INCI: Cetearyl alcohol, ethylhexylstearate, tsetrimoniya chlorite, tsetearet-20
Description of components:
Cetearyl alcohol - is different ratios 50/50, 30/70 - mix of cetyl and stearyl alcohols. Also the structure-forming component is used in cosmetics as emolent. Natural origin, it is developed from coconut oil, in cosmetics it is used as solvent, emulsifier, thickener, structural basis for other ingredients.
Cetrimonium chloride - salt of quarternary ammonium. It is used when developing hair conditioners, paints, other hair care products, and also when developing some care products for skin.
Carries out functions:
- antistatic, reducing static electricity by neutralization of electric charge by surfaces;
- preservative, first of all suppresses development of microorganisms in cosmetics. This preservative is included into the list of the preservatives (The appendix VI of the Directive on cosmetics) allowed for use;
- the antimicrobic agent, helps to clear skin and to prevent emergence of smell, destroying and suppressing growth of microorganisms;
- the emulsifying agent, helps to mix water with oil and dirt so they can be washed away;
- Surfactant, reduces superficial tension of cosmetics and by that facilitates its uniform drawing.
In pure form cetrimonium chloride is very strong irritant for integuments, mucous membranes, but, estimating scientific data at The CIR Expert Panel have come to conclusion that substance is safe for use in the washed-away products and safe for use in concentration to 0,25% in indelible perfumery and cosmetic products.
Is not carcinogen.
In compliance with Derektiva of the European Union about cosmetics, cetrimonium chloride can be used as preservative at maksimalnoykontsentration of 0,1%.
Ethylhexyl stearate is substance which acts as a part of modern cosmetics as the reagent for skin intended for mitigation of skin and improvement of its appearance. Being typical emolent - substance which is added to creams and lotions for creation of instant effect of velvet and smoothness, ethylhexyl stearate is included into fatty phase of set of cosmetics and possesses the magnificent softening properties.
Without getting deep into skin, this substance does not make any impact on living cells and creates exclusively cosmetic effect, without active intervention in physiology temporarily improving appearance of skin. Meanwhile, it reliably protects skin from mechanical damages and loss of moisture, provides coupling of horn scales on its surface; promotes strengthening of barrier functions of epidermis and recovery of lipidic balance, reducing thereby transepidermalny evaporation of water.
Popularity stearate ethylhexyl as a part of cosmetics is caused by the fact that, being traditional emolent, it considerably improves consumer quality of cosmetic products, determining its fine appearance, absorbency, ease of distribution by skin, and also after drawing on skin giving it unusual feeling of softness, smoothness and silkiness.
Stearate as a part of means for especially sensitive skin, the moistening face and body emulsions, the softening anti-aging creams and so forth is especially good ethylhexyl.
However it is necessary to mention danger which stearate can conceal in itself ethylhexyl. First, depending on concentration it has restrictions in use. Secondly, in rare instances can cause clogging of time, having provoked thereby emergence of acne rash.
Somehow I had liked this substance according to this description, probably will order it separately still)
Tsetearet-20 - surface-active substance. It is capable to destroy particles of fat or dirt, promotes their easy removal from surface of skin or hair. Reduces superficial tension of liquid, improves wetting of skin and hair. Purpose of product of Tseteares-20(tsetearet-20)): Emulsifier, stabilizer. Contraindications: Individual intolerance.
Цетеарес-20(Цетеарет-20) - emulsifier - substance which hold water and oils in the stirred (emulsion) state (chisl0 20 reflects chemical structure of molecule). It is not toxic, does not cause allergy.
Chemical character of Tseteares-20(tsetearet-20)): anion.
Цетеарес-20(Цетеарет-20) it sochetivatsya well with anion and cationic Surfactants. In Tseteares-20(tsetearet-20) cream gives the structure easy for consistence and silk feelings when drawing.
