Stabilisers

Another collective term for a wide range of ingredients, Stabilisers help to keep active ingredients and extracts stable in a topical formula that is safe to use on the skin. A common example is in antioxidant serums where Vitamin E is used to stabilise Vitamin C. There are also ingredients that are used to stabilise the pH of a product, helping to keep it balanced to avoid excessive acidity or alkalinity.
