Glycerin: Also called glycerol; it is present in all natural lipids (fats), whether animal or vegetable. It can be manufactured by the hydrolysis of fats and by the fermentation of sugars. It can also be synthetically manufactured. For some time it was thought that too much glycerin in a moisturizer could pull water out of the skin instead of drawing it into the skin. That theory now seems to be completely unfounded. What appears to be true is that glycerin shores up the skin's natural protection by filling in the area known as the intercellular matrix and by attracting just the right amount of water to maintain the skin's homeostasis. There is also research indicating that the presence of glycerin in the intercellular layer helps other skin lipids do their jobs better.
Olea Europaea (Olive) Leaf Extract: Remarkable increase in skin hydration and in skin elasticity.
Butylene Glycol: Among other glycols and glycerols, this is a humectant or humidifying and delivery ingredient used in cosmetics.
1,2 Hexanediol: 1,2 Hexanediol and Caprylyl Glycol, are one of the most, if not the most, effective humectant* available today.
Caprylyl Glycol: Humectant
Aminomethyl Propanol: Used in cosmetics at levels of 1% or below to adjust pH.
Disodium EDTA: Abbreviation for ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid. It is a stabilizer used in cosmetics to prevent ingredients in a given formula from binding with trace elements (particularly minerals) that can exist in water and other ingredients to cause unwanted product changes such as texture, odor, and consistency problems. The technical term for this function is a chelating agent.
