Active ingredients are used in skincare products to address various skin concerns and issues such as dry or oily skin, eczema-prone skin, or to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. In this post, we discuss some commonly used active ingredients found in skincare products and their benefits for your skin, plus some hot tips for creating your own skincare products at home.
Do you ever look at the back of your skincare products and think “What on earth are all these ingredients?” Well, you're not alone. Most skincare products have a list of ingredients that make no sense to the average person. However, it is a legal requirement to list the names of ingredients by their INCI name which is recognised the world over, making it easier to check ingredients in different regions.
It’s useful when purchasing skincare products to have a basic knowledge of the ingredients. Why? So you can make sure you're buying products that will work for you and your skin type, as well as ensuring you know what you are choosing to put on your skin.
