We used to use Nature's Gate shampoos and conditioners growing up.  We'd go to the tiny neighborhood natural grocery store in my New Jersey hometown to get it, and on the way out we'd get a small mint-chocolate square that came with a trading card of an endangered animal.  I think they were called Environmints, and I'm not sure they exist anymore.  I kind of miss the days of the small natural grocery stores in the days before Whole Foods...but, that's a tangent and I digress.

My favorite shampoo was always the Herbal one.   It's not organic and it does contain some less-than-green ingredients, but it's certainly better than most of the typical shampoos and conditioners.  I love the smell of the Herbal shampoo, especially on a cold day.   The non-organic products are cruelty-free and vegan.  

Now, there are a variety of organic shampoos, conditioners, and lotions also available from Nature's Gate.  Their certified organic and locally grown ingredients come from a family owned organic farm in California on land dedicated to growing Nature‚Äôs Gate botanical essences.  The farm's water source comes from the winter rains and snow of the Sierra Nevadas.

The scents are very fresh and natural smelling.  None of them have that toxic shampoo smell, nor do they have an artificial fruity or "herbal" smell.  They smell very real.  They're not overpowering either.  The Mandarin and Patchouli has such a light essence that even people who don't like patchouli will like it.  The Lavender and Aloe is perfect for a refreshing and relaxing shower.

I highly recommend Nature's Gate products.  Until recently, I knew only of their shampoos, conditioners, and lotions, but they also offer many other products.  I am curious about their toothpastes and deodorants!  

FTC Disclosure:  I received some samples courtesy of Nature's Gate to review, however, I have been a longtime fan of their products.
