PEG-60 Almond Glycerides description

PEG-60 almond glycerides is the polyethylene glycol (PEG) derivative of fatty acids from almond oil. This ingredient functions as an emollient, skin-conditioning agent, and emulsifier, among others. It has plant (that being the almond) and synthetic properties and is not considered a problematic ingredient unless you have a nut allergy that includes almonds. A 2020 assessment of the independent Cosmetic Ingredient Review panel found that PEG-60 almond glycerides were not irritating, even in concentrations up to 20%.
