Ingredients used in cosmetics

The INCI list (International Nomenclature of Cosmetic Ingredients) is a mandatory nomenclature on cosmetics since 1999. Created in 1973 by an American association, the INCI list (or list of ingredients) aims to standardize the ingredients present in a product cosmetic.

Nevertheless, the manufacturer is not obliged to indicate the concentration for each one of them because of "the secret of manufacture". However, we know that they are classified "compulsorily" in order of inverse concentration (from high to low) for those dosed at more than 1%. Below 1%, the manufacturer can make it appear in the order he wants on the box.
