A preservative used in many skincare products, mainly used as a broad spectrum preservative that is low cost. Some common parabens include; Methylparaben (E number E218), Ethylparaben (E214), Propylparaben (E216), Butylparaben and Heptylparaben (E209) Less common parabens include Isobutylparaben, Isopropylparaben, Benzylparaben.
Now classified as a skin irritant and prohibited for use in certified organic skin care products by Ecocert and COSMOS, the new EU organic certification standard.
Found in a broad spectrum of extracts. At SKN-RG we do not use alcohol which can cause skin irritations including; Dryness, Rosacea, Excema and can reduce the absorption of Vitamin A, essential for reduction of the ageing process.
Q: Your products say they do not contain “Alcohol” yet the ingredients list has: Benzyl Alcohol and Cetyl Alcohol can you explain what these are?
In scientific terms “alcohol” refers to a group of organic compounds, not consumer “over the counter alcohol which contains (ethanol)”. Some skincare manufacturers use this type of Alcohol for extraction purposes and can often causes skin irritations. SKN-RG does not use Alchohol in any of their products.
Although some ingredient terms present in our list (for example Cetyl Alcohol), Alcohol is used in the name but does not contain “ethanol”, which is the volatile alcohol that can cause serious skin irritations. SKN-RG’s Cetyl Alcohol is derived from sustainable plant extract.
Both our Benzyl Alcohol & Cetyl Alcohol is “ethanol” free, sourced ethically, and derived from ecological sources, classified as ecologically friendly “raw material base” accepted by EU regulations, The Soil Association, Leaping Bunny and The Vegan Society as a safe broad spectrum preservative.
Beeswax is an animal derivative and is not used in SKN-RG facial products we refrain from using it in our facial creams. Why? Our pores need to breathe. Beeswax cannot always be easily absorbed by the skin and can clog, being referred to as comedogenic (pore blocking). We choose to use fast-absorbing dermatological graded oils and waxes that are known to allow the skin to breathe.
No Artificial fragrances
Perfumes and fragrances often contain phthalates and other chemicals which can irritate skin and cause reactions.
Chemical ingredients derived from petroleum, in particular Propylene Glycol, are one of the most common petrochemicals used in skincare products for longevity and moisturising properties. They can cause many irritations and are best avoided.
Formaldehyde is a preservative considered as a known human carcinogen by many expert and government bodies, including the United States National Toxicology Program and the International Agency for Research on Cancer. It is banned in Japan and Sweden with high restrictions in the EU.
No Sodium Lauryl Sulfate
Sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) is a highly classified irritant used in skin-care products as a cleansing agent. In fact, it is considered a standard comparison substance for measuring skin irritancy of other ingredients. Thus, in scientific studies, when establishing whether or not an ingredient is problematic for skin they compare the effect to the results of SLS.
Diethyl Phthalate [DEP) is most commonly used as a fixative of a perfume ingredient prolonging the scent of perfumes. And is derived synthetically.
While Lanolin cream has a number of beneficial properties, including the ability to heal and moisturise dry, cracked skin, people considering its use should be aware that Lanolin oil has been known to cause allergic reactions in those individuals with sensitive skin.
No Colours or Bleach
Our products do not contain skin irritants such as colours or bleach. They are as nature intended and some may have variations in colour.
Have A Query?
I have a query about an ingredient that is in SKN-RG.
At SKN-RG we believe that your confidence in our formulations and ingredients selection is paramount. We make every effort to be as transparent as possible in our formulations and ingredients, listing each ingredient in the product details. Some ingredients can sound quite harsh, for example: Hyaluronic Acid, a micro fine powder that holds upto 1000 times in weight in water, keeping your skin perfectly hydrated, plump and youthful. Not as harsh as its name may suggest.
