My hair used to love this...

I have a deep-conditioning treatment I've been using for years, but now that I went CG I'm not sure whether I can keep using it.
It's a product I found in Italy so I'm not sure whether any of you know it, it's called Keramine H Restructuring Cream. The ingredients:

I see written there a saccharomyces/silicon ferment, does that mean I can't use it? I have no idea what all of those saccharomyces/ferment things are so I was wondering if any of you was able to help. I'd hate to let go of this DT because it's great for my wavy hair, but if I have to, I have to.
It should be fine to use. Saccaromyces /silicon ferment is an extract of yeast that is fermented in the presence of silicon ions. The iron, copper, zinc, and magnesium ferments should be similar ingredients, except the yeast is fermented in the presence of other ions (iron, copper, zinc, magnseium) instead of silicon. I don't see any ingredient that's prone to buildup, so if you like it, feel free to continue using it.

So even if it IS fermented in the presence of silicones, it doesn't mean the thing itself contains them? That's good, I'm really happy I can keep using it.

Thanks a lot for your help! (:
A 2C, hopefully something more as my hair gets redefined. Lots of chemical/heat damage to get rid of! Currently at shoulder length, aiming for mid-back.

(Any HtBlack you find anywhere on the internet is most likely always moi! :3)
It isn't fermented in the presence of silicones. Saccaromyces /Silicon ferment is fermented in the presence of silicon ions, which are not silicones. Silicon is a metallic element, where a silicone is a man-made substance. There are no silicones in that deep treatment.

Oh my god, I just facepalmed so much. I guess that's when my not being an English native speaker kicks my ass... and believe it or not, I'm graduated in chemistry, although I haven't dealt with it in a few years now. Goes to show how much our education system cares about implementing subject-specific English lessons in our classes... then again, Italy for you.

We call Si silicio, while we call silicones siliconi, so I hadn't thought it might be Si at all. XD thank you for enlightening me!
