Wait, that doesn’t sound natural!

In the world of beauty, ingredients often have complex and technical sounding names, tempting you to run and hide ratmher than try them out.  Take Polyglyceryl-5 Laurate, for example.  Breaking it down:  Poly = many + Glyceryl = glycerine (moisture binder).  Basically, “many glycerine molecules” joined together to result in a more moisturizing molecule.  Laurate = lauric (fatty acid).  Fatty acids contain long tails which are oil loving.  Marrying up both phases of your formulation Moisture + Fat = Emulsion.  All skin care creams are classified as emulsions.
