  • A hair stylizer? 
  • Yes, but anything special about the ingredient list?

    It's for the EU since the terms Aqua & Parfum are used and they list the fragrance allergens.  
  • The ingredient listing is messed up - commas missing and ingredient names joined together.

    they've also misspelt "benzalkonium" and left out the hyphen in "PEG-90M"

  • You guys are such perfectionist! 

    It has actually been listed like that (can you believe?) also, it is a curl cream that is being retailed at £45.

    Bill, thank you...took your advice and submitted the form. Will keep you posted how it goes.
