Ole Henriksen lemon strip flash peel

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 ( Oleth ) depending on the product, this ingredient cleanses; emulsifies; lathers; makes products foamy/creamy & spread better
3. Vaccinium Myrtillus Fruit Extract. Vaccinium Myrtillus Fruit Extract is used in skincare and cosmetics as a/an moisturizing ingredient.
4. Biosaccharide Gum-1. Biosaccharide Gum-1 is used in skincare and cosmetics as a/an moisturizing ingredient.
5. sugar cane extract ( Saccharum Officinarum ) moisturizing agent; NOT the same thing as glycolic acid nor is it a substitute for it
6. licorice extract ( Glycyrrhiza ) anti-inflammatory; anti-allergic; the root has been proven to treat hyperpigmentation so its used in whitening products
7. Caprylyl Glycol. An alcohol, derived from a plant which is used as an emollient and coconut derived preservative.
8. Glycolic Acid. Proven to reduce fine lines & wrinkles; hyperpigmentation; smooths, exfoliates & thickens skin; increases skin hydration & elasticity; good melasma treatment
9. preservatives ( Phenoxyethanol ) Used as a preservative or enhances the efficacy of preservatives
10. lemon extract ( Citrus Medica Limonum ) 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. Carrageenan. Carrageenan is used in skincare and cosmetics as a/an ingredient.
12. Lactic Acid. the most moisturizing of AHAs; whitening astringent; exfoliant
13. sugar maple ( Acer Saccharum ) moisturizing properties, not the same as glycolic or lactic acids nor does it exfoliate skin
14. Citric Acid. mainly used as a cleaning agent & preservative; pH adjuster; in higher concentration it's an AHA (in peels & antiaging products)
15. Vitamin E ( Tocopheryl ) 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)
16. fragrance ( Limonene ) 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.
17. solvents ( Water ) solvent
18. 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.
19. Glycerin. A humectant moisturizer; usually used as a base in (light) moisturizers
20. mandarin ( Citrus Aurantium Dulcis ) fragrant skin irritant; no topical benefits
