Ingredients Glossary

Only as pure as the ingredients we use

We are committed to producing natural skincare and body care products that are both highly beneficial to the long term health and vitality of your skin, senses and wellbeing, and friendly to our planet. Our products are free from Parabens, Alcohol, Phenoxyethanol, Petrochemicals, Detergents (SLS/SLES) and artificial fragrances - we don't need them to nurture with nature.

The government requires all products of a cosmetic nature use the International Nomenclature Cosmetic Ingredient (INCI) name on package labels. This insures consistency in the listing of ingredient names from product to product, country to country and language to language. Although many consumers may be able to recognize a basic plant name and devise that it is a natural ingredient, there are many naturalyl-sourced ingredients that, from their INCI name alone, may not seem all that friendly until one understands what they actually are and where they came from - Purple Essentials is working to insure all our labels meet this requirement.

Listed below are the ingredients we use at Purple Essentials - their Common Name, INCI, a brief description of their benefits and a clickable list of all our products that use that particular ingredient.
