Default New Giovanni and Desert Essence Products

Giovanni has a new Wellness Shampoo and Conditioner as well as a new 3-1 shampoo/bodywash.

They are all protein free.

I bought the Wellness conditioner (cause my scalp has broken out with psoriasis) it has a very strong smell and tingle. That being said it has helped my scalp a ton. It also makes my hair shiny.

Purified Water, *Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe
Vera) Leaf Juice, *Sesamum Indicum (Sesame) Seed Extract
[Hei Zhi Ma], Embilca Officinalis Fruit Extract [An Mole}, *Eclipta
Prostrata Extract [Mo Han Lian], Sapindus Mukorssi Fruit
Extract [Wu Huan Zi], *Bacopa Moniera Extract [Jia Ma Chi
Xian], Rehmannia Glutinosa (Chinese Foxglove) Root Extract,
Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Extract [Proanthocyanidins] Serenoa
Serrulata (Saw Palmetto) Fruit Extract, Chamomilla Recutita
(Matricaria) Flower Extract, Uritica Dioica (Nettle) Extract,
Camellia Sinemsis (Green Tea) Leaf Extract, Mentha Piperrita
(Peppermint) Oil, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil,
Stearalkonium Chlordie, Behentrimonium Chloride, Hydroxypropyl
Guar, Cetyl Alcohol, Glycerin, Cetearyl Alcohol, Panthenol,
Menthol, Menthyl Lactate, Potassium Sorbate, Phenoxyethanol

I really like the 3-1 Shampoo. It is much more gentle than my Desert Essence Coconut Shampoo. This will be a staple for me now
It comes in 4 scents. I have Grapefruit Sky.

Purified Water, *Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Leaf Juice,
Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Sodium Lauroyl Sarcosinate, Sodium
Cocamphoacetate, Butyrospermom Parkii (Shea Butter) Extract, Camellia
Sinensis (Green Tea) Leaf Extract, Symphytum Officinale Leaf Extract,
Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Borago Officinalis Seed Oil, Macrocystis
Pyrifera (Sea Kelp ) Extract, Panthenol (ProVitamin B5), Pyrus Malus (Apple)
Fruit Extract, *Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit), *Citrus Aurantium Dulcis
(Valencia Orange) Fruit Extract, *Citrus Medica Limonum (Lemon) Peel Extract,
*Echihnacea Angustifolia (Coneflower) Extract, Punica Granadtum (Pomegranate)
Fruit Extract, Xantham Gum, Aleurites Moluccana (Kukui Nut) Seed Oil, Limnanthes
Alba (Meadowfoam) Seed Oil, Faragrance, Potassium Sorbate, Phenoxyethanol,
Sodium Benzoate, Polysobate 20, Citric Acid

There are also 3 new Desert Essence Conditioners. They are reformulated verison of their older stuff. They are Jojoba Strenghting, Shea Butter Repairing, and Tea Tree Replenishing.

I'm not going to list all the ingredients because it would take up way too much space. The formulas look really good. Has anyone tried these?

P.S. Desert Essence if you are reading this would you please please please make some styling products!!!
