|Ingredient||What it does|
|1zinc oxide||UVA + UVB sunscreen; anti-irritant, thickener, coloring agent/pigment; bulking agent|
|2Vitamin 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)|
|3Sodium Benzotriazolyl Butylphenol Sulfonate||a solid, stable Amino sulfonic acid surfactant with excellent UV absorbing, emulsifying, antistatic, dispersing abilities.|
|4senna alata||proven anti-fungal, analgesic & antimicrobial properties. One in vitro study showed this extract to be an antioxidant anti-inflammatory|
|6polysilicone-11||film forming silicone polymer|
|7Glycerin||A humectant moisturizer; usually used as a base in (light) moisturizers|
|8fragrance||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.|
|9Cyclopentasiloxane||Silicone; makes stuff easily spreadable; used as a conditioner, delivery agent, lubricant & solvent. Helps deliver other, heavier, silicones also in a product (like dimethicone)|
|10Copernicia Cerifera||an emollient thickening agent; also a film-former; has absorbent properties too|
|11butylene 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(lemon)||Lemon extract in skincare is a known skin sensitizer and irritant. It can have antibacterial properties but its incredibly irritating, as lemon juice has a pH of 2, which is very acidic and its use is linked with damage to your skins 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.|
