Hmm, that's a lot of unpronounceable chemicals there ! I'm not sure on all the ingredients but there's a few that's on the list of things to avoid/harmful chemicals.

Sodium Hydroxide is classed as a strong skin irritant, so I'd consider that before you buy it :) It should be ok if you don't have sensitive skin though.

personally I think natural products are best but if that's not your thing then I'd go ahead and give that moisturiser a try.

Thanks for your input guys! Yeah fortunately the sodium hydroxide is last ingredient listed, which means there is a tiny percentage (plus, my skin is very acne prone but not sensitive thankfully)

Those products didn't have any of the "red flag" ingredients that I know of, and i'm glad you don't see any either! I'll give them a try and update this thread in a few weeks (if I remember teehee.gif )

Thanks Michelle, I appreciate you pointing out the difference between the two :). I'll send the company an email asking about the concentration of niacinamide.
