4sodium salicylatesalt of salicylic acid; anti-inflammatory agent; denaturant; preservative
5saw 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.

22boswellia 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.
