The Apothekari Ingredients Dictionary is now live on our website!
We’ve been working hard to provide a list and definition of all the ingredients used in our scientific skin care line and hope that you’ll find this feature useful when doing research into selecting the best products for your skin care needs. We know that you have preferences when it comes to choosing treatments and we hope that this list of ingredients will make it easier to include products that benefit your skin and avoid those that may be problematic.
At Apothekari, we aim to be transparent about all aspects of our brand and our cosmetics ingredient dictionary is one way of doing that. We include a range of ingredients, including ones that are derived from plants (botanical) along with those synthesized in labs. One thing that we won’t waver on however, is that the ingredients in our products are safe, effective and incorporated in adequate concentrations and the correct pH to deliver results.
Here are a few tongue twisting ingredients that we love and that you may be curious about:
- Bisabolol (l-alpha). Derived from chamomile, this anti-inflammatory ingredient helps to soothe and calm the skin. Find it in our A is for Anti-Aging Serum.
- Cocamidopropyl Hydroxysultaine. This soap-like, yellow liquid is made by blending raw coconut oil with a chemical called dimethylaminopropylamin. It is used as a foam booster and viscosity builder. Find it in our AHA-Mazing Clean Exfoliating Gel.
- Fructooligosaccharides. Also known as oligofructose, these naturally occurring carbohydrates are derived from cane or beet sugar. They promote good surface bacteria, which protects the skin from harmful invasions and also increase the skin’s ability to retain moisture. Find it in our Daily Infusion Moisturizer.
- Phenylethyl Resorcinol. Also known as Symwhite 377, this ingredient is inspired from pinosylvin, a natural skin brightening compound occurring in pine. It is also an antioxidant and is effective in reducing the appearance of age-related sunspots and hyperpigmentation. Find it in A is for Anti-Aging Serum.
