Not sure if these ingredients are okay.

I had a Redken product called water wax. Here are the ingredients:
Water, peg-40, hydrogenated castor oil, ppg-5-ceteth-20, steareth-20, propylene goycol, glycerine, CEA-Oleth-3, phosphate, C12-15, alkyl benzoate, octyldodecyl, neopentonate, hydrolyzed wheat protein, hydrolyzed wheat starch, mica, phenoxyethnol, disodium EDTA, ethylparaben, methylparaben, titanium dioxide (CI 77891), FD&C blue No 1 (CI42090), DC Red No 33 (CI17200) and fragrance.
I'm confused about the ethylparaben and methylparaben? Please let me know. Thanks.z0tdntknw.gif

    Ethyl and methylparabens are used as preservatives.

    The thing that catches my eye is the castor oil, but if that comma isn't supposed to be there, and that's PEG-40 hydrogenated castor oil, then that's water soluble. Looks like it's okay to me, but I'm not one of the experts. :D
