Glossary

“All my products contain the cleanest organic ingredient deck. I only use the finest oils with the organic percentage in line with the Soil Association organic guidelines. In all, we could make a far cheaper, inferior product and make a way higher margin (way, way higher!) but choose not to. I put my name to every label and stand by the ingredients because I am so proud of the product and genuinely want to change the market place – from day one it has been about making pure, natural soap accessible to all. That is what gets me out of bed in the mornings. In all the supermarkets we are in, Little Soap Company was the first organic bar soap to line their shelves – and to enable this choice of having an organic alternative for consumers to happen, amid their weekly shop has been a huge drive to do what I do.

Labels on cosmetics are so important. I always say, as a general rule of thumb, if you don’t understand the INCI ingredients list on skincare it usually precludes a signal to potential “danger”, however, there are a few ingredients, that when you see them, you can scan right past them, knowing they won’t hurt you—and may even be good for your skin.

Legally, to comply with legislation we have to list ingredient names on the labels in Latin, so immediately the purest ingredients resemble the most difficult-to-pronounce, chemical sounding names (eg jojoba oil is known as ”simmondsia chinensis” and “ascorbic acid” is another name for vitamin C, or vitamin E’s are called “tocopherols” or “tocotrienols” etc). So don’t necessarily panic if you see something that sounds “chemical” on an organic ingredient. Certainly not in our products. I have listed all below so you can use as a glossary

At the end of the day, I want to be able to sleep at night knowing the aims and claims I make are transparent and true, which I can only assure you they are…

If you have any questions about our ingredients please feel free to call or email me– there is absolutely nothing to hide…”

Surfactants

Lauryl Glucoside which we use in some products for example is a “surfactant”. But bear with me, surfactant simply means a cleanser. Castor oil a non ionic surfactant just the same – as is any oil. The muddle here is the terminology of the traditional, chemically based toxic/harsh detergents/surfactants used widely in cosmetics and which we should avoid at all costs and the safe list *surfactant alternatives* which we replace them with in organic, free from products. Lauryl Glucoside is a safer alternative to regular harsh sulfates, which are typically used in cleansers to make the formula foam up. It is formed in the lab by blending a mixture of alcohols with some simple sugars. The raw materials come from vegetables or coconut, and the resulting ingredient has a “zero” hazard rating on the Skin Deep Database.

Preservatives: All skin care products found in shops contain one or more preservatives – otherwise they would quickly spoil.

If any product (containing water such as a liquid or a home made mask or cream) truly is free from all preservatives, then they should carry clear instructions to store them in a fridge and use within 2-3 weeks.

In our soaps all the preservatives we use are natural.

Alcohol

Alcohol in skincare causes a lot of confusion. Most people assume this ingredient is bad for skin because it dries it out – which is partly true. It depends on the particular alcohol and the amount of it in a product. The only alcohol we use is Denatured Alcohol (alcohol denat) in our Foaming Body Wash.

Most of the beauty advice about alcohol is negative. You are told to avoid alcohol. I say this too (but only when it comes to astringent toners).

The problem with this rule is, alcohol is a really loose general term. There are actually different types of alcohol, each with very different properties. So calling alcohol bad for skin is inaccurate.

Alcohol’s function may be as a solvent (dissolves something or thins out a mixture), emulsifier (allows two different substances to blend together), antiseptic (kills bacteria), buffer (balances the pH), stabilizer (prevents separation or unwanted reactions), preservative (minimizes bacterial growth or spoilage), penetration enhancer (improves delivery of an ingredient into skin), or fragrance fixative.
So you see, alcohol is a versatile ingredient that can perform a range of functions.

Three Super Little DIY Deodorants You Can Make at Home_LittleSoapCompany.co.uk

 

 

 

There are 3 kinds of alcohol that you can find in skincare:

1. Simple Alcohols
2. Fatty Alcohols
3. Aromatic Alcohols

Simple Alcohols

Simple alcohols are mostly used as an antiseptic – to give the product anti-bacterial qualities.
They are derived from sugars, starches, and other carbohydrates.
Simple alcohols are usually water-like.
Here are some examples:

  • methanol
  • ethanol (also goes by the name ethyl alcohol, used in rubbing alcohol)
  • isopropyl alcohol (also used in rubbing alcohol)
  • denatured alcohol (also appears as SD alcohol or Alcohol Denat.)

The type of alcohol that can dry out skin is SD Alcohol or Alcohol Denatured (abbreviated Alcohol Denat.) It may also appear as ‘Alcohol’ on a label. The alcohol in SD Alcohol is Ethyl Alcohol (Ethanol). It is also found in Rubbing Alcohol.

