Potting soil without perlite?

Are there any organic potting soils that don't have perlite in it? The MGOPM is getting harder to come by. I spent the whole day checking out every store to only find the new Nature's care product. I know that I could've ordered it from Amazon, but I have everything to start the planted tank except the dirt.

So I'm just curious if any organic potting mix exist without perlite in it. I guess I can always remove them by soaking the soil forcing it to the top of the water.

When I set up my 29 earlier this year I couldn't find any without the perlite. It seems to have worked OK though.
