3stearic 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.

6saw palmettomay 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.
7Phyllanthus Emblica Fruit Extracthumectant moisturizer
8fragranceFragrance 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.
9caffeineconstricts the skin; may be anti-inflammatory but also irritating; a potential antioxidant (there is no independent research that caffeine helps cellulite); aids ingredients to penetrate the skin
10boswellia serratagum resin of the Indian Frankincense tree; has research showing it has an anti-inflammatory effect on skin and can stimulate fibroblasts (cells that make collagen). However, it can also be a skin sensitizer and cause contact dermatitis. It's used in the manufacture of L'Oreal products as the anti-wrinkle agent "Boswelox", which has been criticized as being ineffective.
11betainea humectant moisturizer; can enhance the texture and height of foam
12(tamanu)skin conditioning emollient oil; antioxidant wound-healing properties. Said to be antibacterial & anti-inflammatory.
