C- What are the main ingredients of cosmetics?


  • Water: Water acts to dissolve and dilute the rest of the thickening ingredients, which is why it is very common in all cosmetics, that is, in creams, shampoos, conditioners...


  • Emulsifiers: It is a binding ingredient, for example, water and oil, as we know, are incompatible and cannot unite, since emulsifiers achieve this effect by changing the surface texture of water and oil so that it remains a homogeneous and uniform whole. .


  • Preservatives: Preservatives, as in food, are used to extend the life of the product and prevent fungi from growing due to humidity or other due to climate change or the passage of time. Let's remember that most microorganisms live in water and cosmetics are made mainly from this element, so if we didn't put preservatives on them, they wouldn't last long.


  • Thickeners: Thickeners serve to make the appearance of cosmetics denser and less liquid. They usually come from nature and are ingredients that absorb water


  • Emollients: Some of the emollients whose function is to soften, are beeswax and olive and coconut oils as the best known.


  • Pigments: It is nothing other than the famous colors and the whole range of them that we find when we want to put on makeup, they can be given with organic or inorganic products. For example, carmine is one of the most famous pigments that is secreted by the cochineal and whose production supposes the death of millions of them.


  • Gloss: Star product for lipsticks in women, these are created through a substance called bismuth oxychloride


  • Sodium Chloride: This is also used to bind incompatible ingredients. They are used in shampoos, cleansers, and some soaps. Common salt is used to bind incompatible ingredients. It is widely used in shampoos, soaps, and facial cleansers.


  • Plastic: Oddly enough, it is also used in cosmetics, especially in lacquers or gels and hair wax.


  • Fragrances: Fragrances are not only used in perfumes but also in cosmetics, it seems silly to think that it is important that a cream can smell good, however, the texture and the smell are extremely important, sometimes they even put scents on them that attract more to wear them, which in some way hooks the consumer to buy a certain brand.


The manufacturers of the products are not obliged to include the type of fragrances in the products since it is considered a secret of the same, also if you realize they are not included in the labels.


To end…


Cosmetics have a long history behind them and manufacturers have investigated countless things over the years to improve them as well as the ingredients and that they comply with the strict regularity.

It must be remembered and highlighted that the cosmetic industry is a millionaire business that has often used very dangerous chemical products for the skin, endangering human health and being eliminated from the market.


Now that we have a broader idea of what ingredients we put on our faces, you can decide which ones are the safest for you.
