Ingredient Analysis of Fiama Lemongrass and Jojoba Shower Gel

Fiama Lemongrass & Jojoba Shower Gel Ingredients

Well! Fiama Shower Gel is a commercial product and thus, you can relate to the components pretty easily. These are the ingredients that you would find in almost every shampoo or shower gel. And honestly, I was not even expecting something great. So now, let us decode the components.

1. Aqua

Forms the base of any liquid product like face wash, shampoo, shower gel, etc.

2. Sodium Laureth Sulfate

A heavy-duty surfactant that is widely used in factories. It is a moderately hazardous component.

3. Acrylates Copolymer

It is a safe film former in cosmetics.

4. Cocamidopropyl Betaine

It is a widely used surfactant which is also a skin conditioning agent. Cocamidopropyl Betaine is moderately hazardous.

5. Fragrance

As always, the brand has not mentioned the specific name of the component. It is dubious indeed.

6. PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil

Well! Not to be confused it with the regular Castor Oil. This component is used as a perfuming agent and also as a solubilizing ingredient.

7. PEG-7 Glyceryl Cocoate

It is a moderately safe skin conditioning emollient.

8. Sodium Hydroxide

This is a moderately safe inorganic base that works as a pH adjuster or a buffering component.

9. Hydrogenated Jojoba Oil

Well! I was really happy to find this ingredient in the middle of the list. The middle position suggests moderate usage of the component in the formula. Honestly, I was expecting it to be among the last few ingredients. Hydrogenated Jojoba Oil is a safe skin conditioning agent and also an emulsion stabilizer.

10. Sunflower Seed Wax

A natural vegetative wax that works as a thickener and a film former in cosmetics.

11. Lemongrass Extract

It is packed with Vitamin A and C. This also helps to minimize the pores.

12. Seaweed Extract

Naturally packed with minerals and vitamins that help to soften the skin cells.

13. DMDM Hydantoin

Phew! I am surprised to come across this component every now and then. It is a proven formaldehyde releaser which is a carcinogen. In spite of everything, it is a widely used preservative in cosmetics.

14. Tetrasodium EDTA

This is a moderately safe chelating agent. It is basically used to reduce the reactivity of metal ions if any present in a cosmetic.

15. Butylated Hydroxytoluene

BHT is another name of this ingredient. It is moderately hazardous and works as a preservative in cosmetics (and also in food items).

16. Sodium Chloride

An inorganic salt that works mainly to increase the viscosity.

17. Hexyl Cinnamal

According to EWG, it is a moderately hazardous masking agent that is widely used in commercial cosmetics.

18. Linalool

This is basically a terpene. It works as a fragrance component and also as a masking agent. Well! The safety index is not good for this component too.

19. Benzyl Salicylate

This is moderately hazardous. The main functionality is to work as a fragrance ingredient and a UV absorber.

20. D-Limonene

Extracted from the peels of citrus fruits. It works as an aromatic agent in cosmetics.

21. Geraniol

Naturally occurring fragrance ingredient that is moderately safe.

22. CI 42090 and CI 19140

Cosmetic colourant namely Brilliant Blue and Tartrazine (synthetic lemon-yellow colour). The safety index of these two indicates moderately hazardous components.

And, that’s all. Well! The components are mostly hazardous to the environment or prone to toxicity. I feel the brand could have done a much better job than lining these ingredients. The only good point is that this shower gel is free from Parabens. So as an avid reader of cosmetic components, I cannot rate the ingredient list more than 2.5 out of 5.
