  1. Thank you so much for this information. I’ve always wondered if Arbonne was as good as they say it is. I recently came across the brand DIME. Have you done any research on their products?

  2. Do you have any suggestions for dishwashing soap for a home with very hard water?

  3. I purchased your e-books bundle recently and now I really want to try Pure Haven’s shampoo and conditioner. I am interested in purchasing/joining for the wholesale prices. Could you please give me some more info?

    1. Hi Krista: Good idea! Many people do that to get wholesale prices. You can join with one of the 3 product collections. Please email me and I will send you a pdf describing the collections. ~Irina

  4. I just stumbled across your website and your deep dives on product labeling. Thank you for making this so clear to understand. I also appreciate your comparisons. I saw your post on BeautyCounter but I didn’t see any direct comparison to Pure Haven and BeautyCounter. I see the preservative methods are different and would be considered “cleaner” in the Pure Haven products but I am curious what your direct comparison is otherwise to these two brands.

      Hello, Tami! Thank you for reaching out to I Read Labels for You! Both Pure Haven and those BC products that we approve of are fine. It is the matter of personal choice and potential sensitivities to individual ingredients. You can check out the list of BC products that we have looked into and approve of here (the list is not comprehensive, though):

  5. Hello, Irina:

    I’ve been using Light Mountain henna for the past year,
    but my temple grays still resist coloring, my scalp itches like crazy,
    and worse, I get such a headache from the smell that I need aspirin.

    I really want to stay on the natural path as much as I can,
    but until I shave my head so I can try Hairprint,
    I’m thinking of trying semi-permanent color with no developer,

    Do you recommend this alternative?
    And what about TEA?
