Authenticity

Because of extreme demand for Wild Growth® products, concerns over product authenticity by end users turns into a forest fire of misinformation, leading buyer or potential buyers to not trust the genuine products to be truly genuine for a variety of reasons. Wild Growth Co. always investigates if fake claims are true. Consumers should be encouraged to know that 100% of these claims are false but occur from lack of good information that will instantly dispel suspicions. Below is a chronological fake suspicion clearinghouse or history of why suspicions are aroused and how they are dispelled with detailed explanations.

A lot of Fake suspicion hinges on an Amazon.com Top Critical review That shows a bottle received with 'fragrance, preservatives and other ingredients':


1.0 out of 5 starsHigh hopes shot down fast
ByJessicaon December 12, 2017
Size: 4 Oz|Verified Purchase
I was estatic about receiving this product because of awesome reviews I’d read. Ordered 12-7 received 12-13. after unboxing and comparing ingredients on bottle received to ingredients on wildgrowth.com it is displeasing to know the ingredients are not the same. The bottle I received shows last three ingredients to be fragrance, preservatives and other ingredients whereas the website displays oils of coconut, olive, jojoba, rice bran, cocoa butter ,acerola, pomegranate, rosehip,& pumpkin seed. Extracts of Mushroom, chick pea, lentil, cocoa mass , and sesame seeds. Essential oils of Clary sage , eucalyptus, frankincense , geranium, grapefruit and lavender.

FOR THE SAKE OF YOUR HAIR CHECK THE INGREDIENTS ON BOTTLE.

The website specially states what is NOT IN WILD GROWTH OIL #1 synthetics such as colors, preservatives,fragrance, vitamins, carbomers, and other polymers, silicon.

For those not seeing results, you probably received a dupe.
I will be requesting a refund.
 

 

We directly responded to Jessica's critical review on 05/07/18 with,

All the bottles that say 'fragrance preservatives and other ingredients' contains the genuine product as well. These bottles were
printed briefly in July 2017. The fragrance and preservative are the natural essential oils that have always been in the
products that are now actually listed. 'Other ingredients' was also used to replace 'Wild Growth Oil nutrient complex'
to actually conform with FDA Cosmetics act which allow for 'other ingredients' but does not allow non recognized
ingredients descriptions such as 'Wild Growth Oil Nutrient Complex'. While good for US laws., 'other ingredients'
was unacceptable for United Kingdom Trading Standards. So ''other ingredients' was removed while at the same time,
the essential oils were finally listed for the first time to avoid the the confusion that Jessica fell victim of when she
received those bottles made only during the month of July 2017. Wild Growth Co. then, not having room to explain the
Wild Growth Oil Nutrient complex on the bottle, made a separate explanation on their web site (see
http://www.wildgrowth.com/Wild%20Growth%C2%AE%20oil%20nutrient%20complex.htm). Essentially, the Wild
Growth Oil Nutrient complex is formed when the ingredients that are finally listed (that have always been used all
along throughout the years), undergo a twelve step proprietary extraction process. That is the key for why the product
works. In summary, rest assured that the varying listing versions belong to the original Wild Growth products. The
Final listing from January 2018 forward conforms exactly to the current web site listing. As the months roll by,
people will be seeing less and less bottles such as the ones Jessica ended up until they will not be seen any longer.
But her bottles are legitimate. Any one who has the ones she had should use and enjoy them.

History of Ingredients Listing Changes
Some people have suspected the existence of fakes or believed that the formula has changed primarily because of variations in the ingredients listing in 2017. Yet to this day, no fakes, confirmed by Wild Growth Co., actually exist. Below is a full history:
Over the years and till recently. Wild Growth Co. had changed the listing of the ingredients to be progressively more accurate by stating the actual raw ingredients that have been there all along.
Through a multi-step extraction and purification process ( Wild Growth® oil nutrient complex - a method exclusively developed and protected by Wild Growth Co. since 1985 which is even more important than the ingredients themselves--for more info, follow this link: http://www.wildgrowth.com/Wild%20Growth%C2%AE%20oil%20nutrient%20complex.htm ),

Also, the newly listed essential oils which could not fit on the bottle till now, were always used though not listed in the past. Historically, users have reported noting the presence of essential oils, despite the bottle not listing them.

http://www.wildgrowth.com/quality_assurance.htm

Basically, in earlier versions of ingredients listings, the end result of Wild Growths extraction procedures were listed
rather than the raw sources. Theses earlier lists were either misleading (example phosphorous is a hazardous
chemical but Wild Growth extracted safe, nutritional biologically bound phosphorous from raw ingredients) or not
recognized as ingredients at all (food or chemical) such as 'Wild Growth Oil nutrient complex' (This phrase was
removed from the listing but elaborated at: http://www.wildgrowth.com/Wild%20Growth%C2%AE%20oil
%20nutrient%20complex.htm)

The trouble that resulted from changing information on the the bottles to conform with trading a regulatory standards is
now over for 2018. It had to be done and in stages, so several different versions in back-to-back batches created an
uproar for some people.

