Review: Rustic Art Celestial Biodegradable Rose shampoo.

Rustic Art Celestial Biodegradable Rose shampoo.

Price: 350/- INR.

Quantity: 200ml.

About the Brand: In their own words: We are Nature Lovers! There is no better way of explaining who we are. They say one should be passionate about the vocation one takes! We did exactly that. We set out to share our love for the environment, in style. With Rustic Art we encourage use of products which are closer to nature, pure and capture the real essence of its ingredients.

We believe in living a life which is free of harmful toxins, chemicals and artificial elements. We define this as rustic! To bring rustic-ness to every aspect of our lives is our constant endeavour. Rustic Art is an extension of our passion towards using environment friendly, nature sensitive products.


Awesome...right! 

Consistency: 'Gel'ish liquid which is moderately runny.

Fragrance: Warm and mild rose-geranium fragrance which feels quite soothing unlike the soapy odour of the Aloevera version.
 

Packaging: Sturdy. Flip cap shuts tight and you can travel with it safely. 

The bottle's label design has changed now and i absolutely hate it! I seriously hope that Rustic Art reverts back to their old label design!

Ingredients: Demineralized Aqua, Disodium Laureth Sulfosuccinate, Alpha Olefin Sulphonate, Disodium Cocoamphodiacetate, Laurydimonium Hydroxypropyl, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, Sodium Cocoyl Glutamate, Essential Oils of Wild Rose and Geranium, Natural Preservative of OLG, Ascorbic Acid, Cocamidopropyl Betaine.

Ingredient Safety: Safe and non-toxic ingredients. Surfactants used are Bio-degradable. In case you are wondering about OLG, it is nothing but a natural preservative blend of Orange oil, Lemon Grass oil and sesame oil providing broad spectrum bactericidal activity along with a good aroma.

Certification: It is mentioned on their website that they use certified organic ingredients but the product as a whole does not hold any certification.

Eco friendly/Biodegradable: Yes.

Cruelty free? Yes. And it's also Vegan.

Swatch: Refer the review post of Rustic Art Aloe shampoo for the swatch. This one just has a slight pink tinge. 

My Experience: 
                            This shampoo performs better regarding all aspects in comparison to their Aloe shampoo. It is more moisturizing and works better with hard bore well water than their Aloe version. I foams like crazy even with as tiny as 2 drops diluted in 1/4th glass of water just like their Aloe version(Multiple surfactants and foam boosters in action here!) And also, it has a wonderful slip just like the conventional silicone based shampoos without actually containing any silicone in it <3. 

Don't opt for this if you have dry hair as the multiple surfactants in it will make it more dry and frizzy.

Just as the brand claims, it works best on oily hair. But don't expect soft, bouncy and frizz-free hair unless you have a supply of soft water. For combination hair, post wash conditioner is compulsory if you are using it with hard water. Otherwise, pre-wash oil application is more than enough.

After the disappointing experience regarding the soapy, gag-inducing fragrance of the Rustic Art Aloe shampoo, this Rose version was a huge relief! It smells so soothing that i just scoop some foam out the hair and keep smelling it instead of rinsing it off :P :D

Availability: Available only online at: Rusticart.in, Amazon.in, Nykaa.com, Organicshop.in and many more.

Pros:
  • Soothing fragrance.
  • SLS and Paraben free.
  • Safe, non-toxic ingredients. 
  • Removes oil quite effectively. Hence, best for oily hair.
  • More moisturizing than their Aloe shampoo.
  • Makes hair look bouncy, shiny and healthy when used with soft water.
  • Very little quantity required.
  • Wonderful slip. Feels just like a silicone based shampoo while not actually containing any.
  • Budget friendly as it lasts a very long time(because of the slip and foam).
  • Eco friendly and Biodegradable.
  • Vegan and Cruelty free.
Cons:
  • Works well only with soft water. With hard water, it dries out the hair and makes it frizzy(which can be managed with a good conditioner though).
  • Available only online.
My Rating: 3.5/5

My Conclusion: If you have oily hair, have a soft water supply and are looking for a good budget friendly natural shampoo, then by all means, go for it. Otherwise, either be prepared with loads of conditioner at hand or just strike it off your list.
