I'd like to use Schema.org for a series of product specs pages.

The products are cosmetics (shampoos, creams, etc.) and ideally an INCI declaration will be included for every product.

I'd like to use Schema.org in the declaration, but I cannot find a suitable category in Schema.org. Ingredients is meant for cooking recipes, and ActiveIngredient for (medical) drugs and dietary supplements.

Did I overlook some part of the tree? Any ideas for a workaround? Or am I trying to do something out of scope?

Can you explain how this tool helps in more detail? – John Conde Apr 12 '14 at 13:03
It provides you with the code that you need to add to your page for the choosed markup. – Dejan Toteff Apr 12 '14 at 13:06
As far as I have seen, this tool is not useful for the type of data in question. – guillem Apr 13 '14 at 8:46
If one cannot find the type of content, that wants to highlight, then this content should not be highlighted. – Dejan Toteff Apr 13 '14 at 17:11
