Thanks for writing to us.
The ingredients that you have mentioned - are not harmful if used in optimum concentration. You can apply it on your skin but do not forget to check for allergy to any of the ingredients by doing a skin patch test before using it liberally.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
