the Gloopy Glossary

Personal care ingredients do not exist in a vacuum. These functional tags assigned to them represent only a generalized categorization. For example, instead of referring to this elephant → 🐘 by its specific subfamily nomenclature “elephantinae,” we refer to it here by its more generalized “mammalia” class. Both are correct tags, but the former is more accurate if only because it’s more specific. Refer to Beaker’s Know List for more info.
