Humectant Ingredients or Chemicals 

Description of Humectant: humectants are hygroscopic ingredients that pull in moisture from their surroundings. This can be from the air, but also from underlying layers of the skin. Humectants are a type of moisturizer & emollient with the same effect as occlusive ingredients, however humectants pull in moisture, while occlusives form a barrier to keep the skin moist. Humectants are commonly added to Personal Care products, predominantly in Skin Care products, where they can be used to keep the skin hydrated and looking healthy. In the Pharmaceutical industry, humectants are added to some topical formulations to improve the solubility of specific active ingredients. Examples of humectants include D-Panthenol75, IngrePol Glycereth-26 or IngrePol PEG-1500S.
