    Maybe just my weak mind…. but I have no idea what you are asking? Can you rephrase?

    In the USA… We have the FDA… that gives guidelines on INCI format….and is supposed to reign in false claims. 😆 Trust me…..creative liberties are still rampant, and the ‘use it till you get caught’ theory is the rule among small companies and mommy bloggers. Ignorance is the best defence….right? 😉

      I remember that @Perry44 said that till level superior or equal to 1 ingredients must listed by decreasing level then it doesn’t matter.

        Yes….anything above 1% inclusion rate must be listed in descending order. Below 1% anything goes….and does go…in the name of formula protection.

        I consider INCI contstruction….the 2nd most entertaining portion of the process…. listing the ingredients in a plausible, but completely different order….to keep the copy-cats at bay….and guessing.

        Most of the beginners have no idea….and think reading an INCI is descending order….start to finish. 🤣 Makes them so interesting…..when you read their synopsis of products.

    The FDA has guidance on their website about cosmetic labeling

    Since I formulate in the US…. many of my ingredients are included at rates of 1% or .99%. This is due to where I want them to fall on the INCI.
