The Skin House Vital Light Whitening Spot Ingredients Explained
This product contains 50 ingredients. Click on any ingredient to learn more about it
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!
An organic, colorless, odorless, and non-toxic compound that has antimicrobial and antiviral properties. It acts a humectant in skincare products, meaning it helps skin retain moisture by pulling moisture from the air.
Squalane is an emollient that helps the skin retain moisture. It's an oily liquid that occurs naturally in certain types of fish and plant oils.
Squalane also happens to be naturally occurring within the sebum of our skin - it's part of the natural oils our skin produces to keep itself hydrated.
Squalane is known to be non-irritating (even at 100% concentration).
It's a fantastic ingredient that hydrates the skin superbly and is suitable for those with sensitive skin.
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.
Hyaluronic Acid is a humectant, meaning it has the ability to hold water and rehydrate skin. Because of this, it is great for soothing and adding moisture to dry skin.
It is naturally occurring in our bodies and is mostly found in eye fluid and joints; it is commonly derived from sodium salt of hyaluronic acid.
We don't have a description for Cetyl Ethylhexanoate.
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.
Cetearyl alcohol is a mixture of cetyl alcohol and stearyl alcohol. Its main purpose is to prevent oil and liquids from separating in products. Cetearyl alcohol can also help thicken a product or create foam.
Cetearyl alcohol has been found to have emollient properties, meaning it helps hydrate the skin by trapping moisture.
We don't have a description for Dimethicone/Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer.
Betaine is a common humectant (a substance that promotes retention of moisture). It's known to be gentle on the skin and can help balance hydration.
Betaine is created naturally by the skin and body, and the form found within cosmetic products can be either plant-dervied or synthetic.
We don't have a description for Methyl Gluceth-20.
We don't have a description for Sorbitan Isostearate.
We don't have a description for Carbomer.
We don't have a description for Sodium Polyacrylate.
We don't have a description for Laureth-7.
Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract is an extract of the leaves of the aloe, Aloe barbadensis, Liliaceae.
Aloe contains the antioxidants Vitamins A, C, and E. These vitamins neutralize free radicals.
It also contains sugars in the form of monosaccharides and polysaccharides, folic acid, choline, many common minerals such as calcium, 12 anthraquinones, fatty acids, amino acids, and Vitamin B12.
Aloe is known to be anti-inflammatory, moisturizing, antiseptic, healing, and protect against UV rays.

We don't have a description for Hydrogenated Lecithin.
Ceramide 3 is a form of ceramide.
Ceramides are intercellular lipids naturally found in our skin that bonds dead skin cells together to create a barrier. They are known for their ability to hold water and thus are a great ingredient for dry skin.
Ceramide 3 (Retired) is the N-acylated phytosphingosine having the erythro structure that conforms generally to the formula, where m has a value ranging from 12 to 28 in which the acyl moiety may be saturated, mono-unsaturated, or di-unsaturated and n has a value ranging from 10 to 20. The INCI Name, Ceramide 3, originally developed in 1997, was designated with a retired status in 2014. For an interim period of time, trade name assignments formerly published with the INCI Name Ceramide 3 will be retained in the retired monograph, and also published with the new name assignment, Ceramide NP.
We don't have a description for Tea-Cocoyl Glutamate.
We don't have a description for Triethanolamine.
We don't have a description for Myrciaria Dubia Fruit Extract.
Panthenol (also referred to as pro-vitamin B5) is a common ingredient that helps hydrate and soothe the skin.
Panthenol is a humectant, meaning that it helps the skin attract and retain moisture. It's also known to have anti-inflammatory abilities. This means that it's great for sensitive, irritation-prone skin.
Allantoin plays a role in soothing and moisturizing the skin. Because of this, it is often added to products with strong active ingredients.
Some studies have shown this ingredient can promote wound healing with higher concentrations.
Allantoin is derived from the comfrey plant but produced synthetically for cosmetic products to ensure purity.
We don't have a description for Adenosine.
Disodium EDTA plays a role in making products more stable by aiding other preservatives. It is a chelating agent, meaning it neutralizes metal ions that may be found in a product.
Disodium EDTA is a salt of ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid and are found to be safe in cosmetic ingredients.
We don't have a description for Panax Ginseng Root Extract.
We don't have a description for Bambusa Vulgaris Leaf/Stem Extract.

Phenoxyethanol has germicide, antimicrobial, and aromatic properties. In studies, Phenoxyethanol has been found to prevent germ and microbial growth. By itself, it has a scent similar to roses.
Phenoxyethanol is commonly used with Caprylyl Glycol to preserve the shelf life of products.
Ethylhexylglycerin (we can't pronounce this either) is commonly used as a preservative and skin softener. It is derived from glyceryl.
You might see Ethylhexylglycerin often paired with other preservatives such as phenoxyethanol. Ethylhexylglycerin has been found to increase the effectiveness of these other preservatives.
