When California Naturals says plant-powered, they really mean it. The chlorophyll-backed formula will have you green with envy, and that was exactly what actor Owen Wilson wanted to bring to the table when he joined as the brand’s official Chief Shampoo Officer (CSO).

“As our first official product launch since I joined California Naturals as Chief Shampoo Officer, I wanted this to be special,” Wilson says. “And I think it is!”

The moisture line launched just last week and includes a shampoo and body wash that have a lush and lovely green tone through the addition of chlorophyll, the oyxgenated compound in plants that give them their gorgeous greens. Infused with guava seed oil and silk protein, the collection rounds out with a nourishing conditioner that’s safe for color-treated hair.

“Is this Moisture line the can’t-live-without-it holy grail of the shower?” Wilson asks. “I don’t know, but it is my personal favorite. They’re designed for those with hair and skin on the drier side, so it’s incredibly hydrating, but everyone will love these—especially because of the scent.

“And how would I describe the scent? Imagine yourself walking through a freshly cut lawn while eating ripe figs. Yeah, now you got it. That’s the scent. And I can’t wait for these to hit the shelves!” Wilson explains.

How Owen Wilson Joined California Naturals

According to founder of California Naturals, Shelby Wild, Wilson started out as a fan of their natural and simple formulas. “We couldn’t have been more excited to learn Owen was a fan of our products, and having him involved with the brand in a bigger way has been incredible for its evolution,” Wild says. “Outside of naturally embodying the laidback, approachable spirit of California Naturals—and having great hair!—Owen has been instrumental in tailoring our creative approach for our nationwide audience.”

More than just the new celebrity face for the brand, Wilson is an investor, advisor and infusing his sense of humor into the advertising campaign.

“You know I never took Chemistry,” Wilson says in the promotional video for joining the brand. He’s standing in a beautiful kitchen, mixing beakers of unlabeled oils and elixirs, by vibe alone. “But this whole process has convinced me…I think I would have been pretty good.”

And Now: The Review

What is Wilson’s in-shower line debut like?

To say the line has grown on me is an understatement I’m using to create a plant pun. Really, the whole line is perfect for someone like me. I really need that squeaky-clean finish to feel clean, but I don’t want to ruin my hair and skin’s moisture on the way.

The Benefits:

The body wash boasts the deepest green color of the collection. And it goes a long way without needing a huge handful of product to get you fully cleansed. And Wilson is definitely right, the scent of sage, musk and palo santo is wonderful and fresh. Vitamin E and avocado oil work alongside the oxygen-rich chlorophyll while aloe and coconut hydrate.

The shampoo nourishes dull strands with vitamin B5 and wild-harvested marula oil. This leaves hair feeling clean, but not stringy or dry. I’m someone who struggles between dry ends and oily roots. And while this conditioner is formulated with extra-dry hair in mind, it doesn’t weigh my hair down at all. The light-as-air formula is the perfect way to condition without over-burdening your strands or undoing that good cleansing work you just did.

Key Ingredients:

Chlorophyll, Aloe Vera, Vitamin Bf, Wild Harvested Marula Oil, Avocado Oil

Free From:

Parabens, Sulfates, Phthalates, Gluten

The Bottom Line:

California Naturals was already a phenomenal brand with a great reputation. They have a commitment to naturally derived ingredients, 100-percent recyclable bottles and being ocean and reef safe. And the addition of Owen Wilson and the moisture line into the equation takes it all to the next level. At the end of the day, this is ultra-affordable shower care with luxury-level formulas, and that’s exactly why Wilson was drawn to it in the first place.

“I love the simplicity and purity of the product and how easy it is to use,” Wilson explains. “Heavy is the head (and hair) that wears the crown of Chief Shampoo Officer, but I look forward to meeting the challenge with California Naturals…whether it be at the beach, getting out of the shower, heading to dinner, or just starting the day!”
