We’re back with another episode of ‘Under the Cap’! If you missed part 1 on Dove Soap – click here to check it out. A lot of you said it gave you some great insights into products you never thought twice about.
Remember, we don’t really believe there is a ‘good’ or ‘bad’ list of ingredients. The adage “if you can’t pronounce it, it’s probably not good” isn’t always true, especially when ingredients are listed using INCI names and something ‘innocuous’ like Shea Butter is listed as Butyrospermum Parkii. Neither is ‘natural’ always best (would you drink a bucket of salt water from the ocean)? But it does give us a starting point to think about things.
This week, we’re diving under the cap of a Nivea product many of you use. While not everything you put on your skin will get absorbed into your bloodstream (if that were the case, after every shower we’d become balloons), the epidermis – or outermost layer of skin – is still affected by what goes on top of it. Some companies use ingredients because they’re quite cheaply manufactured, and not necessarily because they’re the best for our skin.
Just as you do when buying food, check the ingredients in your skincare products and make sure you’re aware of what you’re putting on your face. Take a look below!

Water. In a rinse-off product like a soap, some formulators don’t believe in using expensive or rare hydrosols, so water is a great alternative.
