INCI to English, please...

“INCI” stands for International Nomenclature of Cosmetic Ingredients. Any product which is sold in the European Union must use INCI in describing ingredients. That way no matter what language the rest of the label is in, the ingredients can be understood.

Gilden Tree products have sold in the UK for years, and most of our labels are EU compliant, so their ingredients are in INCI.

To help make it easier to understand, we’ve created quick reference list of ingredients in INCI with the English translation. If an ingredient isn’t listed, it just means it stays the same.
