Using our FDA-provided label, here are some examples of inactive ingredients and their function/use: polyglyceryl-3 distearate and sorbitan isostearate with water form a lotion of the UV filters; stearic acid and carbomer with triethanolamine thicken and stabilize the lotion, making it less prone to separation; dimethicone improves the lotion's spreadability while reducing "soaping" (whitening) during product application; disodium EDTA ties up common environmental metal ions, such as calcium, magnesium, and iron, helping to keep the product free of microbial growth (methylparaben and propylparaben further assist in this area); and octadecene/MA copolymer imparts water resistance to the product.
