Ethylene/Acrylic Acid Copolymer is a synthetic polymer used as a binder and film-former in dyes, adhesives and recently, skin creams. There is not much information available on Ethylene/Acrylic Acid Copolymer beyond its thickening and binding properties.
Safety Measures/Side Effects:
Although Ethylene/Acrylic Acid Copolymer has been approved for use in skin care products, it is done so with caution. Even the Cosmetic Ingredient Review panel warns that it must be used with caution and under certain qualifications, including careful formulation to avoid irritation. It may contain impurities, and is can be toxic when absorbed through the skin at high levels. Therefore, it is only a safe ingredient in skin care products when there is a guaranteed low absorption rate.
