Ingredients explained

Water
Est. %70
Function

A synthetically produced emulsifier. In skincare it provides a conditioned feeling, leaving skin soft.
Petrolatum
Est. %4

Also known as Vaseline, this is the most powerful occlusive moisturizer and at least twice as effective as other occlusives. This is why we multiply the petrolatum score by 2 when calculating the Occlusivity of the product. Petrolatum is not comedogenic.
Isopropyl Palmitate
Est. %3

Dimethicone
Est. %1.2

You’re definitely familiar with sodium chloride, even if you don’t think you are. It’s table salt! Salt works well with some cleansing ingredients (surfactants) to thicken them into gels. It also acts as a stabilizer for water-in-oil emulsions.
