Review: Nature's Gate Tea Tree Shampoo

Pros                                                                          Cons                       
-Effectively cleans hair & soothes scalp.                     -Rated 5 on EWG (moderate hazard)
-Lasts a long time                                                      -Doesn't smooth out knots well
-Company is partnered with WaterAid                       -Has artificial fragrance
-Innovator on Compact for Safe Cosmetics                -Has COCAMIDE DEA
-Not tested on animals                                               
-Reasonable price ($10)
-No parabens or phthalates

Conclusion - I am disappointed that this product has a "moderate hazard" rating on EWG. I purchased it at Whole Foods and thought, therefore, that it would get a good score. I appreciate that Nature's Gate is associated with charities and is part of the Compact for Safe Cosmetics, but I am still searching for a shampoo that is rated 0-3 on EWG.
