Beta-glucans improve the skin barrier and promote hydration by decreasing transepidermal water loss.
Allantoin - An FDA approved skin protectant that improves moisture retention, provides a smoothening effect to the skin, and promotes epidermal cell renewal. Allantoin can increase the water in the intercellular matrix, in turn moisturizing the skin.
Xanthan Gum - A natural gum produced from sugar fermentation that works as a thickening/stabilizing agent in the product and helps to emulsify (bind) the oil and water. Xanthan gum produces a gel like slip and feel that is pleasant on the skin.
Propylene Glycol - A light weight plant derived humectant that provides hydration to the skin and enhances skin feel & texture.
Diazolidinyl Urea, Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate - A reliable, highly effective broad spectrum preservative system. Provides antimicrobial power to the product. (Both ingredients used at less that %0.3)
Sodium Benzoate - A salt of Benzoic Acid that is found naturally in many fruits & foods that works to preserve the product. Sodium Benzoate fights against yeast, bacteria, and mold, keeping the product safe and effective.
Potassium Sorbate - The potassium salt of sorbic acid (a natural fatty acid) that works to preserve skincare products. Potassium Sorbate fights against yeast, bacteria, and mold, keeping the product safe and effective.
Citric Acid - Citric Acid is used to adjust the pH of the product, keeping it from becoming too alkaline. Our Citric Acid is derived from corn.
