Default safe cones?

Hi, I've changed countries so I am looking for new products. I found some conditioners today that I think are ok but just wanted to ask those with more knowledge

I did some searches and either found nothing or found confusion LOL.

1 of the conditioners is Herbal Essences Hello Hydration, reading through the boards I see people use this but I also know HE changes it's ingredients from country to country. The ingredient in question is BIS- Aminopropyl Dimethicone.

The other conditioner is called David Babaii, Hydrating conditioner, again I looked on the boards. One person has posted that it has cones in it. The cone listed is Cetyl Triethylmonium Dimethicone Copolyol Olivate. I'm asking as I read somewhere else that Dimethicone Copolyol is a safe cone ie water soluble.

Any advice gratefully received.

BIS- Aminopropyl Dimethicone is a partially water soluble cone similar to amodimethicone.
Dimethicone Copolyol is water soluble, but I have no idea about Cetyl Triethylmonium Dimethicone Copolyol Olivate. Have you tried googling it? Sometimes googling gives you info about specific ingredients.

The BIS-cone is easily removed with Cocamidopropyl betaine. I use HEHH with the bis-cone now and then and dont have any issues. Not sure about the other one you mentioned though

just googled the longer one and found that it's used in quite a few 'natural' hair products, skin cleansers and body creams. One site says it's an olive oil derivative with a carboxy silicone complex. Now need to find out what carboxy means lol.
