Aubrey Organics Honeysuckle Rose: Have The Ingredients Changed?
'Just wanted to give you a little heads up regarding AOHSR. I remember your previous post on the labelling of ingredients and that water should come first. I just bought a new bottle and I now see that water comes first when it was not there before. I guess they changed the ingredients'
If you need a refresher - I previously said water should always be the first ingredient in any water based conditioner (often 50-80% of the volume) - (here and here) and that you should be mightily suspicious if your conditioner did not list water. Some readers said to me back then that Aubrey Organics Honeysuckle Rose Conditioner had no water listed but was your favourite conditioner. I maintained that water should always be the first ingredient in a conditioner and asked Aubrey Organics about this and they responded to say that they would eventually be changing their labels to straightforward labelling and water would appear first (here).
Following Celine's email, I went over to the main website and looked at the new label. I believe that what they used to label as coconut fatty acid cream base has now been expanded (see the ingredients highlighted in blue). The rest of the ingredients are identical to the previous label. I do not think the formula or ingredients have changed (it does not say that they have on the website),I just think the label now reflects the full ingredients. I always thought the use of coconut fatty acid cream base was misleading so well done to Aubrey Organics to correcting the label to industry standards.
