Sodium Benzoate is listed as a nasty in our pocket guide when used for food. But why then do we allow it in our cosmetics? The amount of sodium benzoate used in cosmetics is much smaller than in food as a preservative. Furthermore, the molecules are too large to be absorbed by the skin. This preservative has been allowed by Ecocert; the Soil Association and BDIH. It has been ranked by the EWG as having a low risk of 1. BUT there are reports circulating on the internet that warn against usage of the preservative even in cosmetics. We believe it is still one of the safer preservatives, but as always, we wanted you to be in the loop. The choice is yours to make.

After just 3 washes it also healed a spot of excema on my scalp, which had persisted for years. The aloe in the shampoo is very healing and soothing.14/11/2020, By JdInteresting product
21/10/2020, By Chantelle MullerTerrible.. dried out me and my childrens curley hair ALOT! Also the smell is not nice at all!!07/09/2020, By MiaSmells like lemon/lime, not very foamy, cleans but have to wash twice.07/09/2020, By MiaSmells like lemon/lime, not very foamy, cleans but have to wash twice.08/05/2020, By claudiaWorks so well29/05/2019, By LouiseI am over the moon with this product. Every winter my face gets blotchy and anything I use burns my skin. It has been a miracle moisturiser.03/02/2019, By MarinaThe whole family love this shampoo.31/01/2019, By NadiaStill using this product and still loving it! One of the nicest smells to have while washing your hair.29/01/2019, By KateA great affordable option for curly hair. It doesn't lather like other shampoos, but has a nice clean smell and doesn't dry out my naturally curly hair like other shampoos. Buy this my fellow curly girls!28/11/2018, By ElleGood shampoo, but I did find that I had to use quite a bit more than other shampoos for my long hair. I'm going through it a bit too fast. Would be wonderful if they had it in a bigger size.22/10/2018, By MelanieSUnfortunately this product really dried out my hair. I went from smooth to little orphan Annie in 2 weeks. Not even heavy conditioner could save it. Too bad since I love the Natraloe range.17/09/2018, By NadiaLove the smell of the shampoo, cleans my hair well (much better than store bought products) and love the texture. One negative thing would be you need more shampoo than usual.05/08/2018, By SPI purchased this product as I wanted to go the natural way for my hair. Does not have such a good smell but I enjoy using it as I know I'm not putting junk on my hair!!
suitable for dryer hair types.
27/06/2018, By Sham222I found the same as the other user. I think its making my hair more oily and i have to use alot to get my hair clean26/06/2018, By NatUsed a sample and was impressed with the foam - didn't have a particularly nice smell but effective.04/06/2018, By Bhavishaok but have to use a lot for it to be effective and I have very fine hair28/05/2018, By StaceyI feel like this product is making my hair oilier, and that I need to wash it more often. However, this is the first natural shampoo that I have used after heavy chemical hair products, so I do feel that it's possible that my natural hair oils need time to adjust to a more natural, softer product. I think it will only be a fair assessment in a few more weeks.17/05/2018, By CReceived this as a sample. It has a lovely orange scent and gel-like texture, however I found that it did not get rid of the greasiness as well as my usual shampoo.17/05/2018, By HeatherI received this as a sample and its the first product ive tried that im happy with. For the first time i can brush my hair and not have white residue on my brush.15/05/2018, By KarienI got a sample for this shampoo and fell in love with it. It has a lovely smell and it works really well, without having to use too much. Great product!06/05/2018, By CassandraThis shampoo made my scalp itchy and left the hair greasy. Did not enjoy and will not buy again. I think you should skip this one.20/04/2018, By FiaWas so chuffed to get a sample of this in my parcel! Tried it last night, after a crazy Crossfit session I thought I'd put the the shampoo to the test. Instantly clean, after first lather .... great to save water. Smells really good and hes left my hair soft and shiny, thanks FtN Team30/03/2018, By BronwynNice clean smell and my hair is staying clean for longer.22/03/2018, By LisaThis shampoo is OK. I am using the cleanser and moisturiser from Natraloe. I previously used Victorian Garden shampoo and conditioner but it got expensive so thought I would give Natraloe a try. It's not as nice as Victorian Garden though. I find I tend to use a lot more shampoo to get my hair clean and I'm not fond of the smell.12/02/2018, By TiahnahIt has taken some time to figure out how to use this on my hair. Now I have the recipe down. I usually buy Victoria Garden, but it is a bit pricey so went for this. I am happy with the results. I have fairly dry hair, and it does seem to wash away most of the natural oils, so I limit the amount I use. happy with it for now.30/12/2017, By CandiceOne of the best natural shampoos our family have used, only need a small amount and foams up quickly.13/08/2017, By Tiahnah-LeighSwapped over from Victoria Gardens which has become too pricey. I like this because it is organic. Took some time for my hair to adjust but I just rebought it again as my hair feels good and soft. I seem to need to wash my hair a little more often though as I think it is hard to wash out completely - especially with our water restrictions in the cape!17/07/2017, By JannekeVery happy with this shampoo. Love the smell and texture. Foams nicely.28/06/2017, By AmberNot the greatest shampoo, but it does the job. Nice smell and lathers well, but I probably won't buy it again19/06/2017, By carolDont like this shampoo. I received a sample and discarded it after 2 tries; its left my hair dry and more difficult to comb through. The shampoo is also very thick, so difficult to get out of the bottle.10/06/2017, By ChantzLove this product and smell! Don't need a lot to get all my hair clean.05/11/2016, By SuzanneLieflike sjampoe, maar dit los
lagie op my effens olierige hare. (Ek sukkel met olierige kopvel en droee punte en my hare is baie, maar met fyn tekstuur.) Ek hoop my hare sal binnekort aanpas, maar in die tussentyd is dit maar bietjie toutjie-rig. Die sjampoe ruik darem baie lekker.
Lovely shampoo, but perhaps not up to cleaning my more oily hair. (Oily scalp, dry ends, lots-and-lots of hair.) I hope my hair will acclimatize, but in the meantime my hair is a bit too stringy. The smell is nice though.24/06/2016, By LizEven though the smell of this shampoo and conditioner combo is not the best - its a great product! I used to use the Victorian Garden range (at almost double the price), but it left my scalp itchy. This shampoo does not leave my scalp itchy and the price is great for an all natural!19/05/2016, By AshleyIt works and it smells pleasant! What more do you want from a shampoo?27/04/2016, By wendyI started buying this for my grandson 5 years ago as I didnt want to expose him to any conventional products, as a hairdresser I have many female clients with kids and some new mothers and I started educating them on going organic, today I order this range as an extra service in my salon. Im also converting the clients to Natraloe skincare and its been a great success.23/03/2015, By VanessaThe Natraloe shampoo and conditioner are a winner. I didn’t need a lot of shampoo or conditioner for it to leave my hair feeling washed, nourished and silky. I like the fact that there is not a strong fragrance. I will definitely buy this again.24/11/2011, By ShelleyThanks for the feedback, ladies....we (Natraloe) are looking into improving this product :-)13/11/2011, By TracyI am disappointed with this shampoo :(
It doesn't foam much and I have to use a lot to work up a lather to wash my hair. The conditioner which is advertised as creamy is horrible upon application. It doesn't feel creamy and I battle to detangle my hair. All in all not a product I would buy again.04/11/2011, By AlexandraI think the products are lovely, but they leave my hair too soft and unmanageable. Would be super for coarse hair I am sure.30/06/2011, By TammyI love this shampoo and conditioner! I decided to move over to all natural products in my house, and gave up my very expensive chemical shampoo and conditioner. It took about 5 washes and conditioners to get my hair to be free from chemicals, not oily, not greezy and soft and shiny! I will not go back to chemical products! Now I just need to buy a Heat protect from Natraloe for my flat iron!
