help deciphering ingredients?
I unearthed a tube of this today from my mountain of hair products and I couldn't see any obvious 'cones so I'm wondering if it is safe to use now that I'm doing the CG thing. I know the mineral oil is a problem for some people - but I know I have recently bought some CG-approved products that also had mineral oil in them (and won't the oils in co-washing help dissolve the mineral oil when I wash?). Anyway, can anyone let me know if this stuff seems safe to use?
Aqua/Water, Cetearyl Alcohol, Paraffinum Liquidum/Mineral Oil, Dipalmitoylethyl Hydroxyethylmonium Methosulfate, Cetyl Esters, Cetrimonium Chloride, Pyrus Malus Extract/Apple Fruit Extract, Parfum/Fragrance, Methylparaben, Prunus Armeniaca Seed Powder/Apricot Seed Powder, Niacinamide, Pyridoxine HCl, Butyrospermum Parkii Butter/Shea Butter, Olea Europaea Oil/Olive Fruit Oil, Citric Acid, Saccharum Officinarum Extract/Sugar Cane Extract, Benzyl Alcohol, Persea Gratissima Oil/Avocado Oil, Linalool, Ribes Nigrum Oil/Black Currant Seed Oil, Butylphenyl Methylpropional, CI 19140/Yellow 5, CI 15985/Yellow 6, Citrus Medica Limonium Peel Extract/Lemon Peel Extract, Camellia Sinensis Extract/Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract.
Oh, I unearthed something else: Ion Effective Care Treatment - just a single packet of it - but doesn't it look like there is a 'cone in it? I think it might be a protein treatment - which I would like to try - but not if there are silicones in it. Can anyone tell me for sure??
