Formula review

WIMJ summary

This product can help improve hydration of the skin with the two types of ingredients.

The first type is called “humectants”:
these ingredients help attract water. When humectants are on the surface of the skin, they “pull in” the moisture from the outside environment, or from within deeper layers of the skin. The following ingredients in this product do the job: glycerin, sucrose.

This product also contains ingredients called “occlusives”. They help reduce the speed with which our skin loses moisture to the outside environment. These ingredients also help soften the upper layer of the skin, so it feels less tight and nicer to the touch. The following ingredients in this product do the job: dimethicone, cholesterol.

The following ingredients in this product are especially good for supporting the skin barrier and helping with the hydration level: linoleic acid, phytosphingosine

WIMJ summary

This product contains antioxidants (caffeine, scutellaria baicalensis root extract). In theory, they could help neutralize free radicals in skin and lessen the damage it gets from the UV light (sun), but there is no evidence that these ingredients can have a noticeable effect in skin.

Ingredients by volume

Ingredient Estimated concentration
A silicone that helps improve the product texture and spreadability. Can absord oil creating a short-term mattifying effect on the skin
24% - 35%
Plain old water
8.3% - 12.4%
4.1% - 6.1%
Used to thicken the product's texture
3% - 4.6%
Used to create a nice product texture and help delivery of other ingredients. Might be somewhat helpful in attracting water to the upper layer of the skin
2.3% - 3.5%
A silicone that forms a light film on the skin surface helping to bind water and temporarily absorb oils creating a matt and powdery feel
1.9% - 2.9%
1.4% - 2.2%
A plant extract that might contain arbutin, a compound that has skin-lightening properties. Might have some anti-oxidant activity. Is unlikely to be effective though in the concentrations typically used in skincare products
1.3% - 1.9%
Might be helpful in neutralizing free radicals. Can have a dehydration effect that might somewhat decrease the look of puffy eyes
1.1% - 1.6%
A type of lipid that is naturally present in skin. It might help in repairing skin barrier function and has anti-bacterial effect
1% - 1.5%
Plant extract that might have moisturizing properties. Avoid if you suffer from wheat or gluten intolerance
0.8% - 1.2%
A plant extract that might contain a compound baicalin that could be helpful in neutralizing free radicals and reducing inflammation in skin. The baicalin concentration in skincare products is often too low for an effective action. Can be used for its fragrant properties
0.45% - 1%
A protein derived from milk. In skincare products, might help to soften the upper layer of the skin
0.5% - 1.2%
An emollient that helps soften the skin but is not effective for restoring its barrier function. Might be helpful to calm down inflammation
0.5% - 1.15%
Can contain potent anti-oxidant compounds (abbreviated ECG, GCG, EGC, and EGCG) that might help protect the skin from free radicals. Can help calm down inflammation and has some anti-bacterial properties. Unfortunately, these antioxidants are unstable and lose their effectiveness very quickly in products. The concentration of the antioxidant compounds in the extract also tends to be low to be effective in topical formulation
0.45% - 1.05%
An emollient that is naturally found in skin
0.45% - 1.1%
An excellent emollient. Helps soften the skin, restore its barrier function, and can help to calm down inflammation. It can be helpful to prevent blemishes and clogged pores
0.5% - 1.15%
A more stable but less bio-available form of vitamin E compared to Tocopherol. Might help moisturize and protect the skin from free radicals, but mostly used in low concentrations to stabilize other ingredients.
0.4% - 0.9%
A derivative of vitamin C that is more stable, but less bioavailable than the pure form of vitamin C. It does not penetrate the skin well, but has been shown to convert to pure vitamin C once in skin. It can be helpful in stimulating collagen production and lightening the skin tone, but the required concentration is likely to be very high
0.35% - 0.8%
0.15% - 0.7%
Can help attract water to the upper layer of the skin. In crystal form, it can work as a gentle exfoliant, gentler than the salt scrub. Helps stabilize the emulsion
0.15% - 0.65%
One of the best moisturizing ingredients. Naturally present in skin. It attracts water to the upper layer of the skin working as a humectant
0.2% - 0.75%
A silicone that helps to reduce water loss from the surface of the skin. Can temporarily "fill in" lines and wrinkles, absorb oil, and create a nice product finish
0.2% - 0.7%
Helps water and oil mix together and has an anti-microbial effect helping to preserve product formulations
0.15% - 0.7%
A silicone that mixes with water creating nice light-weight product texture
0.15% - 0.6%
0.1% - 0.45%
One of the most effective and the most studied occlusive ingredients that creates a protective layer on top of the skin preventing moisture loss
0.15% - 0.55%
A type of silicone that helps water and oil mix together. Can help to soften upper layer of the skin
0.1% - 0.45%
Is used to dissolve other ingredients and create nice product texture
0.1% - 0.45%
Used to thicken the product formulation and might help to add minerals to the surface of the skin. It is used in scrubs as a physical exfoliant. Can increase sensitivity to other ingredients if left on the skin or used in high concentration
0.1% - 0.3%
Stabilizes the product formulation
0.05% - 0.25%
Helps stabilize and preserve a product formulation
0.05% - 0.2%
A preservative
0.05% - 0.2%