Weird purple-blueish RESIDUE!
ByDae'Liciahon April 30, 2018
Size: 4 Oz|Verified Purchase
This makes my scalp super itchy. At first, I believed it was just the product working - after all, that's what everybody who's reviewing it keeps talking about! However, I've been using this product for 3 weeks now to grow back the balding spots around my edges, and I've seen literally no change from when I started using the product to now. As well, the product leaves this weird purple residue on the skin that no one seems to be addressing here.

We directly responded to Dae'Licia's critical review on 05/09/18 with,

Read the bottle instructions. It says 'Shake well, but no need to remix occasional dark sediment. Also,
wildgrowth.com explains more about the dark material (http://www.wildgrowth.com/concerns.htm). Often confused
for mold, it is material that gets past the filtration process, which doesn't either hurt or help performance. You may
have gotten a bottle towards the end of a production run. Itching is also thoroughly dealt with at
www.wildgrowth.com/concerns.htm . WG brings scalp cleansing and energy balance to resolution. Depending on the
healing/cleansing stage of the scalp, Wild Growth Oils can either stop itching (see
http://www.wildgrowth.com/Stop%20Itch.htm) or temporarily cause it . Some have endured the itching with the
product uncut and got results. See Amazon Conumer review ByQwn Blv on January 25, 2018-'I had an adjustment
period , as initially my scalp was flaky and itchy. However after 7-10 days, I no longer have dandruff nor itchy scalp.'
Also, 'January 8 2018 -Facebook
Erica Asjaee' My scalp was itchy & scabbed up when I first started but my hair did a 360'). Most however
cut the product/use less and less frequently. Using less has worked faster for some people. It would be a good idea to
do the same with the expectation that there will be less intolerable itching ( which does progressively reduce with
continued use), less dark color staining, and faster results. For ingredients listing variations despite no change of
ingredients used see updates at http://www.wildgrowth.com/Quality%20Assurance%20and%20Authenticity.htm

THERES IS NO FAKE VERSION OF THIS PRODUCT. I CHECKED BOTH OLD AND NEW. ALSO LOOKED AT WHAT THEY DID TAKE OUT. ONLY REALLY JOJOBA BUT, mines also say other natural ingredients Or in the bottle just not LISTED on the bottle.
We added a comment to Tyrina Carney's  review on 04/30/18 with

Wild Growth Hair Care For a spell, during the revision process 'jojoba' was left out, but it was later put back in. The dust has finally settled . Read the the now stable ingredients list at: http://www.wildgrowth.com/Ingredients.htm Nothing has ever changed. Just the listing that is more accurate.

There have been no fakes that have ever been confirmed in over 32 years of manufacturing Wild Growth.  Yet a few concerned users or potential users have expressed doubts regarding changes in quality and even authenticity of Wild Growth products.

Slight but noticeable variations in odor, consistency and color have been noted throughout the manufacturing history. This has been due to variation in raw material batches. The variations in characteristics have not and do not affect functionality of the products.

It is Wild Growth's proprietary methods of processing and testing, regardless of expected variations in raw materials that have occurred throughout Wild Growth's history, that make these products work. We choose the highest quality materials and do not skimp. We are a privately held company and have full control in making sure that the final product manufactured withstands the rigors that have made Wild Growth products so great.


Recently the change of ingredients listed have added to the confusion. We removed English and Spanish versions to
make the print larger. Then we have made a more precise ingredients list with names of ingredients we have been using all
along. The growth in the market place requires that our wording and ingredient names become more accurate and
precise in order to comply with trading standards. Yet to appear in late November 2017 will be the, hopefully, final
version with essential oils added on the list but were used in the products all along (essential oils Of Clary Sage,
Eucalyptus, Frankincense, Geranium, Grapefruit, and Lavender). Also, Jojoba oil was inadvertently left out in the newer updates and will be put back in. In general,the older ingredients lists were grossly inaccurate. But whichever bottle label versions are encountered. the product inside is the same. All the different ingredients list versions we have viewed belong to bottles containing genuine Wild Growth oils.

Furthermore, in the process of making changes back in 7/17, there was an error where a digit in the telephone number
was inadvertently changed. This has recently been corrected to 888 945-3476. If people were to cross reference the bad phone number (888 845-3476) with the phone number on the web sites(www.wildgrowthcompany.com or www.wildgrowth.com), they would see the correct 888 945-3476.

All final changes and the correction will be seen on bottles in the upcoming months.
 

Finally, there have been one or the other of two P.O. Boxes on the bottle, leading individuals to believe that one of them is a fake:

Wild Growth Co.
P.O. Box 14822
Scottsdale, AZ 85267

Wild Growth Co.
P.O. 2940
Saint Johns, AZ 85936

 

Rest assured that both P.O. boxes above are valid Wild Growth addresses.
