After the water is combined with other ingredients, its original status is unimportant. Silicones are a remarkable, diverse, and ubiquitous group of ingredients that show up in over 80% of all cosmetic products being sold. Silicones may look, act, and have a feel reminiscent of oil, but they are not oils. Technically speaking, silicone as a chemical compound is often discussed in relation to fluid technology.

ALPHA HYDROXY ACID (AHA) AND BETA HYDROXY ACID (BHA) EXFOLIANTS: Without question AHAs and BHA are the most effective exfoliants you can use when they are well-formulated. I apply very specific criteria to determine if an AHA or BHA product will be an effective exfoliant. When it comes to AHAs and BHA, the crucial information comes in two parts. One is the type of ingredient and its concentration in the product; the other is the pH of the product. 5. BHA works best at concentrations of between 1% and 2% at an optimal pH of 3, its effectiveness diminishing as the pH increases beyond 4.

For example, if a product makes claims about containing antioxidants or anti-irritants, then it better contain a convincing amount of these ingredients. Thus, you will notice that many more products receive neutral ratings in this edition than in previous editions, and many of those neutral ratings are because of inadequate packaging. In this book, I make the final and fundamental determination for each individual product rating based on specific criteria established for each product category.
