|Ingredient||What it does|
|1Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil||emollient, hair conditioner, masking, skin conditioner, solvent - can be pore-clogging for some|
|3lavender||Mainly used for aromatherapy than skincare; mild antimicrobial/anti-inflammatory effects make it useful as part of a preservative system in a product; fragrance components oxidize on skin & can cause irritation|
|4glyceryl stearate||self-emulsifying emollient & thickening agent, the higher up an ingredient list it is, the thicker the formula|
|5(lemon)||Lemon extract in skincare is a known skin sensitizer and irritant. It can have antibacterial properties but its incredibly irritating, as lemon juice has a pH of 2, which is very acidic and its use is linked with damage to your skins acid mantle. Lemon extract/juice/peel/oil does way more harm than good. Using lemon juice on your skin, or products containing lemon extract, lemon oil, lemon peel and even other citrus extracts and peel oils (like orange, mandarin, grapefruit, etc.) can cause brown discolorations and red rash looking irritation when you go out into the sun. This is a reaction known as phytophotodermatitis.|
|6Butyrospermum Parkii||emollient & occlusive anti-inflammatory moisturizer; contains allantoin, phytosterols, fatty acids & vitamins A,D&E BUT may break out some people due to its richness|
