Aqua: Self-explanatory, it means water.
Cetyl Alcohol: It is an emulsifier derived from coconut oil or palm oil, responsible for creamy look of the conditioner. It does not harm the hair.

Behentrimonium Methosulfate: Used in conditioners, shampoos, and lotions to impart a slippery feel to the product. It is derived synthetically from rapeseed oil and is a very mild and effective ingredient that acts as an emulsifying agent and conditioning agent. It has no notable side effects if any and is safe to use and is also used in lotions and shampoos and conditioners for babies. It has the ability to penetrate up to the hair shaft making hair healthier and thus easy to comb and maintain.
Cetearyl Alcohol: Cetearyl Alcohol is a mixture of fatty alcohols of cetyl and stearyl alcohols derived from coconut and palm oil. It is used in cosmetics as a stabilizer to thicken an emulsion and keep it from separating, and as a foaming agent and it also contains properties which leave the feeling skin soft and smooth. Cetearyl Alcohol is generally classified as being of no to low hazard or toxicity (EWG).
Centrimonium Chloride: It is a topical antiseptic and surfactant, the surfactant molecules present in it deposit themselves onto the cuticle of the hair making it feel softer and also reduces static-induced flyaway hair.

Guar Hydroxypropl Trinonium Chloride (GHTC): A water soluble organic compound that is derived from guar gum, it has conditioning properties and aids in hassle free and easy combing of the hair.
Indian Gooseberry (Amla) Extract
Glyceryl Carylate and Glyceryl Undecylenate: Derived from Glycerin or refined vegetable oil is a conditioning agent and an emollient.
Rose & Jasmine Essential oil
I found after research that all of the ingredients used are low hazardous ingredients, most of them do more good for the hair than bad. This formulation is truly paraben and SLES free. I have used this product for an exact amount of 2 months. I used it first in winters for 1 month and then for 1 month in summers to be able to test it out properly and provide you with a review you can trust.
I have shoulder length curly hair that are very dry and brittle. I use conditioner every day I take a shower without skipping and this bottle is almost empty after 2 months, Perhaps 2 more uses out of it but no more.
For a Silicone Free Conditioner it left my hair feeling very soft and smooth, even the tips which are generally dry and brittle. I have not come across any other herbal conditioner which is SLES and paraben free leave my hair feeling so soft. I was and am very impressed. It left my scalp a bit greasy since in winter our scalp generally produces more oil, at least mine does! If you use too much it will give you a greasy look even in summers. If you only co-wash your hair, after 2 days you will feel build up in your hair and you will need to shampoo. I felt it really does what the brand promises it will and the relaxation the fragrance brings me is just a huge plus. It like to think of it as “Hair Spa At Home.”
- Smells nice if you like the smell of Jasmine & Rose. I do!
- SLES & Paraben free (What are Parabens?)
- No silicone are mentioned in the ingredients and thus I assume it is silicone free as well.
- Made my hair soft, soft and oh so soft!
- No shady ingredients are used.
- Good amount of quantity, for my shoulder length hair it lasted 2 months, and I do condition every time I shampoo i.e. 3 times a week.
- May not be easily available in your area.
- If you do not like the smell of rose or jasmine, you won’t like how it smells.
