Ingredients explained

Butyloctyl Salicylate
Est. %10
Function
Origin
A synthetic emollient and solvent. It is primarily used as a carrier oil to disperse minerals in, including pigments and sunscreen minerals. It can also absorb UV light, thus boosting the SPF of sunscreen products.
Caprylyl Methicone
Est. %10
Function
Origin
A liquid silicone with occlusive moisturizing properties. Being compatible with natural oils is a challenge for most silicones, but caprylyl methicone plays well with all types of oils.

Octisalate
Est. %5
Function
Origin
A UVB sunscreen also known as ethylhexyl salicylate. It is normally paired with UVA sunscreens to provide broad-spectrum protection. Octisalate also protects other ingredients, like colorants and antioxidants, from deterioration due to exposure to UV light.
Diisopropyl Adipate
Est. %5
Function
Origin
A synthetic oil-like ingredient with a light feel and softening effect not just on skin, but for products as a whole.
Avobenzone
Est. %3
Function
Origin
A popular sunscreen that protects against UVA rays, which cause premature aging and skin cancer. Avobenzone degrades after about 30 minutes of sun exposure and becomes ineffective. It is therefore often paired with UV-filter stabilizers such as octocrylene.
Trisodium Ethylenediamine Disuccinate
Est. %2.8
Function
Origin
A chelating agent that disables harmful heavy metal ions present in skincare.
Acrylates/Octylacrylamide Copolymer

EDTA
Est. %2.8
Function
Origin
A synthetically produced ingredient that binds certain metal ions. It can help prevent product discoloration or poor performance in rinse-off products used in 'hard' water.
Octocrylene
Est. %2.8
Function
Origin
A synthetic compound that protects skin against harmful ultraviolet light.
Phytic Acid
Est. %2.8
Function
Origin
Phytic acid is found in rice and is seen as a cousin of alpha-hydroxy acids. As a chelator, it can bind to certain metals that may cause discoloration in products or reduce the efficacy of other ingredients.
Phyllanthus Emblica Fruit Extract
Est. %2.8
Function
Origin
An extract from the fruits of the Indian gooseberry, also called Amla, which is rich in acids, vitamin C, astringent tannins, and humectant moisturizing sugars.
Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate
Est. %2.8
Function
Origin
A lipid-soluble form of vitamin C that is more stable and less irritating than ascorbic acid. According to a recent clinical study, THDA has all the capabilities of regular vitamin C, including anti-wrinkle and anti-pigment activity.
