"Sensitive Cleansing Gel"
From product name
WIMJ summary

This product works by removing dirt and oil from the surface of the skin. It uses a combination of mild cleansing agents (cocamidopropyl betaine, decyl glucoside, peg-150 pentaerythrityl tetrastearate) and should be able to cleanse the skin gently. Still keep in mind that any cleansing can disrupt the skin barrier, and most people do not need to cleanse their skin more than once per day.

Even though this formulation is mild, the following cleansing agents could trigger an irritation or allergy for some people: cocamidopropyl betaine, decyl glucoside

Ingredients by volume

Ingredient Estimated concentration
Plain old water
40% - 60%
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
6.1% - 9.2%
Helps water and oil mix together. Used as a cleansing ingredient. Could be an allergen
5.1% - 7.6%
Helps oil and water mix together. Can be irritating
3.4% - 5%
2% - 3%
Might be somewhat helpful in reducing hyperpigmentation and neutralizing free radicals but its typical concentration in a product is too low for having an effect
1.6% - 2.4%
Plant extract that can have healing and anti-inflammatory properties. It is a potential allergen and can be irritating
1.2% - 1.8%
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
1% - 1.5%
An emollient that helps soften the skin and could be helpful in repairing its barrier function
0.8% - 1.2%
A great emollient. Contains vitamin E (tocopherol) which may give it some anti-oxidant properties. Can contain volatile compounds and can be irritating
0.5% - 1.15%
One of the best moisturizing ingredients. Naturally present in skin. It attracts water to the upper layer of the skin working as a humectant
0.4% - 0.95%
A preservative. It helps prevent bacterial growth in cosmetic products
0.15% - 0.65%
A preservative. Can be used to mask unpleasant smell. Can be irritating
0.1% - 0.4%
0.1% - 0.3%
A plant extract used as a fragrance. Can be irritating
0.05% - 0.2%
Can work as an exfoliant but is typically used to adjust the product pH
0.01% - 0.1%
