|Ingredient||What it does|
|1sodium silicate||Buffering agent/pH adjuster and in anti-wrinkle products this ingredient glides across the skin in a uniform liquid film, then permitted to dry. As the product dries, there is a “contraction” on the skin, as the sodium silicate tends to pull on the skin and make it appear tauter and firmer.|
|2propylene glycol||solvent; humectant; gives a product "slip"; helps "carry" other ingredients into the skin; also enhances the efficacy of preservatives|
|3Glycerin||A humectant moisturizer; usually used as a base in (light) moisturizers|
|5citric acid||mainly used as a cleaning agent & preservative; pH adjuster; in higher concentration it's an AHA (in peels & antiaging products)|
|6centella asiatica||antibacterial, anti-psoriatic, and wound-healing properties|
|7Magnesium Aluminum Silicate||a natural mica used as an alternative to talc, as a binding agent; gives a smooth feel|
