Cosmetic chemicals are chemicals used as an ingredient for formulation of cosmetic products. Cosmetic chemicals can be in the form of moisturizers, thickening agents, surfactants, or additives. Addition of chemicals improvises the appearance of the final product (cosmetics). These chemicals are mainly added to the cosmetics as a preservative, cleanser, moistener, and conditioner and also for giving them a fresh and persistent color.
