How to Tighten the Skin with Creams and Cleansers There are many types of creams and cleansers. Some are more effective than others. For example, the "natural" moisturizing creams are not as good as the "chemical" moisturizers. The cream and cleanser are what you should use, but there are many other options, too. The goal is to get the right ingredients to work together. Here are the basic ingredients that make up creams and cleansers. They are : Water, butylene glycol, glycerin, butylene glycol dicaprylate/dicaprate, ethylhexylglycerin, caprylic/capric triglyceride, sodium hydroxide, cyclopentasiloxane, p-hydroxybenzoic acid, phenoxyethanol, sorbitan oleate, disodium EDTA, disodium EDTA, hydrogenated lecithin, xanthan gum, sodium chloride, phenoxyethanol, sodium hydroxide, titanium dioxide, sodium benzoate, silica, sodium bisulfite, aluminum powder, calcium propionate, copper powder, and iron oxide. Water helps in the absorption of the product. The "butylene glycol" is the ingredient that makes up the cream that is usually used. It is an antifungal and deodorant-like substance that is added to the product to help it break down. The "glycerin" is the main ingredient, but the ingredient "butylene glycol dicaprylate/dicaprate" is a preservative.
