A-Z Ingredients

This dictionary is a work in progress. Every Saturday, I publish a new post in my Know Your Ingredients series, and then add the link to this page. I thought it’d be handy to have them all gathered together, so if you’re wondering what an ingredient in your favourite moisturizer or mascara does, you can easily and quickly look it up. If the ingredient you’re looking for is not listed here yet, feel free to contact me and request it.
