Glycerin is a sugar alcohol obtained from natural sources that helps the skin retain water to improve hydration, which is essential for healthy looking skin.
Panthenol is a derivative of vitamin B which improves skin hydration, reduces water loss, and retains skin softness and elasticity.
Dimethicone acts as a lubricant on the skin surface, which gives the skin a soft and smooth appearance. It helps provide an even application and leaves a non-sticky, silky feel after application.
Mineral Oil is a skin conditioning agent that slows the loss of water from the skin's surface and increases the skin’s hydration (water content).

Polyethylene Glycol (PEG) Distearates are produced from stearic acid, a naturally occurring fatty acid. They help to keep a cream or lotion formulation stable.
Ceramides are essential lipids naturally found within the skin, which play a key role in enhancing and restoring the skin’s protective function.
Ceteareth-6 and Stearyl alcohol are waxy alcohols added to help form and thicken a cream.
Cetyl alcohol is an emulsifying wax made by combining fatty alcohols derived from vegetable sources added to help thicken a cream.
Humectants are ingredients intended to increase water content in the top layers of the skin.
Emollients remain on the skin surface and act as lubricants. They also improve ease of application and appearance of the cream or lotion.
Lipids comprise a wide range of ingredients found in nature. When Lipids are used as cosmetic ingredients, they slow the evaporation of water from the skin surface. This results in increased water content for healthier looking skin.
