Ingredients explained

Water
Est. %65
Function

Coco-Caprylate/Caprate
Est. %3
Function
Origin
A naturally-derived emollient ester. It is a blend of caprylates and caprates and, relative to other emollients, is lightweight and dry on the skin. As a result, coco-caprylate/caprate serves as a natural alternative to volatile silicones.
