Ole Henriksen invigorating night creme

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. cleansing/lathering OR emulsifying agents ( Hexylene Glycol ) depending on the product, this ingredient cleanses; emulsifies; lathers; makes products foamy/creamy & spread better
3. Magnesium Aluminium Silicate ( Magnesium Aluminum Silicate ) a natural mica used as an alternative to talc, as a binding agent; gives a smooth feel
4. 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.
5. Triisostearyl Citrate. Triisostearyl Citrate is used in skincare and cosmetics as a/an emollient moisturizing ingredient.
6. glyceryl stearate SE ( Glyceryl Stearate ) self-emulsifying emollient & thickening agent, the higher up an ingredient list it is, the thicker the formula
7. Ethylhexyl Palmitate. emollient; solvent; fragrance
8. Myristyl Myristate. Emollient; Opacifying agent; Skin conditioning
9. Ascorbyl Palmitate. A moisturizing vitamin C ester, fat/lipid soluble, antioxidant and preservative
10. sugar cane extract ( Saccharum Officinarum,(Sugar Cane) ) moisturizing agent; NOT the same thing as glycolic acid nor is it a substitute for it
11. bilberry extract ( Bilberry Fruit/Leaf Extract ) 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
12. PEG-100 Stearate. a moisturizing emollient & emulsifier
13. evening primrose ( Oenothera Biennis ) very rich & delicate skin-friendly moisturizing oil; anti-inflammatory & great for eczema & psoriasis
14. Caprylyl Glycol. An alcohol, derived from a plant which is used as an emollient and coconut derived preservative.
15. fatty alcohols ( Cetyl Alcohol,Stearyl Alcohol ) coconut-derived emollient moisturizer, emulsifies & stabilizes emulsions; thickeners; carrying agents; slightly waxy texture
16. lemon extract ( Citrus Medica Limonum,(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.
17. Glycolic Acid. Proven to reduce fine lines & wrinkles; hyperpigmentation; smooths, exfoliates & thickens skin; increases skin hydration & elasticity; good melasma treatment
18. preservatives ( Ethylhexylglycerin,Phenoxyethanol ) Used as a preservative or enhances the efficacy of preservatives
19. 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.
20. sugar maple ( Acer Saccharum,(Sugar Maple) ) moisturizing properties, not the same as glycolic or lactic acids nor does it exfoliate skin
21. Lactic Acid. the most moisturizing of AHAs; whitening astringent; exfoliant
22. Vitamin E ( Tocopherol ) Antioxidant emollient & occlusive moisturizer with proven effects: protects the epidermis from early stages of ultraviolet light damage; increases the efficacy of active sunscreen ingredients; reduces the formation of free radicals upon skin exposure to UVA rays and other sources of skin stress; reduces transepidermal water loss from skin and strengthens the skin's barrier function; protects the skin barrier's oil (lipid) balance during the cleansing process; reduces the severity of sunburn; preservative (if at the end of the list)
23. thickener ( Xanthan Gum ) thickens/stabilizes the product; generally, the more thickening agents used in formulating a cream, for example, may enhance its stability, but can also cause difficulty in spreading.
24. Squalane. light emollient veg oil, can be antibacterial & moisturizing; might break out some people
25. silicone ( Cyclohexasiloxane ) gives skin a nice "slip", film-formers; can "carry" other active ingredients; may clog pores for some (depending on the silicones properties); some are water-soluble, some not; anti-foaming; skin protectant
26. Fragrance ( Parfum ) 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.
27. solvents ( Water,Aqua ) solvent
28. Glycerin. A humectant moisturizer; usually used as a base in (light) moisturizers
29. mandarin ( Citrus Aurantium Dulcis ) fragrant skin irritant; no topical benefits
30. retinol ( Retinyl Palmitate ) Proven antioxidant anti-wrinkle treatment; induces collagen synthesis, increases skin elasticity, smoother skin & skin lightening effects; treats hyperpigmentation
