Declaration of soaps in LOIHi everyone,I’ve come across the following LOI for a shampoo:
Aqua, Cocos nucifera (coconut) oil, Pinus banksiana (pine) extract,
Medicago Sativa (Alfalfa) extract, Matricaria chamomilla (chamomile)
flower extract, Echinacea purpurea flower extract, Urtica dioca (nettle)
leaf extract, Trifolium pratense (clover) flower extract, Camelia
Sinensis (Green Tea) Leaf Extract, Equisetum arvense (Horse Tail)
extract, Olea europaea (olive) fruit oil, Glycerin, Citric Acid,
Lavandula angustifolia (lavender) oil, Citrus Bergamia (Bergamot) Oil,
Pelargonium Graveolens (Rose Geranium) Oil.I’m confused about the coconut oil in there, so high on the list. Surely that isn’t really just coconut oil, but presumably liquid soap from coconut oil, Potassium Cocoate?If so, is it legal to just write Cocos nucifera (coconut) oil, when it’s effectively Potassium Cocoate (and Glycerin)?
