IngredientWhat it does
1salicylic acidinduces exfoliation in oily areas of skin; oil-soluble so can penetrate pores to exfoliate inside; prevents clogged pores; mildly anti-inflammatory; higher concentrations help fade post-acne marks
3zinc gluconateProven to treat inflammatory acne; also preventative. Reduces the production of Squalane, a component of human sebum.
4Tetrasodium Glutamate DiacetateUsed as a chelating, dispersing agent as well as a preservative booster alternative to EDTA
5sodium chloridesalt; used in exfoliators or as a thickener/stabilizer in a formula
6propylene glycolsolvent; humectant; gives a product "slip"; helps "carry" other ingredients into the skin; also enhances the efficacy of preservatives
7PEG-7 Glyceryl CocoateCleansing surfactant; Solubilizer; makes the product smooth and foamy
8panthenolhumectant emollient moisturizer; anti-inflammatory
9niacinamideProven healing antioxidant; stimulates collagen; some UV protection; reduces hyperpigmentation; anti-inflammatory; anti-acne; anti-rosacea
10Lauryl Glucosidea non-ionic cleansing surfactant; has the slowest to disperse foam, compared to the other most commonly used alkyl polyglucosides (coco glucoside and decyl glucoside). Yields a more stable foam and its high viscosity is great if the product is intended to be thick
11GlycerinA humectant moisturizer; usually used as a base in (light) moisturizers
12Cocamidopropyl Betainefoam boosting, hair moisturizing, cleansing surfactant, viscosity controlling
13citric acidmainly used as a cleaning agent & preservative; pH adjuster; in higher concentration it's an AHA (in peels & antiaging products)
14caffeineconstricts the skin; may be anti-inflammatory but also irritating; a potential antioxidant (there is no independent research that caffeine helps cellulite); aids ingredients to penetrate the skin
15biotintexturizer; no reported skin benefit when applied topically; may regulate sebum
16betainea humectant moisturizer; can enhance the texture and height of foam
17benzyl alcoholpreservative; solvent; fragrance; may cause irritation
18Ammonium Glycyrrhizateanti-inflammatory; anti-allergic; the root has been proven to treat hyperpigmentation so its used in whitening products
