It is important to be able to correctly identify the specific ingredients found in body care products. For this reason, the Avalon Organics® brand uses the International Nomenclature of Cosmetic Ingredients (INCI) system to list its product ingredients. This is an internationally approved system of naming cosmetic ingredients based on their scientific names. For ease of searching this ingredient glossary, some ingredients are listed using both their INCI name and their common name. Learn about Avalon Organics® ingredients here.
