I guess it's pretty close although if the ingredients are listed in order of strength Equate has Glycerin 2nd, so maybe there is more glycerin in Equate than CK but I don't know what the diff in performance is because I have never tried CK.

I dilute 4 oz Equate (squeeze the tube til empty) w/4 oz water -- shake it up good and apply it in puddles on each side, back and top. I have also diluted that mixture down and put some leave in either KCKT or any conditioner and some more water and used it as a refresher spray in the morning. Works great......
