol, manuka honey, vegetable glycerin, camellia sinensis (green tea) extract, simmondsia chinensia (jojoba) seed oil, rosa canina (rose hip) fruit oil, bitis vinifera (grape) seed oil, oenothera biennis (evening primose) oil, phenoxyethanol and caprylyl glycol, blue green algae, dimethyl sulfone (msm), biotin, tocopheryl acetate (vitamin e), mentha piperita (peppermint) oil, scent and love.

My old version: distilled water, blue green algae, honey, aloe vera juice, coconut oil, mango seed butter, shea butter, hemp, grapeseed, glycerin, green tea, panthenol, rose hip, jojoba oil, evening primrose oil, peppermint oil, msm, biotin, vitamin e and love.

I thought the list looked long at first but it's actually just the full name of the ingredients listed now. She also added some things to the formulation and moved others around. The ingredients aren't bad so I'm hopeful it will still work for me. I also don't see any preservative besides Vitamin E. HTH!

Here are the ingredients for the almond jai twisting butter:

Target version: deionized water, behentrimonium methosulfater (btms), cetearyl alcohol, prunus dulcis (almond) milk, prunus dulcis (almond) oil, cucurbita pepo (pumpkin) seed oil, sesamum indicum (sesame) seed oil, simmondsia chinensis (jojoba) seed oil, oryza sativa (rice) bran oil, macadamia ternifolia (macadamia nut) seed oil, olea europaea (olive) fruit oil, cannabis sativa (hemp) seed oil, ulmus fulva bark extract (slippery elm), ricinus communis (castor) seed oil/hydorgenated, aloe barbadensis (aloe) leaf juice, honey, camellia sinensis (green tea) leaf extract, phenoxyethanol, caprylyl glycol, sorbic acid, scent and love.

My old version: almond milk, distilled water, aloe vera leaf juice, btms, almond oil, jojoba oil, olive oil, pumpkin seed oil, macadamia oil, hemp, honey, green tea, marshmellow root, amla, optiphen, natural fragrance and love.

So again, some ingredients added, some removed and others moved around. And scientific names included on the label. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that my hair responds the same or better to the new formula.

Yeah I reached out to the owner and she said that the only slight formula change was adding cocoa butter to the dc. She also said the ingredients on all of the products are now labeled in the correct order. As long as the ingredients are good and my hair is happy I'll still use them.

Thanks for all this info ladies. Sounds like its still a good product. I'll definitely still go ahead and give them a try.

Thanks!
if you buy it at Target and you don't like it, take it back. No money lost. That's why I'm so happy to see more boutique product lines moving into major chains. I really like some things from Camille Rose and some things from KBB, but trust if I don't like it off the shelf, Target will see me again with receipt in hand.

Now if we could only get Curl Junkie in a store near me...
My hair: thick, medium/coarse, high porosity in the crown naturally, normal porosity everywhere else.

Currently using...
Poo: Any sulfate free or low sulfate poo
Rinse out: Tresemme Naturals
Leave-in: Camille Rose Moisture Milk
DC: Eden Bodyworks Coconut Shea DC
Stylers: Xtreme Wetline gel
Oils: EVCO
Moisturizer: Oyin Hair Dew/watered down CR Moisture Milk
Sealant: Oyin pomades or JC Nourish and Shine
