Well, almost every famous controversial ingredient is fine with me. Alcohol as long as it is not on the top 5 ingredients. Fragrance as long as it is on the last three ingredients. Parabens because it is one of the safest preservative and there is no solid evidence about parabens in skincare products affecting your hormones. Silicone because it actually seals moisture in my dry skin and it has a smooth finish.

Sorry a bit unrelated but just because it's towards the end of the ingredient list, doesn't mean there's the lowest amount of it. Roughly passed the first six ingredients, ingredients aren't in order of concentration. It's a bit of a trick to put ingredients that people are 'afraid' of at the end so it seems like there's hardly any in it.

ACV. I can't help it. It's really great for fungal acne. Inkey list has acv so that's great. Even a local brand from my place has acv lines ( skin genie )
