Shampoo - Cherry Almond

Announcing New Cherry Almond Shampoo

When we launched our Cherry Almond Hand Wash, we were BLOWN away by the reaction! You all loved the scent, so we’re expanding the line. The first step is a new Cherry Almond shampoo!

Why Cherry Almond Shampoo

As we consider different scents variations several factors come into play. Adding variety so that we can appeal to people who prefer different scent categories. Varying ingredients so that we can offer options to those with allergies or sensitives. We also consider the benefits of the ingredients we add to the base formula. In this case our Cherry Almond shampoo is good for those looking to combat dryness, reduce frizz, and add shine. A few of the hero ingredients are:

Prunus amygdalus dulcis (sweet almond) oil- Beneficial for dehydrated, dry, damaged, and frizzy hair. Hydrating properties combat dryness, eliminate frizz, and provide shine.

Ricinus communis (castor) seed oil – Many people use castor oil as a natural hair treatment. This is because castor oil has moisturizing properties, which could help lubricate the hair shaft, increasing flexibility and decreasing the chance of breakage.

Juniperus Mexicana (cedar) oil – Used in hair, Cedarwood Oil is known to cleanse and enhance circulation to the scalp, tighten the follicles, stimulate healthy growth, reduce thinning, and slow hair loss.Shampoo - Cherry Almond

Natural Fragrance Ingredients Explained

The full list of ingredients for the scent are: Cinnamomum cassia leaf oil, Prunus amygdalus dulcis (sweet almond) oil, Ricinus communis (castor) seed oil, amyris balsamifera bark oil, juniperus Mexicana (cedar) oil, eugenia caryophyllus (clove) leaf oil, artemisia pallens flower oil, and natural fragrance ingredients.

The only legal requirements for listing fragrance is just that, to list the word fragrance to show that there are additional additives to the formula related to scent. The original Plaine Products shampoo,
conditioner and body wash were formulated using essential oils. As we’ve expanded we’ve found that essential oils don’t always mix well with some of our other formulas. They can cause separation, or we’ve had trouble making the scent come out just right. On the advice of our manufacturer, we started experimenting with other naturally derived fragrances. Our face moisturizer is a great example. Some of you may remember we struggled with getting the mix right with essential oils, the product kept separating. We switched over to a naturally derived grapefruit scent and it has resulted in a much more consistent product.

As we were working to develop the cherry almond shampoo we lost the supplier of the scent we originally used for the hand wash. Of the new scent options presented one was definitely the best, but the supplier wanted us to just list fragrance to protect their proprietary formula.

Our Commitment to Transparency

Here at Plaine Products, one of our core values is transparency. We explained that we needed more information than “just fragrance” to feel comfortable. We worked with them to get the list shared above, and posted on the product page, and agreed that they could keep additional ingredients private and list them as natural ingredients. They have also sent us a document certifying all ingredients are plant-based aromatics that are produced using pure essential oils and aromatic isolates derived solely from natural, raw botanical sources.

We are in the process of updating a few other products to improve on consistency and product performance and are using the same supplier. As such, you will now see the same “natural fragrance ingredients” listed on our Citrus Lavender Conditioner, and soon on our Green Tea Deep Conditioner.

We know that there are trade-offs that come with making any product, and we are committed to being transparent about the choices we make, so you can feel better about the choices you are making. As always please reach out with questions or thoughts.

We hope you enjoy this new scent as much as we are!
