I found Earth Science Naturals a couple of years back after searching for vegan/cruelty-free shampoo for my family. I’ve been not-so-impressed with several I’ve tried over time, and I am determined to not spend my money on products that are overpriced for the sheer fact that they weren’t used to torture animals or made with animal by-products. So first, the prices for these were right. A bottle of shampoo is less than $9. That’s perfect.
Their citress shampoo and conditioner are my favorite vegan hair products that I’ve found so far. The scent is a very mild, refreshing citrus. My hair always feels clean and looks impossibly shiny.
I have fine/straight hair, which can be really difficult to style after washing because it loses texture, but my hair styles easily after washing with this combo shampoo/conditioner. I wash my hair every other day with this stuff, and a little goes a long way with rich lathering shampoo and silky conditioner.
I use this shampoo and conditioner on my young kids too, and I haven’t had a problem with stinging their eyes, as long as I rinse quickly. Decent hair care products for kids can be very expensive, and I love that I can use this on them, rather than overspending on products that target parental guilt. It’ll be tough to find anything to replace these for this price, I imagine.
I was happy to learn that this is a family-owned business out of Santa Barbara, CA, and not a company owned by one of the large cosmetic companies that also manufacture other cruelty-full brands. Earth Science Naturals offer a number of vegan/cruelty-free hair and skincare products that are as luxurious and effective as many non-vegan/animal-tested competitors, and they offer free shipping on orders over $35, which is an easy mark to hit — they run specials all the time on their website, so stocking up and getting free shipping is easy.
As for their customer service, I’m very impressed. Their representatives have been prompt to reply to my billing questions. In fact, without any hesitation, they once refunded me the difference between the full price I paid for a large purchase and the reduced price from a sale that launched a couple of days later. You can’t beat that type loyalty to their customers.
Stay tuned for future reviews of their other vegan skincare products.
