Trader Joe's NOURISH, a knock-off Giovanni??

I remember several people saying that the TJ Spa Nourish was a knock-off Giovanni. Can you guys tell me which one? Because I went to look up the Giovanni conditioners and the ingredients are a little the same, but not really.

Trader Joes Nourish :
purified water, organic rosemary oil, organic valencia orange citrus, organic mango, organic lemongrass, organic ginko biloba, organic echinacea, organic willow bark, organic sea kelp, organic chamomile flower, organic textured soy protein, organic lavender, organic grapefruit citrus, tocopherol (vitamin E) acetamide mea, certyl alcohol, citric acid, methylparaben, propylparaben, botanical fragrance.

    I don't know, but I heard that Giovanni and Aubrey Organics are well one is the knockoff of the other.

    Well, they may have the same ingredients except for a few.
    So wouldn't one work better than the other because of the order of the ingredients??

    I know nothing about the Giovanni, but I'd like to tell anyone that hasn't tried TJ Nourish, that they should!!
    I just tried it this morning for the first time and I'm in love! It's great stuff.

    thanks for the comparison. the closest TJ is in St. Louis or Chicago, and I luv the conditioner, but i only have like 1.75 bottles left. I bought a sample of the Giovanni, and though the sample did cost 1.99 for like 2oz, it works similarly to the TJ.
    I'm going to Mexico until this bills business blows over.

    I am not a pro on ingredients like so many here, but I have both of these products. I can honestly say no matter which one is supposed to be better, that I get great results with Trader Joe's, and I think Giovanni is just OK, good, but not great.

    Giovanni is higher end and costs more, I half expected Trader Joe's not to work because it was dirt cheap. Go figure!

    That is quite interesting considering that Giovanni products and Aubrey Organics products are so different from each other.

    I thought those two companies are entities unto themselves.

    Can you post which products are supposed to knockoffs of each company?

    I've tried both and I was not impressed with Giovanni. I didn't re-buy. But, I keep my TJ stocked to the brim.

    No, I guess you're right I checked the ingredients.
