Dicaprylyl Carbonate – fractionated Coconut oil is a fast spreading emollient derived from coconut. Used in cleansing
products to effectively remove oily make-up and impurities from the surface of the skin, it leaves the skin feeling soft
and velvety without leaving a residue.
C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate is a thickening agent and an emollient that increases spreadability providing light conditioning for
the skin with a silky- soft after-feel.
Cocoglyceride is an emollient and is a fraction of fatty acid esters derived from coconut oil, it can also be used in

Cyclomethicone is a humectant (helps to retain water) it can easily spread across the skin to deliver active healing
ingredients to all targeted areas equally without entering the pores or sticking to skin cells. It helps leave skin feeling

Lauryl Glucoside is a very gentle surfactant that is 100% plant derived with good dermatological compatibility and
viscosity enhancing effects. Made from Coconut oil (Lauryl) and sugar (Glucose) is used to properly disperse the
ingredients, and ensure easy rinsing and removal of dirt. The term surfactant comes from the words surface active

Glycerin is available naturally in vegetable oils.
• Absorbs moisture from the air to keep the skin well-toned, moisturised and hydrated
• It is a humectant (helps to retain water) and extremely hygroscopic, meaning it readily absorbs water from
other sources. In part, Glycerin works because of its ability to attract water from the environment and from the
lower layers of the skin (dermis) increasing the amount of water in the surface layers of the skin to keep skin
well-toned, moisturised and hydrated.
• Strengthens skin barrier – It increases the thickness of the epidermal layer and improves barrier function. This
means that the harmful chemicals stay out of the skin and moisture stays in.

tap water, which in turn prevents the metals from being deposited onto the skin, hair and scalp. Disodium EDTA is a
preservative booster that reduces the amount of preservatives necessary to maintain the microbiological integrity of
