Isododecane and Isohexadecane?

Are these cones? I was looking at the conditioner I used pre CG (that I loved) and it contains these. Besides these two I don't see any other things that look like cones.

This is the ingredient list:
water, behentrimonium methosulfate, cetearyl alcohol, isododecane, isohexadecane, keratin, hydroylzed keratin, oxidized keratin, vitis vinifera (grape) seed oil, hedychium coronarium (white ginger) root extract, tetrasodium EDTA, citric acid, methylchloroisothiazolinone, methylisothiazolinone, magnesium chloride, magnesium nitrate, fragrance, benzyl salicylate, hexyl cinnamal, limonene

Thoughts? It's the pm keratin rinse.


And a secondary question.. I also used to use the PT from the same line. It rocked but is packed with cones. If I want to use it occasionally, will they be removed with low poo?

water, cetearyl alcohol, isohedadecane, behentrimonium chloride, glycerin, amodimethicone, cetyl esters, dimethicone, behentrimonium, methosulfate, stearamdopropyl,dimethylamine, cetrimonium chloride, trideceth-12, panthenol, polysilicone-15, keratin, hyrolyzed keratin, oxidized keratin, wheat amino acides, polyquarternium-55,hedychium coronarium (white ginger) root extract, hydrolyzed vegetable progein, PG-Propyl silanetriol, citric acid, methylchloroisothizolinoe, methylchloroisothiazolinone, methylisothiazolinone, magnesium chloride, magnesium ntrate, fragrance, benzyl salicylate, hexyl cinnamal, limonene, linalool
2A/B. Mix of fine, medium, and coarse (mostly medium). Dense. Mix of normal and high porosity.

Silicones are suffixed -cone, -conol and -xane. TBH if you loved that deep treatment you probably loved the silicones, if you are going to clarify those off not sure what benefit you would get. Cocoamidopropyl betaine will remove silicones.

Highly recommend you read the 'curl chemist' series of articles here on NC by Tonya McKay, all basic questions on ingredients are covered.

I did a google search. Isohexadecane is a detergent cleansing agent, emulsifier,emolliet and thickening agent in cosmetics. Isododecane is used as an emollient and solvent.