This kind of alcohol (a low molecular weight alcohol) dissolves surface oil but dries out skin (because it evaporates very quickly). When skin is dried out by alcohol, the skin’s protective barrier is weakened, which opens up the skin to all sorts of issues, including the likelihood of more irritation.

Although it is true that SD alcohol alcohol should not be applied ALONE to skin, but in combination with other ingredients, it may be perfectly fine. It depends on how much there is and what else is in the formula.

It is hard to know exactly how much alcohol there is in a product, because the percentage concentrations are never given. The only thing you can do is look to see where it falls on an ingredient list.

Ingredients are listed in order from highest concentration to lowest. But this is not enough information to draw a conclusion. The majority of a product typically consists of the first 6-10 ingredients. But even if alcohol is listed in the top 10, it doesn’t mean it’s drying. It depends on what else is in the formula. There might be some emollient or fatty ingredients that make the product non-drying.
The best thing to do is try the product on your skin before you buy. Or read some online reviews by other people. I realize it’s not easy getting access to samples. But trying it on your own skin is really the only way to find out.
Drugstore toners or astringents have a lot of simple alcohol because they are geared toward teenagers with oily skin. This is why you often hear people say alcohol is bad for skin. Astringent toners will dry out skin, which makes oily skin worse in the long run.
You should avoid buying toners or astringents in drugstores (almost all of them are for acne or oily skin). Pay more for a toner from a beauty retailer or department store. These are the kinds that are hydrating. (More about hydrating toners here, which also lists the different names they are called)
Here are some ingredient lists that contain alcohol, which are circled in yellow.  Although they contain alcohol, they are not drying. This is because of the other ingredients in the product.

Common Fatty Alcohols

Fatty alcohols are the non-drying type. They have emollient and occlusive properties.
Unlike simple alcohols, they tend to have a thick, waxy texture. Some are even solid.
They are used to give products a smooth, velvety feel, which give products a nicer slip.
Some fatty alcohols are occlusive, which makes them good for slowing down water loss.
Here are some examples:

  • behenyl alcohol
  • caprylic alcohol
  • cetearyl alcohol (very common)
  • cetyl alcohol (very common)
  • decyl alcohol
  • lauryl alcohol
  • myristyl alcohol
  • isostearyl alcohol
  • oleyl alcohol
  • stearyl alcohol

This kind of alcohol performs a similar function to a simple alcohol but has an aromatic fragrance. It functions as a preservative or as a component of a fragrance or essential oil.
Benzyl alcohol is the most common one, but it can be an irritant if derived from an essential oil.

So, there you have it. Just because an ingredient has the word “alcohol” in it doesn’t make it a bad ingredient.
Don’t stress out about whether an ingredient has alcohol in it. I wouldn’t spend too much time looking for it in the ingredient list, unless you’re buying products for oily skin, which is where it is more likely to pop up. You’ll know right away if a product is drying out your skin simply by trying it.
Just stay away from the drugstore astringents or any product labeled as an astringent.

Glossary of all ingredients we use:-

Oils

olive-oil
Extra Virgin Olive Oil contains antioxidants that when applied to the skin prevents premature aging. Vitamin E helps restore skin smoothness and protects against ultra violet light.
Coconut oil is an effective moisturizer on all skin types, including dry skin. It is a safe solution for preventing dryness or flaking of the skin. It also delays the appearance of wrinkles and aging skin.
palm-oil
Sustainable Palm oil has the ability to remove oil and dirt from the skin, however it contains a beneficial fatty agent that helps restore skins natural oils. Its used in skin care products for anti- aging properties while providing deep moisture which leaves the skin soft and supple.
For our statement about our use of Palm Oil see our factsheet here

Most palm oil is produced in Malaysia and Indonesia on land that was once thriving rainforest. As global demand grows, more and more forests are being cleared. In areas such as Borneo and Sumatra, rich in biodiversity, deforestation can be catastrophic. Endangered species including orang-utans, tigers, elephants and rhinos are losing critical habitats, pushing them toward extinction.

In 2004, WWF helped set up the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO), a group that includes every link in the global supply chain, from growers and processors, to food companies, retailers and investors.

With the RSPO, WWF developed a set of international standards for responsible palm oil production. Producers that show they meet these criteria are able to sell certified sustainable palm oil. That means companies that use it in their lipstick, soap, margarine or whatever else can make the same guarantee to their customers.

Certified sustainable palm oil cannot be grown in place of primary forest or in important conservation areas. Growers have to use the best growing practices to keep soil and water supplies healthy, and to reduce pollution and carbon emissions. They also need to pay a decent wage and respect the rights of workers and communities.

The first certified sustainable palm oil came on to the market in September 2008. Today, about 6.4% of all palm oil is certified sustainable and this is all we use in our hard bar soap and Foaming Body Wash, which uses palm for its properties.

Our products are not contributing to the destruction of the rainforests.
