Ingredient Analysis
1. cleansing/lathering OR emulsifying agents ( Hexylene Glycol ) depending on the product, this ingredient cleanses; emulsifies; lathers; makes products foamy/creamy & spread better
2. Methyl glucose dioleate ( MethylGlucose Dioleate ) humectant emollient
3. Amphoteric Surfactants ( Lauramidopropyl Betaine,Cocamidopropyl Hydroxysultaine ) Amphoteric surfactants are well-established as extremely mild. They're used as primary surfactants in mild formulations. When combined with anionic surfactants, they can reduce irritancy potential.
4. Anionic Surfactants ( Sodium Laureth Sulfate,Sodium Cocoyl Sarcosinate ) Used as surfactants & emulsifiers in cleansers & can be irritating to the skin, depending on alkalinity, some are very gentle. It's important to remember though, that just because a cleanser has sulfates in it doesn't mean it'll be drying and irritating. Take note of the other ingredients in the product (like anti-irritants, emollients, moisturizers) and where on the ingredient list the sulfate surfactant is listed.

5. Butylene Glycol. solvent; penetration enhancer; humectant moisturizer; in cleansing creams it dissolves dirt, avoids the product from drying too quickly during the removal stage & helps formulas spread better
6. Caprylyl Glycol. An alcohol, derived from a plant which is used as an emollient and coconut derived preservative.
7. Polyquaterniums ( Polyquaternium- ) Film former and anti-static agent; used in haircare products; some are humectant moisturizers
8. Sodium Chloride. salt; used in exfoliators or as a thickener/stabilizer in a formula
9. Sodium Benzoate. Sodium Benzoate is used in skincare and cosmetics as a/an anti-corrosive, that masks the scent of other ingredients in a formula aka masking, preservative ingredient.
10. EDTA. Edta is used in skincare and cosmetics as a/an chelating ingredient.
11. Disodium EDTA. preservative & product stabilizer; helps the topical penetration of active ingredients; chelating agent
12. preservatives ( Phenoxyethanol ) Used as a preservative or enhances the efficacy of preservatives
13. saw palmetto ( Serenoa Serrulata ) may have anti-inflammatory effects, but there's little research to support this. Saw palmetto is said to limit testerone production, though I believe this effect may be referring to internal use, not topical use in skincare products.
14. thickener ( Sodium Sulfate ) thickens/stabilizes the product; generally, the more thickening agents used in formulating a cream, for example, may enhance its stability, but can also cause difficulty in spreading.
15. solvents ( Water ) solvent
16. Laureth-. surfactant: the higher the number, the more viscosity of the ingredient increases until it becomes a white waxy solid. Some research shows that the lower the value, the higher the risk of irritation.
17. Menthol. Anti-bacterial astringent; fragrance; that cooling feeling is your skin being irritated. Used as a denaturating and deodorizing solution.
18. sugar ( Sucrose ) humectant moisturizer; often used as a preservative substitute for glycerin
19. Aloe. emollient moisturizer with anti-inflammatory; antioxidant, & antibacterial qualities
20. PEGs ( PEG- ) helps "carry" other ingredients into the skin; emollient; emulsifier; sufactant (cleans); solvent; the lower the number following, the more it can penetrate the skin; keeps products stable
