This Best-Selling Natural Shampoo Has Stimulated Over 30 Million Scalps Around The World

Master Formulator and “Curious Hairdresser” Philip B. Turned The Power Of Botanicals Into One Of The World’s Purest, High-Performance Hair Care Brands


 

In a world filled with uninspired and under-performing personal care products, it can be difficult to find that needle in a haystack. While manufacturers continue to churn out products based on the old adage, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” Philip B. is not one of them. 

 

PHILIP B.
Celebrity hairstylist and Founder of PHILIP B. BOTANICALS, Botanically Powered Haircare Since 1991

 

In a recent interview with Beautytap, Philip passionately explained what motivated him to begin formulating products more than 30 years ago. From his first commercial product, the Philip B. Rejuvenating Oil, in 1992 to having his botanical, plant-based hair care solutions sold in more than 40 countries, it’s easy to see why celebrity fans like Sandra Bullock, Nicole Kidman, The Rolling Stones, and so many others have put their hair health in the hands of his pioneering products.

 

A hairdresser by trade and botanical formulator prodigy, Philip B.’s intense interest in problem-solving via high-performing healing extracts place him in a league of his own. You’d never build a home without a solid foundation, and scalp health plays an integral role in healthy hair. Hairdressers are often the first to spot the telltale signs of stress and underlying medical conditions on their clients’ scalps. 

 

“Great hair,” Philip says, “comes from a great scalp, and when you have psoriasis and dandruff or inflammation it affects follicle health and hair growth.  I want to be the problem solver with smart solutions because people come to me as a hair expert and I have a responsibility to give them informed responsible answers and products.”

“Great hair comes from a great scalp.” – Philip B.

 

Creating Solutions, Innovations, and Formulas That Deliver

 

Most people can relate to Philip’s experience with disappointing or lackluster offerings. “I didn’t feel anything, and I was hungry to feel it.” Philip recognized that hair care products were missing a key component – “engaging the senses to create a physical and multi-sensory, emotional connection to the ingredients included.” Once he recognized that big businesses weren’t going to formulate products that united the senses or achieve the connection he was craving, he decided to make them himself. 

 

“I want to feel emotion. I want to feel joy. I want to feel wow!” – Philip B.

 

An Extraordinary Sensory Experience

 

At first glance, the two ingredients gracing the Peppermint Avocado Shampoo label may conjure up images of nutrient-rich salads, but it’s your scalp and hair that’s being nourished. This shampoo isn’t just a cleanser; it’s a treatment, or to use Philip’s description, “It’s rocket fuel” in terms of improving circulation and deep cleaning the scalp. And considering that “humans can discriminate at least one trillion olfactory stimuli,” you’ll immediately know that something powerful is going to happen when you take your first whiff. 

 

After listening to his interview and experiencing his shampoo firsthand, all I can say is, “I get it!” After working up the lather, I allowed it to work its magic. As I continued to shower, my scalp began to feel like it awoke from a long winter’s rest. As someone with a regular scalp care routine, I was more than stunned. I was awestruck by the sensation of my scalp being invigorated. Although the scent disappeared down the drain, the sensation of having truly done something to detox my scalp remained.

Botanicals Are Medicines

 

Not only are Philip B.’s ingredients hand-selected, from sustainable sources but they are also “active botanicals at levels formulated for efficacy.” What does that mean? The ingredients he meticulously selects and formulates for all of his products with concentrations to ensure they deliver benefits of the highest quality, luxury, and maximum results. 

 

A study published in a 2014 Toxicological Research article revealed that a 3% peppermint oil concentration “showed the most prominent hair growth effects; a significant increase in dermal thickness, follicle number, and follicle depth” compared to three other alternatives including 3% minoxidil (a prescription topical agent that comes with a host of problematic side effects). The same study noted that peppermint oil stimulates hair growth during the anagen phase without causing other bodily changes. And this clean, powerful extract is the star of Philip’s creation. 

 

 

Refreshing Transparency In An Opaque World

 

When it comes to labeling, Philip B.’s packaging lists the exact quantity of the active ingredient right on the front of the bottle – a rarity for hair care brands. Transparency in his ingredients is of the utmost importance for Philip. His Peppermint Avocado Shampoo, now celebrating its 30-year anniversary, features 2.3% pure peppermint oil, which removes excess oil and product residue. It also contains 16 plant extracts, including Panax Ginseng Root Extract, a humectant that has been used in Chinese medicine for centuries and preserves moisture in the scalp. Urtica Dioica (Nettle) Extract has astringent properties, so it “reduces [sebum production] and tightens the skin’s follicles to treat oily scalp and hair loss [as well as] dandruff.” 

 

The Peppermint Avocado Shampoo leaves the scalp clean without being stripped and refreshed without being irritated. A “wow” experience indeed.

This shampoo is a game-changer. I bought a few small bottles to share with my friends, and we all fell in love with it instantly. It truly is an experience, and I look forward to it because I feel like it wakes up my entire being. The fact that it also volumizes my fine hair is an added bonus.

"Genius" is spot-on, James. Philip's Peppermint Avocado Shampoo is the embodiment of his personality: intense and energizing. It's such a pleasure to use, and I could listen to him talk all day. He's a wealth of knowledge and so generous with his time. I've already purchased some of his other products and think the Beautytap community will as well.

Wow this is wonderful! I haven't seen such a hair product before that improves circulation and yet is deeply cleaning too. I am also intrigued by ginseng being used in a hair product.

Believe me, you'll FEEL it happening with the very first use. Lather up your hair and give it a minute to start working while you shower. Everyone I've shared this shampoo with has come back with the same response: "I LOVE this!"

With so many hair care products out there it’s hard to find your perfect brand. After the masterclass with Philip B I’m beyond excited to try the products because I’m someone who deals with a dry scalp several times throughout the year. Since this issue I’ve realized my hair has not grown at the same pace it use to. I’m excited to see how the peppermint oil & ginseng root extract benefits my current hair situation .

I'm looking forward to your review, Sam. Follow Philip's guidance and let the lather sit for a few minutes while you shower. The sensation kicks in after about 30-45 seconds, and it's a shocker. Since I started using it, I haven't used my regular scalp scrub because I don't feel like I need it. It also gave my hair more volume, which I didn't think was even possible. Amazing stuff!

Thanks for letting me know ! I’m so excited to review

Wow peppermint avocado shampoo sounds amazing. I have been looking for a deep scalp cleanser so I will definitely try this product and see if it works for me

The very first experience will be shocking. After about 45 seconds, you'll feel it .... I mean, you'll really feel it working. After giving samples to my clients, they're already ready to buy the full-sized version. I've never felt anything like it!

Philip is an absolute genius and his products are a revelation. Grateful to him! I’ve used the Peppermint Avocado Shampoo for years. It’s one of my favorites, along with every other single product in his collection. Perfection!

Ever since I watched the Beautytap Talks interview, I've been hooked. I ordered a few products (including the Peppermint Avocado Shampoo) even before finishing the interview! The litmus paper example for the Toning Mist had me scrambling for my wallet. LOL! I'm so thankful to Beautytap for helping me discover his products.

That peppermint avocado shampoo sounds divine! I struggle with dandruff so this is something I definitely need to get.

You really should give it a try, Brittaney! I bought several travel-size bottles to share with my clients and have received multiple texts that simply say, "I LOVE this shampoo!"

When Philip B. talks about his products you'd really see how passionate he is about it.

I could listen to him talk for hours, Gretchell (and I've listened to his interview at least three times and always take something new away with me). He is, indeed, passionate and intensely smart.
