New Creme of Nature products - possibly distressing news

I read about some new products from Creme of Nature with "Certified Organic Ingredients" and I thought they looked interesting, so I went out to see if I could find them in stores. I went to Walmart and they had the Sunflower and Coconut and Kiwi and Citrus shampoos. Great...so I take a look at the ingredients and...ack! They both have Sodium Laureth Sulfate! What's worse, on the front of the bottle, there's a little picture of the old shampoo bottles and a note that says "Former Look." The Sunflower/Coconut had a picture of the red and white bottle, and the Kiwi/Citrus had a picture of the green and white bottle. So it looks like they're going to phase out the old formulas and replace them with these new ones. But on the Creme of Nature website, they have both the new and old products listed. I really hope they aren't getting rid of the old formulas. I saw plenty of the old stuff at a beauty supply store the other day. I'm going to Sally's later to see if I can find the green and white shampoo because anything with sulfates dries my hair out terribly. Has anyone else seen or tried these new products?

BTW, I did pick up a bottle of the Chamomile and Comfrey conditioner. It does have cones in it, but my hair doesn't mind cones. I'll probably give it a try today or tomorrow.

    I hadn't heard it, but did notice that my walmart was clearancing out the shampoo a while ago, so I bought 3 bottles of it b/c it was on clearance. That stinks that they changed the formulas.

    I stockpiled the old shampoo (red and white w/ yellow lid) when I noticed Target had it marked down to a buck. I had a feeling this meant bad news!! Wonder if the stuff in the big bottles at Sally will stay the same, or if they will reformulate that too?

    I did find the big "Professional" bottles of the old stuff at Sally's today, but they had the new formulas in the smaller bottles. I sure hope they keep these around.

    I'm not sure but after reading this I bought 3 of the big bottles of the shampoo at Sally's today. That will last me for awhile. I hope it's not going away. Wal-Mart here doesn't carry the shampoo or the conditioner anymore. I'm not sure what's going on but I love Creme of Nature (shampoo and conditioner) so this is distressing news for me!

    I was in Kroger tonight, and they have this marked down to $1. I bought the last three bottles my store had. If you are into stockpiling and live by a Kroger, you might want to check it out.

    I love Creme of Nature, dang it! Now I have to search for another drugstore shampoo with no sulfates.
    Any ideas?
    That's right, I said it! I wear scrunchies!!

    I am a sulfate washing, cone slabbing, curly lovin' s.o.b. The CG police haven't caught me yet.

    the CVS next to my job had 4 or 5 bottles left at regular price. i haven't seen the regular-sized bottles anywhere else.

    Thank you for posting this news, sunshower. Cream of Nature shampoo with the red label is a favorite of mine.

    Everything that works for my hair is being discontinued or reformulated. :banghead:
