We don't have a description for Sodium Glutamate.

Malic Acid is an AHA derived from unripe fruit. In Latin, "Malum" means apple.

Malic Acid has both AHA and BHA properties, but is considered an AHA because its AHA properties are stronger. Like other AHAs, it removes the top layer of old and dead skin to reveal the newer layer underneath. It also helps with improving fine lines, wrinkles, skin tone, skin texture, and acne blemishes.

Due to its exfoliating properties, you should wear SPF when using Malic Acid.

Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride is an emollient, solvent, and texture enhancer. It is considered a skin-softener by helping the skin prevent moisture loss.

Within a product, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride can thicken the product and make spreadability easier by dissolving clumping compounds. An added benefit of Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride is its antioxidant properties.

Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride is made by combining glycerin with coconut oil, forming a clear liquid. Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride has not been found to be toxic for human use in concentrations under 50%.

While there is an assumption Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride can clog pores due to it being derived from coconut oil, there is no research supporting this.

Water is the most common cosmetic ingredient of all. It often makes up the largest portion of a product, and is thus typically found at (or near) the top of an ingredients list.

In most cases, the purpose of water within an ingredient list is to act as a solvent - this means it's there to help dissolve other ingredients into the formulation.

Water also happens to be necessary for all life on Earth. If you see this, drink a glass of water. Stay hydrated!

Butylene Glycol (or BG) is used within cosmetic products for a few different reasons:

  • It is a solvent, meaning that it helps to dissolve other ingredients. This also enhances the absorption of the product into one's skin.
  • It is a humectant, which means that it helps attract moisture into the skin.
  • It helps improve product application.

Overall, Butylene Glycol is a safe and well-rounded ingredient. It is unlikely to irritate skin, and works well with pretty much all other ingredients.
