Just Ingredients

Every ingredient matters, because at the end of the day your body absorbs all of it (literally). It’s important that every ingredient is clean.

We want to preface this with a little learning tidbit.

The reason why cosmetic ingredients can be hard to read is because they’re listed in International Nomenclature of Cosmetic Ingredients (INCI), which is a mixture of conventional scientific names, Latin and English words. Words can literally be from a different language. 

This is why we’ve also translated our ingredients below to English for you, along with their benefit. Enjoy.

Water

Every lotion needs 70% water; its hydrating, and allows the product to be smoothly applied to our skin. After all, we’re water too.

Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice (Aloe Vera Gel)

Aloe is rich in antioxidants, and one antioxidant protein, in particular, called metallothionein, has been found to have a protective effect on skin that's been exposed to and damaged by UV rays. The plant is also incredibly hydrating, which could help combat the skin peeling that usually takes effect post-sunburn. 

Emulsifying Wax NF

Every lotion has an emulsifier to create oil-in-water emulsions/bonds; emulsifying Wax NF is a vegetable-derived, non-ionic which means its mild on your skin.

Caprylic/capric Triglyceride (Coconut Oil)

Coconut oil is a non-fragrant plant oil that's rich in fatty acids, like linoleic acid and lauric acid, has antibacterial properties, and works as an moisturizer to soften the skin.

Calendula Officinalis Extract

Calendula butter has antifungal, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial properties that might make it useful in healing wounds, soothing eczema, and relieving diaper rash. It's also used as an antiseptic.

Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil

Jojoba butter has a variety of healing properties that may make it effective in treating skin conditions like acne, eczema, and psoriasis. You can enjoy its benefits by using it as a cleanser, moisturizer, or spot treatment.

Vitis Vinifera (Grapeseed) Oil

Grapeseed oil helps the vitamin E and vitamin C in your skin to be more efficient and effective at preserving your skin.

Glycerin

Humectant i.e. it attracts water so it helps keep you moisturized.

Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter

Shea butter is often used in moisturizers, creams, lotions, and other emulsions for the skin and hair. It is rich in fats that make it an excellent emollient and skin moisturizing agent. Experiments also showed it has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.

Glyceryl Stearte SE

Our second emulsifier as there will normally be at least two working together in lotion.

Tocopherol (Vitamin E Oil)

While vitamin E's main role in creams and lotions is as an antioxidant, it could help soften skin as well.

Polysorbate 80

Our third emulsifier; having three is certainly not unusual, as it is helping with stability.

Allantoin

Allantoin is used as a moisturizer to treat or prevent dry, rough, scaly, itchy skin and minor skin irritations (e.g., diaper rash, skin burns from radiation therapy).

Potassium Cordite

Clean preservative, needed in combination with Sodium Benzoate.
