Homosalate: is a synthetic sunscreen. It is a used as an ultraviolet light absorber. It is considered to be a hormone disrupter, it is also considered to be an environmental toxin. There are also concerns over contamination with other toxins such as saliylic acid and trimehtylcyclohexanol. On top of that it is said to enhance skin absorption for other chemicals.
Octinoxate: this ingredient is widely used in most sunscreens on the market. It is also a sunscreen agent. It is an endocrine (hormone) disrupter, it also blocks brain signaling. It is a genotoxin, an environmental toxin, ecotoxin, a non-reproductive organ toxin, and enhances skin absorption.
Octisalate: this ingredient is also a sunscreen agent. Although it appears to be a bit more gentle or less toxic than the others mentioned. Although as I say that it is still considered to be a known immunotoxin or allergen, an environmental toxin, and enhances skin absorption
|Titanium dioxide: is derived from titanium and oxygen. It is used to impart whiteness in personal care products and absorbs or reflects light which helps to protect the product from deterioration. It is considered to be a medium health priority, with limited evidence of it being a carcinogen. Some studies have shown it to be a positive mutagen.|
|Water: H2O, the stuff we drink.
Isohexadecane: is a high purity iso-paraffin, in other words it is a branched chain hydrocarbon with 16 carbons. It is used as a skin conditioning agent. It is considered to be a non-reproductive organ system toxin, as well as an environmental toxin.
Cetyl PEG/PPG-10/1 Dimethicone: this ingredient is a combination of a few different chemicals. it is a silicon based polymer with PEG and PPG. It is used as a skin conditioning agent. It is thought to be a non-reproductive organ toxin. There is also concerns over contamination with other known toxins such as ethylene oxide and 1,4-dioxane. You can read more about it at this link.
Dibutyl Adipate: is derived from butyl alcohol and adipic acid. It is used as a skin conditioning agent. It appears to be of low toxicity to humans and to the environment.
C30-38 Olefin/Isopropyl Meleate/MA Copolymer: is a copolymer of a few different chemicals. It is used as a viscosity controlling agent and an emulsifying agent. It appears to be of low toxicity, although that could be in part to the lack on research. I had a really hard time finding any information on this ingredient, I am hoping with time and awareness that more information will be available.
