I ordered some of this off eBay a couple months ago. I discovered when I got it that glycerin is in the ingredient list. I tried it, just in case it was a mis-print, but my hair did NOT like it. I was totally bummed since it has such great reviews. I have recently discovered True Polaris Truly Curly Styling girl (thank you Curlsnswirls). It is sold on etsy and it is an FSG gel. I ordered it just like her foolproof formula, but I had her leave out the protein, and I LOVE it!!!
