Much thanks to review by Amy from WIUS I too bought this New more sustainable cleansing gel but did not notice the ingredient changes. Until the original ingredients are brought back I will NOT buy this product which I have faithfully used for many years.

DISSAPPOINTED WITH INGREDIENT CHANGES!!
TWO THUMBS DOWN!! Let me explain...I have been using Avalon Organics Vitamin C Refreshing Cleansing Gel for YEARS. My husband on the other hand was using a Neutrogena face wash. I convinced him to start using Avalon since I knew the ingredients were much more healthy and safe, also his skin seemed to be getting very dry. Last week I went to our local health store to pick up more face wash. The bottle label was different and it had a sticker on it that said "NEW MORE SUSTAINABLE". I am an ingredient reader... so when I got home I decided to compare the old label to the new one...TOO MY SURPRISE the ingredients were TOTALLY DIFFERENT!! The first 2 or 3 ingredients make up around 70% of any product, now instead of Lavender, Chamomile, and White Tea being the first 3 ingredients...it is now Aloe Juice, Aqua (water), and Decyl Glucoside...whatever that is!! Not to mention that the product feels less "gelly" and more watery...the change in ingredients is obvious!! And the smell has changed from a "refreshing" herbal smell to a chemical smelling product, much like the product my husband had formally used. I have had my share of skin problems in the past, and to find a product that works well for my skin, with results I can feel and see is a blessing. This product DOES NOT seem as promising!! If the ingredients go back to there original recipe I will gladly continue puchasing this product. Otherwise I am now on the hunt for a NEW MORE SUITABLE product for both me and my husband! Thank you for reading!!!
