Why do they have to have scents? I am so allergic to scents that I never go in your room with the shampoos and such because it makes me so sick. Just because it is natural does not make it allergy free. For instance wheat it very natural and wholesome for most people but I am allergic to it as well. I really need special shampoos and soaps but I cannot buy them at your store.

Melani, Have you tried out our 365 Everyday Value line? The products in that line are well below your price threshold and meet our Premium Body Care standards!

Many brands we carry, including our own 365 Everyday Value line offer fragrance-free options. Just ask your local Whole Body specialist to help point out the appropriate products for your needs.

I love shopping at Whole Foods and have trusted that your company screens for unsafe products, so I was disappointed to see that so many of the shampoos contain Sodium Laurel Sulfates. I has become a daunting task trying to find a shampoo. I still love your store and spend a good chunk of our budget there, but I am no longer so naive to think I can rest on my "laurels" while you guys ferret out the bad stuff.

Good idea to create your own standards but my confidence goes to Ecocert ( DRUIDE.CA made in Canada) this is independent, international and is operated for years by ecologists. High standards by controlling: suppliers,natural and organic ingredients, approved containers material , eco-friendly factory , etc

This is a good podcast, but I would like to see you all talk about solutions which are not so heavily focused on product consumption. There are many natural ways to take care of your skin which don't involve cleansers and lotion. Simply a warm water face wash can work wonders.

Curious that your 365 products are not all "compliant" yet you ask this of others. not to be negative, I am sure it takes time to make changes and this is a great step in the right direct.

The 365 line sounds good, I'll check it out at the store, and assume it meet the standard you created?

"Ecocert" is a standard I think you all should consider. It is independent and not created by a commerce engine.

I really like the 365 Everyday Value bodycare products except for the fragrance free shampoo. It has a terrible, chemical smell to it. I like the lavender and mint but I would have preferred to use fragrance free. I've used other fragrance free shampoos and they don't have that nasty chemical smell. I think that one could use a re-evaluation. Thanks.

I used the 365 hair condition for the first time and it works for my natural hair. I am very happy to see that there is a business with a heart and compassion for its customers. I have been searching--a long time--for something to accommodate my hair texture since I went natural. I'm not worry about the less lather because shampoo is not supposed to lather. I am also happy that the essentials oils are not listed first on the ingredients label because too much of it can irritated the scalp. WholeFoods has make a product affordable and useful. Though a business needs to make money, they should not jeopardize the customer's health or use ingredients that are not useful. What WholeFoods did was review their product, found out it should be better and change it. This concepts takes integrity and empathy. Thanks Whole Foods
