I so want to try the GVPCB but I won't until they reformulate it without parabens. But I hear it's outstanding.

You ladies have convinced me. Next time at Walgreens I'm gonna give YTC a try. You're absolutely right it's all about the formulation. If the moisture's in check then I shouldn't have to worry about those salts too much. . .
