  1. Alcohol
    Uses in skincare - solvent Manmade rating for skincare - average EWG rating - 1-2 When alcohol ingredients are at the top of an ingredient list, they are problematic for all skin types; when they are near the bottom of an ingredient list, they aren’t present in a high enough concentration to be considered a problem for skin. Alcohol is often used to extract nutrients or essential oil from nature. It almost seems like a double edged sword as it can help nutrients like vitamin A and C penetrate the skin however it needs to be said that products with high levels of alcohol can over time damage the skin preventing it from being able to protect itself. Alcohol is best kept to a minimum.

  2. Aloe Vera leaf juice powder (aloe barbadensis leaf juice powder)
    Uses in skincare - Nourish, repair Manmade rating for skincare - Excellent Aloe Vera is a very popular ingredient in modern products, including soaps, cosmetics, shampoo, hair conditioner, sun tan lotions, as well as medicated creams and ointments. The vitamins found in Aloe include B complex, folic acid, C and carotene (a precursor of vitamin A). Aloe is also a brilliant moisturising agent and a quick look at the structure and chemistry of Aloe shows us why. It is the polysaccharides or sugars that predominate and these sugars are hygroscopic (water-loving) and paired with the fact that these sugars form a strong meshed structure they are both substantive and moisturising to the skin.

It is a monosaturated oil making it nourishing and suitable for dehydrated, sun exposed and dry skin.

It has been known to be effective in helping reduce the itchiness and discomfort associated with some skin conditions. Small amounts of Avocado oil are typically added to other carrier oils in order to enrich their vitamin content. It is used predominantly by manufacturers (particularly great in soaps, lotions and creams) and massage therapists.
