I still have an old can of wax, and "dread butta" from dreadheadhq, so here's ingredient lists exactly as they appear, parenthesis and all:WAX"Ingredients: Cera Alba (beeswax) cera microcristallina (microcrystaline wax), paraffinum liquidum (mineral oil), semen-inis canabis sativa oleum (hemp seed oil), tocopherol (vitamin E), parfume (fragrance)"BUTTER"Ingredients: Theobroma cacao (cocoa) extract, mineral oil (parafinum liquidum), microcrystalline wax (cera microcristallina), theobroma cacao (cocoa) seed butter, dimethicone, fragrance (parfum), tocopheryl acetate, benzyl alcohol, carotene (CI 40800)"Doesn't that sound delicious?Anyone care to comment or research some of these? I'm admittedly lazy, so I may or may not research them, considering I don't use these products anymore, I'm not sure it really matters to me what's in them, I just know they didn't work for me long term.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polydimethylsiloxanedimethiconelooks like at high temps its like a honey thick liquid but at normal temps becomes a solidin other words..more crap thats hard to get out without burning yourselfcera microcristallinatook some looking into but its a petroleum based waxseveral ingredients when searched brought up a site http://www.cosmeticsdatabase.com/splash.php?URI=%2Fingredient.php%3Fingred06%3D703957that is a database of potentialy hazardouse ingredients in skin products i didnt join though to research what it said, but i found it interesting that several of the ingredients i was unsure of brought up this site.some of the ingredients in the butta are just harmless conditioners (cocoa butter basicly which i use at times) but then they add wax to that too? that makes no senceim not gonna bother breaking down the ingredients in the wax cause well..its wax.. the primary ingredient ..wax.. never belongs in your dreads, the vitamin e though if used without wax can be goodMarianas Trench said:
