new formula for biotera styling gel?

jctljctl Posts: 7Registered Users Curl Neophyte
I stopped by Sally today to pick up some replacement products, and didn't notice until I got home that they've not only changed the Biotera Styling gel Package design, they've also changed the formula slightly. I've used this product for years and really don't want to do without it. Has anyone used the new formula? Is it different? If it is, can anyone recommend a similarly-priced substitute that also has a fairly-soft, medium-firm hold without a strong scent?

I've listed the two ingredient lists below - the main change seems to be the addition of their "tri-soy complex," which must be the soy protein, the soybean oil, and the lecithin.

New Ingredient List: Water, Polyquaternium 4, Hydrolized Soy Protein, Gylcine Soja (Soybean) Oil, Lecithin, Urtica Dioica (Nettle) Extract, PPG 5 Ceteth 20, Cetrimonium Chloride, Glycerin, Citric Acid, Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Propylene Glycol, Tetrasodium EDTA, Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Methylisothiazolinone, DMDM Hydantoin, Alpha Isomethyl Ionone, Coumarin, Limonene, Linalool, Fragrance

Old Ingredient List: Water (Aqua), Polyquaternium 4, Urtica Dioica (Nettle) Extract, Arnica Montana (Montana Flower) Extract, PPG 5 Ceteth 20, Cetrimonium Chloride, Glycerin, Citric Acid, Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Propylene Glycol, Tetrasodium EDTA, Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Methylisothiazolinone, DMDM Hydantoin, Alpha Isomethyl Ionone, Coumarin, Limonene, Linalool, Fragrance

Thanks for your help!
