Their main functions are as enzymes, structure proteins (keratin, collagen and elastin) and transport proteins. The proteins derived from soy have a tightening effect on skin and form a fine film that gives it a satiny finish.
Soy Butter infuses the skin with lipids to hydrate and protect skin cells. As skin ages, the intercellular bond between skin cells becomes depleted, making it dry and porous, causing the skin to become less effective as a barrier against moisture loss. Soy butter rehydrates the lipid barrier to help hold in the skin’s intrinsic moisture while softening dry, chafed, and damaged skin.

Ingredients We Never Use
Click here to reveal the ingredients we never ever use
Artifical Color and Fragrance
Proven to be the most prevalent sensitizers (cause of allergic reactions or chemical sensitivities) in cosmetic preparations.
DEA, MEA, TEA, or MIPA Compounds
These are synthetic surfactants used in soaps and many shampoos. These ingredients are allergenic, and may also be contaminated with nitrosamines, a potent class of carcinogens. They’re on the FDA’s list of suspected carcinogens.
A suspected carcinogen, this colorless, pungent, irritating substance is found in many preservatives, such as quaternium-15, the hydantoins and ureas, and surfactants such as sodium lauryl sulfate.
Hydrolyzed Animal Protein
Innersense products do not contain any animal by-products and were not tested on animals.
Imidazolidinyl and Diazolidinyl Urea
These commonly used preservatives are antiseptic and deodorizing. They have been established by the American Academy of Dermatology to be primary causes of contact dermatitis (causing adverse reactions such as rashes that can be quite severe). Keep clear of the eye area, as it is an eye irritant.
Lanolin itself is perfectly safe. But cosmetic-grade lanolin can be contaminated with carcinogenic pesticides such as DDT, dieldrin, and lindane, in addition to other neurotoxic pesticides.
Methylchloroisothiazolinone and Methylisothiazolinone
Sensitizers, these are known to cause allergies.
PEG-8 (polyethylene glycol)
This synthetic detergent is on the FDA’s list of suspected carcinogens, and according to the FDA is “highly allergenic.”
These synthetic plant glycols are used as binders, solvents, emollients, plasticizers, bases, carriers, emulsifiers and dispersants. They cause many allergic reactions. PEG compounds may contain the carcinogenic contaminant, Dioxane.
Made from petroleum or “crude oil”, petrochemicals include some of the most valuable medical and industrial substances ever known, yet they also include some of the most hazardous substances ever made. This danger is a result of the following: in nature, each natural compound (and there are millions) is balanced by an associated natural enzyme that can break it down and cause it to harmlessly decompose. However, many synthetic organic chemicals don’t occur in nature and no natural enzymes exist to break them down. As a result, many petrochemicals remain in the environment for a long time. Petroleum pollutes the environment when we drill for it, when we transport it, and when we refine it. Oil spills average a million gallons a month into the environment and refineries release 8.25 million pounds of toxins into our air and water each year. Every time we use a petrochemical product, we contribute to this pollution. And we further deplete an important and non-renewable global resource whose supplies are expected to disappear around the year 2050.
Chemicals used to add flexibility and dissolve other ingredients in; they can be absorbed through the skin or inhaled and have been linked to birth defects in the male reproductive system.
A neurotoxin, this petroleum-derived humectant, surfactant, solvent, and carrier that is known to cause contact dermatitis along with a wide variety of allergic reactions.
Derived from roses, this is an aromatic ether alcohol. It is used as a preservative and a fragrance ingredient in cosmetic preparations.
Quaternary Ammonium Compounds
A wide variety of these caustic ammonium compounds are used in cosmetics, especially hair conditioners. They may give a soft feel to the hair and stabilize the rinse’s or conditioner’s emulsion, but in the long run they dry the scalp and hair and make the hair brittle. They’re also allergenic and pollute the environment.
Sulfates are used in the manufacture of synthetic soaps, detergents, emollient creams and shampoos (like sodium lauryl and laureth sulfate). Sulfates are harmful to marine life and the environment. They can cause allergic reactions and dry skin and hair. They are also an eye irritant.
A non-irritating food-grade preservative used to control microbial growth in cosmetic preparations.
De-ionized, it is essential that water used in cosmetic preparations is sterile to avoid contamination of the product. This ingredient is a know carcinogen with links to health issues.
