SupercalifrgilisticexpealidociousRemember this invented word from the 1964 Disney musical Mary Poppins? Sometimes it’s fun to tango with tongue twisters. Reading mainstream skin care labels provides plenty of practice.

Let’s see how you do:

  • Triethanolamine, methylparaben, iodopropynyl butylcarbamate – Oil of Olay
  • Phenylbenzimidazole Sulfonic Acid – Loreal Active Daily Moisture Lotion
  • Pentaerythrityl Tetra-di-t-butyl Hydroxyhydrocinnamate – Aveeno Positively Radiant with SP 30
  • Pentaerythrityl Tetraethylhexanoate – Neutrogena Ageless Intensives Deep Wrinkle Serum

In all seriousness, big chemical words obscure understanding and confuse customers. They identify man-made chemicals that have, with mass production, preempted personal care products because they’re cheaper, patentable and easier to work with.

Many are said to be safe in small amounts. Others have questionable safety and are prohibited in other countries.

When you read Second Nature Skin care labels you’ll only see ingredients like cranberry seed oil, oatmeal, yucca root powder, argan oil, and hibiscus extract. We use ingredients like this because they represent the best nature has to offer for your skin.

Nature has an abundance of skin nourishing ingredients. At Second Nature Skin we believe skin responds better to nature than synthetics. We also believe you have a right to know what’s in your skin care. The product should work well and be simple, pure and understandable.

Being able to pronounce what’s in it is just an added benefit.

… Back to Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious. According to Wikipedia, the roots of the word are: “super (above), cali (beauty), fragilistic (delicate), expiali (to atone), and docious (educable).

When put together it means, more or less, “Atoning for educability through delicate beauty.”
