When Deva changed the ingredients (I think from the original ones) several years ago, they didn't change the labels for a LONG time. There was a really long thread on nc.com with irate consumers!
gardencurls, as I said in post #6, a product can be what ever the manufacturer wants to call it. I really wouldn't perseverate about it. It just goes to show that you need to become ingredient savvy and make decisions based on what you want from a product.
