Biolage Ultra Hydrating Balm - CG Friendly?

Hi there, I'm fairly new to all this CG routine and its a lot to absorb!
I had been using the Ultra Hydrating Balm for quite a while because it has been the only thing I found that would detangle my curls! I stopped using it only because I couldn't find it easily. But I saw it again and am in desperate need of a good CG detangler (My Acitvate Hydrating Curls order is in the mail). I have been trying to slog through these boards and the ingredients articles to fugure out what's good/what's bad...My heads gonna 'splode :shock:

OK Here are the ingredients I found from the web:
Water/Aqua, Cetearyl Alcohol, Behentrimonium Chloride Glycerin, Amodimethicone, Cetyl Esters, Lanolin, Fragrance, Methylparaben, Cetrimonium Chloride, Tricontanyl PVP, Chlorhexidine Dihydrochloride, Propylene Glycol, Polysorbate-20, Shea Butter (Butyrospermum Parkii) Fruit, Algae Extract/Algae, Safe Leaf Extract/Salvia Officinalis, Pollen Extract, Saponaria Officinalis Extract/Saponaria Officinalis, Silk Amino Acids, Wheat Germ Oil/Triticum Vulgare, Lemongrass Extract/Cymbopogon Schoenanthus

(phew - its a good thing I didn't have to type all that by hand...)
Thanks in advance

    The Amodimethicone is techincally CG since the creator of CG has it in her products, but you may need to use a gentle shampoo once in awhile(it does build up in some people's hair, not all though). I believe that lanolin is not CG. The protein may be of concern to some, but is still CG. HTH
