Is this CG friendly?

I love v05 kiwi lime and vanilla mint conditioners for co-washing, and I bought a different type of VO5 and I'm unsure of whether it is also cg friendly. I compared the ingredient lists and they are different. Can anyone tell me if this is cg?

Water (Aqua, EAU), Cetyl Alcohol, Stearalkonium Chloride, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Panthenol, Hydrolyzed Keratin, Tocopheryl Acetate, Ascorbic Acid, Biotin, Niacinamide, Cetrimonium Chloride, Glyceryl Stearate, Alcohol Denat., Polysorbate 20, Disodium EDTA, DMDM Hydantoin, Fragrance (Parfum
I think it is. Don't see any silicones. Also it has biotin, shea butter, panthenol and keratin which are great ingredients.

It's not CG friendly; it has alcohol denat, a drying alcohol.

However I've found that if a drying alcohol like denat is very low in the ingredient list, it's no big deal for me at all. But everyone('s hair) is different.

List of bad, drying alcohols that should be avoided:
Alcohol
Menthanol
Ethanol
Propanol
SDA40 (SD alcohols)
Alcohol Denat
Specially Denaturated Alcohol
Isopropyl Alcohol
Propyl alcohol
Ethyl acohol

Good, fatty alcohols:
Cetyl Alcohol
Cetearyl Alcohol
Acetyl Alcohol
Steryl Alcohol
Stearyl Alcohol
Lauryl Alcohol
Lanolin Alcohol
Stearic Acid
C30-50 Alcohol

Is that the Shea cashmere one? I thought about buying it until I saw the alcohol denat on the ingredients list. It's pretty low on the list, but my hair seriously hates drying alcohols so I steered clear. I'm a vo5 junkie btw if you can't tell by my signature

Sorry I spoke too soon. Didn't catch that drying alcohol. I try to avoid them too. I wanted to try Shea Moisture's Restorative Elixir but it has SD 40 in it so I'm steering clear.

Shea cashmere is a once a week HG rinse out for me! Love VO5!!! The alcohol gives me not one issue, but then again, I rinse it all out. I think some drying alcohols are included in products to help emulsify? I could b wrong, but it's good to me
