I've been hunting for a CG gel that does not have humectants. I just came across this and it looks like it fits the bill but I'm not that good at checking labels so I wanted to make sure. What do you think?

    Looks humecctant free to me. I'm not sure about Phenoxyethanol, but it is very low on the list anyway. It does seem quite oil heavy. This could be good or bad, depending you your hair.
