How to understand a ingredients list

A typical cosmetic label can be broken up into three parts. The top third of a cosmetic label usually makes up 90-95% of the products ingredients. the second third makes up 5-8% and the last third 1-3%. See the diagrams for a graphical breakdown of a typical off the shelf moisturiser ingredient list.
