Is this conditioner CG?

Ingredients:
Aqua, cetaryl alcohol, cetrimonium chloride, phenoxyethanol, isopropyl alcohol, parfum, methylparaben, panthenol, CI 77891, quaternium-80, propylene glycol, polysorbate 20, butylphenyl methylpropional, hexyl cinnamal, limonene, hydroxyisohexyl 3-cyclohexene carboxaldehyde, aloe barbadensis, alpha-isomethyl ionone, citronellol, citric acid, sodium sulfite, potassium sorbate, sodium benzonate, ascorbic acid, propylparaben, isobutylparaben, ethylparaben, butylparaben.

Phew. It has a very long list of ingredients, lots of chemicals, but I didn't see anything in there that i reconized as something that shouldn't bee in a CG conditioner. However, I am far from an expert on this (yet), so some help would be nice.

    It has a drying alcohol in it. What is it?

    Yeah, I'd be worried about a drying alcohol that far up in the ingredients list, plus the "sodium sulfite" I would probably avoid.

    OK, thanks guys. I'll see if I use it or not. It is a Wella Conditioner for dry and damaged hair, that is sold in Norwegian super markets. I have big problems finding CG-friendly products here.

    The conditioner I currently use is from Lush and contains Sodium Lauryl Sulfate. Would this Wella conditioner, with the drying alcohol and the sodium sulfite be better or worse than the lush conditioner with the following ingredients?
    Lavender Flower Infusion (Lavandula hybrida), Rosemary Infusion (Rosmarinus officinalis), Agar Infusion, Cetearyl Alcohol, Propylene Glycol, Cetearyl Alcohol (&) Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Cetrimonium Bromide, Lemon Oil (Citrus limonum), Benzoin Resinoid (Styrax benzoin), Fresh Lemon Juice (Citrus limonum), Citral, Limonene, Perfume.

    If you can maybe water down the LUSH conditioner to sort of weaken it, I'd probably go with that. But, you could do the same thing with the Wella. Maybe let your hair "decide".
