"Monarch Shaving Soap"
From product name
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, aloe barbadensis leaf juice.

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: cocos nucifera oil, ricinus communis seed oil.

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

Ingredients by volume

Ingredient Estimated concentration
Helps oil and water mix together and works as an emollient
25% - 38%
7.7% - 11.5%
An emollient. Found to be as effective as a moisturizer for dry skin as mineral oil. Could be comedogenic
6% - 9%
Might have some moisturizing properties
4.1% - 6.2%
Traditionally used to treat sunburns, dermatitis and inflammation, but evidence for its effectiveness is lacking. The extract can contain humectants that help attract water into the skin
3.1% - 4.7%
One of the best moisturizing ingredients. Naturally present in skin. It attracts water to the upper layer of the skin working as a humectant
2.8% - 4.2%
Used to adjust the pH level of products
2.3% - 3.5%
A plant oil that can help soften the skin. It might be helpful in calming down inflammation, but solid research is lacking. Is often used in lip products to create the needed product consistency
2.1% - 3.2%
An emollient. Found to be as effective as a moisturizer for dry skin as mineral oil. Could be comedogenic
1.6% - 2.4%
An emollient that helps soften the skin and could be helpful in repairing its barrier function
1.2% - 1.8%
Sebum of wool-bearing animals (most commonly sheep). Helps soften the upper layer of the skin and reduce the skin water loss. In rare cases could be an allergen. Not suitable for vegans
1% - 1.5%
The ingredient is not recognized
TBC
0.8% - 1.25%

0.6% - 1.35%
Used to adjust the product's pH
0.55% - 1.35%
An aromatic blend of unspecified and possibly irritating ingredients
0.45% - 1.1%
Helps stabilize the product formulation
0.4% - 0.95%
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%
Can work as an exfoliant but is typically used to adjust the product pH
0.3% - 0.75%
A plant extract that can contain an antioxidant compound
0.15% - 0.65%
A plant extract that can help neutralize free radicals in skin. It contains a compound salicin that can theoretically be converted into salicylic acid that, in turn, helps reduce inflammation in skin, but the evidence of effectiveness in skin is lacking and the extract is usually not used in a concentration that would enable an exfoliating effect
0.15% - 0.6%
0.15% - 0.5%
