1. ethylbisiminomethylguaiacol manganese chloride. In in vitro studies, it was proven to help reduce erythma and limit UV damage to skin.
2. cleansing/lathering OR emulsifying agents ( sodium stearoyl glutamate ) depending on the product, this ingredient cleanses; emulsifies; lathers; makes products foamy/creamy & spread better
3. butyl methoxydibenzoylmethane. Butyl Methoxydibenzoylmethane is used in skincare and cosmetics as a/an UV absorber, UV filtering ingredient.
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. ethylhexyl methoxycinnamate. Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate is used in skincare and cosmetics as a/an UV absorber, UV filtering ingredient.
6. glyceryl stearate se. self-emulsifying emollient & thickening agent, the higher up an ingredient list it is, the thicker the formula
7. echium plantagineum. an oil rich in fatty acids that moisturizes and may help produce collagen
8. c13-14 isoparaffin. emollient; solvent
9. cyclopentasiloxane. Silicone; makes stuff easily spreadable; used as a conditioner, delivery agent, lubricant & solvent. Helps deliver other, heavier, silicones also in a product (like dimethicone)
10. opacifying agent ( polymethylsilsequioxane ) makes the product more opaque
11. 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
12. hyaluronic acid ( sodium hyaluronate ) A humectant moisturizer; proven to boost skin's moisture content, reduce inflammation, have cell-communicating abilitites & help prevent moisture loss
13. polysilicone-11 ( polysilicone 11 ) film forming silicone polymer
14. tapioca starch. Often seen in lotions and in powder products as well as in emulsion systems. It's added so the lotion has a less greasy feel on the skin.
15. polyacrylamide. Polyacrylamide is used in skincare and cosmetics as a/an antistatic, formula binding, film forming ingredient.
16. disodium edta. preservative & product stabilizer; helps the topical penetration of active ingredients; chelating agent
17. sunflower oil ( helianthus annuus ) Occlusive, emollient skin-friendly oil; can improve skin healing, due to linoleic acid, an omega-6 fatty acid. Moisturizing, especially for dry skin & reduces inflammation & repairs skin's barrier. Combined with PEG- esters it's an emulsifier.
18. balloon plant ( cardiospermum halicacabum ) a plant with a cortisone-like action as a valid alternative to traditional dermatological applications; has potential to help dermatitis
19. benzophenone. UV sunscreen & frangrance masking agent. Helps prevent deterioration of fragrance/color that might be affected by UV rays found in daylight. May produce hives & contact sensitivity. In sunscreens they may cause immediate hives as well as other photoallergic reactions. Also may cause face & neck rashes when in shampoo.
20. preservatives ( phenoxyethanol ) Used as a preservative or enhances the efficacy of preservatives
21. cocoa butter ( theobroma cacao (cocoa) seed butter ) emollient plant oil; proven to help improve skin elasticity & promote healthy collagen production in ex vivo study. Was not proven to help or prevent stretch marks in one study.
22. 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.
23. octocrylene. Octocrylene is used in skincare and cosmetics as a/an UV absorber, UV filtering ingredient.
24. jojoba oil ( jojoba ) moisturizing skin-friendly oil (actually a wax) that limits oil production in skin; stimulates collagen; enhances skin's barrier repair properties & ability to heal from damage
25. vitamin e. 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)
26. methicone. Methicone is used in skincare and cosmetics as a/an antistatic, emollient moisturizing ingredient.
