Shampoos and Conditioners that are CG Safe

sfaithjsfaithj Posts: 106Registered Users
Is there a list somewhere of all the shampoos and conditioners that are free of silicones and sulfates?

Additionally, are any of the following silicones or sulfates?

c-14-16 Olefin Sulfonate
Cocamidopropyl Betaine
Acetamide Mea

Those are the questionable ingredients in my shampoo and conditioner and I'm wondering if they are CG Safe or not.

    Cocamidopropyl Betaine is a surfactant which is considered much less harsh then a sulfate. Its in alot of low poos.
