Looking for a CG conditioner. Is this OK?

Hi! I am a newbie, excited to try the CG method. But I can't find the conditioners you talk about where I live, so I have to look myself at the ingredients list. I already clarified from silicones last night with a sulfate shampoo and conditioned-rinsed-out with Aubrey con. What I need now to start is an inexpensive conditioner for co-washing.

I have some conditioner my mother sent me from Spain that I think could do the job for now. But I'm not sure, could you please tell me if this is CG?

The name is Garnier Fructis Hidra-Liso Termo-Activo, and this is the ingredient list (I couldn't find it in the website, so I'm coying it from the bottle):

Aqua/ Water, Cetearyl alcohol, Elaeis guineensis oil, Palm oil, Behentrimonium chloride, Niacinamide, Saccharum officinarum extract / Sugar cane extract, Stearamidopropyl dimethylamine, Chlorhexidine dihydrochloride, Camellia sinensis extract / Camellia sinensis leaf extract, Benzyl salicycate, Isopropyl alcohol, Pyrus malus extract / Apple fruit extract, Persea gratissima oil / Avocado oil, Pyridoxine HCI, Citric acid, Citrus medica limonum peel extract / Lemon peel extract, Prunus armeniaca kernel oil / Apricot kernel oil, Hexyl cinnamal, Glycerin, Oryza sativa bran oil / Rice bran oil, Parfum / Fragrance, (FIL C89614/3)
2B Type?
Low-poo: NaturVital moisturiser Aloe Vera
No-poo: TBS Rainforest Moisture
Co-wash: Garnier Fructis Hidra-Liso Termo-Activo
Rinse-out: Aubrey Honeysuckle Rose conditioner
Gel: Garnier Fructis Aqua Gel Hidra Rizos

Yes, that is CG friendly. No silicones or sulfates in it. It does have Isopropyl Alcohol, which is a "bad" non-fatty alcohol that can cause dryness. It is fairly low in the ingredients list, so may not cause you any problems. Just something to watch out for.

I tried Google, and this looks like the product line. I did a Google translation, and clarified it where I could (high school Spanish class several years back). Maybe one of our Spanish speaking curlies can clarify further:

Garnier Fructis Hydra-Smooth Hydrating Fortifying Conditioner

Yes, it is the one of the link you provided. I checked for sulfates and silicones, but I didn't know about the good and bad alcohols. It has been very instructive, thanks a lot Geek_Chic!!

I think I'll use this conditioner for co-washing and the Aubrey as a rinse-out until I end the bottle, and then I will look for some other conditioner with better ingredients here.
