Water is used in the formulation of virtually every type of cosmetic and personal care product.
Water is primarily used as a solvent in cosmetics and personal care products in which it dissolves many of the ingredients that impart skin benefits, such as conditioning agents.
Cetearyl Alcohol and the other fatty alcohols keep an emulsion from separating into its oil and liquid components. These ingredients are also used to alter the thickness of liquid products. Plant based.
Decyl Oleate acts as a lubricant on the skin surface, which gives the skin a soft and smooth appearance. It also form a thin film on the skin that is neither greasy nor tacky.Function
Ceteareth ingredients are used in skin care products, moisturizers, hair conditioners, suntan and indoor tanning products and hair dyes, colors, and tints. They help to form emulsions by reducing the surface tension of the substances to be emulsified.
Allantoin is a naturally occurring nitrogenous compound used as a skin conditioning agent. It is a moisturizing, healing, anti-irritating, soothing, and non-toxic chemical compound useful in cosmetics. It is an effective cell-proliferating and healing agent that stimulates good tissue formation.
The Over-the Counter (non-prescription) Topical Analgesic Review Panel of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has graded allantoin as a Category I active component in skin protecting medications. In other words, the FDA has classified allantoin as a safe and effective non-prescription medication for skin care. Over several decades, allantoin has been extensively used in cosmetic products as well as over-the-counter topical preparations. Products containing allantoin are most popular as medications that are applied topically to prevent as well as treat dehydrated and cracked or roughened skin and lips.
Allantoin can be derived from either animal by-products or from plants. Allantoin can be found in several plants, such as sugar beet, comfrey, chamomile, tobacco seed and even wheat sprouts. A popular source of allantoin is the herbal extract of comfrey.
The allantoin used in Glysolid is plant-based.
Dimethicone is a silicon-based polymer that is a man-made synthetic molecule made up of repeating units called monomers. Silicon is the second most abundant element in the Earth's crust after oxygen. Dimethicone is used in the formulation of a wide range of cosmetics and personal care products including creams and lotions, bath soaps, shampoo and hair care products.
A blend of dimethicone and glycerin was found to be particularly effective in a study, as detailed in the Clinical & Experimental Dermatology (CED) Journal (published November 27, 2006). The study found that epidermal thickness increased, barrier function improved and melanin intensity decreased. The researchers concluded that even aged skin “may appear younger, benefiting structurally and functionally from routine use of skin creams containing dimethicone and glycerin".
Sodium Cetearyl Sulfate is a sodium salt of a mixture of cetyl and stearyl sulfate. It is frequently used in cosmetics and personal care products.
Surfactant; cleansing agent.
Ceteareth ingredients are used in skin care products, moisturizers, hair conditioners, suntan and indoor tanning products and hair dyes, colors, and tints. They help to form emulsions by reducing the surface tension of the substances to be emulsified.Function
Silica, also called silicone dioxide, is a mineral. It is the most common constituent of sand. The Silica used in cosmetics and personal care products is amorphous Silica. This means that the Silica has no definite form. Silica is used in a wide range of cosmetics and personal care products including bath products, eye makeup, hair care products, makeup, nail care products, oral hygiene products and skin care products.Function
Glysolid Skin Cream is the advanced European formula that helps to smooth and soften dry to very dry skin on hands, feet, and the body. With allantoin and a high glycerin content, Glysolid greatly improves the look and feel of skin in just one application.
Glysolid Skin Cream is unlike other skin care products - you'll notice this the first time you try it. Most creams and lotions available today are thin and watery. They absorb quickly but in order to get any lasting benefit, you have to reapply them multiple times per day. Glysolid works differently. It is thick, smooth, and silky. When applied to the skin, Glysolid adds a light protective film, locking in your skin's natural oils and moisture. This protection lasts for hours, providing your skin with the soothing moisture to help repair even the driest skin.
Due to its unique formula, Glysolid Skin Cream is especially effective on the toughest areas of your body: hands, elbows, feet, heels, and knees. Light creams and lotions are almost completely ineffective for these trouble spots. However, Glysolid quickly restores the natural beauty and softness of your skin. With regular use, your skin remains soft, smooth, and healthy looking.
Glysolid Skin Cream is a highly effective skin softener. Its power lies behind the proven European formula, which combines allantoin with a high glycerin content.
Glysolid can be used like other skin creams. But, if you're suffering with dry skin or other skin issues and need quick relief, here are some great treatments to try that will help your skin look and feel better quickly.
