Korres products, ingredient geniuses, is this a CG brand?

Hi!
We've got Korres products in Germany and I was wondering if the brilliant curlies could let me know if the ingredients looked good and moisturizing... I've marked the ingredients that I wasn't sure about. Would this be safe, CG Conditioners? They seem to have lots of parabens though.... Their shampoos all have SLS as main ingredient after water and before coco betaine -not interesting for moisture.
Thanks! :wink:

    hey there,
    which conditioner (Urtekram) do you like most? do they have lots of proteins in them?

    i'm currently using the aloe vera. i have to check but i don't think so, my hair doesn't like cones and proteins. i also found a german webshop that carries a lot of brands.

    thank you so much for that link! I just discovered that my Douglas carries Tigi because of that. I'll go and check out the Urtekram conditioners tomorrow, my boyfriend loves their rosemary shampoo and although I don't use shampoo that much, I also found it to be super gentle.
    Oh, I feel much less alone now :)

    Not familiar with Korres, but I am pretty sure that Acetylated Lanolin Alcohol would be a fatty alcohol and would be moisturizing, not drying.
  • dutch girldutch girl Posts: 150Registered Users
    this is what wikipedia has to say about this ingredient

    Acetylated lanolin alcohol, sometimes known as "sheep alcohol" or wool alcohol, is a non-drying organic compound produced from lanolin, the fat of wool shearings, which has been reacted with acetic acid and a small amount of lye. There are synthetic variants available; however, the animal-derived product has more anti-allergenic tendencies. Acetylated lanolin alcohol is used as an emollient, to soften skin, but is highly comedogenic. For this reason, those who frequently erupt with whiteheads or blackheads are advised to avoid topical use of this substance on the skin.

    Highly Comedogenic?!? ew.
    But on the scalp? Should cause a problem. Maybe that's why certain products make me breakout on my back, my hair is bs lenght, so that would explain it.

    Thanks for the info! Didn't get the idea to check out Wikipedia :idea:

    They look heavy in oils rather than cones, waxes, etc so I'd say they look CG-promising.

    I will warn you that the only Korres conditioner I tested separated badly in a short period of time, despite the preservatives, and had a cottage cheesy texture in my hand once it separated. If that happens to you, don't put it on your hair!

    Don't you just love wikipedia! :cheers: So much info!

    Hi Laurabeth!
    Thanks!
    I'm once again intensly searching for CG products I can buy locally. You're always a big help for me!!
    Korres is promoted as a 'natural' brand. So it does look promising.
