CG Ingredient Experts Needed!

Excuse my noob confusion here, but I have a question for those of you who are more chemical savvy than myself :tongue5:.

Methylchloroisothiazolinone and Methylisothiazolinone are two ingredients that are listed in many of the Suave Naturals conditioners that are hailed as CG. But aren't we always warned that chemicals ending in -one are in fact not CG? I was reading this article-

And it says these two ingredients are in fact preservatives, even though they end in -one... So is my info wrong, or is there something I'm missing as to why CG's swear by these products for co-washes yet here they are with cones in them? TIA!
Wurly, fine, thin, moderately to heavily porous. Mod CG.

    You should be aware of ingredients ending in 'cone, 'xane, & 'conol. The two that you listed are preservatives.

    Cone's will actually end in cone, conal or xane. The 'one isn't a 'cone. So the information you have about the Methylchloroisothiazolinone and Methylisothiazolinone is correct they are indeed preservatives and not cones.

    Greengrl- sorry the link didn't work, I must have posted it wrong. I got the link from the same guide that QuirkyYogini posted too.

    Thanks for help on the confusion ladies, you've all been such a big help! :toothy7:
