The best thing about Tate's products, is that you can pronounce and are familiar with every one of the ingredients. Here's a sample from the ingredient list for the conditioner: Mountain Spring Water, Apples, Strawberries, Rose, Oranges, Clove, Ginger, Pineapple, Cranberries, Blueberries, Geranium, Raspberries, Blackberries, Celery, Orchid, Coconut, Lemons, Thyme, and lots of smiles, lots of hugs, and lots and lots and lots of love. As compared to a mainstream conditioner with ingredients like: Cetyl alcohol, PEG-180, Behentrimonium chloride, Amodimethicone, Hydroxyethylcelluose, Trideceth-12... the list goes on, but I think I will stop there.
The second best thing about Tate's is the variety of things that it can be used for, in addition to conditioning your hair. Here's a list of suggested uses on the back of the bottle: Hand/Body Lotion, Baby Lotion, Make-up Remover (tried it, works!), Poison Ivy, Shaving Lotion, Lip gloss, Acne, and Migraines (also tried it, works!) And there are so many more potential uses, the conditioner even comes with a small instruction guide.
In addition to the conditioner, I also have several other Tate's products. The Conditioner Wipes are a convenient way to apply lotion, or remove make-up. The Shampoo, which I also use for body wash and hand soap, smells like heaven and can be used to do the laundry, wash the dishes and clean the floor. The Toothpaste has a fresh minty taste and whitens your teeth without all those additives. The are many more products, such as sunscreen and and lip balm, listed on their website that I'm hoping to try out soon.
Give Tate's a try, it's an all-natural alternative to so many health and beauty products. You can't buy Tate's at the local drug store or grocery, so here are several options if you are interested (roll over to view link):
