I was very happy to come across the reasonably priced 356 prodoucts when Whole Foods opened in my city. The low price finally enabled me to switch from the other stuff. However, the conditioner never really worked for me and, since the reformulation, I must use three times more of the shampoo than with the old formulation. When I use the same amount I always did with the new formlulation my hair was left feeling just as sticky and hard to manage as beore I washed. I would not mind just going though the product three times as fast as before if I could afford to keep buying a large bottle every week. Unfortunately I have had to switch back to my old brand (not a natural product) because I cannot afford to keep bying the 365 so often (it is the same size but it last two to three months vs. one week for 365). If the conditioner can ever be formulated to work then I will use it in a heartbeat, and the same goes for the shampoo! On a positive note, I have used the body lotion and body wash since Whole Foods opned here and love it. Also, Desert Organics makes a GREAT face wash with tea tree and awphui with very resonabbly priced economy refills (I have to buy a refill once a year!). Once the shampoo and conditioner issues are resolved my bath will be both affordable and natrual!

It is interesting that you created this standard, yet only recently moved to have your products match "the standard". Sounds a bit strategic to me. You carry so many great body care products that have long been dedicated to excellence, please don't push these off your shelves.

I really like the 365 body products, mostly because I can afford them :) Glad to hear they are made with good quality ingredients, I always wondered about that prior.

I buy the 365 shampoo and shower gel for our house. It saves a lot, because my girlfriend would normally buy products that are 2x's as much. I really like the smell and feel of the gel!

I provide nutrition council to people and always mention the value of looking at your skin as part of the equation. I applaud your commitment on this front!

Kind of cool you took this initiative. I wonder how it stacks up, but will certainly read more.

I still have a HUGE 365 Lotion bottle I think I bought over a year ago. The best part, I love the lotion and I think it cost about $5!

I understand the need for natural bodycare, the one problem I have is natural shaing cream doesn't work as well. I get it now- the lack of lathering really inhibits a close shave. I know this sounds silly, but recently I was traveling and had to buy a travel size traditional foam shaving cream, it it provided a much closer shave. I have switched back to this for the time being, it smells synthetic but the results are to good to ignore.

I dig the 365 shampoo and really haven't tried other stuff from that line, but will. It would be cool to se more 365 men's products.

Very good! Looking for an affordable sunscreen at your store, perhaps a 365 future product?

Thanks for this post. I see "Natural" labels at ACME food stores now, and can't imagine the products are all they claim.

I really enjoyed this podcast. I buy many of your 365 brand items and love the fact that I can actually afford them.

I actually teach swimming and have to use a lot of lotion. I use the 365 lotion because it seems to work and is a great price!

A standard for natural products seems to make a lot of sense to me. Not totally sold that one company with products in the market is the best choice, but hey, great effort!

I see this as a great move towards accountability for people claiming their products are natural. thanks for your work.

I have never found any 365 dental care products, perhaps I am just missing them at my store, if not I think it would be great to add to your line.

Funny for me to come across this podcast! I have a gigantic 365 shampoo in my shower which I love. I am happy to hear it is measuring up :)

We do not make a 365 Everyday Value dental care line, but appreciate the suggestion! I'll pass it along to our Exclusive Brands team.

The progression of body care over the last 5 years has really been incredible. I am happy that there are so many healthy options nowadays.
