More popularly known as common table salt. Used primarily as a binding agent in skincare products and occasionally as an abrasive in scrub products.
Perhaps the most common use of sodium chloride in cosmetics is as a thickening agent. Salt is commonly used to thicken the water (also known as aqueous) phase of shampoos, body washes, and non-soap facial cleansers.
