The Terminology of Skin Care Ingredients


I was asked to explain the Terminology I am using to describe my recipes on Chanty's Forum and decided to post here the description of that terms, hope it will be useful:

Anti-inflammatory - helping to reduce or prevent certain signs of inflammation.

Anti-microbial - helping to prevent or inhibit the growth of microorganisms such as bacteria and viruse.

Antioxidant - helping to reduce the effects of free-radical damage.

Astringent - helping to tighten up the skin and close up pores.

Base – just a base of the mixture.

Carrier Oils - are used to carry the Essential Oils and other elements onto the skin.

Emollient – ingredients with soft ening and soothing effect on the skin

Emulsifier - helping to stable the blend of oil and water phases.

Enhancer -  providing the best “Carrier” property, which is penetrating the skin quickly.

Exfoliate/Scrub - removing the top layer of dead skin cells.

Herbal Infusion in Oil (the same as maceration) – just a Herbal Extract in Oil (check the Herbs for the fat-soluble elements)

Moisturizing Oil – providing a moistures barrier, preventing dehydration of the skin.

Nourishing Oil – rich in essential fatty acids and Vitamins.

Supplement – additional ingredients in the mixture.

I am not a specialist, and my English is far from to compete with the dictionary, but I've tried :).

Good Luck :)

P.S. I've found a really good "Cosmetic Ingredients Reference Guide & Dictionary".
You can download a very useful "LEXICON OF LIPID NUTRITION" in pdf format (You'll need Adobe Acrobat Reader to open this file).

Free Parking Software for Town Houses, Condominiums, and Businesses Solves Parking Problems
Searching for a parking space is such as frustrating routine activity for lots of people in cities all over the world. This search is burning over a million barrels of oil of the world each day. There are also 4-parking spaces every vehicle in the US and almost all streets are most of the time, empty, which leads to urban environments that are ironically doing far more to accommodate the vehicles than people. As the global population continuously urbanize, without a convenience-driven and well-planned retreat from cars, these sort of parking problems will worsen.
http://webparkingsoftware.com software is the first step in the right decision. It involves using low-cost sensors, mobile phone-enabled, and real time data collection automated payment systems enabling people to reserve parking in advance or predict accurately where they can find a spot. When deployed as a system, free parking software thereby reduces car emissions in the urban centers by means of reducing the necessity for the people to circle the city blocks needlessly searching for parking. Furthermore, it permits the cities to manage their parking supply carefully.
This free parking software is now being developed in many different states and cities around the United States and some other countries. For instance, in LA, smart meters and low-power sensors are tracking the occupancy of parking spaces across the Hollywood district, one of the most congested areas. The users will be able to access this occupancy data in order to determine the availability of the spots and then pay for them with their mobile phones. Other than the environmental benefits and lending convenience, free parking software is improving the utilization of the current parking, which lead to greater revenue for parking owners.
These programs will be able to make great differences on a neighborhood level, but more widespread development and deployment is necessary for free parking software to change the cities and to contribute to the transportation sector pollution reductions greenhouse gas. One problem is that there are no citywide solutions all over the fragmented private and public parking providers. The occupancy data has a tendency to have many owners and is not accessible or standardized in a way that may enable software developers to turn into user-friendly applications. Thereby, individual smart parking efforts are so far successful locally, but uncoordinated, and operates in their own entrepreneurial or bureaucratic vacuums without a need to take gap between current free parking software and more widespread transportation system planning is an enormous missed opportunity for the cities to reduce the transportation related emissions.
Moreover, free parking software has been hindered by a lack of insight into the complete benefits of this software, specifically when compared to the cost of building extra parking spaces. Lack of collaboration between communities with the parking software programs, as well as lack of coordination between hardware providers, municipalities, and developers is also contributing to the slower adoption of smart parking. Nevertheless, it is possible to overcome all these issues. Cities will be able further accelerate these advantages by means of updating the land use and building codes policies to reflect the reduced need for parking.
