Are either of these gels CG?

I used and loved Pantene gels before I went CG, and I'm wondering if either of these are CG.

Pantene Curl Shaping Gel:

Water, PVP, Laureth 23, VP/Dimethylaminoethylmethacrylate Copolymer, Triisopropanolamine, Carbomer, Methylparaben, DMDM Hydantoin, PEG 12 Dimethicone, Fragrance, Propylparaben, Panthenyl Ethyl Ether, Panthenol, Disodium EDTA

Now, I know it has a Peg silicone, and parabens, but...?

Pantene Classic Styling Gel:

Water, Laureth-23, PVP, Carbomer, Benzyl Alcohol, Triethanolamine, Polyquaternium-4, DMDM Hydantoin, Disodium EDTA, Fragrance, Panthenyl Ethyl Ether, Panthenol

Anything up here? I've never heard of benzyl alcohol, has anyone?

I'm happy with my Upper Management Gel, but I can only buy it in 99 cent, 1 once travel bottle at my grocery store! It's annoying!

Oh, and has anybody used these gels with good results?

Tha - anks!
Hair Type: I was thinking thick, fine 3A, but honestly I have no clue! I do know I have a super flat top, and frizz on the sides.

    I am no expert, but they look ok

    as I understand it, the pantene curly series if CG b/c the cone has a PEG in front of it, meaning it is water-soluble
    3b/corkicelli, color treated, loves moisture, s-wavies on top, tight cork screws underneath and on the sides
    Product Junkie!
    Modified CG, on hard/well water
