Is Aubrey Organics going out of business? I explore this serious natural hair issue in today’s article plus share alternatives to Aubrey Organics Products.
Aubrey Organics was founded in the 1960s by Aubrey Hampton. The company creates plant-based natural and organic haircare, skincare and beauty products.
Aubrey Organics has grown to become a force in the organic products industry.
Their hair products became increasingly popular with curlistas over the last ten years or so with many ladies favourites (including mine) being:-
- Aubrey Organics Glycogen Protein Balancing Conditioner
- Honeysuckle Rose Moisturising Conditioner
- White Camellia Conditioner
- Blue Chamomile Conditioner
- Rosa Mosqueta Conditioner
- Blue Green Algae Hair Rescue Conditioning Mask
The conditioners are excellent for co-washing, strengthening hair, and deep conditioning.
Some ladies also liked the accompanying shampoos to these conditioners but I never took to any of them as they all dried out my hair badly no matter how I used them.
They also have some great products in their skincare line such as the Lumessence Lift Face Cream, Lumessence Eye Cream, Age-Defying Therapy Serum, and Calming Skin Therapy Serum.
Somewhere in the last few years, some of the formulas were changed especially the favorites, and led to a loss of some of their fan base.
I stopped using most of the products except the Glycogen Protein Balancing Conditioner, White Camellia Conditioner & Blue-Green Algae.
I started noticing the products were getting harder and harder to find since May so I did some digging and discovered Aubrey Organics has been acquired by Nutraceutical Corporation.
I also discovered they haven’t responded much to Facebook comments since April.
Will the products continue to be produced now that the company has been acquired?
Will the formulas change again? I don’t have the answers to either of these questions but based on previous experience when hair care companies/products are merged, sold or reformulated.
Now might be a good time to go PJ hunting for your favorite Aubrey Organics products before they disappear off the shelves forever.
You may also find similar products in Giovanni and Joico line.
If you’re keen on learning the science behind some of the earlier products as well as recipes, you want to get some of these great books by the founder, Aubrey Hampton:
- What’s in Your Cosmetics?
- The Take Charge Beauty Book: The Ultimate Guide to Beautiful Hair & Skin
- Natural Organic Hair and Skin Care: Including A to Z Guide to Natural and Synthetic Chemicals in Cosmetics
Do you have any favorites from the line you’ll miss? Do you already have suitable replacements for some of their products? Do share in the comments section…
Update: The products are now readily available but appear to have been reformulated and don’t work as well as they used to. 🙁
