I was just wondering the company "100% pure's shampoo line has a shampoo called. Yuzu & Pomelo Glossing shampoo's. The European ingredients are different from the american version. I could always buy on the U.K. Site

I noticed Sodium Cocoate is not used as a base on the European Version rather Flax Seed Oil is used. A lot less flowers are in the European Version as well.

List of difference between the UK and American Version:

United States:

Aloe Barbadensis (Organic Aloe) Leaf Juice*, Rosa Centifolia Flower Water (Organic Rose Hydrosol)*, Sodium Cocoate (Saponified Coconut) Oil, Vegetarian Glycerin, Extracts of Citrus Junos (Yuzu) Fruit, Citrus Grandis (Pomelo) and Fucus Vesiculosus (Kelp), Vegetarian Cellulose, Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Panthenol, Extracts of Camellia Sinensis (Organic Green Tea) Leaf*, Urtica Dioica (Nettle), Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf and Calendula Officinalis (Calendula) Flower, Cocos Nucifera (Virgin Coconut) Oil, Salt (French Sea Salt), Extracts of Origanum Vulgare (Oregano) Leaf, Thymus Vulgaris (Thyme) Flower/Leaf, Melia Azadirachta (Neem) and Lonicera Caprifolium (Japanese Honeysuckle), Citrus Paradisi Peel (Pink Grapefruit) Essential Oil
*Certified Organic

Europe:

Rosa Centifolia Flower Water (Organic Rose Hydrosol)*, Aloe Barbadensis (Organic Aloe) Leaf Juice*, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Butter, Linum Usitatissimum (Flax) Seed Oil, Cocos Nucifera (Virgin Coconut) Oil, Glycerine, Ceterayl Alcohol, Extracts of Citrus Junos (Yuzu) Fruit, Citrus Grandis (Pomelo) and Fucus Vesiculosus (Kelp), Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Calendula Officinalis (Calendula) Flower Extract, Melia Azadirachta (Neem) Seed Oil, Pantothenic Acid (Pro-vitamin B5), Extracts of Mentha Piperita (Peppermint) Leaf, Origanum Vulgare (Oregano) Leaf, Thymus Vulgaris (Thyme) Flower/Leaf, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Flower/Leaf/Stem, Hydrastis Canadensis (Goldenseal) and Lonicera Caprifolium (Japanese Honeysuckle), Citrus Paradisi (Pink Grapefruit) Peel Essential Oil
*Certified Organic

There are some benefits to the American Version as well though such as in the American version it's stated as Vegetable Glycerin unlike the European Version which just says Glycerin. Also there is no Green Tea in the European Version. Was just wondering why it is different. Is it European laws? Is the european one of higher quality? Love your products been using them for two years but I am just confused on which one is the intended formula and the most natural formula.
