Aubrey Organics Mandarin Magic Ingredient Change

Like Tree12Likes

I bought AOMM based on the reviews, me wanting a product like such and the AO brand itself. I used it for the first time today.....my bottle has the "new ingredient" list and I have to say I LOVE IT!!!! So for those of you that used to like it but are skeptical about the ingredients, give it a try because this will definitely be part of my regular hair routine.

I called Aubrey Organics a few weeks and I was told they did change their formulations on two products, the Green Tea Moisturizer and the E plus High C deodorant. The formulation and ingredients have not changed on any other product. They are listing the ingredients on their products based on gov't requirements

This explains why my hair felt dryer and looked frizzier. These ingredient list says it all. Use to be a great frizz killer & refresher...wng staple

Any suggestions for a replacement? Maybe aloe vera juice?

I put a glob of each side by side on my hand and they look exactly alike and it's been performing exactly the same and I would definitely know since my hair is usually very stringy from glycerin after a few uses and very frizzy from soybean protein ( but this is soybean oil?) So this is strange that they didn't at least put something like "New Formula" on the front of the bottle to let people know, but so far I can't see or feel any difference at all YEA!! Thank you for the heads up though! Plus I just recommend this to others on here, so I hope it works for them too. I have to wonder if they are such small amounts that it doesn't seem to change it much for me at least?

Besides, just taking a look at this thread. Why would they put anything indicating anything was different? You have poster after poster saying they are DONE with this product even though there was no actual evidence anything had really changed, saying that it was cheapened and how disappointed they are with AO.

People don't stop to really see what the actual facts of the matter are, they just react. Aubrey Organics knows this. I don't blame them for not calling attention to a non-change.

Like I said, the same issue has come up with AOHSR and the same overreactions even though the product has not actually changed.

Oh well, more for us!

I remember doing the same kind of research when GFTN added a silicone to their conditioner. So I really appreciate the info. and it makes sense as to why it still works the same for me and why there isn't a labeling change. You guys are the best!

Alright ladies, even though this thread seems to be resolved, I called Aubrey today to ask specifically about Mandarin Magic and here's the scoop: The have removed the mandarin peel and earth smoke because of a manufacturing issue. These herbs were for fragrance only, and should have no effect on the performance of the product (and they are currently looking for a new supplier and will add these herbs back in when they find one). The alcohol and glycerine were previously a part of the aloe gel and herbal extracts and their preservative blend contained glycerine and soy oil. These ingredients are now listed separately.

Now we can all sleep soundly tonight and use our Mandarin Magic tomorrow morning in peace and confidence.
