    Hydrogenated castor oil PEG 40.

    Our take on PEGs: hydrogenated castor oil PEG 40 is produced from castor oil. The way we see it, the benefits of certain PEGs out way any perceived concerns. Hydrogenated castor oil PEG 40 has been assessed by the Cosmetic Ingredient Review (CIR) Expert Panel which concluded that it was safe for use in cosmetics at concentrations up to 100%.

    Benefits include a way more accessible, easy to use and cheaper price point product compared to other alternatives (which also aren't always available to us in South Africa). PEGs themselves are also considered non toxic as they don't penetrate the skin barrier.

    Full disclosure: the raw materials used to produce PEGs are petroleum derivatives. In the past, PEG production methods allowed for certain toxic impurities to sometimes contaminate the end product. However, reputable ingredient suppliers have long since eliminated these impurities.

    Product rating: Grey.
