    The first company that came to mind is Aveda (which I like some of their products.) But they are just like everyone else, but with some added botanicals.

      For what it’s worth, Aveda does do things with sustainable energy that most companies do not.

        Thank for drawing this to my attention! I enjoy some of their products and I’ll feel a little better about spending slightly more on them knowing this.

    I will never trust a company that bash other companies or spread misleanding information to sell. I actually avoid buying from them cause their ingredients lists are confusing and uncomplete, no greenwashing for me!
