Methyl Gluceth-20: Humectants (meaning they preserve the moisture content of materials)
Â Glycerin is a solvent, an emollient and humectant that helps keep moisture in the cream and helps the product to spread better across a surface, reducing drag and pull. It is nontoxic, nonirritating and nonallergenic to the skin.
Â Triethanolamine is a Surfactant. A surfactant is a wetting ingredient that lowers waterâ€™s surface tension allowing the product to spread more easily over the skin and is used when a mild product is required for the skin.
Â Hydroxyethylcellulose is a modified cellulose (chief constituent of the fiber of plants) used as a binder, emulsion stabilizer and thickener.
