List Of Ingredients That Contant Corn or Corn Derivatives

My hope is to grow this list. But this is what I have been able to find so far. Of course, here at The Hungry Owl & Fit Flamingo all our skincare products are corn, dairy, gluten, nut & soy free.

  • Citric acid
  • Glycerin
  • Cornstarch
  • Zea Mays
  • Corn oil
  • Germ oil
  • Kernel meal
  • Zea Mays gluten protein
  • Potassium Cornate
  • Primulin (anthocyanin)

You can guarantee that if you see Zea Mays listed, it has something to do with corn. Why? The scientific name for corn is Zea Mays. The FDA requires any cosmetic manufactured in the United States to be labeled using scientific or INCI name. Although, it is difficult for a lay person to understand, it’s a way to standardize ingredient name to avoid consumer confusion. For example, in New Jersey depending where you are a sandwich made of deli meat, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, salt, pepper & vinegar can be called a Hero, Hoagie or Sub. Same with ingredients but by using a scientific name, you can know what’s truly in your products.

I hope that makes sense. We welcome comments, & suggestions. Please be polite & courteous. Thank you.
