This is another one of my favorite topics . . . that's right, I'm talking about INGREDIENT LISTING problems!! Call it misleading or call it an omission, call it whatever you'd like! I just wish you'd call J&J and complain (their consumer hotline is (800) 294-3632)!
The front label clearly touts "natural lavender", however, you don't find lavender in the ingredient listing whatsoever! [BTW if you click on the picture, you can just make out the "with natural lavender" right under the word shampoo]. The funny thing: it seems like J&J was not necessarily wanting to keep from disclosing its ingredients, but, rather, this story goes to show you that the ingredient list is a lagging afterthought. Another possibility may be that there are indeed other "natural" ingredients that are just labeled as "fragrance" and that's that!
Copycat products with copycat osmissions! Pick up that store-brand knock-off of J&J's original lavendar baby shampoo, and guess what? Yup, they make the same ingredient labeling mistake. The front says with "natural lavender" but nary an inclusion in the ingredient listing. I believe the store brand that I was checking out at the time was Target. Come on guys, get it together. Let's hope the next run of these products will include a full disclosure of ingredients on their labels!
This post isn't necessarily mean to bash J&J (although I'm sure they could take it!) but to point out that ingredient errors/omissions are made by all types of companies, including those with billions of dollars and untouchable reputations!
Till next time readers!! Be well, and remember, the only good tears are those of gratitude!
