Ingredient Analysis
1. potassium Hydroxide. AKA 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.
2. Artemisia Vulgaris Extract. Artemisia Vulgaris Extract is used in skincare and cosmetics as a/an moisturizing ingredient.
3. Hydrogenated polyisobutene. emollient; viscosity increasing agent
4. PEG-7 Glyceryl Cocoate. Cleansing surfactant; Solubilizer; makes the product smooth and foamy
5. arnica montana extract ( Arnica Montana ) known skin sensitizer & irritant
6. Cocamidopropyl Betaine. Cocamidopropyl Betaine is used in skincare and cosmetics as a/an antistatic, cleansing, foam boosting, hair moisturizing, cleansing surfactant, viscosity controlling ingredient.
7. glyceryl stearate SE ( Glyceryl Stearate ) self-emulsifying emollient & thickening agent, the higher up an ingredient list it is, the thicker the formula
8. Sodium Bicarbonate. baking soda; used as a buffering agent and as a feature ingredient in certain Korean cleansers and exfoliants
9. Glycol Distearate. Glycol Distearate is used in skincare and cosmetics as a/an emollient moisturizing, emulsifying, opacifying aka makes the formula less clear, moisturizing, viscosity controlling ingredient.
10. 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
11. yarrow extract ( Achillea Millefolium ) May cause 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
12. preservatives ( Methylparabe ) Used as a preservative or enhances the efficacy of preservatives
13. Disodium EDTA. preservative & product stabilizer; helps the topical penetration of active ingredients; chelating agent
14. lemon extract ( Citrus Medica Limonum ) 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.
15. Myristic Acid. detergent cleansing agent; makes a product foamy. Can be drying.
16. Polyethylene. emollient; scrub agent; film former; stabilizer; binding agent; thickener
17. gentian root ( Gentiana Lutea Root extract ) anti-inflammatory and antibacterial
18. Stearic Acid. emulsifier; 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.
19. Lauric Acid. in 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.
20. Fragrance. Fragrance 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.
21. solvents ( Water ) solvent
22. Glycerin. A humectant moisturizer; usually used as a base in (light) moisturizers
23. 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
