Aqua and Glycerin: The Dynamic Duo for Deep Hydration
Aqua and Glycerin are two popular and effective moisturizing ingredients commonly found in skincare and body care products.

Isopropyl palmitate is a type of palmitate, fatty acid derived from palm oil, that softens and smoothens the skin.

Pentylene Glycol and Caprylyl Glycol: The Skin-Friendly Preservatives
Pentylene Glycol and Caprylyl Glycol are two ingredients that are popular in the skincare industry, due to their ability to act as effective and skin-friendly preservatives. Pentylene Glycol is a synthetic humectant that you can find in your cosmetics and beauty products commonly. It is both water and oil-soluble and has moisture-binding and antimicrobial properties. It’s also called hydrophilic, which means it binds well to water. This property helps pentylene glycol to emulsify and thicken the products, but it also helps to moisturize the skin and glow the skin. With these properties, it can also attract and retain water on the skin’s surface, leading to hydrated and glowing skin. Additionally, it can improve the texture of skincare formulas and has very mild preservative properties when used in amounts.
Caprylyl Glycol, on the other hand, is a humectant and skin conditioning agent to improve the texture of product formulation, as well as to help keep the final products fresh and free of bacteria. With its moisturizing properties, it helps to hydrate the skin and improve skin appearance. Additionally, it contains antimicrobial properties, to prevent the growth of bacteria and other microorganisms, which cause skin irritation or infection.
One of the main benefits of using Pentylene Glycol and Caprylyl Glycol as preservatives in the products is that they are safe and gentle on the skin. Unlike some other synthetic preservatives that can be harsh and trigger skin irritation, Pentylene Glycol and Caprylyl Glycol are non-toxic, non-irritating, and non-sensitizing. This makes these ingredients an ideal choice for people with sensitive skin or prone to allergic reactions.
Lecithin and Propylene Glycol: Two Multi-Tasking Ingredients You Need to Know
If you are looking for multi-functional ingredients to add to your skincare routine, look no further than lecithin and propylene glycol. Lecithin is a type of fat, found in a variety of foods, but is also commonly used in cosmetics and personal care products. It acts as an emollient, which helps to soften and soothe the skin, while also serving as an emulsifier and penetration enhancer for active ingredients. You can find lecithin in a variety of foods, including organ meats, red meat, seafood, eggs, peanuts, wheat germ, canola oil, sunflower oil, green vegetables, and legumes.
Propylene glycol is a versatile ingredient that can be used in different industries, including food additives, cosmetics, and skincare. As a humectant, it maintains the product's moisture levels. Additionally, it is often used in combination with other ingredients as a preservative in cosmetic and skincare products.
When used in combination, lecithin, and propylene glycol helps to improve the effectiveness of Skin Elixir Serum Lotion, by enhancing the delivery of active ingredients and improving their absorption.
Saccharide Isomerate and Sodium Acrylates Copolymer: The Science Behind Skin Barrier Protection
Maintaining a healthy and strong skin barrier is essential for achieving and maintaining healthy skin. Two ingredients, Saccharide Isomerate, and Sodium Acrylates Copolymer are effective components in Skin Elixir Serum Lotion, which helps to strengthen and protect the skin barrier.
Saccharide Isomerate is a plant-derived carbohydrate complex, that acts as a humectant, an emollient, and a skin replenisher. It helps maintain the skin’s natural moisture barrier, providing instant and deep hydration which can last up to 72 hours. This is crucial for skin health as proper hydration levels are necessary for strengthening the skin's defense mechanism against environmental aggressors. Saccharide Isomerate also is an effective moisturizer containing natural carbohydrates found in the stratum corneum, binding to the free amino groups of lysine present in keratin. As a result, it helps to smooth and plump the skin.
Sodium Acrylates Copolymer is a sodium salt of a polymer consisting of acrylic acid, methacrylic acid, or one of their simple esters. It is used in cosmetics and personal care products as an absorbent, adhesive, artificial nail builder, and texture enhancer. It also functions as a binder and film-forming agent and is especially adapted for the formulation of gel creams. Sodium Acrylates Copolymer helps to keep water and oil components evenly dispersed in emulsions, providing a cool, soft, and non-greasy skin feel. Together, Saccharide Isomerate and Sodium Acrylates Copolymer work to strengthen and protect the skin's natural barrier, providing deep hydration and nourishment. Incorporating these ingredients into your skincare routine can help to achieve healthy and radiant skin.
