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. Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride. Coconut derived emollient moisturizer, sometimes used as a thickener. Rich in fatty acids that replenish skin; has a silky, dry oil feel. Liquid oil at room temperature.
3. Hydroxyethyl Ethylcellulose ( ethylcellulose ) Binding agent; Emulsifier; Emulsion Stabilizer; Film-forming agent; Thickener; Viscosity Controlling
4. green tea – polyphenols ( Green Tea ) proven antioxidant, anti-inflammatory; can prevent collagen breakdown & reduce UV damage to skin. It is generally accepted that 5% green tea extract or polyphenols in the 90% range is an effective concentration in skincare products to produce these effects.
5. sugar cane extract ( Saccharum Officinarum,(Sugarcane) ) moisturizing agent; NOT the same thing as glycolic acid nor is it a substitute for it
6. propylene glycol ( Propanediol ) solvent; humectant; gives a product "slip"; helps "carry" other ingredients into the skin; also enhances the efficacy of preservatives; controls viscosity
7. bilberry extract ( Vaccinium Myrtillus ) antioxidant with no proven effect on skin (just internally); marketed as a natural alternative to hydroquinone but no research is available that proves this effect at all
8. Caprylyl Glycol. An alcohol, derived from a plant which is used as an emollient and coconut derived preservative.
9. fatty alcohols ( Cetearyl Alcohol,Ceteareth-20 ) coconut-derived emollient moisturizer, emulsifies & stabilizes emulsions; thickeners; carrying agents; slightly waxy texture
10. lemon extract ( Citrus Medica Limonium,(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.
11. preservatives ( Potassium Sorbate,Ethylhexylglycerin,Phenoxyethanol ) Used as a preservative or enhances the efficacy of preservatives
12. sugar maple ( Acer Saccharum,(Sugar Maple) ) moisturizing properties, not the same as glycolic or lactic acids nor does it exfoliate skin
13. Lactic Acid. the most moisturizing of AHAs; whitening astringent; exfoliant
14. methicone. Methicone is used in skincare and cosmetics as a/an antistatic, emollient moisturizing ingredient.
15. Allantoin. considered an effective anti-irritant; an occlusive that temporarily helps protect from chapped skin or windburn damage; softens skin & exfoliates; also a preservative
16. solvents ( Water,Aqua ) solvent
17. Glycerin ( Glycerol ) A humectant moisturizer; usually used as a base in (light) moisturizers
18. mandarin ( Citrus Aurantium Dulcis ) fragrant skin irritant; no topical benefits
