Tightening Creams - What's in that stuff, anyway?


We're all more label conscious these days, and one thing we get frequent questions about is tightening cream. After all, you're putting this cream in a very sensitive area!

So, we did a little research and broke it down for you. Below is a list of the ingredients in each of the three tightening creams Scarlet Girl carries, and it's intended function in the recipe.

1. Like a Virgin Cream, Shrink Cream

Annuus seed oil - Sunflower seed oil.

Menthyl lactate - Complex derived from Lactic Acid and Menthol that cools and refreshes the skin.

Capsicum annuum resin (derived from peppers) - Ingredients that slow the loss of water from the skin by forming a barrier on the skin's surface. Ingredients that enhance the appearance of dry or damaged skin by reducing flaking and restoring suppleness.

Daucus carota sativa oil - Carrot oil

Retinyl palmitate - vitamin A; After its absorption into the skin, retinyl palmitate is converted to retinol, and ultimately to retinoic acid (the active form of vitamin A present in Retin-A).

Tocopheryl acetate - Vitamin E.

Prunus amygdalus dulcis oil - Almond oil; smoothes, softens, and protects skin and hair.

Triethanolamine - Used as a pH balancer in cosmetic preparations in a variety of different products - ranging from skin lotion, eye gels, moisturizers, shampoos, shaving foams etc.

Propylene glycol - Propylene glycol is used:
* As a moisturizer in medicines, cosmetics, food, toothpaste, mouth wash, and tobacco products.
* As a personal lubricant.

Methylparaben - An anti-fungal that is widely used as a preservative for food, drugs, and cosmetics

Propylparaben - a preservative typically found in many water-based cosmetics, such as creams, lotions, shampoos and bath products.

This is our preferred cream, because it contains the most body-friendly ingredients. The active ingredients are intended to create a temporary, very localized, swelling of the vaginal tissue when the cream is applied. This causes a tightening sensation, and for many women, more sensitivity.

Glycerin - A colorless, odorless, viscous liquid that is widely used in pharmaceutical formulations. Glycerol is a sugar alcohol, and is sweet-tasting and of low toxicity.

Flavor

Smilax Utilis Root Extract - Derived from sarsaparilla, used as a
flavoring agent, can also be used in other forms for an anti-inflammatory and cleansing agent (interestingly enough it was often used to treaty syphilis about 2-3 centuries ago).

Zingiber Officinale (ginger) Root Extract - Flavor

Capsicum Frutescens Fruit Extract (derived from peppers) -
Ingredients that slow the loss of water from the skin by forming a barrier on the skin's surface. Ingredients that enhance the appearance of dry or damaged skin by reducing flaking and restoring suppleness.
