Sulphate surfactants: not so bothered about the drying alcohol, it's probably just a carrier for fragrance or a plant extract. Awful lot of unnecessary and potentially irritating plant extracts.

Thanks! Looks like Organix or Renpure are my best budget bets for low-poo shampoos that are readily available!

Which ones? There are silicones in some of the products from both lines, also oils/ butters that are likely to be rich in oleic acid tho may not be enough to cause a problem if they are right at the bottom of the ingredients lists. It's a minefield out there.

RIP Burt's Bees... my first CG brand.

Actually I'm being dramatic, the ^conditioners look fine. I'm just sad that they would have a line w/ sodium coco-sulfate. Boo!

Ehhhh companies get bigger, they change. Luckily many of their other products are still good.

Not entirely true, this is their Gud line. It seems like it's targeted towards people who want more traditional behaving/smelling shampoos and conditioners, but less processed ingredients. They still have their normal line, which they have actually reformulated to be more gentle.

Fore example: More Moisture Baobab Shampoo

aqua (water, eau), sodium bis-hydroxyethylglycinate coco-glucosides crosspolymer, sodium cocoyl alaninate, glycerin, disodium cocoyl glutamate, sodium lauroyl lactylate, oryza sativa (rice) extract, adansonia digitata oil, theobroma grandiflorum seed butter, origanum vulgare leaf oil, thymus vulgaris (thyme) oil, hydrolyzed jojoba protein, arginine, sodium cocoyl hydrolyzed soy protein, sodium polyaspartate, parfum (fragrance), xanthan gum, sodium cocoyl glutamate, guar hydroxypropyltrimonium chloride, lauryl lactyl lactate, sodium chloride, lactic acid, leuconostoc ferment filtrate, ascorbic acid, citric acid, potassium sorbate.

Their Baobab shampoo smells awful! The older More Moisture poo was Raspberry, which I used for a long time, until it was discontinued. Oh well. I've found better low-poos since anyway.

I hear you, but the fact that they do have a Gud line means that they are trying to go more commercial using cheaper sulphate surfactants. I don't understand why the Gud shampoos can't also be sulphate-free? Cocamidopropyl betaine can get rid of cones, oil buildup etc. but is still gentler on the scalp than sulphates hence a superior ingredient all around IMHO.

If you have to ask that questions you should check out the reviews. Some people will never be happy without a sulfate foam fest and that squeaky clean feeling. We all know clean hair doesn't need sulfates, but the general pop doesn't feel that way. Not even the tree hugging variety.

I've never smelled it, but that's generally what happens when you try to apply fragrance to certain botanical ingredients. It's why I hate scented sunscreens. Chemical sunscreen will always smell like sunscreen. Attempting to cover it up just makes it worse. I'm a big girl, I can handle it.
