The combination of (ethylenedinitrilo) tetraacetic acid disodium, cetearyl alcohol, glycerin, 1,2- Butylene Glycol, carbomer, ethyl hexyl methoxy cinnamate, titanium dioxide, isopropyl myristate, glyceryl stearate SE, benzophenone-3, silica & xanthan gum, phospholipids, in a broad-spectrum UVA and UVB protection, antioxidant, water-resistant, and non-comedogenic sunscreen provides a range of benefits.
1. (Ethylenedinitrilo) tetraacetic acid disodium: (Ethylenedinitrilo) tetraacetic acid disodium, also known as disodium EDTA, is a chelating agent used to improve the stability and effectiveness of formulations.
2. Cetearyl alcohol: Cetearyl alcohol acts as an emollient, helping to soften and smooth the skin. It also functions as a co-emulsifier, aiding in the formation and stabilization of product formulations.
3. Glycerin: Glycerin is a humectant that attracts and retains moisture in the skin, improving hydration.
4. 1,2-Butylene Glycol: 1,2-Butylene Glycol is a humectant that hydrates the skin and enhances the texture of cosmetic formulations.
5. Carbomer: Carbomer is a group of synthetic polymers that act as thickening agents and stabilize the formulation, contributing to its texture.
6. Ethyl hexyl methoxy cinnamate: Ethyl hexyl methoxy cinnamate, also known as octinoxate, is a chemical sunscreen that absorbs UVB rays, safeguarding the skin against sunburn.
7. Titanium dioxide: Titanium dioxide is a mineral sunscreen ingredient that provides protection against both UVA and UVB rays. It acts as a physical barrier, reflecting and scattering sunlight away from the skin.
8. Isopropyl myristate: Isopropyl myristate is an emollient that helps smooth and soften the skin. It also aids in improving product spreadability.
9. Glyceryl stearate SE: Glyceryl stearate SE is an emulsifier derived from vegetable sources.
