Paraben-free; sulfate-free; phthalate-free, cruelty-free.
Kaolin (clay) is fairly low down on the list of ingredients. Is it really fair for Aveda to call this a “Grooming Clay”?

A really, light, pleasant scent. Stays true to Aveda’s roots. Smells clean and not packed-full of chemical compounds.
Rich, spicy and refreshing aroma with kunzea, citrus and certified organic essential oils of spearmint, vetiver, and lavender.
Very creamy. Doesn’t feel like a clay.
Application and Styling
Beyond easy to apply and style with. Really responsive in the hair. Picks it up and allows to build volume. Weightless lift from root.
A light, natural finish to the hair. Looks healthy and smooth. Hair doesn’t dry hair and retains its moisture.
The hold is surprisingly good. Although the product looks like a cream, it holds well. For extra peace of mind, I’d recommend using a hairspray to lock it into place.
Washes out with ease. No stickiness or residue.
