3. 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)
4. buffering agent ( sodium hydroxide ) a buffering agent (stabilizes pH)
5. fatty alcohols ( cetearyl alcohol ) coconut-derived emollient moisturizer, emulsifies & stabilizes emulsions; thickeners; carrying agents; slightly waxy texture
6. polyacrylamide. Polyacrylamide is used in skincare and cosmetics as a/an antistatic, formula binding, film forming ingredient.
7. chlorphenesin. Chlorphenesin is used in skincare and cosmetics as a/an antimicrobial, preservative ingredient.
8. preservatives ( phenoxyethanol ) Used as a preservative or enhances the efficacy of preservatives
9. dimethiconol. Dimethiconol is used in skincare and cosmetics as a/an anti-foaming, emollient moisturizing, MOISTURISING ingredient.
10. Octocrylene. Octocrylene is used in skincare and cosmetics as a/an UV absorber, UV filtering ingredient.
11. sugar maple ( acer saccharum ) moisturizing properties, not the same as glycolic or lactic acids nor does it exfoliate skin
12. mineral oil ( paraffin ) An oil with occlusive properties (baby oil), paraffin, by itself, is a waxy petroleum-based thickener
13. lactic acid. the most moisturizing of AHAs; whitening astringent; exfoliant
14. Homosalate. sunscreen that provides UVB protection but its UVA range is very narrow so it's combined with other sunscreens

16. 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)
17. methicone. Methicone is used in skincare and cosmetics as a/an antistatic, emollient moisturizing ingredient.
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. solvents ( Aqua,Water ) solvent
20. laureth-. surfactant: the higher the number, the more viscosity of the ingredient increases until it becomes a white waxy solid. Some research shows that the lower the value, the higher the risk of irritation.
