“I would really hope that we evolve as a sector to get to a point where the consumer doesn’t feel that they need to read the ingredient list to make sure that their product is safe,” says clean cosmetic chemist Krupa Koestline—but in the meantime? There’s a lot to learn. In this episode of Clean Beauty School, mindbodygreen beauty director Alexandra Engler and Koestline discuss how to decode your ingredient list to make sure both it’s safe and effective—with tips like why alcohols aren’t always bad, how to interpret ingredient order, and why she thinks user behavior should influence formulations.   Show notes: -Read up on what “actives” are in your formulas.  -Learn about ethical concerns around mica mining & how you can help.  -Learn more about endocrine disruptors.  -For her favorite effective ingredients, look for these on your ingredient lists: vitamin C derivatives like tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate & aminopropyl ascorbyl phosphate, niacinamide, and polyhydroxy acid.  Comments: [email protected] Sponsorship inquiries: [email protected]
