Elucence Moisture Balancing Conditioner.

Hi all,

Lately I've been using Elucence Moisture benefits Shampoo and Moisture Balancing Conditioner but I'm unsure if I should use the conditioner every time. I think I should alternate it with a conditioner that is specifically focused on smoothing and hydration so I've purchased the new formula of White Camellia by Aubrey Organics, having never used it before. Is this a good option or do you know of something better? Basically a conditioner that is rich in natural oils/emollients without silicone and protein. Does the Elucence Conditioner contain protein? I know the shampoo has Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein but I don't seem to be able to identify any protein on the conditioner.

Ingredients: Panax Ginseng Root Extract, Cetraria Islandica (Irish Moss) Extract, Saccharomyces Cerevisiae (Brewer's Yeast) Extract, Gingko Biloba Extract, Pimpinella Anisum (Anise) Fruit Extract, Prunus Persica (Peach) Extract in Purified Water, Hexadecanol, Stearalkonium Chloride, Cetrimonium Bromide, Squalane (Olive Oil Lipid), Capric Caprylic Triglycerides (Coconut Fatty Acids), Panthenol (Pro-Vitamin USP), Biotin (USP), Imidazolidinyl Urea, Methylparaben (USP), Fragrance.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I really like ELUCENCE MOISTURE BALANCING conditioner. I'm no expert in analyzing ingredients but I don't see anything that screams protein in it. Rather, it's an emollient conditioner. I use it as a rinse out but also a dab as a leave-in sometimes. I think the first few ingredients are mostly botanicals - not sure what their properties are:
    Panax Ginseng root extract, cetraria islandia (Irish Moss) extract,
    saccharomyces cerevisiea (Brewer's Yeast) extract, Gingko Biloba extract, pimpinella anisum (Anise) fruit extract, prunis persica (Peach) extract in purified water,
    hexadecanol - FATTY ALCOHOL,
    stearakonium chloride,CATIONIC SURFACTANT
    cetRimonium bromide,CATIONIC SURFACTANT
    Squalane (olive oil lipid),
    Capric Caprillic Triglycerides (coconut fatty acids), Panthenol (pro-vitamin USP), Biotin (USP), imisazolidinyl urea, methylparaben (USP), fragrance
