Default Renpure Argan Oil Conditioner?

Hi. Has anyone out there tried Renpure Argan Oil Luxurious Conditioner? Just bought some today. Contains Silicone Quaternium-17, which I think is 100% water soluble. Other than that, the ingredients look totally CG. Thanks!

Okay... just used this condish. It STINKS! I'm sitting here with wet hair and I'm feeling slightly nauseous. I'm hoping the smell goes away when my hair dries. I'll keep you posted.

Upate: here is information from Renpure re quat-17:


It is partially water soluble. Silicones in general are hydrophobic, which means they hate water and are not water soluble at all, which is why they make excellent waterproofing ingredients. However, once you start reacting them with other chemicals, you can modify their feel and solubility. In this case, by making a positively charged molecule out of the silicone, a quaternium, you do 2 things. First you increase the water solubility, making it much easier to formulate into water based systems like our shampoos. The second thing is that because of the positive charge, it is now much more substantive to the hair; it has become more like a conditioning agent. This allows the silicone to hang on to the hair helping repair damage, adding shine and creating a smoother texture.

I know, long answer, but this is a rather unique ingredient, it is patented, and I wanted to give you some background as to why we would use it.
