Cosmetics are substances used to enhance the appearance or odor of the human body. Cosmetics include skin-care creams, lotions, powders, perfumes, lipsticks, fingernail and toe nail polish, eye and facial makeup, permanent waves, colored contact lenses, hair colors, hair sprays and gels, deodorants, baby products, bath oils, bubble baths, bath salts, butters and many other types of products. Their use is widespread, especially among women in Western countries. A subset of cosmetics is called "make-up," which refers primarily to colored products intended to alter the user's appearance. Many manufacturers distinguish between decorative cosmetics and care cosmetics.
The manufacture of cosmetics is currently dominated by a small number of multinational corporations that originated in the early 20th century, but the distribution and sale of cosmetics is spread among a wide range of different businesses. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) which regulates cosmetics in the United States defines cosmetics as: "intended to be applied to the human body for cleansing, beautifying, promoting attractiveness, or altering the appearance without affecting the body's structure or functions." This broad definition includes,any material intended for use as a component of a cosmetic product. The FDA specifically excludes soap from this category.

Zanthoxylum alatum extract:Has no known benefit for skin when applied topically (Source: Natural Medicines Comprehensive Database, www.naturaldatabase.com).
Zanthoxylum piperitum:See Szechuan pepper.
zedoary oil:Fragrant oil that can be a skin irritant, though there is also research showing that components of zedoary can have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties (Source: Inflammation Research, December 1998, pages 476~81).
zeolite:One of a group of minerals used as an absorbent in cosmetics. It has been shown to have anticancer properties (Source: Journal of Cancer Research and Clinical Oncology, January 2002, pages 37~4).
zinc:Studies in the 1970s linked zinc with a positive effect on acne, but those studies were never duplicated and zinc is not considered to have any real significance for skin. Taken orally, zinc may have effects for wound healing and other health benefits, but these are not experienced when it is applied topically. It can be a skin irritant.
zinc carbonate:See calamine.
zinc gluconate:A combination of zinc with a form of glucose (a sugar) that is commonly used in cold lozenges for its antiviral effects. A study reported in Dermatology (2001, volume 203, issue 2, page 40) evaluated the place of zinc gluconate in relation to antibiotics in the treatment of acne vulgaris. Zinc was compared to minocycline [an antibiotic] in a multicenter randomized double-blind trial. 332 patients received either 30 milligrams elemental zinc or 100 milligrams minocycline over 3 months. The primary endpoint was defined as the percentage of the clinical success rate on day 90?The study concluded that inocycline and zinc gluconate are both effective in the treatment of inflammatory acne, but minocycline has a superior effect evaluated to be 17% in our study.?Whether or not this relates to topical applications is unknown. Note: High doses of zinc can be toxic. Avoid taking more than 100 mg of zinc per day from a supplement (Source: www.drweil.com). It is also recommended that you take a daily multivitamin with minerals, because increased levels of zinc mean that the body requires more copper and manganese.
zinc oxide:Inert earth mineral used as a thickening, whitening, lubricating, and sunscreen ingredient in cosmetics. One manufacturer of zinc oxide has heavily promoted this ingredient as being the only option for broad-spectrum sun protection, but this has not been proven from other independent research. Along with titanium dioxide, zinc oxide is considered to have no risk of skin irritation, though both of these minerals may clog pores. See UVA.source: Mineral.Provides chemical and physical protection from sun exposure (UVA, UVB rays). .
zinc phenolsulfonate:Antimicrobial agent that can also be a skin irritant.
zinc sulfate:A chemical resulting from the interaction of zinc with sulfuric acid. There is little research showing this to be beneficial for skin. The little information there is shows it doesnt help skin healing (Source: Acta Dermato-Venereologica, Supplemental, 1990, volume 154, pages 1~6) and it can be a skin irritant. There is no research showing it to be effective for treating acne (Source: International Journal of Dermatology, April 1985, pages 188~90). It can be a skin irritant. See zinc.
Zingiber officinale Roscoe:See ginger extract.
Zingiber zerumbet:See ginger extract.
Zingiberaceae:See ginger extract.
Zizyphus jujube:Chinese jujube, Zizyphus jujuba, is one of the five major fruits of China, where some 300 varieties of it are grown. There is no research showing it to have benefit on skin.
Zea Mays (Corn) Silk Extract:source: Corn (Non-GMO).Provides a smooth texture and relieves the skin of excess humidity. .
Zinc Sulfate:source: Mineral.Astringent, destroys harmful micro-organisms on skin, anti-bacterial, speeds healing of wounds, essential mineral found in skin cells, stimulates the activity of over 100 enzymatic functions such as DNA synthesis and wound healing. .
Zingiber Officinale (Ginger) Root Oil:source: Ginger Root.Stimulates detoxification and micro-circulation, purifies blood and lymphatic fluid (expedites the healing of acne), provides anti-bacterial and anti-fungal actions. .
