I readily admit that I am an unreconstructed shoe snob who would go barefoot before wearing Nine West. But I am not a green snob. When companies and their products jump shamelessly onto the environmental bandwagon, claiming to be natural and organic when they are patently not, I say slide along and make room for them. At least they recognize that there is a bandwagon and that can only help it to get bigger and better. And so I embrace Organix Promegranate and Green Tea Shampoo.

Organix, which as its 'X' might imply, is not convincingly organic. There is no reference to USDA certification. And while the bottle claims that the pomegranate and green tea extracts are organic, we do not know the provenance of the coconut-based products and there are various chemical conditioners (the mouthful that is guar hydroxypropyltrimonium chloride) and film formers (polyquaternium-11).

Nevertheless, I welcome Organix aboard for recognizing that customers want to care for themselves with good antioxidants such as green tea and pomegranate. Plus there are vitamins B and E. Organix is also to be commended for what has been consciously left out: no parabens or sulfates. And at $6.99 they are joining the ranks of mass market cosmetic companies such as Yes To Carrots (true, there is a way to go before they are as good as Yes) who make good products that seem to care about the health of their customers and the planet while maintaining terrific price points.

    I agree about loving Organix Pomegranate green tea shampoo. I use henna in my hair and this product DOES NOT strip, nor eventually load up my hair with whatever makes fine and thin hair flat and limp. PLUS I have chronic problems with eczema and this does not cause me any trouble, nor dandruff. I do not use cpnditioner because it makes hair retain dust, which adds to allergies. LOVE THIS shampoo.

    I've been trying the Organix pomegranate and green tea shampoo for a while now and recommend it highly if you have color-treated hair. This shampoo does not strip my color, nor is it one of those "organic" shampoos that doesn't actually clean my hair or else completely strips all natural oil. Clean and unstripped trumps completely, certifiably "organic" so far as I'm concerned. I've tried many, many so-called natural/organic (depending on what I buy) shampoos and have dumped all of them because of the stripping or not cleaning factors. If I have to add TONS of conditioner or use a different shampoo to get my hair clean, I frankly do see the point of using the product, organic or not. All in all, Organix is a very good shampoo that I will continue to use and it's a good buy at around 6 dollars. As an aside, please give me some sort of preservative in my products. I do NOT want anything nasty growing in things I put on my body and I don't want to prematurely discard products without some sort of preservative in order to avoid that problem. That's another complete waste of money.
