What it is
Inulin is derived from chicory root.
What it does
Inulin is a humectant: it draws water from the environment into the skin, thus helping to keep it hydrated.
In addition, it is also used as a skin-conditioning agent. That means that it makes skin soft and smooth.
Inulin is generally considered to be safe.
