At Trilogy, clean, natural beauty is at the heart of every product we make. But even so, when you look at an ingredients list on skincare and cosmetics, it can look like another language (and often it is).
The reason for that, with Trilogy at least, is that we list all our ingredients in accordance with the INCI
(International Nomenclature Cosmetic Ingredient) system. This basically means that the terms used for each ingredient are the same around the world and are usually – but not always – an ingredient’s Latin or botanical name.
But, because it’s unlikely that Latin is in the list of languages you speak, it’s understandable if your eyes gloss over when inspecting the ingredients list. What is important though is that you know how to look for ingredients that, we think, should be avoided to make sure we only put the best on our skin.
