Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I've been using Alba Botanica Lotion for years, professionally and personally. My clients loved the fact that it was truly unscented and felt clean on their skin. They appreciated the fact that they didn't feel greasy, sticky or waxy, or had even a small hint of any kind of scent upon their return to work, or the rest of their day.
I was extremely disappointed to find out that the new & improved formula had not changed for the better. It had a subtly pungent smell and was sticky and left a waxy film on my sheets, the clients' skin and on the clients' clothes... Unfortunately, I got complaints.
I called the customer service number on Alba Botanica's website to complain about the new product. The response that I received was an envelope of more Alba Botanica product that I didn't want.
Just wanted to update my review. Those who think that Alba is so great never experienced the original formula.
Good News for the grieving former Alba users.
Beauty Without Cruelty (BWC) Fragrance Free Lotion has the same feel and consistancy of the Alba Very Emollient Lotion that we knew and loved. You can order it on Amazon.
It only comes in 8 oz and 16 oz bottles but what the heck. I'm in heaven again.
********************************************** Alba if you are reading the comments notice that your loyal users were satisfied with the old formula. The new formula SUCKS!
Remove the shea butter or decrease the amount. The lotion is too thick and sticky.
I used to rave to everyone about this lotion because it was emollient enough to keep my skin soft and moist but light enough so that I did not feel sticky, waxy or uncomfortable.
The new formula has changed all of this...
Unfortunately the NEW owners of Alba has chosen to alter the formula of several of their products.
They have added several ingredients that in my opinion make this lotion a poor choice for someone who cares about the toxic and potentially harmful chemicals they apply to their body. They also moved the dimethecone several places up on the ingredients list so it contains even more.
They also changed the scent. The new scent is horrible. It smells like some lotion my SIL brought from China.
I emailed them my concerns basically they said their customers help them determine what they prefer. I guess they dont know who their customers are. Ive spoken to the natural foods stores I shop in and they are considering whether or not they will carry the product.
Here is a list of ingredients they added. Polysorbate 60, Potassium Hydroxide, Xanthan Gum, Alcohol (1), Benzoic Acid, Dehydroacetic Acid, Phenoxyethanol, Amyl Cinnamal, Benzyl Benzoate, Benzyl...
