Tranquil Essence (Cucumber & Calendula) Ingredients

What's in OOMU's Tranquil Essence Witch Hazel, Cucumber, & Calendula facial toner? We want to help you understand the product you're using and what it's made of. We strive to use naturally derived ingredients that are certified as not tested on animals and are vegan in composition. Most of our ingredients are made in the USA, except when a specialized component is not available domestically. For example, Dead Sea salt or green tea extract.

Distilled Water (Aqua): The primary base for most toners, water acts as a solvent for dissolving other ingredients and provides hydration to the skin.

Glycerin: Derived from plant oils, glycerin is a humectant, meaning it helps retain moisture by drawing water into the outer layer of the skin.

Sodium Lactate: This compound is derived from the natural fermentation of sugars found in corn and beets, and is used to increase the moisture content of the skin.

Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel): Distilled from the witch hazel shrub, this natural extract acts as an astringent to help shrink pores, soothe skin, and reduce inflammation.

Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Fruit Extract: A refreshing plant extract from cucumbers known for hydrating and soothing the skin, often used to reduce puffiness.

Calendula Extract: Extracted from marigold flowers, this ingredient is known for its soothing properties and is commonly used to calm irritated skin.

Propylene Glycol, Diazolidinyl Urea, Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate (combined as Liquid Germall Plus at 0.3%): A preservative used to protect personal care products from bacteria, mold, and yeast. Propylene Glycol is a synthetic organic compound that attracts water, Diazolidinyl Urea acts as an antimicrobial, and Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate is a water-based preservative.

    Each of these ingredients has been selected for its properties that benefit skin health and the product's stability and effectiveness. The inclusion of Liquid Germall Plus ensures the product's longevity and safety by preventing microbial growth.
