IngredientWhat it does
1artemisia vulgarisMugwort or common wormwood has no research showing it has any benefit for skin. Other sources claim it may have antibacterial properties, but can also be irritating.
2stearic acidemulsifier; cleaning agent; stabilizes emulsions; lipophilic thickener; texturizer. Stearic acid is naturally found in skin and is used in cleansers to reduce cleansing-induced damage, aid in moisturization, and replenish with skin-natural lipids.
3sodium bicarbonatebaking soda; used as a buffering agent and as a feature ingredient in certain Korean cleansers and exfoliants
4potassium hydroxideAKA Lye is used in a tiny amount in skincare as a pH adjuster. Most commonly used in cleansers as a base for liquid soaps and in higher concentrations is a significant skin sensitizer.
5polyisobutenefilm-former; thickener
6polyethyleneemollient; scrub agent; film former; stabilizer; binding agent; thickener
7PEG-7 Glyceryl CocoateCleansing surfactant; Solubilizer; makes the product smooth and foamy
8myristic aciddetergent cleansing agent; makes a product foamy. Can be drying.
9lauric acidin cleansers, this fatty acid is used as a base for detergent/cleansing agents; in leave-on products it's antibacterial & anti-inflammatory. Research has shown that lauric acid works on skin to control acne-causing bacteria.
10GlycerinA humectant moisturizer; usually used as a base in (light) moisturizers
11glyceryl stearateself-emulsifying emollient & thickening agent, the higher up an ingredient list it is, the thicker the formula
12fragranceFragrance in skin care is like spraying perfume on your face. Smells nice, but potentially irritating and damaging to your skin's acid mantle. Especially if these ingredients are high up on the ingredient list.
13EdtaChelating agents bind up trace metal ion contaminants in your water-containing cosmetic thus keeping the product microbe free for longer.
14Cocamidopropyl Betainefoam boosting, hair moisturizing, cleansing surfactant, viscosity controlling
15butylene glycolsolvent; 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
16betainea humectant moisturizer; can enhance the texture and height of foam
17Arnica Montana Flowermoisturizing
18(lemon)Lemon extract in skincare is a known skin sensitizer and irritant. It can have antibacterial properties but it’s incredibly irritating, as lemon juice has a pH of 2, which is very acidic and its use is linked with damage to your skin’s 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.
19Achillea millefoliumcauses skin irritation & photosensitivity, studies that say this is an anti-inflammatory were performed in vitro, there is little research showing this ingredient to have any benefit for skin
